And just for a little bit of fun on this first Monday in May, why not a clever, happy song from Postmodern Jukebox, with Morgan James on lead vocals ...
A quick, special note: yesterday afternoon I had the opportunity to talk with fellow blogger Amanda, who is spending a week in the US as a birthday gift from her husband (who has set the birthday gift bar rather high for the rest of us, considering that they live in Brisbane, Australia). Amanda was between flights at Dallas/Ft Worth airport, and fed the pay phone so that we could chat for a while. Sadly, she won't be coming through the NoVa area so that we could have met up in person, but it was a real treat to actually talk with someone I've known for years only through blog posts and letters. I told her I'd always been curious to know what the voice of a Chinese lady from Australia would sound like ... turns out it's soft, with the merest trace of a Chinese accent and only an occasional hint of "Stroyne." Welcome to America, Amanda ... I hope you enjoy your visit!
Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.
