The Muppets — Stars and Stripes Forever, from Muppets Studio.
What’s on your mind?
Looks like the pups have abandoned you!
hey thatguy — wihaddup wichyou? token and i are hanging out at home, watching the fireworks on the teevee machine
its a holiday. plus fireworks! and bbg! hell, i would abandon me *laughing*
Oh so late, but hey! Happy Fourth and Summer is official. It is still hard for me to celebrate summer holidays without sand, sea, and a bushel of steamed blueclaw crabs from the Atlantic. OTOH, it means I don’t have to wear a swimsuit!
Last night at the Club Fox jam in Redwood City, Vince let me use my own rig and I did a couple tunes that were a little different, one from the new Delbert and Glen record. Were you aware of that? The D&G record?
hey ce — how’s cleveland tonight? i don’t own a bathingsuit and haven’t in years. lard love a duck there is no way in hell i would put one on
no i hadn’t heard about it…. details dood
Blind, Crippled and Crazy
sweet.. thanks dood
I actually bought two new ones when Marsha and I went to Hawai’i (hey CT!) but it rained everyday we were there. So, they are in my drawer. Who knows, maybe California? Or Florida?
I Ain’t Old
Peace in the Valley
hawaii would be very tempting… i would need a sarong or wrap or whatever they are called tho… and a big hat and sunglasses
Cleveland was great. Fireworks were heard for 2 hours! Goodness, it promised rain, but really, except for a spattering or two, the day way lovely and not too hot.
peace in the valley was not what i was expecting *laughing*
I would need to wear an umbrella!
well that too *laughing* would not want to cause any blindness from the sun bouncing off all my glow in the dark skin
If you were surprised, you don’t know Delbert very well. Mellow little hippie-peaceful songs ain’t his thang. :D
I do love fireworks, and the ones we had were just fine. I have to work tomorrow, and that’s not very fine, but it also means that Friday is here, so hey!
my first thought was to that other song from my childhood — not delbert
yuck — tomorrow should be a day off ce
Yes, that. But since I have a book talk in three weeks, I’ll just read.
By the way, did ya like the song?
tis good that you will be able to just read. and i figure you should have a decent commute in too — lotsa folks took tomorrow off for an extended weekend
We are watching “Back to the Future.” So funny!
Hi Suz and crew, I fell asleep and woke up. Love the Muppets, good one!
It has been mighty quiet around these parts tonight, no guns or loudness, must be the drought. Does not explain no gunshoths, but I don’t miss it.
Except for my outing to the 4th Amendment action, it was a very quiet day.
hey bg — so glad ya liked it :) the gunshots are the forking worst! did any of that big hailstorm happen around you?
Didja see the photos of it? A ways away from ABQ, but quite the freak storm! 2 feet of hail!!
it made my local news today…. whoa it sure looked like a winter wonderland
I quit my teevee machine, so I found out about it on teh FB.
i only watch local news now – happily gave up all the cable news other than the weather channel during weather events.
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! My eldest is on Isle and headed down here shortly…! Just wanted to pop in and spread the Aloha…! ;-)
Hi, everyone one. Happy Fourth to those of you still celebrating. (In Boston, where I am, we’re well into celebrating July 5, but our official celebration of the 4th doesn’t end until July 7).
Don’t know how I missed that this thread had started. I thought LLN was taking the night off!
Thanks for spreading the aloha. (Me, I’m spreading the “wicked awesome.”)
aloha tut — how has your day been?
hey nix — how ya doing tonight?
pass some of that wicked awesome my way *laughing*
“I get all the news I need on the weather report.”
Debilitatingly hot and humid. In Boston, that follows immediately after 40′s, windy and rainy. We seem to have permanently misplaced Spring, except for the odd balmy day (which may come in December as likely as in May).
Gotta love Boston weather.
i heard this song today and that duo has been in my mental soundtrack
We were grilling steaks, spuds, and corn on the grill down at the pool today, all is well in Punalu’u…! Btw, nix, the Better Half and I were sporting our matching Cardiac Sox shirts…! ;-)
yuck! our hot and humid has finally broke and we are back down to normal temps in the mid 70′s during the day. hot and humid is fucking miserable
Gladly! Wish I could.
Boston does have a pretty awesome celebration of the Fourth. We call it Harborfest, which is pronounced by our Mayor as “hahbahfest”.
How did you get to be a Sox fan from Hawaii?
I used to be a Yankee fan, but had to give it up. My son cries when they beat the Sox. Or any team.
i used to always watch boston pops on the teevee on the 4th. was disappointed to discover that it wasn’t televised this year.
In the 90s here today, but feels (officially) like over 100 because of the humidity. Won’t break till after the weekend, supposedly.
*shrudder* do ya have a/c?
It was televised locally, as always, but I did not watch.
I am not as much of a fan of that broadcast as I used to be.
Not sure why your station did not carry it?
Yes, but believe it or not, I do not like A/C anymore. I am like Woody Harrelson, who prefers “ambient temperature.” Of course, for most of the year, that is a lot easier in L.A. than in Boston. Unless you’re in “the valley,” where I am told heat is killer.
its been bounced around teh cable channels and i couldn’t find it. searched via the smart search function and only boston thing i found was baseball games
It sounds like a war zone in San Francisco tonight. I am a native and never remember hearing so many cracks and booms so late in the evening. My poor dogs are terrorized. I think it is worse this year than others because there is no fog like there usually is this time in July. It’s terrible and I hate it. I worry about fire too. We used to have what we called safe and sane fireworks that the all the neighbors would come out to send off together. Little stuff. But tonight there are giant sky rockets, barrel bombs, canons and lots of serious gun fire. The sirens have been going all night too. Not my favorite holiday by a long shot….
i prefer natural cooling but when there is none, give me some a/c :) i liked it out on the coast – never needed a/c the 4 years i was there
hey pp– my little guy, token, hasn’t left my side since the booms and other noises started outside. they are finally starting to taper off — fire is always a worry here too :( i lived in the city from 73-77 and in teh bay area from 64-04 when i moved up to oregon. no fog in july — that’s as much a tradition as the giant’s june swoon
welcome to lln
Sorry about that.
Meant to mention, I do have a fairly effective column shaped fan, which is aimed right at me as I type. Of course, it’s more effective at 2 am than at 2 pm, but it helps.
Did I chase everyone away? I don’t mean to monopolize.
not at all nix — its an iffy night what with the holiday yanno
Hi, PP. Sounds disturbing! Doesn’t your town do fireworks? or do you have freelancers anyway?
I am very near water, but Boston has a huge (and patriotically famous) harbor, so it’s not exactly ocean breezes like parts of the Cape get. It’s more like I am near a lake.
P.S. not complaining, though!
i had great (and not so great) breezes and winds when i was overlooking netarts bay. token didnt like the thunder nor when the wind had the house creaking like a wooden ship at sea…
I am going to go off and give someone else a chance.
Wishing everyone a good rest and beautiful dreams.
happy dreams nix
guess its about time i head out myself. thanks for stopping by and letting me hang out with ya tonight.
g’nite all — happy dreams
