Is this a poll? I also have green socks.

If I were more responsible, I'd be pulling burr clover out of the lawn before it seeds. Bump.

Bumpin' from the 3rd floor. I see flower beds below and something blooming. Not sure but it's probably daffodils.

We haven't had plenty of bumpin' snow all season. It snowed often, but didn't amount to much.

The bumpin' snow can melt any time, as far as I'm concerned.

I wish we had bumpin' rain. It would melt the snow. I'm tired of winter.

So maybe move to southern Florida, where you can dread the rising sea level -- or maybe southern California where you can dread the bumpin' earthquakes. (Now *that* is some bumpin' dreadful bumpin'.)

Winter took its toll on our roads. Lot of potholes, making for a bumpy ride.

She comes out of her slump, in a silk dress bumpin'
Like a watercolor in the rain.
Don't bother asking for explanations,
She'll just tell you that she came,
In the year of the cat.

Beck, you inspired me to complete the song. So here we go:

"Back Home With Her Cats," with apologies to Al Stewart

It might be from a Doper movie,
In a clinic where Hilda prevailed,
She went through rehab just like a soldier,
And which she detailed.
She came out of her slump, in a silk dress bumpin'
Like a watercolor in the rain.
Don't bother asking for explanations,
She'll just tell us that she came,
Back home to her cats.

She gave us lots of time for questions,
As she ate up her hospital food,
And we asked until our sense of which direction,
Was bordering on rude.
Walking through the halls by the hospital walls,
There's a door she wants to lead us to,
It's an exit, that she says that she's going through,
Back home to her cats.

Well, she posted here so cooly,
Not quitting, always humorously,
No need for incense nor patchouli,
But we heard plenty how she wanted to be,
Back home with her cats.

Beck, Monday came and you're still with us,
And thankfully, now, hospital's gone,
And you don't know how much you've been missed here,
So you have to stay on.
But the bumpin' strain of your absence remains,
In the rhythm of this new-born day,
We all hope that you'll never leave us,
But for now, you're fine if you stay,
At home with your cats.

At home with your cats.


This one's for you, Beck. Enjoy!

Oh, and bump.

I'm glad that Becks is back (is that an Elton John song I hear in the background?). I'm impressed with the song re-writing. And I'm working from home. Bump.

An Elton John song? Hmm, there's a project to consider.

Bump.

Bumped to say that I haven't forgotten about "Our Beck is Back," but sometimes, these things click quickly, and sometimes they take a little time.

Partly, it's been our weather. It's been nicely springlike lately, and the snow is gone, so I've been getting out for walks in the park, and just spending time in the back yard. I've been distracted, in other words. But I will continue to try.

Try this, Beck, and others:

She blew on our scene, back in 'Seventeen
Playin' the Thread Games like we ain't seen,
Talkin' 'bout her home in Arkansas,
And how Li'l Wrekker has herself a Ma. Oh, oh, oh!

She became a part of our community,
Spreading her life out, for all to see,
Then we heard about her kidney Pancho,
And how doctors figured that he had to go. Oh, oh, oh!

She's our Beck, she's our Beck, oh our Beck is back,
Minus one kidney, as a matter of fact,
She's our Beck, she's our Beck, and we're glad that she's here,
It's her bad, bad, way; her posts that we hear, oh, oh, oh.

She told us her tale, of how she ailed,
Dealt with Hilda, and how she wailed,
Now she's home, and we're thankful for that,
The Dope is so much better when our Beck gets back.

Beck, Beck, our Beck is back....


First draft only, I'm afraid, but I hope that it will do for now.

Bump.
