Time

Time.

Man!!! Where does it go???

Seems like only yesterday I was playing my drums, shaking my long hair and having a great time playing in rock band after rock band.

Now, here I sit ("broken-hearted. Paid a dime and only farted," - an old pay-toilet joke.) 62 years old, feeling it in my bones and my brain, but not yet in my body (except for having to wear the incontinence "Speedos" of course!).

I ask myself sometimes, "What are you still doing here, dumb ass? She doesn't look a day over 50, and you're just taking up space! Get the hell off the planet!"

But then she does or says some little thing that makes me remember why I fell in love with her in the first place, and I gain strength from that to make it through one more day.

"Madondra". (She hates when I call her that, but I do it because I like the way her eyes narrow and blaze as I say it, heh-heh!)

Dondra: A woman for the ages. A woman for all seasons. And a friend to all she meets.

She's who keeps me on "the planet!"

The songs I chose really are only slightly related to the subject of the blog, and one of them is a "re-run", but I hope you enjoy them anyway.

Lord, I hate sequential segues (coming out of one subject and going into another of the same), but "time" is running out for many of the four-footed ones. They sit in shelters nationwide, not knowing what they've done to wind up this way: in a cage and/or a run, but surely missing the warm "human touch" some of them may have enjoyed for a short time.

If you have a place in your heart and home, please adopt one or more of them, and get them the hell out of the hell they are in now. Don't cause them to be thrown off the planet yet. The "Rainbow Bridge" can wait.

Tell y'all what: I'll play you a HAPPY song that you and your new friend can dance to once you get them home, okay? This will be y'all's theme song, because your love will be "happening" to them!

The lyrics if you'r singing along:

Hey life, look at me
I can see the reality
'Cause when you shook me, took me, outta my world
I woke up
Suddenly I just woke up to the happening
When you find that you left the future behind
'Cause when you find a tender love
You don't need to take care of
Then you better beware of the happening
One day you're up
When you turn around
You find your world is tumbling down
It happened to me and it can happen to you
I was sure, I felt secure
Until love took a detour, yeah!
Riding high on the top of the world it happened
Suddenly it just happened
I saw my dreams torn apart
When love walked away from my heart
And when you lose a precious love you need to guide you
Something happens inside you, the happening
Now I see life for what it is
It's not a dream
It's not a bliss
It happened to me and it can happen to you
Ooh, and then it happened
Ooh, and then it happened
Ooh, and then it happened
Is it real?
Is it fake?
Is this game of life a mistake?
'Cause when I lost the love
I thought was mine for certain
Suddenly it starts hurting
I saw the light too late
When that fickle finger of fate
Yeah! It came and broke my pretty balloon
I woke up
Suddenly I just woke up
So sure, I felt secure
Until love took a detour

'Cause when you got a tender love
You don't take care of
Then you better beware of

The happening
