Music and Lyrics

I do not love gardening, and gardening does not love me. If John Denver were still alive I would call him up and say, “Dude, time for you to come up with one new song and go back on tour and you’re welcome because I have a new verse to add to 'Sunshine On Your Shoulders'.” And he would say, “No WAY!” And I would say, “WAY!” and then sing the following: Goat heaaaaaads in my fingerrrrrrrrrs hurt so badlyyyyyyy.

He would go on tour and pay me royalties and I would be rich. Too bad he’s dead, ‘cuz I don’t have a backup plan.

rachey, rachey, rachey. you LIVED here before! This is so disappointing. Goat heads are those awful things in your yard that flatten bike tires. And lacerate flesh.

Lol, sorry, I guess we didn't do a lot of gardening at our house. But it certainly sounds painful! Thank you for educating me, that makes a lot more sense now.

Also, you can imagine where my mind was going with "goat heads in my fingers", it seemed a little morbid for you.

All green things die in my hands. I just want to grow successful tomato plants. Alas, death awaits them.

Okay, I was about a month and a half behind on reading your blog. Reading your adventures in life has lifted my spirits today, and boy did I need it. Plus, it gave me so much ammunition for Know-It-All-Head. We sure miss her in Parkview, but I still see and mess with her monthly. I missed where you are planning to move.

Wait, I wanted to hear the rest of the Goat Head song!

I think John would have been proud.

And WHERE are you moving!!??

We don't even have a single tree on our 1/2 acre lot. But we can fill up to 15 big yard bags full of leaves in the fall thanks to our neighbor who has, I don't know, a bazillion trees.

Can you take a picture of the said Goat Heads.

Loved your mom's comments.
