30 More Bucks

Thirty more bucks to give away the house
I thought I gave away three years ago
To a never-till-it’s-panic-time ex-spouse.
Thirty more bucks to give away the house
So she can save on rates. I shouldn’t grouse.
She needs it more than me, but even so —
Thirty more bucks to give away the house
I thought I gave away three years ago!

Mike.. Sounds like the beginning of a great song.. Hope you are doing well. Just wanted to stop by & see how you’re doing & read your blog. Take care & stay in touch. We’re now down in Miami living on the Biscayne Bay in Mid Town Miami.. Having a great time. We do miss New Olreans. Had a blast there last year & of course I really miss my Maryland friends , but am doing fantasticly!

“Sympathy constitutes friendship; but in love there is a sort of antipathy, or opposing passion. Each strives to be the other, and both together make up one whole.” ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Thanks, Mary. I hope it does, too—it’s been a long dry spell.

Claudio, that’s a very apt quotation. Thanks.

Katie, our bass player did set it! Not a bad song at all.
