Our village will host a Repas Western in the summer. We will supply the burgers. Somehow, we will also supply the country music. Brent found a great country music collection that I have been listening to. It covers a huge range of years. “Back in the Saddle Again,” “Boy Named Sue,” and “Boot Scootin Boogie” to name a few. The songs play along as I cook or clean or do all those other things. I enjoy listening to that country music poetry. The song after Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You,” arrested me. Two bass notes in, I was tossed back to my younger ears. Don Williams, ” I Believe In Love ” triggered some sort of childhood memory of me dancing on the toes of my dad at our local Vet’s club. I’m sure there is some fuzzy memory going on there, but it’s nice to think back and remember being Minty’s age, stepping on my dad’s toes while he stepped around, dancing to something like ” I Believe In Love.” It has just the right tempo for dancing with children.
Dragon I is away ( that is our lovely daughter Lucy ). When Lucy is away, the house settles into another rhythm. It’s very calm. Minty decided to make gingerbread men. This was her first time, so we put on the iPod and I helped her along.
As she moved from gingerbread men to gingerbread cyclops ( a by-product of big raisins ), that song came on. And so, I went from dancing on my father’s toes to baking with my daughter. She worked hard on her men. Decorated appropriately, they were in the stomaches of the family quicker than her effort. But they were lovely.
I’m not exactly sure what this song is about, but I don’t believe also in many similar things. And don’t believe in the believed things such as the magic part and the gasoline part. Curious about the virginity. And sometimes, I wish Superman was still alive helping out with the pasture.
