Peter has one of the best deadpan expressions I've ever seen. Is that Vermont?

Nahh, it's lawyering. When your own client does or says something really stupid and you have to sit on your natural reaction to it...

Fun thing happened. Was jamming on Carter Family stuff with Pete Peterson and Kellie and them and they gave me their new "Waking up Tillie" CD, "Groundhog Day." Kellie has a song on there, "Forgiveness," by Sarah Hawker. Liner notes say that the author won the '04 Merlefest songwriting contest with it.

The Lonesome Sisters were at the last Old Songs. I was in the used instrument sales place and saw a new-looking Epiphone EF500 Masterbilt - the new Chinese all-solid-wood line - the model that's essentially an OM. It said on the tag that it was consigned by Sarah Hawker who had won it in the '04 Merlefest songwriting contest. So I kept going back to look at it and the price kept getting reduced...So guess where it ended up?

I guess I'll have to name it "Forgiveness."
