Streaker

video

Just a bit of humor on this Saturday. What's not to love about animals acting like us silly humans. I really like those Clydesdales and got to see and touch them a couple of years ago.

I'm off to spend a very chilly weekend on the boat. And here's my blues rendition of how I'm going to stay warm (with apologies to J. J. Cale and Eric Clapton--sung to the tune Cocaine):

If you wanna be warm you've got to fire it up.
Propane.

If you wanna lie down, and have heat all around.
Propane.

It will fry, it will fry, it will fry;
Propane.

If you got stew and you wanna eat it too,
Propane.

When your sail is done and you wanna warm your buns.
Propane.

It will heat, it will heat, it will heat.
Propane.

When it's cold outside and you wanna get warm.
Propane.

Don't forget this gas, it takes up little mass.
Propane.

It will heat, it will heat, it will heat.
Propane.

Have a good Saturday. Mine is filled with a lot of gratitude for so many things. Here are just a few:
1. Having wet noses of the dogs and lots of kisses to wake me this morning.
2. That the house smells like pine, there are fires going in the fireplaces, and cookies being baked in the kitchen.
3. That my family never threw away anything and most all of it has become valuable to me in many more ways than monetarily.
4. That I'm going to decorate the boat with blue lights and lighted snow flakes after my sail
5. That nothing is terribly wrong in my life at the moment and I'm equipped with the principles of the program in living my life.

  2. I wasn't aware you were a poet. That was great fun this morning. And I don't think Eric will mind. Hope you don't get too cold on the boat.

  3. Beautiful post Syd. Sounds like a wonderful weekend. I have nothing from my childhood so that has become an obsession of mine for my kids. My kids don't get it right now, but someday I hope they feel that its all valuable too.
    Be safe, stay warm and have FUN!

  6. The Clyde's are an impressive animal. The Budweiser Team came through a town I lived in a few years ago...and amazingly impressive!

    Thanks for a pleasant post.
