Yeah, my daughter should have just stayed with her depressed, drunken, violent husband instead of kicking him to the curb and ending up on food stamps for her 3 kids. She's just such a lazy dependent.
Every NCO club in Vietnam had a touring Filipino band covering CCR. Seems I remember Proud Mary the most. One of my favorite memories in the vein of "Drive On" was the day we had one of those bands at a company party, and they kept playing - strippers and all - when we took a couple of rockets and we GI's all put our helmets on. Don't think anybody went to the bunkers, though. Entertainment was hard to come by.
The other day I was playing some 60's and early 70's songs for my 31 year old daughter, just to make sure her education was complete. When I got to Fortunate Son and started "singing" It Ain't Me, she said she always thought it was just a happy song about "Jeremy! Jeremy!"
Yeah, my wife gave our daughters unisex toys, I tried assembly or electronics toys. No go. Both daughters went for the pink ponies and Princesses of Power. Once grown up, one is the quintessential mother-of-3-kids-a-dog-and-a-cat and the other one is VP of an international commercial insurance company.
Just another way of getting people into Science.
"Must you, Bronco Billy?" is my wife's favorite line from the movies.
I used to work with a Scot who could have stepped out of the Wayback machine. He would have fit in better as a 15th century border reiver than as a tech worker. I loved seeing the steam come out of his ears when I'd quote Johnson at him "Much may be made of a Scotsman if he be caught young".
We live on Dewey Ave, so of course our Wi-Fi network is named in honor of the old Boston firm Dewey, Cheatham and Howe
Well, "Boise Brain" is a pretty original way of calling Dok a 'taterhead.
