I just gained 30 pounds, in one night!

Gloria had Dan, Dan, Junior & I over to her house for a barbeque this evening. Holy crap was it good. I don't think I could ever ask for a better meal. We had fresh summer squash, carrots, broccoli & radishes from the farmer's market with a killer dip, Boca Burgers (okay, I had boca burgers, everyone else had hamburgers & brats), watermelon, cheesy potatoes & strawberry pie for dessert. I don't think I can eat again for another week.

Gloria's backyard is something else, too, she's got a garden that won't quit, a little pond & the nicest grass you'll ever see. We played with her dogs, listened to the band playing in the park down the street & had a fabulous time. Three cheers for Gloria for giving us such a feast & for putting up with us idiots.

Five Favorite Songs of the Day

It Could've Been A Brilliant Career-Belle & Sebastian

he had a stroke at the age of twenty four, it could've been a brilliant career!

Flatness-Uncle Tupelo, No Depression

Gethsemane-Richard Thompson, The Old Kit Bag

be something! be something fine!

License to Kill-Bob Dylan, the David Letterman Show, 1984

he worships at an altar of a stagnant pool...

This is one of Bob Dylan's greatest performances of the '80's. He should've stuck with this band throughout the entire decade, although not very technically proficient, they got to the heart of this music with no frills, & Bob's vocals match there playing all the way.

all he believes are his eyes, & his eyes they just tell him lies!

You Got Me-The Roots, Featuring Erykah Badu, Things Fall Apart

Happy Wednesday, friends, I hope your summer is filled with green lawns & smells of brats on the roast (it's in the spirit of the ones we miss the most!).

You enjoyced it? I like that. I could post a song from Bob Dylan in London from 2006 to listen to in London '06 but they aren't anything special.
