I've been an absentee blogger this week. I've been taking advantage of a break from school to clean the Yen household from top to bottom, clearing out the dust from the now-finished renovations.
I'm happy to report that this includes the backyard, which turned out beautifully, and just in time for the birthday party Kim is throwing me on Saturday.
And most importantly, my gargoyle is back in his place of glory in the garden.

1. A tale of a country boy struggling in the big city, from the late, great Jim Croce.
2. A big hunk o' seventies Dinosaur Rock.
3. The dB's were one of the great underappreciated bands of the eighties.
4. From the great "Nuggets" collection.
5. From "Nebraska," which is tied with "Born To Run" as my favorite Springsteen album.
6. The Washington Squares were punk musicians in New York City who formed a retro Village style folk trio and did political tunes. This is their take on a traditional folk song.
7. I love me some Spinners. I still have my vinyl copy of "The Best of the Spinners" that my friend T-Mo gave me in college, bless his heart. Or maybe I borrowed it and forgot to return it.
8. From "Infidels," one of my favorite albums of the eighties.
9. I think I wore out my friend Matt's copy of "The Very Best of Roy Orbison" in college. I finally got around to getting a Roy Orbison collection on cd last year.
10. Johnny Cash explaining his wardrobe.
