Blurb: Sixteen-year-old Jolene, named after the girl in the Dolly Parton song, is from a long line of lowlifes, but at least they’re musical lowlifes.

Jolene’s dad, a failed bass player, has gone back to the family demolition business and lives by the company motto: “We do not build things; we only tear them down.” But Jolene and her big brother, Matt, are true musicians, writing songs together that make everything Jo hates about their lives matter less.

Since I’ve moved my laptop from the office to the dinette, I’ve seen a lot of squirrels. This, however, is the first time that a baby has visited. I cannot tell you how many different squirrels visit me in one day’s time, so why aren’t there more babies? So cute! Sorry the pic isn’t better. It’s taken through the window so I wouldn’t scare her away.
