Ramble: I’m sorry…so sorry…

I’m Sorry I’m sorry. Oh dear, I’m sorry. I’m SOOOO sorry! Sorry. I’msorryI’msorryI’msorryI’msorryI’msorryI’msorryI’msorryI’msorryI’msorry If I had the time, hours and hours…and hours… I’d count the number of times “I’m Sorry” is said in this house.

READ & RAMBLE: Different Combinations

Many years ago, a musician friend of mine (Rodger Isom) said, “There are no new songs. Every possible combination of musical notes has already been written and re-written and written again.
