Sunday and Sundown....

Eventually two things will come to an end; first I will get through my complete iPod play list and second, we will finish painting my brother in law's house! I would put money on the latter, I have just reached song 995 of 1,246. Yesterday morning yet another bout of irony, songs that began with "Sunday" in the title (think U2 etc.). But my favorite song of the day had to be "Sundown" by Gordon Lightfoot.

Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain
Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain

It was quite a beautiful weekend in Kansas City, 82 and sunny on Saturday, windy and 65 yesterday. It was nice enough that we played disc golf both days. Saturday we had a big crowd and played a two man scramble, yesterday there was just four of us and we played down in the woods to avoid the 30+ mph wind gusts. I held my own and squeaked by with a one shot victory over Rich, Pete and Jud.

We spent seven hours Saturday and five more yesterday painting. The house looks great we are both aiming to finish next Saturday! I'm strange, yes for a lot of reasons, but I like painting, I always have. In some way I find it therapeutic or relaxing. I'm not sure what Ralph Macchio's problem was?

more ironic are the lyrics....Sunday Bloody Sunday....speaking to your pain.....How long how long must we sing this song...or perhaps...how long must we paint this house...
