Perfect Time

Hello from the J Ryan Trio. It’s January and you know what that means… No? you don’t? Well I haven’t a clue what it means. Hey if we can’t figure it out this correspondence devolves from relevant and newsworthy to spam-filter fodder.

Let’s see, January is:

  • National Book Month – Pretty sure I read that somewhere.
  • National Get Organized Month – Now I think I had that jotted on a post-it, maybe under this coaster? …wait why is that sticky? eww that’s nasty.
  • National Thyroid Awareness Month – Are you aware of your thyroid? Good, just checkin’.
  • International Creativity Month – This reminder brought to you by our stale and formulaic newsletter.
  • National Hobby Month – Music is a hobby. In Wisconsin drinking is a hobby, enjoy both with the JRT.
  • High Tech Month – you are receiving this via email, which was pretty high tech circa 1998.
  • Reference Book Month – In the same month as High Tech month? Maybe it’s National Irony Month.
  • Jan week 2 – National Folic Acid Awareness Week – just be aware, it’s one of our nation’s most beloved acids.
  • Jan 5 was National Bird Day – If you forgot to flip someone the bird on Jan 5, you’ll have to wait a whole ‘nuther year. Gal next to me in traffic today is apparently working ahead.

Bottom line is although we don’t have anything booked for Peculiar People Day on Jan 10, we’d love to see you at any or all of the fine venues below – swing by and have a listen.
