Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack

A Dave Mason song (done by Traffic), an old favorite of mine that comes close to expressing the way I'm feelin' at the moment...

Seems the simple things are hardest to explain
We're just gonna come too soon, gettin' all the pain
Footprints in the snow will show whether things are still the same
Till you get [Incomprehensible] someone, help to live again
I can't seem to explain... to myself... the way the American women's defeat in today's gold medal game has affected me, but it's just about all I've been thinking about this afternoon.  As for the song... it's not quite perfect, because our girls didn't take more than they gave; they left it ALL out there on the ice.

So close.  So close.

And now it's back out to the verandah to sit in the sun and contemplate things.


  1. Great tune. I'm just glad that you didn't use "Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys" to express your feelings........................

    1. Thanks. As for TLSoHHB... it never entered my mind.

  2. I don't know about you, Buck (re your off-road moto races) but as an athlete/coach I always remembered the details of a tough loss FAR more than I did any championship I won/coached..

    1. PS: THLSoHHB is one of my ALL-TIME faves. Have it on English vinyl..

    2. You're right about remembering losses vs. wins. The losses DO stay with you.


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