Just Walk Away Renee
Wednesday, September 11, 2013      9 comments

I walked the pups this morning about 3 miles. The State Fair opened today, so, this afternoon, I walked the 2.3 miles to the fair, all around the exhibits, and back home. I hit 27000 steps. My FitBit is challenging me to hit 30k - really? (I ... Read more
Don't Let the Rain Come Down

Took the pups to the vet this morning - nice walk, 2 miles from the house. Overcast day, high 60's, so perfect for walking. Hmm, a little misting ... Now sprinkling ... Hey, it's raining and we're almost there! A bit damp, but OK. Shalako needed... Read more

We took a shorter walk today - thought the pups and I needed a semi-rest - 4.2 miles in 97 minutes. Heard some Roberta Flack on the radio when I was out and about today. This is one of my favorites. Roberta Flack, 1973 Jesse, come ... Read more
Walking on Sunshine

Took the pups for 5.3 miles today. Spartacus, the little weasel, dragged butt a few times (I'm tired, I'm old, I can't walk any further) so he ended up getting carried about 15 minutes out of the 2 hours. Except for trying to turn off the trail ... Read more
You Can't Rollerskate in a Buffalo Herd
Saturday, September 07, 2013      8 comments

This was supposed to be Roger Miller's favorite song that he wrote & recorded. Another lovely bit of nonsense and humor in a country twang! You can't rollerskate in a buffalo herd You can't rollerskate in a buffalo herd You can't rol... Read more

Another hit by Roger Miller from 1966 - a novelty song he later claimed he wrote in 4 minutes in his hotel room. The best parts for me was him going "beep beep beep bedopa beep beep beep" Well here I sit high gettin' ideas Ain't nothin'... Read more

Little Green Apples

I forgot to say yesterday's song was by Bobby Russell. He also wrote Little Green Apples, Honey, and The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia, as well as others. Roger Miller made one of the first hits for this one in 1968. And I wake up i... Read more
Saturday Morning Confusion

I heard this today on an oldies radio show - it was Bobby Box's "silly song of the day". Here they come, warming up I hear the pitter patter of little People on the living room rug ... Read more
One's on the Way

I'd actually never heard this song, but nearly every time I did a search for "working songs", this popped up in the list. Loretta Lynn recorded this one in 1971, about a job that you can't take a day off from. They say to have her hair done... Read more

Classic for Labor Day. Written by David Allen Coe, and first recorded by Johnny Paycheck in 1977. Doesn't really reflect my mood today - we're having a fairly mellow night (so far!) Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no... Read more

Samurai, my Papillion, has a toy that he constantly leaves in the kitchen. Every time I step on it, it starts singing "baby, baby, do a little dance ..." K. C. and the Sunshine Band, 1975 Baby, babe, let's get together Honey, honey,... Read more

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. ... Read more
