Dreaming on the Starlight Train

Sunset glow

Listening to the newly revamped "In the Arms of Love" by Ottmar Liebert. Ahhhh, seeing this photo and listening to his music carries me away. In fact it'd be nice if the train carried me a little further to the south(left)...more specifically on the other side of Willowbend, then again I wouldn't mind if it carried me to the north (right) and stop in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Friday Funnies!

A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City , where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.

She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

"That's nice," she thinks, "but I want more."

So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store!


To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.

The first floor has wives that love sex.

The second floor has wives that love sex and have money and like beer.

The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited!!!

Dan's Song

I was a big fan of the late Dan Fogelberg.
Thankfully, his music lives on.
I downloaded "Sometimes a Song" last night.
"100% of proceeds from all digital sales will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation".
Very much looking forward to a CD release later this year.
Thank you to Jean Fogelberg for sharing such a personal song.
I had tears the first time I heard the song and
I've been listening to the song repeatedly
as Dan's voice is splendid.

5000 miles....

Music: Five Thousand Miles, Jon Gagan

Mood: ehh, I've had better!

I'd give anything to be 5000 miles out in the middle of nowhere to see such a sunset in all its glory. Still, I'm thankful for what little view I had from my patio. Another Saturday night and I'm off to do my usual...dinner and laundry at my friends. I live such an exciting life these days but such is life. Working two jobs does take a toll on leisure and freedom. Let's hope working the extra job will pay off for me in a matter of weeks. I hope to have some good news by month's end. If not, then it was not meant to be. I'll keep you posted.
