Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack

So there we were... sunning ourselves in the most-brilliant early afternoon sun, sipping on our second beer, and occasionally drawing on an Isla del Sol of the Churchill persuasion... when Pandora played the Turtles' "Elenore."  Well, that's all well and good, thinks I, but the Turtles are small beer compared to another "Eleanor" that we know and love.  So we went looking on the Tube O' You for our favorite Eleanor... and found it.

I suppose you had to be there, Gentle Reader.  I WAS there, of course, and the song brings back extraordinary memories that all revolve around this girl.  And that particular time, when we drank wine and listened to Lindesfarne until there was light in the sky.  You know there may be more... and  there was.


  1. Lindesfarne - haven't thought of them in years. Long ago and far away, a girlfriend of mine was extraordinarily fond of them. Experiences ensued that I imagine may have been similar to yours in some regards.

  2. Once again, you introduce me to new thangs.

    1. New to you, but 40 years old on the calendar. ;-)


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