Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack

Pete Townshend with an acoustic version o' "Won't Get Fooled Again:"

I'm pretty sure I like Townshend's acoustic version better than the full-tilt, screaming Daltrey version one finds on "Who's Next."  But BOTH are excellent, classics even.

Speakin' about not gettin' fooled again... We're just in from a whiskey re-supply run out to Cannon Airplane Patch, about which we have both good and bad news.  First, the good news:  the Class VI store restocked with that 18-year Glenlivet that I find so attractive.  The bad news: the price went up.  We didn't find this out until we got to the register and the lady rang us up.  The price on the shelf is labeled as bein' the same as the 15-year old edition but in reality it's 16 Yankee Dollars more dear.  We went ahead and bought the stuff anyway, not wanting to (a) hold up the line while we (b) returned the pricey bottle to the shelf in favor o' the more reasonable version, and (c) not wanting to appear to be a piker.  That said, this will prolly be our last bottle o' the really good stuff for a while.

And we won't get fooled again.


  1. OK, tried the 18 this weekend, Muy Bueno! Followed it up with the 12 year old Glenlivet. Thanks Loads, Buck. Now I've got the taste for the expensive stuff!

    1. It's hard to get back to the farm after you've seen Gay Paree, innit? ;-)


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