Take the waaaaay back machine to 1986! Remember this?
was really a comeback album with a new sound for Mr. Clapton. I
listened to it for the first time in years and am surprised at how it
really holds up after all of this time. For those of you who do not
remember, "It's in the way that you use it" was the signature tune was
used in the film The Color of Money with Paul Newman and Tom Cruise.
Take a look at the YouTube video HERE if you have some time...and want to laugh at Tom Cruise. A couple of things -
This time of year you begin to see Back to School ads everywhere. I
HATE BACK TO SCHOOL ADS. I know I have been out of school for some time
now but seeing those ads make me think back to when I was a kid
dreading to go back to school. It's not that I didn't like school - I
just didn't like how the ads made you feel. Letdown. Anxious. Sad. And
another thing - I HATE #2 pencils. They remind me of standardized
tests, the ACT, the SAT. Maybe I should go see someone about this...
Who doesn't love some good surfing?
I DO LOVE really at any time of year is watching surfing. As the
official end of summer is approaching, take a moment to watch some of
the world's best surfing HERE.
And now for a new picture above- Can you
guess where it is by looking "through the keyhole"? "This high
land sports some deep, freshwater with plenty of peat so you can't
see very far into the water. Don't look too long for Nessie as she

issue. Good luck and have fun.

50 Years Married (FUNNY)
being married for 50 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day
and said, "Fifty years ago we had a cheap house, a junk car, slept on a
sofa-bed and watched a 10-inch black and white TV. But hey I got to
sleep every night with a hot 23-year-old girl.
Now ... I have a
$750,000 home, a $45,000 car, a nice big bed and a large screen TV, but
I'm sleeping with a 73-year-old woman. So I said to my wife "it seems
to me that you're not holding up your side of things."
is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot
23-year-old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be
living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and
watching a 10-inch black and white TV.
