Weeds: Soundtrack of the Season

On a recent miserable day outside, I went walking/jogging on the track at New Ulm’s Vogel Fieldhouse (which is a great place). There my fellow travelers and I went around and around with “oldies” serenading us from the speakers. The music took me back to times and places decades past. ...
