I have a mantle clock. It is just a small little thing. I received it as a going away gift when I left my position as a Shipper / Lead Hand at a small manufacturing company back in the winter of ’99.
My understanding of the Steve Windwood song by the above name, which was released in 1981, is that it had a remarkable lineup of musicians playing the instruments.
If you count Steve Windwood that is.
He played all of the instruments, recording them one by one until all was done. Very patient…very talented!
The end result is a pretty good song, with a pretty good message.
So, the other day I found myself in a situation where I saw a chance….and I took it.
I have had a motorcycle license for over 30 years, but sadly, my own motorcycle has become a permanent fixture of my garage since 2001.
As luck would have it, I tripped over a 2008 Suzuki GS500F at a used car dealer. It had been there quite awhile, and they were apparently very eager to get it off their showroom fllor. I offered them $900 less than they were asking for it and they accepted!
It had just over 1000 miles on it!!!!
If you want to see happiness, picture me on a motorcycle for the first time in well over a decade. That night, I went for a nice drive with the woman I LoVe holding on behind me.
This morning, on Google News portal, under WORLD NEWS, the following articles:
WHO backs use of experimental Ebola drugs in West Africa outbreak
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin Kiss During Romantic Dinner in Italy …
From my blurry eyed, just woke up perspective THIS is what is wrong with our society!!! Why should I care that George Clooney and his fiance engaged in PDA??? Hell, if they saw some of the things that my gf and I have done in public…oh wait, different blog!
My point being….fluff news does NOT belong under “World” subheadings!!!
Still, I wonder what they had for dinner?
