Hello all ...

After knowing Kathy for damn near 20 years ... I still have trouble saying goodbye and what she meant to me. I'm still speechless but I was listening to an old record the other day and this may have more meaning than my words ...



Thanks and Love!
- Hawk

As I roved out one summer's morn,
I saw a scarecrow tied to a pole in a field of corn.
His coat was black and his head was bare,
And as the wind shook him the crows took up into the air.

Ah, but you'd lay me down and love me,
Ah, but you'd lay me down and love me if you could.
For you're only a bag of rags in an overall
That the wind sways so the crows fly away and the corn can grow tall.

As I roved out one winter's day,
I saw an old man hanging from a pole in a field of clay.
His coat was gone and his head hung low,
Till the wind flung it up to look, wrung its neck and let it go.

How could you lay me down and love me?
How could you lay me down and love me now?
For you're only a bag of bones in an overall
That the wind blows and the kids throw stones at the thing on the pole.

As I rode out one fine spring day,
I saw twelve jolly dons dressed out in the blue and the gold so gay.
And to a stake they tied a child newborn,
And the songs were sung, the bells was rung, and they sowed their corn.

Now you can lay me down and love me,
Now you can lay me down and love me if you will.
For you're only a bag of rags in an overall
But the wind blew and the sun shone too and the corn grew tall.

As I roved out one summer's morn,
I saw a scarecrow tied to a pole in a field of corn.

Mike Waterson

Beaut. Exclamation

Yeah. I know that feeling.

"I'm still speechless"

Yep that one too.

Partly, it because it's beyond words, really.
Like describing the sun -instead of seeing it.

But that song hits the spot Wink

Thanks Hawk.

Thanks MC and JD.

Doing well. Wouldn't still be here if I wasn't.
Bummer, but being dead's a bigger bummer.
So there's that to consider too. :-)

We had lots to pack in to a too brief 20 years.
We got a lot in. Unthinkable not to have met.
Destiny baby.
Rock on.

cheers
