My iPod Has Issues – Western Writer’s Block

9 Jul

There is a post that needs to be written, but I cannot wrap my mind around the thing. It is on an interesting topic that is right in my wheelhouse. Except, I cannot get it started. The right words will not come to me.

Anyway, I have promised myself that I will not write a post of substance until this one is done. That is why I am writing a post of no substance. Hopefully, putting words on the screen will unblock my mind and get this thing rolling.

Cranking up the iPod might help. This list has a theme that is close to the topic in my mind. You never know. The music might jar something loose.Gunsmoke

    Good luck on your post…it will come to you.
    My favorite song is”My Rifle,my pony and me.”
    To me it is the true song of a cowboy.
    It tells of the loneliness,the love and home!

    My dad plays El Passo on his guitar. It’s one of my favorites in his repertoire.

      That has to be cool to hear. What are some of his other songs?
