Wayne and I weren’t able spend the afternoon today listening and being entertained by one of our favorite local entertainers. It’s always disappointing when we have a conflict. He’s affectionately referred to as “Mark the Singing Plumber”.
In addition to being an awesome plumber, he’s an even better singer. Often spotted in quirky, funky coffee shops when he isn’t saving people from plumbing nightmares, he weaves storytelling in between songs. Some songs are folk songs, some are Mark’s originals. Oddly none are about plumbing.
As my music played today, one of my favorite Mark Originals started playing. It’s an ode to a dog that has become an ode to many dogs, and a few people, over the years. “Boomer” always makes me smile, sing loudly, and howl.
Sorry we missed you today, Mark. We hope to see you soon.
