My Musical Beach Day


“So, Joe, you’re back to work tomorrow.”
“Yep, I think I’ll head to the beach today.”
Summertime is my favorite season. I really enjoy hanging out at the beach and I live close enough to jump in the car and be there in just a few minutes. My wife said I spend too much time in my room and I should get out and exercise. So I packed a lunch (egg salad for me and chips for the seagulls), ironed my Speedo (I always like to look good) and grabbed my cap. My wife often reminds me …
“Joe, make sure you leave your hat on!”
“Yes dear, I don’t want to burn my hair.”

So, off I went. It was a beautiful day, the clouds were a bit thick and although there was an invisible sun, I really felt the heat on my back and shoulders as I casually strolled along the water’s edge.
"Owwwwww! Damn kids and their stupid holes in the sand!”
Oops! Sorry, but that hurt. A little deeper and I’d have to learn Japanese (or is it Chinese?)
Has that ever happened to you? You know, you’re not watching where you going and suddenly one leg will just keep on going down.
Anyway, I continued to limp along, humming a tune.
When I got home a few hours later, my wife, home from her day at work, greeted me at the door.
“So, Joe, how was your day? Was it something to blog about?”
“Since you asked, I did come up with an idea. I’m going to post a music video blog.”
I hope you didn’t mind all the links and stayed a while to enjoy the music. I’m pretty tired now so I think it’s time to hit the pillow and head off to never never-land.
Goodnight.

What fun - Sting in my secret boyfriend number 14 so I was on cloud nine - or should it be cloud fourteen? Anyway, hope you enjoyed your day at the beach and didn't burn your hair.

Thanks!

Nothing like a little Hot Fun in the Summertime.

When the weather’s fine, you got women you got women on your mind.

Totally awesome and very creative, I like, I like!

The Crow...ahhh love it. And Metallica's Sandman always gives me goosebumps down to my..well you know. Forgiven is another one I am dear to. I can relate to that one very much, unfortunately.

I give this a 10 out of 10 just for having us go down memory lane while reading about your casual day at the beach!

Thanks!

Why leave your hat on? "Men Without Hats" rocks!

Why isn't scalp burning similar to crop burning where the soil is regenerated and things grow much better after that...

Speedo or not....you got pretty good taste in music! :)

VE: Why isn't scalp burning similar to crop burning
Me: In this case ... finding a hat big enough to prevent either one.

me: thanks slick! BTW ... I'm really enjoying your posts. You're right about the Speedo there's just no flattering angle to capture.
