Grocery Store Search for Blue -- MidWeek Blues -- May I help you please?
I like blues, I like trucks, I like Merlot
Looking for blue truck wine gives me the blues
On bottles I find pink trucks and white trucks
Wonder why there aren't any blue trucks though
Barefoot Merlot and Barefoot Chardonnay
Each an excellent California wine
Comes in blue labeled bottle, what the hey
Cheaper by the Dozen is a nice play
My friend's dog, Harley, has a leading role
These small bottles seem to be fun to drink
Comes in blue box, Merlot or Chardonnay
Here's a switch, blue bottle, blue wine
It's not the real thing, no truck to be seen
Worse yet, it's 'Flavored Apple Wine Product'
No way for me, ain't going to be mine

Ours did. There was no way this little girl and long gone mama would be separated for a while. There were tears all around this morning.
Congratulations and applause to all who worked on the release and to the two governments for having civil talks. May peace continue to be furthered in this wild and crazy world.

August came in with a ride! -- Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- Willie Nelson CD
I mentioned before about my collection of these NAPA calendars. I start with the second issue but do have a break of a few years in the late 90's and early 2000's. I may look for missing issues but it probably is not worth the effort.
This is my ride. It is a 1949 Ford F-1 pickup.
I drove one like this to high school for my last two years. The first two years of high school I rode my horse, Mini. I went to a two room country school house. She was a nice horse, but getting old (long in tooth).
For the last two years when I would go into Tekamah, Nebraska, my dad got a 1937 Ford tudor for me to drive. It was black, belonged to a little old lady, and was low mileage.
Dad decided for me that the brakes did not stop this car good enough and that he should buy himself a new Ford pickup which I could drive to high school. Not too many kids drove a new vehicle to high school and we weren't rich at all. In fact the opposite, fairly poor.
I was to have this nice truck again in college after I broke my foot in an ROTC extra curricula Pershing Rifles activity.
One more thing. Someday I may buy a restored truck like this. I have one in mind. It's real nice.
Ruby Red Tuesday part:
In my last posted meme (link) I posted this Q&A:
Question # 17 -- What was the last CD you purchased?
Answer -- Willie Nelson.
Doug, of Walking Ambrose, asked which CD it was and I said that "I will tell the title and why I bought it in another post."
Well, you can read the title on the label.
I bought it because it was one of the few that had his song, "To all the girls I've loved before," and on to "Who travelled in and out my door I'm glad they came ..." (link to lyrics). It was a 1984 song by singers Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson, which first appeared on Iglesias's album 1100 Bel Air Place.
I was going to play this CD in church before I gave my Christian testimony at our Men's Saturday Morning Prayer Breakfast. I did not play it there, however. That was because our organist played the piano while his wife and son sang a whole bunch of songs for us. Of course playing Willie Nelson would not sit right after their lovely singing.
That testimony was the beginning of my first memoirs which is still a work in progress. This one would tell events of my life, including my Christian walk, as influenced by the various girls and ladies who entered into my life. You can see a rough beginning of the WIP on my seldom read or updated blog, "To all the girls I've loved before."

Okay, I am way behind in my blog visits and my posting is scanty. I do go down my blog roll and do a few regular visits. So I should get to you.
If you want me to visit you faster, stop by here and leave a comment. Answering/returning those has priority over the ones on my blog roll.
