Thursday, November 19, 2009 was my first post.
Well, how about that? I have reached my one-year anniversary of blogging!
And now, my friends, it is time to bid you all adieu...I have reached the
end of my journey.
I thank you all for reading my drivel, and for allowing me to re-discover
the writing I used to do. I will continue to read all of your posts. But for
me, I think I have about run out of things to say...
I won't say I am gone FOREVER, if I think of something that I think needs
to be said, then I will post it...think of this as just a little break.
I leave you with a final song...
A nostalgic memory of my frequent co-collaborator.
Now he lives too far from me, I only see him every
year or two. Too bad.
So this song is all just me playing.
The references to 'Sally' are Ray's guitar
(yes, he named it).
Sheila is a cat that I had at the time.
She died when she was around 17 years old.
I include the standard disclaimer:
Not professionally recorded, and it might sound better if
you listened with headphones.
The link and the lyrics appear below:
C. Where the hell is Raymond?
I surely miss him now
Where the hell is Raymond?
1. Ray and I, we used to write
While waiting to succeed
Raymond strumming Sally
While we both wished for our needs
Hunger in our bellies
And lust deep in our bones
2. Playing songs for all to hear
Creative waste of time
Creditors are hounding us
'Till Amway comes on line
And Ray and I are mellow
With our music and our pot
3. Then the day must come
When shit together we must get
Adolescent playtime surely
Has it's place to set
So Raymond, he took Sally
And I took Sheila, too
Peace be with you.
