Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.
Yesterday I was as mad as hell when workers down the road parked on my new garden. So I spent a good five minutes looking for some lipstick to write on their windscreen. But I decided against that and instead stormed down to where they were working and asked them to move their, ahem, vehicle off my, um, garden, or words to that effect. No really, I was very polite. Unfortunately, there was a fatality.
Anyway, this only goes to prove, ladies and gentlemen, that you shouldn’t let your cats roam. On July 1, Canberra’s new cat containment rules came into effect. Clearly I hadn’t taken the appropriate steps to confine my cat. Canberrans, take note. Cats inside to stay alive. I’ll spare you the poem. Seriously, if you haven’t done so already, please set up a cat run to increase the chance of your cat and our wildlife having a long and happy life.
More generally, it has been a really awful week. Internationally, many innocent people were murdered. In Sydney and the mid north coast, there were yet more soul-crushing, home/business destroying floods; while at home in Canberra, my youngest son is sick again. Probably a Covid re-infection. He tested positive again but it doesn’t count in the official numbers because it happened less than 12 weeks after his last infection. Could be a regular coronavirus I suppose. None of this is any surprise, not really.
Anyway, it’s time for your medicinal Friday song fix. Let’s listen to Joe Bonamassa performing Just Cos You Can, Don’t Mean You Should. Songwriters are Joe Bonamassa and Tom Hambridge. Enjoy.
So, against that backdrop, I am sure you will agree that a little storming does not a public menace make. Indeed, the moral of this story is keep your lipstick in your pocket and your cat out of trouble, and stay cool.
Take care, everyone.
