Mercedes Banned Commercial

Having A Bad Day?/ Feeling Down?/ Feeling Blue?

Click on the link and come with me for a drive through the Oregon countryside of a nice sunny afternoon,. You'll feel a lot better.

Ps. I uploaded two versions of this in case the copyright deleted one of them. I liked them both so I left them both.
The top link is Kathleen Battle singing an aria from 'Zaide', Mozart's unifinished opera. It is one of the most beautiful of his arias for soprano and Kathleen Battle has the superb voice for it. Her soprano is pure, sweet and very beautiful. It seems most appropriate that she should accompany us in our short afternoon drive.

From One Bridge To The Next

The mirror-like Umpqua River in Southern Oregon on a warm and still early summer's evening in the month of June. Those little white patches you see are a reflection of the overhead stray clouds.

So this is kinda funny, because we usually don't get dressed up. We did have a lot of fun. Our friends Richard and Cheryl went too.

Happy Bloomsday To All

STATELY, PLUMP BUCK MULLIGAN CAME FROM THE STAIRHEAD, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. A yellow dressing gown, ungirdled, was sustained gently-behind him by the mild morning air. He held the bowl aloft and intoned: Introibo ad altare Dei.
Opening lines of Ulysses.
then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down Jo me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes.
Closing lines of Ulysses
