Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack

Rodney Crowell...

Tired ol' story, sad but true
We mama's boys have got it in for you
Our faults are many, our virtues nil
We never loved you and we never will
Ah, come on now girl, it's time we both come clean
This mean old world runs on sex and gasoline
The lyrics to this tune made me laugh, but I suppose they WOULD.  I like the way Rodney skewers a number o' subjects here and his words ring TRUE, in that tongue-in-cheek sorta way.  The tune itself is pretty bouncy and catchy, as well.  That doesn't hurt.

In other news...  We went out on a beer run to our Local Likker Locker (no, there's no broadening to be had here... it was all new favorites, like 90 Shilling Ale and Snapshot) but the first thing we did before making the beer run was to affix the playoff flag to The Tart, like this:

That's last year's pic but ya get the ideer, right?  Yes, we're a day early since the Beloved Wings don't play until tomorrow evening.  OTOH, we're right on time coz one can't ever be TOO early, yanno?



  1. When I saw this, I thought of you:

    The vroom may be missing in this unit, but it's stylin for sure...

    1. I wouldn't mind a CTS-V coupe, which is the same body, more or less. But I will NEVER own a battery-powered car. NEVER. So sayeth the geezer. ;-)

  2. For the first time since I've known you, we're on opposite ends of the rooting spectrum. Sorry about that, but... GO BRUINS!

    1. Yeah, we are. But that's no big deal, right?

  3. I thought the topic was Rodney Crowell.
    That's what I get for thinkin'.
    He does have a way of puttin' words together that get ya thinkin' in another direction.

    1. Ol' Rodney DOES have a way with words. I like him, a lot.

    1. Thanks for noticing, Moogie.


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