David Littlefield handed me this photo just the other day… of himself and our Vinnie Lang (sunglasses) playing the CT River Raft Race – July 1984 – as the “Distant Cousins”. Photo given by David Littlefield, photographer unknown.  Vinnie played an electric bass with us and is mostly the one responsible for us including you the audience in our laughs whereas before we would cover the mics and have the jokes between ourselves.  Talented guitarist and several other instruments.  Vinnie removed to Maine in around 1990 and died there in 1996.

Oh Griswold tree, oh Griswold tree…

By now a traditional repost…   See you on Monday for OUR Christmas!

Oh Griswold Tree, Oh Griswold TreeGriswold Tree
Upon the coal stove eternally.
Oh Griswold Tree, Oh Griswold Tree
A relic from antiquity
For Christmastide and St-Patrick’s spray
For Mother’s and for Groundhog Day
Oh Griswold Tree, Oh Griswold Tree
In every tap room photo be!
