Jim gives us Apple/Banana/Cherry/Olive/Orange/Strawberry as prompts. After a slow start, I came up with more songs than anticipated having a very hard time choosing. Decisions, decisions.

Finally I picked “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)” sung by by Harry Belafonte. Writer(s): Attaway William A, Burgie Irving. There may be duplicates as this song is well known but I am going for it anyways. Plus I could not resist adding the Beetlejuice clip at the end. A movie that I did not understand at first and sort of even disliked before becoming a cult classic from which I can quote many lines. The mixing of music and film, oh the joy!!

Day-o, day-o
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Me say day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Work all night on a drink of rum
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Stack banana till de morning come
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Lift six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

A beautiful bunch o’ ripe banana
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Hide the deadly black tarantula
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Lift six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Day-o, day-o
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Me say day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Sunday Reflections ~ 12/13/20

Howdy folks.  Time once again to reflect upon the prior week.  To say it was hellacious is an understatement.  I’m doing what I always do, minimizing my feelings and looking for silver linings.  Telling myself what my daddy taught me with a constant reassurance “No harm done, it could be worse”.  While that is very true and often brought me peace, that sentiment masks and minimizes my feelings.  Which right now are laser focused on Lulu and her recovery.   

There is a fine line between airing your dirty laundry across the Internet and talking about issues to keep the secrets from building up and exploding one day.  The world does not need to know the gory details.  There is enough of that out there now.  Instead we suffer in silence, alone but not truly alone because we always have each other.  Come what may, come hell or high water, for better or worse with all the ugly warts and co-dependencies.  Oh the mistakes I’ve made.  We’ve made.  But right now the blame game has to be set aside for true recovery to begin.  We’ve been through worse and we’ll get through this …  

And if you made it through the quagmire to read this far, here is the roll call.  Short and sweet. Ya see, there were a few silver linings or two in the mix.
