Dave Van Ronk..
He was a friend of mine..

Nice try.
One of our Seti associates just tried to jailbreak my modem.
I have enough online protection to safeguard against all but the most ardent attempts.
Try again and I can target a counter strike.
I shall let it go for now.
Cuz you are obviously an amateur.

Hello in there................hello.
If you don't know the song, you should.
John Prine, 1st album. It spoke to my soul the first time I heard it 50 years ago, and I knew instinctively that was how our elder population felt. An instinct that is now confirmed as I stare at Birthday #72 .

Prine is another American poet/wordsmith I feel on a par with Dylan and Cohen.

Christmas in Prison is another great lyric 'picture' from the same album.

Geezus.
Just nicked Bandit while cutting a few knots out of her fur.
It wasn't much of a nick, and she never even meowed over it.
A piece of advice.................
Superglue.
Kitty wounds are very scary, because with their loose skin it looks very much worse than it really is.
Put a drop of cyanoacrylate on it and closed it up. No real harm done.
It wasn't that bad, just scared me for a bit. I mean it was just little more than a scratch.
Keep this in mind for kitty surgery.
I used it for mending Squirrel kitty once after a cat fight many years ago.

There is something about certain artists.
This is one.
I got nothing on him.
Dave Van Ronk.........
Hang me, Oh hang me.
I've been all around this world.
Life on my shoulders and a dagger in my hand.

Wouldn't mine the hangin' but the layin' in the grave's so long.

Dear kittyman,

Life always has its ups and downs. Sometimes more downs than ups.

Just tell the "downs" to Go Screw Yourself and get on with life.

I am trying to do just that.
The thing is............
The downs just never let up.

The "downs" will always be with us.

Just put them to the side and find something that interests you and do it!

I am trying to.
Just, even with my meds, depressive disease always tries to take the upper hand.
And most times it loses the battle, and some times I lose the battle.
Just a bad day of it on my part.

I can get back to where I need to be. I just have to have a good day.

You should all see this....................
A candid shot of Bob Dylan, his girlfriend, and Dave Van Ronk walking down the street.

You should see it.
At about 48 seconds into the cut.

Now, the point is................
Dave Van Ronk was a better musician than Dylan was.
He played better, and had a better voice.
But, Dylan keyed into the wrath of the youth at that time.
Dave just wanted to play folk songs.
We all know what the media of the time wanted to take advantage of.
The rage against the VietNam war.
And Dave was just singing folk songs.

Same goes for one of my favorite groups, PPM.
They were just a simple folk group until their songs stared to hit home.
'Puff' was their theme song.
But, have you ever listened to their entire catalog?
'If I had a Hammer' was an anti war song.
And the rest is lost on most of you.

I never liked Dylan's style.

Dylan had no 'style'.
Dylan was Dylan and needed nothing else.

Almost every day I hit my heels together and think I am gonna somehow wake up in the land of OZ.
And think .......
There's no place like home.
There's no place like home.
There's no place like home.

Except I am already home.

When you are a manic depressive, home is a fleeting target.
It moves from day to day and minute to minute.
My meds do a lot to moderate things, but the underlying problem remains.
And I might never see home again.

Those of you who are clear of thought and mind might not quite understand this.
But it is really hard when you cannot understand your inner voice when it tries to talk to yourself,
I have so many thoughts racing around in my mind and I cannot any longer deal with all of them.
They are so many that I cannot sort them all.
I shall endeavor to persevere.

This link is working....................
The Wizard of Oz.
Good resolution.
Including the full beginning which is often left out.
The correlation between the farm hands and Dorothy's dream sequence is sometimes missed.
And a few scenes I have forgotten over the years.
The moment when it goes from sepia tones to full color is still magical to me.

Just a grand version of the hit song that I ran across.
[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLnZ1NQm2uk/url]
I might have pooched the link.
But it will be figured out by my friends or by myself.
