    Well, the road doesn't go on forever, and the party really does stop.

    I'll share more when the time comes, but for a start, here's a couple of music videos that I like:



    I was a cowboy junkie for a while. Really, I herded goats from horseback for a day, while I was being paid as a carpenter. Found all about saddle sores. Heroin doesn't help in the long run...

    And this, that I shared with Bells:

    Party to the end and live life as though the road never ends.

    Thank goodness my bucket list is short. I got most of the good things done while I was young.

    I'm doing my part to protect the environment, yay.

    There was a downed mylar helium balloon on the back property that looked like it was going to pollute some more, and I decided to deflate it fully...

    Only about 75 yards away so I did it freehand with my bolt gun. The balloon will no longer threaten us or anyone else.

    Our young friend in the neighborhood is going cliff-jumping today, speaking of bucket lists. I won't do that, 'cause I've fallen from two different "rocky prominences" before. Ouch and damn.

    White water canoeing and mountain climbing are things I avoid these days, but I might make an exception for white water sooner than later...

    Anyone live on the big river these days?

    Or Texas? I know gmilam lives nearby.

    Here's something nice from the '40's, redone by the Commander.



    I really like the little fireball with pigtails...

    Why does Beethoven call it The Ode to Joy?

    Watch the people's faces. Learn German before you die.

    He added Schiller's "Ode To Joy" to the composition, IIRC.

    Yes. I looked it up and found that the piece is "Europe's Anthem". That's interesting in and of itself.
