#SLS ~ 2/7/21 Part Two

I usually search to find a song when something doesn’t pop right into my mind. After I posted THIS, I realized I could’ve kept to a pattern. Last week I chose the Pearl Jam song – “Even Flow” and I could’ve used the Pearl Jam song “Better Man” with color/red in it this week. I’ve read through all posts to this point 11:46 CST and haven’t see it, so I’m doing a twofer. More about “Better Man” at the wiki. Hope you enjoy!

Waitin’, watchin’ the clock
It’s four o’clock, it’s got to stop
Tell him, take no more
She practices her speech
As he opens the door, she rolls over
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

She lies and says she’s in love with him
Can’t find a better man
She dreams in color, she dreams in red
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
OhTalking to herself
There’s no one else who needs to know
She tells herself
Memories back when she was bold and strong
And waiting for the world to come along
Swears she knew him, now she swears he’s gone

She lies and says she’s in love with him
Can’t find a better man
She dreams in color, she dreams in red
Can’t find a better man
She lies and says she still loves him
Can’t find a better man
She dreams in color, she dreams in red
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better manShe loved him, yeah
She don’t want to leave this way
She feeds him, yeah
That’s why she’ll be back again

Can’t find a better man (can’t find a better man)
Can’t find a better man (can’t find a better man)
Can’t find a better man (can’t find a better man)
Can’t find a better man

#SLS ~ 2/7/21

Jim prompts us with colors. I’m grabbing “Touch of Grey” Jerry Garcia composer and Robert Hunter lyrics. I’m even breaking my rule by posting a song over 4 minutes long. But this song lifts my mood, too good not to share. More at the wiki.

“Touch Of Grey”

It must be getting early
Clocks are running late
Paint by numbers morning sky
Looks so phony

Dawn is breaking everywhere
Light a candle, curse the glare
Draw the curtains, I don’t care
‘Cause it’s alright

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

I see you got your list out
Say your piece and get out
Yes I got the gist of it
But it’s alright

Sorry that you feel that way
The only thing there is to say
Every silver lining’s got a
Touch of grey

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

It’s a lesson to me
The Ables and the Bakers and the C’s
The ABC’s
We all must face
And try to keep a little grace

It’s a lesson to me
The Deltas and the East and the Freeze
The ABC’s
We all think of
And try to keep a little love

I know the rent is in arrears
The dog has not been fed in years
It’s even worse than it appears
But it’s alright

Cows are giving kerosene
The kid can’t read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene
But it’s alright

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

The shoe is on the hand it fits
There’s really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and spit
‘Cause it’s alright

Oh well a touch of grey
Kind of suits you anyway
That was all I had to say
It’s alright

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

We will get by
We will get by
We will get by
We will survive

We will get by
We will get by
We will get by
We will survive

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 2/7/21

Boy howdy!! This week was insane. Started with the phone call Sunday that got us into the COVID vaccine queue. After all those attempts to finally get in then to get scheduled for the very next day was wild. I do feel a tad guilty for getting in when so many are waiting. Not guilty enough to turn down the shot but still.

Anywho, this is not about that. This post is my week in review. Let’s get goin shall we?

#SLS ~ 1/31/21 – Even Flow was my choice. We did yard work and that was very relaxing.  Even flow … get it??? Haha.

#JusJoJan “Candy” ~ 1/31/21 Our capstone for #JusJoJan which I almost missed.  We are fin until 2022.

Haiku: Bare & Full ~ 2/1/21 Mamaw’s heavenly birthday.  Shot #1 day.  Worked around all the hurry up and wait.  Needed to digest before writing about our experience.  

Share Your World ~ 2/2/21 Melanie always provides such interesting questions.  I can never get there on time.  I’m going try though.  “God willing and the creek don’t rise.”

#1linerWeds. 2/3/21 A stickman meme.  Work was brutal thus delaying my entry.  I worked around some appointments and made up my time.

With a day off and all my idle time I put up three posts:  Thoughtful Thursday ~ 2/4/21#WDIIA ~ 2/4/21Thursday Thoughts ~ 2/4/21

Friday Book Club: J-Dub’s Review of “Bloodline” by Jess Lourey ~ 2/5/21 I am reading again.  Yay! me 🙂

#SoCS ~ 2/6/21 Sheldon Cooper “Fun with Flags”  wonder why no one wrote about that or if they did and I missed it, my loss.  Celebrated a work anniversary and basically vegged out.  Ah now that’s the stuff.

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.
