Season 631: I Mist You

I wouldn't miss a Jon week.

This STARTED as a song referencing the wind, but as you probably know, it also refers to the ants being my friend, so I took that premise and ran,..

{T:Bowling In to Win}

Have you perchance read "Ladle Rat Rotten Hut"? If you have, your Anguish Languish is soup herb! If you haven't, you must.
This has been on my list all week, then yesterday I saw it qualified for my Monday twofer.

And lo and behold, the weather has cooperated. It's raining, has been raining, and looks to continue to rain. It made for some solid percussion to accompany my rain song. (My iPhone alarm also joined in on the ending ... in key, I think!)

Who here remembers Casey Bee? I first learned this song, at her suggestion, for Season 169, her birthday week hosting celebration of her favorite artist, Warren Zevon, back in May 2015.

It's such a catchy and uplifting-from-a-dark-place kind of song. Warren Zevon's "Fistful of Rain".

It wasn't raining when I picked this song, but ... well, yeah, for sure it's the perfect song for this week:

Practiced all week and... welp... here you go :p

Have a lovely spring or autumn, y'all, depending on your hemisphere!

The title reminds me of another Nick Lowe song but too late now to record it, let alone practice! Thanks to @mountain goat for being the perfect host and a great week to everyone!

Thanks for a great season Jon, and for keeping us up to date with the weather reports (and the Peanuts :)). And of course for picking me out! It'll be lovely to receive some Tasmanian artwork.
Thanks very much for your generous hosting and the prizes as well. A stellar season all around! I will treasure your very personal gift of poetry!
Dreams by Fleetwood Mac, 1977

For those who weren’t old enough to drive a car in 1977, two words: “Couples’ Skate”

For everyone else, three words: “Turn it up!”

Clark, i think you have posted this at the wrong thread?
Also the first one that came to my mind. You did it far better than I would have.
That's very kind of you to say, thank you.
Sorry for the delay in responding. I've been in Luxembourg for the past few days, where public transport is free,
a train ride to Trier, Germany costs just €6 return...
and where, Trier being int. al., the birthplace of Karl Marx, to honour the great man, the crosswalk signage displays Karl Marx Ampelmännerchen!20240326_153029.jpg20240326_153019.jpg
