Ha ha! We also have this euphonium in Swedish language! Of course it is most often used in scenario of sauna situation, but can apply for whenever such like event occurs e.g. I had a spill at the meeting of PTA, I had a spill in car park with attendant - if you want to hear of two examples in recent past this week of my experience.

Welfare!

The Swedish experience is so foreign to me, Lotti, but you make it all sound so fun!

 

I only list 2 two examples in recent past this week of my experience so as to have a brevity type of correspondence with you. If you need full list for your entertainment or emulation I can provide in PM!

Welfare!

P.S. There is one that you could not perform with the emulation according to laws in your country, so I can omit. Or, I can leave in list so that when travelling after Covid situation you can emulate in full set of list ticks. It is your decision!

I know you already know this, but just for the sake of clarity, what you called "By Her Side" in the notes from last night is actually titled Even I Can See.

Oops! That’s right!
Thank you!

I'm glad to hear they're seriously considering switching platforms. Unfortunately the past few weeks the show has been so stuttery for me it's been hard to watch. 😔

Is there existing the spreadoutsheet of the body part featurings of Wilco members? I have some few rough notes to contribute from certain episodes. I can contact Professor from Stockholm for the guaranteed detailed list for sure. Maybe he even already have in spreadoutsheet form for new common usage.

Welfare!

P.S. I have suspicion that list of Professor from Stockholm will exclude the moob parts from body part featurings. He is not the fan of the moob parts. But we can supplement for thoroughness, no?

Pat often gets overshadowed by Nels but he's such a great musician, it's really cool to hear him (and Jeff and Glenn of course) play Wilco songs in a stripped down setting like that.

What luck to have tuned in last night! I've only watched a few of these shows, and never an entre episode.  I tuned in just in time for How to Fight Lonliness.  

 

I really needed something like that to wrap up the weekend.  Today is "telework is over" day for my wife, and I had to take my dog in for cancer testing this morning, so I was feeling pretty sad about a number of things last night.  These performances and all the silly banter did a god job parting the clouds.

Jeff, I hope your doggo's reports come back as benign or at least treatable! It's so emotionally hard when a pet is suffering.

Does your wife feel ready to re-engage in person at her jobsite? I think we've all gone a bit feral in the past year and a half! Good luck to her.

Last night's show was flat-out charming! I don't use that word for much but it totally fits here. Pat and Glenn were relaxed and enjoying themselves. Agreed on Pat's musical skills! His mouth trumpet rawks! 😄

Thank you.  I feel like I've been grieving over the last year, noticing her getting older and slower and having a bad day every now and then.  I wish I could set that aside and just enjoy the time we have with her with no distractions or conflicted feelings.     

 

Neither me nor my wife are ready to reengage.  I'll have to go back in a couple weeks, and I'm not looking forward to it at all.  There's no part of my job that I can't do 100% satisfactorily from home.   Our workplace is very old fashioned, almost military-like, and does not value flexibility for its employees, so it's going to be a tough and somewhat demoralizing transition.

Is someone still keeping track of all the songs performed on TTS??? Is there anyway to tell how many times My Darling has been performed? I know Jeff's done it at least once.
