    Thank you very much! I wish I had nothing to fear. I did something Stoopid when I lived in NYC way back when. My shrink says "don't worry about it." As if it's his "hangover" from more than fifty years ago.

    I had a pal in the Army. He was from Half Moon Bay (what a name!) and a fellow Northern Californian. We went to 'Nam together, afterward I saw him once. He had managed an Officer's Club over there. He was crazy about James Taylor. I think Mr Taylor is great but he never quite floateth the old boateth for me.

    A different fellow California chap flew Scouts, as different a job as you could find. He was awarded 30 Air Medals in a ceremony that finally rewarded if you can call it that Viet-Nam vets medals they should have received earlier. His goofy grin at a Colonel while my friend wore an obvious short hair wig while the officer had to come back to give him medals that the Colonel missed at his first try was beyond priceless. It required a great effort from me not to burst out laughing.

    This is simply a favorite of mine. It's a re-post. Guilty yer honor.



    Hi I'm Daniel ~
    Because sometimes I like to see a song.":O}
    P.S. I hope you don't mind the intrusion George!

    Gulf coast highway, he worked the rails
    He worked the rice fields with their cold dark wells
    He worked the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico
    The only thing we've owned is this old house here by the road
    And when he dies he says he'll catch some blackbird's wing
    And we will fly away to heaven
    Come some sweet blue bonnet spring
    She walked through springtime when I was home
    The days were sweet, our nights were warm
    The seasons changed, the jobs would come
    The flowers fade, and this old house felt so alone
    When the work took me away
    And when she dies she says she'll catch some blackbird's wing
    And she will fly away to heaven
    Come some sweet blue bonnet spring
    Highway 90, the jobs are gone
    We kept our garden, we set the sun
    This is the only place on Earth blue bonnets grow
    And once a year they come and go
    At this old house here by the road
    And when we die we say we'll catch some blackbird's wing
    And we will fly away to heaven
    Come some sweet blue bonnet spring
    Yes when we die we say we'll catch some blackbird's wing
    And we will fly away together
    Come some sweet blue bonnet spring

    When all we do fails us, When the darkness in our natures reaches out for us and threatens to drag us from the light...It is then that we go in search for "Just a little sweetness, just a little light."



    Just a Little Light
    Grateful Dead
    Well, there ain't nobody safer than someone who doesn't care.
    And it isn't even lonely when no one's ever there.
    I had a lot of dreams once, but some of them came true,
    The honey's sometimes bitter when fortune falls on you.
    So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night.
    And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise all right.
    But here you're trembling like a sparrow, I will try with all my might
    To give you just a little sweetness,
    Just a little sweetness,
    Just a little light.
    I have always heard that virtue ought be its own reward,
    But it never comes so easy when you're living by the sword.
    It's even harder to be heartless when you look at me that way.
    You're as mighty as the flower that will grow the stones away.
    Even though I been a stranger, full of irony and spite
    Holding little but contempt for all things beautiful and bright,
    Something shines around you and it seems, to my delight
    To give me just a little sweetness,
    Just a little sweetness,
    Just a little sweetness,
    Just a little light.
    This could be just another highway, coiled up in the night.
    You could be just another white-tail, baby, stranded on my brights,
    There's a tingling recognition
    Like the sound of distant thunder
    And I begin to wonder
    If the love I've driven under
    Won't ignite.
    So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night.
    And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise all right.
    Something shines around you that seems, to my delight
    To give me just a little sweetness,
    Just a little sweetness,
    Just a little sweetness,
    Just a little light.

    Sally Go Round the Roses

    Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the roses)
    Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the pretty roses)
    Roses they can't hurt you (roses they can't hurt you)
    Roses they can't hurt you (no, the roses they can't hurt you)
    Sally don't you go, don't you go downtown
    Sally don't you go, don't you go downtown
    Saddest thing in the whole wide world
    Is to see your baby with another girl
    Don't you go downtown (Sally go 'round)
    No, don't you go downtown ('round and 'round)
    Yes, because the saddest thing in the whole wide world
    Is to see your baby with another girl
    Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the roses)
    Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the pretty roses)
    They won't tell your secret (they won't tell your secret)
    They won't tell your secret (no, the roses won't tell your secret)
    Sally baby cry, let your hair hang down
    Sally baby cry, let your hair hang down
    Sit and cry where the roses grow
    You can sit and cry, not a soul will know
    Let your hair hang down (Sally go 'round)
    Yes, let your hair hang down, yeah ('round and 'round)
    Because the saddest thing in the whole wide world
    Is to see your baby with another girl
    Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the roses)
    Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the pretty roses)
    Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the roses)
    Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the roses)

    Can you hear what our grand parents heard in this piece... I was a push over they had me with the title!
    "I don't want to set the world on fire, I just want to start a flame in your heart!"

    I don't mind one bit when you go to find the lyrics of a song. They're important.

    I never considered the original to be a "tender poem of young love." Surely you jest good sir?

    My oldest friend recommended this movie. I liked it a lot. I forgot that there were serious moments along with the comedy.
    Thank you for posting this Dan!
