No Bar Too Far

Double Cat Bone Zune Moment this morning…….

You Can’t Always Get What You Want  by the Rolling Stones from the Let It Bleed cd ca. 1969
For What Its’  Worth  by Buffalo Springfield from their debut cd somewhere around late ’67 or early 1968

 

Yep, that is Stephen Stills in the hat before he really was Stephen-Stills-as-we-know-him.  Even a shot of Neil Young later in the video before they even would let him sing a note.  If you can’t finish this opening line “There’s something happening here…”  you need to youtube it young ‘uns and see what it is I am talking about.

Terlingua Reprise - The Heart of the Desert

Miss K woke me up in the pre-dawn hours getting out of bed. ‘Where are you going?’ ‘To put on some more clothes. It is COLD!’ She was right, no argument there at all. During the night the Old Girl had cooled to an uncomfortable level. Nothing for it but for me to get up and get some heat going. I had not expected it to get so cool overnight but then the Midland weatherman routinely got the forecast down here wrong. His prediction of lows in the 40’s had missed the mark and then some.
