Not Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack...

Let's skip the fact this tune might could be topical and focus on its relationship to the post immediately below.  I'd wager more than a few of you haven't heard this tune, Gentle Readers, given a lot of you are puppies (relatively speaking, and that would be relative to ME) and the song being over 30 years old.  So just to enlighten you... here's Jackson Browne singin' "Rosie:"

But Rosie, you're all right
You wear my ring
When you hold me tight
Rosie, that's my thing
When you turn out the light
I've got to hand it to me
Looks like it's me and you again tonight, Rosie
The song was released in '78, which was well past the time when I did all those deployments and unaccompanied TDYs to places where female company was virtually non-existent.  Still and even, I DID do more than a few extended bid'niz trips after the Air Force.  This tune was quite appropriate during those lil excursions, separated as I was from my usual, customary and (mostly) reasonable bedmate.  Just a reminder, yet again: let's not talk about the here and now, mmm-kay?


  1. You're really beating this subject to death.

  2. Yeah, well... moderation was never my strong suit.

  3. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
