Exorcising the earworm

So, for the past several days, a phrase from this song has been rattling in my head - prolly cuz they ain't much else there.  So, of course, in order to free myself of said demon, I must send it your way.

Y'all enjoy, now, y'hear?

Like the Three Amigos, I suppose everyone has their own personal El Guapo Austin.

Edit:  Shelton sure looks young and dorky in that video.

The specific earworm that I couldn't shake was: 

She heard but she couldn't believe -
What kind of man would hang on that long
What kind of love that must be.

Choose Trojans

The USC Trojan marching band, that is.

With special note of a young and beautiful Stephanie Lynn, twirling a baton.

J-Mac is represented by a cardboard cutout as he was in Tahiti during the recording of the video.

Sunday Snippets

Reviewing my phone pics - random thoughts:

It's said to take ten At-Attaboys/At-Attagirls to make up for one "Oh, $----!"
I guess these folks are halfway there...

Hi-Yo!  Is this Clayton Moore's truck?

Goodwill hunting - A Nambé three section server (proprietary aluminum alloy
 functional art, from New Mexico), with one badly tarnished section.

When I finished with the white and brown polishing compounds, mine looked 
like this one offered on Ebay for $72, though I'd paid just 1/9th of that.

Except for the blind spot, I think the Veloster would be a blast to drive.

Others brought gold, frankincense, and myrrh -
this wise man brought the Force...and unusual syntax.

El Jefe's boss did not really die on the dusty plaza of Santa Poco,
 and now markets a plethora of ethnic cuisine spices.

He returns...after reloading, of course.

Some things are self-explanatory.

Meet Señor Scion - but really, shouldn't this be on a
Fiat 500...or at least a Ford Fiesta?

Following a recent managers' meeting, executive management
treated us to a catered event at Top Golf.
Conclusion?  I suck at golf.

Daughter's friends keeping vigil over a pair of teeth
(in the plastic container) left for the TF.

Hey, whaddya know!

Here's a band I'd like to hear..

...excepting Gov. Moonbeam, of course!

I plucked this photo out of one of the Ronstadt tributes.  Pictured L-R behind Linda and Moonbeam are David Lindley, Eagles, Dan Fogelberg (between Meisner & Walsh), and, obviously, Jackson Browne.

For those who may think they don't know David Lindley, he's a multi-talented maxi-instrumentalist musician, who contributed the high falsetto you've heard hundreds of times on Jackson Browne's Stay.

Лео Толстой в 1909 году

Accustomed to sitting on top of unsold copies of War and Peace as makeshift booster seats in the dining room of the patriarchal dacha, Leo Tolstoy's grandchildren, circa 1909 are entertained by the writer, but not before asking the octogenarian: "Дед, это будет долгий рассказ?"
