Some Are, Some Aren't 4.



Been driving.

All day.

There's a melon on the back seat.

The window is open, the day streams in, and around.

But only the melon remains.

It was ripe when i bought it this morning.

Before the sun was really up.

Now i will have to stop and eat it.

I can go no further.

Loneliness is like this too.

It builds slowly, until it is too much.

the road can be lonely.

Loneliness can't be eaten.

It eats you.

Eddie is right --

Ain't no cure
for the summertime
blues.

One good song deserves another. Doesn't get any better than the man himself - Roy Orbison -- Only the Lonely -- from the album Lonely and Blue.

Mary!!
I thought you had abandoned me!
Great great song but is it "summery"?
Because.......

Underworld?
Thanks.

Yes - you are correct. But the song had to do with loneliness which is what you were talking about.

Anyway - yes - Hades is the Greek god of the underworld. 'Hot as Hades' is a saying from the Southern U.S. but technically -- as you point out -- is incorrect. I think they were trying to avoid using the word 'hell'.

Anyway, haven't abandoned anyone. Am right here where I always am -- working away.

Enjoying SA/SA etc.

One more song -- this time it is summery. 'Hot fun in the summertime' -- Sly and the Family Stone. Takes me back to when I wss a teenager:
