I watched a PBS special on John Denver last night - I'd already decided to blog on "Sunshine On My Shoulders", hoping we could mentally, at least, get out of the grey cold weather depression. Had no idea at the time that was exactly why Denver w... Read more

Sunshine On My Shoulder

Monday, March 02, 2015      10 comments

John Denver, 1971. Per Wikipedia: Denver described how he wrote "Sunshine on My Shoulders": "I wrote the song in Minnesota at the time I call 'late winter, early spring'. It was a dreary day, gray and slushy. The snow was melting and it was too ... Read more

When I got up this morning to let the pups out, I discovered it had snowed all night. No howling winds for a change, so I was surprised to see the snow - at least 5 inches, more in the drifts. My indoor-outdoor sheepskin boots cover my calves to... Read more

Don't Eat Yellow Snow

Friday, February 27, 2015      8 comments

When I started out walking the pups this afternoon, there was snow on the ground. It snowed and the winds blew all night again. We're talking a couple of inches, more where it drifted or was plowed. Sparty stayed inside my jacket for 90 minutes ... Read more

Robin Hood and Little John

Thursday, February 26, 2015      6 comments

From the 1973 Disney animated movie Robin Hood. Android has been using it for ads lately. Roger Miller wrote it, and he sings it in the ads. The tag line for the commercial is "be together . not the same." Read more

Beep Beep

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      5 comments

I'm at the car shop - getting much delayed servicing done. I drive way, way less than the expected milage - like an average of 3000 miles a year. While I'm waiting for them to finish up, I'm playing on line. This is a novelty song, spoken more... Read more

Against the Wind

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      9 comments

More high winds today - gusting 45-50 mph. They died down in the afternoon, so I could walk the pups. Still carried Spartacus over an hour, but he managed to walk 45 minutes just like a real dog. By the way, my yard guy, Robert, showed up today.... Read more

Down on the Corner

Monday, February 23, 2015      9 comments

More wind howling all night, a dusting of snow in my yard this morning. I live in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains, so we get at least a taste of most of the precip that comes our way. Most of the snow melted or blew away by the afternoon.... Read more

Lookin' Out My Backdoor

Sunday, February 22, 2015      8 comments

We're having another "back door cold front" here (most fronts move from west to east. When they come out of the east, it's called a back door front).Yesterday, the high was about 60. In the middle of the night, I heard the winds howling. By the ... Read more

Someone to Watch Over Me

Saturday, February 21, 2015      11 comments

The Gershwin brothers, George & Ira, wrote this one in 1926 for the muscical "Ok, Kay!" Many, many artists have covered it. This is the song I was working on blogging when my forehead nearly hit the keyboard last night. I was sitting there, hea... Read more

Zombies

Friday, February 20, 2015      7 comments

I was working on my blog at work - quiet night, few patients, perfect for blogging - except I went brain-dead and nearly fell asleep several times. Wouldn't have been bad except I had to do competencies and I continued to be brain-dead. Fortuna... Read more

I Started a Joke

Thursday, February 19, 2015      7 comments

From the brothers Gibb - also known as the Bee Gees, comes "I started a Joke", 1968. They wrote and recorded it. Meaning? I'm sure it has some ... just not sure what it is. ... Read more
