Song for Friday...late

My song for Friday is a bit late today.
Last night a loud crash, the house shook and the power lines bounced up
and down in arcs.
Next thing was that the top of the power pole down the road exploded and I called 911.
Seems that someone was driving too fast or swerved to avoid
a deer and slammed into the pole breaking it in half!
Luckily the pickup truck was a big one and the man, 2 teenage girls
and two dogs were all o.k but they had to sit in
the crashed truck for an hour and a half while
the power company had to come and make sure they got out safely.
Police, ambulance and the whole neighbourhood were out on the road.
Hence our power was out all night, no wifi either, just connecting early this morning.
So my song for Friday is about slowing down a little...
Have a great weekend all!
Take your time...

Sorry about the mishap and power outage. I'm thankful that all are well. Listening to "Feeling Groovy" certainly brought back memories of listening to Simon and Garfunkel a "few" years ago! LOL. They have so many great tunes!

Last night I attended our local Jr. College's opening-night production of "HAIR." Let's just say it was interesting. Small crowd. (Let's face it, it's not a family show.) I really don't think today's youth understands the mental posture of the protests and passion of the 60's and 70's. At least it didn't come through in the acting.
