Seen on a parking lot in a Ft Myers shopping strip.

I didn't stick around to see if she -it is a she- is young or old, or in shoulders pads and chick-mullet..

 

This went all over the car, except the roof. I don't know why she didn't think helicopters flying overhead wouldn't have wanted to know of her idolization of Rick.

 

A song to take us back to 1984.

Simon and Garfunkel are in their 70th year, this year..They're poets, so I'm certain they are thinking of this song.

h4. Boomer Anthem

Actually, it's been several months now, but I think I could sing along with no problem. It helps that you have lived through these events and that you have a real interest in current events and history too. It is one of my favorites.

Scottman, did you happen to see Roy Clark on an episode of The Odd Couple? He plays a song called "Malaguena" - I have to say, I was blown away by his guitar playing. Amazing.

 

Here is the clip on YouTube (the song starts at 0:29):

I had not seen that clip before. Roy Clark was a great guitar player and that clip certainly emphasizes that! B-) I first heard the tune "Maleguena" performed by another guitar great, Chet Atkins.

I think in this same episode, Roy plays classical music on a violin to Felix Unger's piano playing. I know very little about Roy's work, but I was really impressed by how talented he was here.

 

On another note - "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow" by the Soggy Bottom Boys:

Great song! There are a lot of good songs on the OH BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU soundtrack.

I also liked the companion CD "Down From The Mountain".
