Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

Long Time Comin'

Out where the creek turn shallow and sandy
And the moon comes skimmin' away the stars
When the mesquite comes rushin' over the hilltops
Straight into my arms
Straight into my arms
I'm ridin' hard carryin' a cache of roses
A fresh map that I made
Now I'm gonna get birth naked and bury my old soul
And dance on it's graveAnd dance on it's grave
It's been a long time comin', my dear
It's been a long time comin', but now it's here
And now it's here
Well my daddy he was just a stranger
Lived in a hotel downtown
Well when I was a kid he was just somebody
Somebody I'd see around
Somebody I'd see around
Well now down below and pullin' on my shirt
Yeah I got some kids of my own
Well if I had one wish for you in this god forsaken world, kid
It'd be that your mistakes will be your own
That your sins will be your own
It's been a long time comin', my dear
It's been a long time comin', but now it's here
And now it's here
Out 'neath the arms of Cassiopeia*
Where the sword of Orion sweeps
It's me and you, Rosie, cracklin' like crossed wires
And you breathin' in your sleep
And you breathin' in your sleep
Well there's just a spark of a campfire left burnin'
Two kids in a sleeping bag beside
Reach 'neath your shirt, put my hands across your belly and feel
Another one kickin' inside
And I ain't gonna fuck it up this time
It's been a long time comin', my dear
It's been a long time comin', but now it's here
It's been a long time comin', my dear
It's been a long time comin', but now it's here

For Jer!

No great shakes today folks. A pal of mine was going to check out how I did on the 'chat'--he knows the man. I did hear from my pal e mail wise but no other word so what am I doing? Yep worrying my big butt off. Oh well it keeps me off the streets. S and Issy took a course today that lasted 7 hours. Both of them were bored to bits, poor babies. I'd rather do the junk I had to do. Another person in the course almost fell asleep.

Got a lot of Mr. B's stuff done but will have to work just as crazy hard as I did today to meet tomorrow's deadline. He seemed happy when I advised him of progress...new victim I mean director starts on Monday. Poor bastard. Marc warned him a bit..thank heavens. Not that I'm involved, I think I'm Mr. B's person now. Oh joy....but he's still being nice so who knows what's down the road (other than my leaving, that is)?

Roofers still here, allegedly finishing tomorrow. Yay. It isn't a good idea to do roofing in the extreme heat. Boo. Well condo cops, you wanted it, you got it.

Tee hee hee. This was a day for emails from dear buds I hadn't heard from in a while. Jer, Doris, Geo and Fatma. All on the same day. What are the odds? Has anything like that ever happened to you?

Think I'll go warm up more leftover pizza. Have been living on that for days. It's my version of comfort food....Hope that your world is bright, cool (or cooler than it's been here!), and peaceful. Still hot here after one heck of a storm last night....hugs all, Bridg

    Geez, I can't even eat pizza anymore. I've worked delivering pizza for a year and a half, averaging at least one slice of pizza a day.
