Mr. Peanut Gets A Bit Older
But, none the less feistier.

'Little' brother 'Nut just celebrated a birthday. He is no longer the size of his childhood given nickname (he has children that have now taken over that status), but he still lives it (Whatever!? I don't even know what I think I mean by that.).
When I went away to school, Nut stayed in Jersey, 'colleged' (What? That's not a word?) there, and experienced the ever-rich Jersey music scene. When I came home for holidays, new music (on NEW! vinyl) always awaited. We still share it today, when we get a chance.
Thanks, Nut. And, Happy Birthday!

Shadow Of A Man This song, 'Nut used to play in the minivan. His kids LOVED it! (This song, and some Disney song about a baby beluga whale, or something.)

It's Only Make Believe This might be the best karaoke song ever! Well, Peanut will just sing it any chance he gets.
