I forgot about all the country vinyl I inherited. It was the greatest day of 2007.
The old dude across the street died about a year ago. His daughters gave all his vinyl to the lesbians next door. They then called some dude who buys vinyl. Thankfully, I cherry-picked about 3 mail crates full of country music before the vinyl buyer showed up. I gave the lesbians $30. I must have about a dozen records by Merle Haggard, George Jones, Dolly Parton, and Bob Wills. I probably have a 1/2 dozen records by Doc Watson, David Allen Coe, John Prine, Waylon Jennings, Hank, and a shitload of various bluegrass and cajun music. I'm still discovering new records. Yes, I'm bragging again. Sorry. The beauty of the story was that I called in sick at my old job for no good reason. Had I not done so, the vinyl buyer dude woulda picked those lesbians clean.
I think the dead guy woulda wanted me to have the records. I think he liked me good enough.
