Windy Weather

Sorry to blind you with colour but it is what I need after two days of being out driving in a white landscape. I need to see colour. I planned on painting today but had only a half hour of good light after I got home

I've been out since this morning running errands and visiting friends and let me tell you it is beautiful/nasty out there. It is beautiful like yesterday with bright blue skies and wonderful sun but the wind is really strong and the roads are drifting in like crazy. It is plain old not fun to be driving out there today.

I had the fender bent out today , a temporary measure before a new one replaces it. When I had a passenger yesterday there was some scraping and of course, I couldn't open the door. It's workable for the moment.

I think Blogger is forgetting bloggers over forty with their new font in their dashboard for making posts and the new comment pop-up page. I can't read the font in the comment pane and it's more difficult with the dashboard. The dashboard change has been in effect for a week or two but the comment change is new today or yesterday. Maybe someone will write a letter.

I cheated yesterday with the music but ran out of time. I'm busy today too but am going quickly. If there are spelling and grammar mistakes forgive me. There will be music. It is not going to match the post but it's a song that has meaning to me. My boyfriend at the time and my room mate practiced singing this song together in '72 or '73 as a birthday present for me. They had the proper dance steps of the times all worked out and did a fabulous job. It is the first song I ever downloaded on the internet. Me and Mrs. Jones by Billy Paul; do you remember it? Since I'm in the soul mood I have something a bit newer as well. It's an old song from the 80's actually, made famous by Bette Midler, but this version by Freddie Jackson is soulful, reminding me of those Billy Paul days. Here's Wind Beneath My Wings. I loved soul music so much I thought I'd never listen to anything else ever again.

Darn. I was hoping this "Wind Beneath My Wings" was going to be the version I'd heard and loved before Midler came along aned schmalzed it up. I remember it as a nice song that went nowhere, and tehn Bette Midler got ahold of it and made millions. It sounded like Al Green or somebdoy like that but I never knew who it was. Do you know the one I'm talking about?

Don't freeze!

Thank you for that blast of color. It is exactly what I needed today!

I don't know, Ralph. I remember Midler's version first

Kat, My eyes are almost snow-blind today so, I needed colour too.
