    My first album purchase as a teenager, along with Are You Experienced and Disraeli Gears. Thanks for reminding me.

    “In a bar, on a a whim,
    I said there’s two kinds of men and you’re neither of them.”

    “The bottom line’s been snorted. The bottom card’s been dealt.”

    “Strap them kids in,
    Give ‘em a little bit of Vicodin,
    And some Cherry Coke.
    We’re gonna have us a time!”

    So many.

    Took my dog, Zeppelin, to the veterinarian for his annual physical a couple of months ago. As the vet was poking and prodding the poor beast, my cell phone rang - my ring tone, the opening licks from Sweet Home Alabama. Without missing a beat or looking up from poor Zep, she hit that line in perfect time. Turn it up.

    I like my vet.

    " If the sun refused to shine
    I would still be loving you.
    ( when) Mountains crumble 'to the sea
    It would still be you and me"

    ( " Thank You" Led Zep, one of my fave love songs)

    A man and a women come together as strangers,
    When they part
    They're usually strangers still.

    Great tune. Steve Earle version is my Dad's party piece. Truckers national anthem.

    Sorry to be nit-picky, but it was said by the joker to the thief.

    (It is possible the joker was also a drunkard.)
