Large Black Snake

Just awake and out the window
I thought I saw a large black snake.
I rubbed my eyes.
It was just a stick and a large black bird pecking the grass for bugs.
As I turned my head
I caught in the corner of my eye
the tiger as he was about to pounce.

It happened 44 Years Ago Today

On July 20, 1969, 44 years ago today, man left the planet earth, flew over 238,000 miles in a spaceship, and landed on the moon. He got out of the space craft and walked around on the surface of the moon.  Amazing.

Here is a NASA photo of Astronaut Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin on the moon. In Aldrin’s faceplate you can see the reflection of fellow Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to step on the moon and the Lunar Module. Click on the image for a larger view.

Can’t wait until we go back.

Happy Lucky Combo Theme Song

Here is a video of the Happy Lucky Combo playing their theme song at Crossroads Coffee shop on Forest Hill Avenue. Video by Karen Sokohl.

I once heard two young ladies walk by and one said to the other, “I wish I had a theme song that played as I walked by.”

Well don’t we all.
