Short People
Wednesday, July 22, 2015      11 comments

Randy Newman had a big hit with this one in 1977. He said this song did NOT reflect his personal viewpoint, but the verse "short people are just the same as you and I" does. ... Read more
High Hopes

Tripped over an uneven sidewalk yesterday while walking the pups and fell into some bushes. Got a little graze on my side. Worse thing? Landed on a bed of ants. Did you know they can bite through your clothes? Itchy butt bites!!! I've been gett... Read more
Games People Play
Saturday, July 18, 2015      7 comments

Joe South, singer-song writer, 1968. He wrote yesterday's song, "Rose Garden", also. For some reason, I always thought Randy Newman wrote this song (he wrote "Short People", songs for "A Bug's Life" and others) ... Read more

Wow, yesterday was kinda a wasted day. Walked the pups 4.8 miles. Got home & my yard guy, Rob, showed up to finish repairing my gate post. After he left, I took a hot bath, 50 mg of Benadryl and a melatonin tab, preparing to sleep for the after... Read more

I'm Still a Guy
Saturday, July 11, 2015      8 comments

Woof, a rough couple of nights. Not overwhelming, but steadily busy, frequent ambulances, short staffed, and the admitting beds limited. One guy actually came in by ambulance with "knee pain". He was working on reconstruction at his house, tripp... Read more
Mama Said
Thursday, July 09, 2015      9 comments

I knew I should have done this blog before I slept this morning - busy at work & just getting time to post it at 2300 (11 p). The Shirelles, 1961. If you're like me, you sang "Mama said there'd be days like this" instead of "there'll be days li... Read more
Shop Around

Smokey Robinson wrote this one for the Miracles in 1960. It's been covered many times. Usually the female singers flip it around to having the daughter shop around. ... Read more

I walked the pups nearly 6 miles this morning (got a little carried away), and since then, have been waiting for UPS to show up and pick up a package. They were supposed to be here between 1 & 5 pm. It's almost 7:30 now. Grumble, grumble. Anyway... Read more
Unplanned rest day
Monday, July 06, 2015      9 comments

Got home this morning, nearly fell asleep before I walked the pups. I did manage to get them out for 45 minutes before it got too hot and I got too tired. Just over 8000 steps - that's enough. ... Read more
