Nothin' like some obvious clues to point you in the right direction. Yes, the song was "Rikki, Don't Lose That Number", by Steely Dan. We got mail from all over on this one. Also had two Ricky's write in. (note the spelling) Are you ready for a real easy one?
"...And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed, nothing seems to fit..." Hint: It's about the weather. We've done this one before, but it fits.
The August Chronicles: We tune in, to find our talented 'everyman' in the role of ultra-cool piano player/man of the world. It was time for another Sunday recital, but this time, he had something special. The song was Delores and it had evolved into a masterpiece. Jeff has been working with him on playing with feeling and he's responded with an understanding beyond his years. He played it for us when we were visiting and we were touched. Anyway, after his performance on Sunday, several parents came up to the family and expressed how much they 'felt' his playing. If you go to the Flickr site, I've posted some pics of Mr. August, taken before the 'show'. He's just too much.
This morning we had fog. (I really don't have any control over the weather) There's a first, for us. It was strange to see, but burned off early and we had a nice day. Boot is really sick, we think it's the flu. We got our flu shots here, so we're hoping we're safe. I've got some mild symptoms, and it's really a drag. Funny taste in the mouth, fingers starting to ache, but my denial is strong and I'm not sick. Just symptomatic. (555) But seriously folks, it's not fun.
Speaking of fun (notice how I'm working backwards?) This morning we got our exercise bike. It's very cool, and fits in the bedroom perfectly. It has battery-operated read-outs for all sorts of functions. Let the games begin. Speaking of games, I posted some pics of a Sports Day we spotted last week, over at the high school by the Sports Complex. The kids were having big fun, racing in all sorts of configurations.
I'm going to rest my fingers while you have a Wacky Wednesday.
