Sammy's got the Deep Sloth Blues

Uncle Paul and Sammy Playin the Deep Sloth Blues

Hooboy. We opened gifts on Christmas Eve, and junior gave my brother a carved wooden sloth, with a hooked tail for hanging upside down. Lord knows what goes through my bro's head sometimes (but it seems to run in the family) -- but he showed up on Christmas morning with his steel guitar and the sloth, which he introduced as Sammy, discreetly hanging from his pocket and an impish grin on his face.

He took out the guitar and began to play the blues. After a few bars he gave Junior a wink and pulled Sammy out of his pocket. And the rest is cell phone video history. We shot two more takes after the first song. Unfortunately I don't have video editing software to trim the ends, but honey when I do, Sammy the Sloth will be the next YouTube phenomenon! ;-)

Doesn't Sammy look like he's totally scared
spitless and praying his tail off???



  1. Hello there! Great blog. However, I hate to burst your "sloth" bubble. The little carved critter is an Otter. :-) Otters being my favorite critters, I just had to let you know. Happy New Year from Pamela in Tucson.

  2. Uh-oh! Lol. Well let's not tell Junior or his uncle OK??? 8-)
