RE A String Of Pearls, Moonlight Serenade

The latter had lyrics; the former was a true instrumental, unless I'm wrong. Each instantaneously evokes the WWII era, or shortly prior to it. The James Stewart Glenn Miller biopic features the (mostly-forgotten) words to "Serenade".

Hey buddy, what are you doing out of uniform?

Hiya Jefferson!

ROBERT EARL KEEN: "Then Came Lo Mein"

There were lean times, they were tough
There were mean times they were rough
And the good times didn't outweigh the bad
I was sad you were bitter
But you were no quitter
When nothin' was all that we had

We were drinkin' a lot
We were thinkin' of tyin' the knot
Or maybe throw in the towel
Make up have a kid
Break up and we did
But only just for awhile

Then came lo mein and going insane
At the Chinese cafe way downtown
I was steamed I was fried but you stood by my side
When I had my nervous breakdown

There were noodles galore
All over the floor
And hot mustard sauce everywhere
But I held your hand `til you calmed down again
And picked out the rice in your hair

After that we agreed
When in fact what we need
Is to pack up and take the first plane
Take a bus take a bike
Take care take a hike
Take out but leave the lo mein

I remember it now when we order kung pao
And bow our heads to say grace
The day we left town and that nervous breakdown
At the all-you-can-eat Chinese place
At the Chinese cafe way downtown

Had wondered where you went. Hoping you get to feeling better. However, if you need someone to take the vicodin off your hands, I can email you my address. JK, maybe.

RE As Time Goes By

Some prime old music on here.

An old tune by one Herman Hupfeld (!)(?) from some Thirties show (forget the name) was taken out of mothballs for "Casablanca". Hupfeld isn't even given a credit in the titles, as I remember.

If she can stand it, so can I.

Randy...thanks for the endorsement.

I love to visit the Wreck whenever I get the chance, but the chances don't come as often as I'd like.

This is by far the best forum I've seen at Amazon. Interesting stuff, nice people...the lowest jerk factor anywhere.

Did you know:

Many people believe Eric Clapton is nicknamed "Slow Hand" because of his style of play. It is actually because at a concert once, he played his gui-tar so hard one of the strings broke. He proceeded to re-string it. As he did, the fans in attendance began a "slow hand" clap.

and now YOU know......the rrrrrest of the story!

ROGER CLYNE & THE PEACEMAKERS: "Jack Vs. Jose"

Well, I stepped off the bus in Memphis
And stumbled into the first saloon I could find
I bellied up to the rail and summoned my barkeep
I ordered up a tequila, some salt and a lime
And she said, "Son, you ain't from around here, is ya?"
And I said politely, "No, no ma'am, I ain't."
She said, "Sonny, let me give you a little bit of friendly Southern advice,
We don't use that junk around here for nothing 'cept, well, maybe thinning out paint."

And she said, "Son, why don't you take a look around and tell me what you see."
Well, I saw a lot of white-felt Stetson hats and gatorskin boots
You know, and every Southern man who had a lady on his arm was drinking whiskey.

So I said, "I do not wish to be out of order, ma'am. I am not a tramp or a bum.
The dusty Mexican borderlands are where I have just come from,
And with all due respect and deference, tequila is my preference."

So she said, "Relax, honey, you know I would never treat you wrong."
And then she poured me up three fingers of that old Number 7.
She said, "Rest assured, darlin', if we're drinkin' it down here in Dixie,
That's 'cause that's what they're pourin' up in Heaven."
And I said, "Ma'am, your hospitality is well intentioned,
Yes, I know you mean to treat me well. It's just that
Where I come from, born and raised in Arizona, don't you know,
Me and my friends be more likely to be found drinking what they serve down in hell."

And she said, "Son, why don't you just take a look around and tell me what you see."
Well, I saw a lot of furrowed brows under them white-felt Stetson hats
And every Southern man who had a lady on his arm was looking kinda angry.

So I said, "I do not wish to be out of order, gents. I am not a tramp or a bum.
The dusty Mexican borderlands are where I have just come from.
And with all due respect and deference, tequila is my preference."

(Okay, Scotty J., take it away)

So she said, "Hey, look, you little pole-cat, you better knock that whiskey back
Before Southern folks get angry and we come and skin you to the bone.
And I ain't exactly sure how that old saying goes, boy, but I do know it underscores the fact
That you best be drinking what the Romans drink when you're drinking down in Rome."
And I said, "Ma'am, I can see that you just do not understand.
And I've been trying to get a proper drink out of this bar now the whole damn night,
So kindly set me up that tequila, honey, and let me get it into my blood
And I will take you and your whiskey-sipping Southern boys up on that there fight."

And she said, "Son, why don't you just take yourself a look around and tell me what you see."
Well, I saw a lot of grinding teeth, and I saw a lot of clinching fists out there
And every Southern man who once was over there sitting at the bar was up and coming after me

So I said, "I do not wish to be out of order here, gentlemen,
I am not a tramp, and I am not a bum.
The dusty Mexican borderlands are where I have just come from,
And with all due respect and due respect and deference,
Yeah, with all due respect and deference, mmmm,
With all due respect and deference...

Gentlemen, kindly do not throw me out ass backwards for hankerin'
For a less civilized spirit. Why don't I just mosey on along
And find my tequila on my way back...
West."

Adios, rogando y con o mas rodando. Katie, bar the door,
pass the gunpowder, and praise the Lord, and as I make
haste, yet slowly, to mis amigos you may deem lowly and unholy,
I will tell them what I've learned. Though I've been gulagged and I've
been spurned, si a Roma fueres haz como vieres, or
When in Rome do as the Romans do. But Memphis, why not try
something new, and when the barbarians arrive here at your
gate, treat us not with fear and hate, for we come not to
conquer, or be rude, but to raise a glass and say, "Salud."

RE "Hello Goodbye" clip

Group sent it in to Ed Sullivan, if I remember correctly. The Beatles wore their "Sgt. Pepper" regalia. The only way to see the band by then was on film or videotape; they didn't perform in the States again after the summer of 1966.

Mouse,

Whew! I'm glad you're feeling a little better.

I got a prescription for Vicodin, but I got Hydrocodon as a substitute. That turned out to be comparable to Tylenol extra strength.

Blamster,

I find the hydrocodone does the job just fine. It not only beats the pain but puts me to sleep, which means I can only take it at bedtime. So ... if anybody has any of that they want to unload, you've got my email address! LOL!

Lady Z,

Re: Sleep inducing drugs

I used to get colds more often. I only get one every five years or so now(scale of 1 to 10, it would be a 2). I used to swear by Contac, the tiny time pills, but man it would knock me out for hours! Now(last time I had a cold) I take Sudafed-non drowsy. Great stuff.
