Throwback Thursday -- Beep! Beep!

TBTI had to update my iTunes programs the other day, and while I was waiting for the downloads and installs to complete, I happened to notice there was a new CD with music by Billy Ocean. And among those songs was the one I always think about when someone mentions his name.

"Get Out of My Dreams, Get Into My Car"

And cue the "way back" music. I started laughing and remembered the song he released in 1988 which I thought was one of the most clever pop songs I had heard. Even after almost 30 years it still is a toe-tapper - and just plain fun. Check out the fashions of the day!!

 


healthy words

While stumbling around the internet, I found this infographic on the Writer's Digest website. Interesting stuff. I have to say that taking the time to write is pleasurable for me.

(Mullins' original version of the song is also on You Tube.)

I believe what I believe

and not the invention of any man.


ignoring signs

Remember the battle of Carlton Drive?

It continues.  Several weeks ago one of Carter Lumber's delivery trucks ignored the posted signs of "No Parking". I tried letting the truck driver know, but he ignored my shouts and horn toots to try and rouse him from his truck's cabin. I tried calling the local police, but the officer informed me that unless they were blocking traffic or parked on my own land, there really was nothing they could do.
