I saw you in Mercedes Benz
practicing self-defense;
you got it pretty good I guess,
I couldn't see your eyes...
We don't stop playing because we grow old.
We grow old because we stop playing.

Well Sir, there are a few parts of you that look anything but soft, but then again I wear glasses so who knows!

Well, Lori;
I suppose, on occasion, my skull isn't entirely soft... :D
But there may be a bit of a smudge on one of your glasses as well.

Or not.
follow your bliss,mike

Once in a while you can get shown the light
In the strangest of places if you look at it right

Nice.

Welcome to the Forums, Bob.
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Welcome Bob

Quick question: Have you heard the Jimmy Buffett version of that song?

If not I highly recommend it!

Bob

It's the second to last song on the Album Licence to chill.

Isn't it odd how we learn about music, I went and checked out the Dead's version after hearing his.

"I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles
And never frowns
Soon I will be president...

...Carter Power will soon go away
I will be Fuhrer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will meditate in school
Your kids will meditate in school!"
