What you won’t do for love

August 29, 2015

Tavis Smiley was interviewing Bobby Caldwell who recorded the hit song What you won’t do for love and asked him what was the genesis of the song. Caldwell said it was the result of being dumped by a young lady. He sold millions of copies of the song and it was played all over the world. A few years later he met the young lady that dumped him. She asked him if she shouldn’t receive some “royalties” for having been the reason for the song. He politely said BLEEP and that was the end of the story.

The Price of Deer

August 28, 2015

Readers of this blog probably have seen some of my deer photos; we have many in our area. I admit I like to see them but there is a price to pay besides the vegetation they devour. Below is a car I saw on a trip to the library this week. The driver told me he hit the deer on Fee Fee road close to my house and it is a 40 MPH zone. Obviously there is a monetary loss but other thoughts occurred to me. What if the deer had hit the driver’s side and what if I had hit one while I rode a motorcycle for three years in the area; not fun thoughts.

Horatio’s Drive (America’s First Road Trip – year 1903)

 Received the above DVD for my 77th birthday; thank you daughter. For old car enthusiasts it is a “Hoot”. Below I included a link to Wikipedia about the documentary by Ken Burns. In case you want to check it out (literally) the St. Louis Library has copies they loan to residents.
