The good times are ending. Our Amazon Music trial is over next Thursday. The kids have listened to myriad show tunes and I've played Tomorrow The Green Grass on an endless loop while feeding the calves.  After this we're facing a dilemma of renew or not.

Two Month Paid Vacation

The Coldest Water I Remember
