Wilderness Walk: Brief and Newsy

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning Wilderness. While you're reading this, I'll be at work (yes, teachers work mid-summer, especially band folk).

BUT... while I'm writing this, I'm pretty drunk. Went over to a (retired) friend's house and... a bottle of wine, a bottle of champagne (all me) and a whiskey sour later, and here I am. so the good news: there's more new. The bad news: my grammar won't be as good as normal.

for your music, enjoy one of the funniest songs of all time. Courtesy of my favorite american composer, Lenny B.
