A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

A Day In The Life

My three sons, AKA Unorganized Hancock, performed for the Skowhegan Maple Fest at the Skowhegan Opera House this past Saturday.

What’s that? You thought I only had two sons? Well, we conceived another the weekend before, and put him together like humans do, so he was ready to take the stage this last weekend. We call him “Slim McGillicuddy.”

I’m not going to spoil the effect by writing about the performance here today. Just watch the video. It’s all in there. I’m even in it, if you look hard enough. No, not that guy. No, not that guy either. I’m that other, other guy.

Donations to our PayPal tip jar for the boys, which you’ll find over in the right-hand column, are greatly appreciated. I don’t know if you’ve heard yet, but gasoline costs real money now.

[Update: Many thanks to Phil in Kollyforneea for helping the boys out]
[Up-Update: Many thanks to Robert in Newcastle upon Tyne for his generous ring on the PayPal gong]
[Upper Platte Update: Many thanks to LJ in Nebraska for his donation and encouragement]
[Yet More Up-To-Date: Many thanks to Suzanne from Santa Ana for helping our lads out]
[Saturday Update: Many thanks to an obviously brilliant man named Stuart from South Carolina for helping the boys out]

    But who was that shifty-looking character that keep popping his head out?

  3. Hi Sam.

    Sam is my hero.

    Hi Dave and Marieanne- Thanks for your kind words.

    Not to rain our your parades, but I'm about a foot taller than the fellow watching from behind the curtain.

    That's an Epiphone Wildkat he's playing. It's a really nifty rig.

  4. because….I live in Northwest nebraska, near Rumford South Dakota, where i spent some working hours almost every day of a 35 year railroad career. Because I adore a woman in westbrook maine, because I like your blog, and because i think the educational establishment from top to bottom in this country needs to be destroyed., a small donation

  5. Yow, heckuva drum sound going on there!
    The guys killed, Sippi. Their musical development is spectacular.
    Congrats on a great gig, fellas!
