    Awful news. We have a winter home in Gulfport, FL. John has a home there as well. I always have hoped that I would see him walking around the small downtown area or perhaps playing for fun at a small bar there but no luck. Thoughts with John and his family for a recovery.

    I have been thinking of John and his family since reading this news on Instagram.

    From what I've read recently, just about everybody will contract this virus. It affects everyone differently. Some develop pneumonia, which is particularly dangerous. There are already four of these ‘permanent’ viruses in circulation that are amongst us. This one is new and no one has much immunity. Coupled with the fact it can live for days on certain surfaces, means it will become increasingly difficult to avoid. That said, prayers for John. My favorite was always, “Donald and Lydia” particularly this verse:

    Bunk beds, shaved heads, Saturday night,
    A warehouse of strangers with sixty watt lights.
    Staring through the ceiling, just wanting to be
    Lay one of too many, a young PFC

    Anyone that's ever gone through basics can relate!

    Yes, I just saw that. He hasn't been well lately, and I doubt he is in any kind of shape to fight this.

    Yeah, you can see his health has been a struggle...for a guy who is only 73, the wear-n-tear really shows.

    John's stuff is always so poignant, even when he is kidding around.

    There is some depth in his material.

    Not many who can pry into your soul with their music like John Prine can.

    Hope he can pull through.
