Lasting memories

Cover Song Saturday: Jimmy Buffett – “I’ll be Home for Christmas”

The song is sung from the point of view of a soldier stationed overseas during World War II, writing a letter to his family. In the message, he tells the family he will be coming home and to prepare the holiday for him, and requests snow, mistletoe, and presents on the tree. The song ends on a melancholy note, with the soldier saying, “I’ll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams”. Kim Gannon claimed on at least one occasion that he was not thinking of the soldiers when he wrote the lyrics but of all people who are unable to be home for Christmas. When he pitched the song to people in the music business, they turned it down because the final line was too sad for all those separated from their loved ones in the military. When playing golf with Bing Crosby, however, Gannon sang the song for Crosby, who decided to record it. The flip side of the original recording (Decca 18570B) was “Danny Boy” Source: I’ll Be Home for Christmas – Wikipedia

Haiku – After the Season

Fall leaves dance about

Across the wooden boardwalk

As the waves rumble

+

Inspiration struck after reading this article.

Sure, few lucky ducks get to the beach all year round (we’re looking at you Florida), but for most of us, fall means it’s time to hang up our swimsuits for the season. Luckily, there are a few sandy shores across the country which offer an extra incentive to visit after Labor Day. At these seven spots, the beach gets better when the days get shorter — meaning you can continue your seaside excursions well into the autumn months. Source: 7 Beaches That Are Better In The Fall – Margaritaville Blog

Haiku – 3 Looks at Bend

Pleasant start today

With cool air and morning dew

Summer bends to fall

+

Sometimes you must bend

Give in just a tiny bit

To make things better

+

Sharp bend in the road

Sports car going way too fast

Dead man’s curve ahead

Cover Song Saturday: Jimmy Buffett – Scarlet Begonias

Original

Cover

Since I heard it first by Buffett, I have to lean in that direction. I also am a huge Buffett fan (as most of you know), so I will almost always lean in his direction. I do like the Dead’s version a lot though, but I’m only an occasional Dead fan so their version just doesn’t grab me as much as Mr. Margaritaville. Just saying. So, your call, going with the Deadheads or the Parrotheads on this one?

Haiku – In the Jungle

Cascading gently

Soft tropical waterfall

Warm and inviting

+

Funny how we are inspired to write. I came up with warm tropical waterfall while washing my sons hands before he had breakfast. I thought, that would be a great line in a Haiku. So, I sat down and wrote this one out this morning. Hope you enjoy it.
