Don’t get too excited just yet, but Trout Fishing in America is working on a brand new CD project. We’ve already written most of the songs and we’re recording every chance we get. It’s a ton of fun and we’re loving it! (See video) Ok, even though it won’t be finished and released until the Fall, you can go ahead and get excited if you want to. We sure are! The biggest problem we’ve encountered so far has been singing our title cut. If performing Proper Cup of Coffee wasn’t already tough enough, we’ve gone and written a delightful little song called Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers. Right… Go ahead and try this line – Which wristwatches are Swiss wristwatches? We’ll get it right eventually. You will too because, like Proper Cup of Coffee, it’s a sing-a-long!
Our new van, Whitey Ford, is cruising along nicely. Gosh, we already have over 12,000 miles on it. (note- it was a used ‘new’ van that came with 9,000 miles on it, so don’t be too impressed) That seems mighty unimpressive compared to the accomplishments of our old vehicles. Robert Red Ford was retired at around 540,000 miles. Stretch made it to 480,000. Whitey handles well on the highway, but the Radio/GPS/CD/Dashboard thing is proving most difficult. The instruction manual came in the form of a defective CD that will not play. Luckily, there is a booklet con-taining absolutely no useable information.
Ezra is resourcefully probing the mysteries of advanced technology and has had some success. While Keith did manage to recharge his cell phone, he is hopelessly lost trying to change the dashboard clock to Daylight Savings Time. Oh well, he figures it’ll be right again eventually. Maybe around the time our new CD comes out, or when he can actually sing Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers!
