Each week I will share three things I like – It could be a book, a movie, a podcast, an album, a photo, an article, a restaurant, a food item, a beverage, or anything else I simply enjoy and think you might too. You can find a whole pile of things, especially books, I like and recommend HERE.
1. “Sometimes I Cry” by Chris Stapleton
Just listen, then listen again, and a third time too.
Gardettos are simply the best snack. They are like chips, but with muscles. Like Chex Mix, but for grown-ups. They have faithfully accompanied me through many road trips and football games. When lunch has been pushed to the fringes of an otherwise busy life Gardettos are there for you. They have neither too much of anything nor too little and the only disappointing aspect is when they run out.
3. John Steinbeck Audio Books
I am an avid audiobook listener, and John Steinbeck’s books stand out as the best I have listened to. The performer of an audiobook makes an enormous difference, but it seems to me that regardless of reader, Steinbeck’s books were meant to be read aloud by one person for the appreciation of others. I’ve listened to East of Eden and The Grapes of Wrath and they are brilliant, bleak and brilliant. His sentences are so sharp and his characters so real that even something as miserable as jogging becomes enjoyable while listening to these (at least from the neck up).
