Since today's Happy Hour theme is opulence (see two posts below) we decided to go upmarket and listen to the Brandenburg concertos... ALL six of 'em. But Number Three is our favorite...
I defy anyone to NOT hum along... or play a lil air-cello or air-violin. Bach was rock 'n' roll before there was such a thing.
We'll return to our mean-spirited musical posts at some point in the near future.
Update, 1715 hrs: You know how sometimes "things" just seem to work out right, e.g., everything comes together like it should... no ifs, ands, or buts? Today's Happy Hour was (and is) a lot like that, in that our cigar lasted for two beers and the complete Brandenburg song-cycle, which is to say all six concertos.
It was SO good, in fact, that we've decided to extend Happy Hour. All we have to do at this point is select our next cigar, our musical accompaniment, and decide if we'll stay with beer or move on to gin and tonics... coz the weather is just perfect (81 degrees and 20% relative humidity) for that sorta thang. It don't hardly get better than this, Gentle Reader. All that's missing is suitable company.
