10-17-07 My Journey
I am thinking about what music to subject my friends to, when / if they come to my 50th birthday party next year in
What to put on said discs? Some days, my memory is clearer than others, today it isn’t bad. Probably best if I can actually remember the title (if not the chronology), rather than being reminded by looking it up in my A-Z, huh? There won’t be enough time to give large amounts from each artist – maybe just a track or two. Let the memory decide.
