I don't like Mondays...

Well that is not really true, but today is a pretty dull day and the weather ourside is totally mixed up, going from hot and sunny to pouring with cold rain in a matter of a few minutes and then back again. I keep looking out of the window to see if there is a twister on the way! That will probably turn up when I am cycling home, chasing me across the fields...

Oh well, better get back to work as I have nothing else exciting to talk about :-(

Hey, I do have something to talk about - a song I have been learning over the weekend. This is a nostalgia trip too.

Back in the mid 1970s there was a band called The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. They had a hit in the UK with a rocked up version of Tom Jones' song Delilah (My my my Delilah [daddle addle addle addle aaaaaah]) I loved it and have driven my wife up the wall with it - she really dislikes Tom Jones and does not remember the Alex Harvey version of this song. Eventually we came to an agreement - I can keep practicing it so long as I DO NOT START SINGING IT IN A TOM JONES VOICE. Me? Do a thing like that? How could she possibly imagine such a thing.

Hell, it was SO HARD STOPPING MYSELF!

My my my...

I sure hope you don't get caught in any twisters on your way home!!!

I remember that kind of weather from Oklahoma...hot & cold & tornados!!

Be safe!

Sing it the way Flogging Molly does it, and then your wife will not mind your version. I promise!

Ali - MY MY MYYYYYYY - DELILAH
WHY WHY WHYYYYYYYY - DELILAH!

Logzie - No twisters, they are very rare here, though there was one over the sea off where I live a few years ago. Not really Tornado Alley!

Terri - I had not heard of them, but I checked out their website and get the picture! My wife loves The Pogues, so she would probably FM's version!

A co-worker of mine introduced me to this band.
One of my faves is "Give my compliments to the chef." That band was awesome!!!!
