It is oh so quiet here this morning and on 90 degrees at 5:06 this morning. Slowly trying to get a routine going. Wow, Spotify just loaded Bob Seger’s version of Shame on the Moon. I love the lyrics and had never really just read them only sang along as I do to most songs I hear.
Till you’ve been beside a man
You don’t know what he wants
You don’t know if he cries at night
You don’t know of he don’t
When nothing comes easy
Old nightmares are real
Until you’ve been beside a man
You don’t know how he feels
Once inside a woman’s heart
A man must keep his head
Heaven opens up a door
Where angels fear to tread
Some men go crazy
Some men go slow
Some men go just where they want
Some men never go
Lyrics by Rodney Crowell copied from Lyricfind
However in a few hours I will probably be lamenting and singing out “Shame on the Sun”. Yes, it has been that hot. Yesterday the high in Palm Springs was 121 a new record for that day. I only cried out “I am melting” a few times. I have lost a few plants because of the heat and need to McGuyver a self-watering system to keep the rest of my green-children alive. Bad enough, I have seen in news reports that a swarm of locust may be heading our way. Hopefully, they like the neon of Las Vegas and stay there as that is where the swarm was reported. Oh, the joy of gardening! They say gardening is relaxing, you know.
Oh oh here is another good song to start the morning. Shake Your Money Maker a song written by Elmore James. The version that I am listening to right now is the Black Crowes version featuring Jimmy Page on guitar. All I can say is yes, sometimes you gotta shake your money maker. I linked a copy of Youtube video of this song so you can listen for yourself.
I know it is easy to complain about the heat when the temp get this high but I must say, this hot weather does make my bones feel good and it gets me to the pool to exercise so I don’t want to knock it too much. Speaking of that, it is time to go and start the day.
Thank you for stopping by and where ever you are stay cool!
