They’re not native to North America and have few predators. At the start of winter they come into the house. They are slow and not too smart, so easy to catch, but you don’t want to squash ‘em!

They're native here. We've got something like five types. Not a fan.

A friend said they just got paid $75.00 to play at the library. I didn't think to ask who the audience was, children, adults, etc. But this Song made me think of that kind of 'market' for a very literary use of words and imagery. If you have enough of them to do a half-hour show, or more, it might be a way to pick up some quick bucks on a daytime, even human schedule.

Good idea, Gary. Libraries are always looking to put on events as they reposition themselves away from just a place to find books. At least, I know our local library does. I'm not sure how well attended they are if they are just for entertainment. I think kiddies events do well enough, as parents are happy to find a way to occupy their offspring. Otherwise, I think informative events do best - local history, gardening, genealogy.

If I were to do an event, I don't think it would necessarily stir up a lot of interest, but people who were there anyway would probably stop to listen. Actually, a micro audience might be no bad thing, as I have never performed live and I'd need to ease into it. I'd also need to learn the guitar properly or else just turn on a speaker playing the instrumental tracks and warble in the direction of the listeners. Not sure if that's even an option without looking foolish. For my debut, I'm sure I could fill the place with curious friends  

I have no shortage of this kind of song, and regret not being a performer, as I always picture them being performed live, and usually in a more intimate setting like a coffee shop, small bar or - why not? - a library.

Well, I do have connections. My daughter interned at Sesame Street last year.

Funny that I don't actually start out to write children's songs, but that's how people see them. I must just be a big kid.
