I'm back,sorry I've been busy as well.

Next!: You think you're "soooo cool" by calling your cars hubcaps a "Circle of Steel".

Whenever there's news story about Britany,Kevin Federline,Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton you hope the anchor ends the story with "...It's much Too Late For Prayin'".

Your Dr. asks about your health and istead of just telling him,you sing "The Way I Feel"

and...I listen so long I actually start thinking Borderstone is about myself!

I told him the story, it was during the time you did Picture that Song. When did you get it? I was very sad that you didn't get it, it was many weeks or months at least. I thought it lost forever. Very glad that you received it, I bet you thought I was fibbing when I said I sent it. That was two years ago!! Borderstone got his less than a week after Gord signed it.
You do owe me an insert!

Someone asks you, upon your return from a garden/flower show, how it was, and you reply "I've seen a rose, watching it all fold out."

Hey all. I'm back,so here goes.

You take "Song For A Winter's Night" literally and only play it during
Mid- December,January and February and the first 20 days of March!

You rent the Katharine Hepburn movie "Morning Glory",expecting to hear Gordon's
song in it!

and!!!.....The IRS accuses you of tax fraud and you smoothly reply,"Now ya know I don't write no bad checks." LOL!

Very good Walter. Maybe if I keep working at it I will be able to play this game too. I was starting to get it last week hanging around with Kerstin and Kathy but I haven't worked on it this week. Oh well, there are just some things I am not very good at. Keep up the good work.

A friend is watching General Hospital and says the actors are "hot",you reply,
"So? ...You can even find them on The Young And The Restless too".

You think playing the song "Romance" is all you'll ever need to "set the mood".

You relentlessly drive up & down Carefree Highway trying to find " Ann's " address!!

and....you panic when a clock strikes midnight because you think it's the End OF All Time.

The New Girl in the office walks by and you think...

"rubbin' the wrong girl right."

I didn't really say that did I?


Your Boss makes some comment to you about a possible raise and you wonder if...

"Its Worth Believin'"


Money is a little tight this month and your wife makes some comment about...

"Tradin' off the Martin"

And you reply...

"Baby Step Back!"

(game) I had a "Summertime Dream" to go fishing and headed to "Christian Island" which is close to "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald". "Uncle Toad Said" the perfect spot was just around "Cherokee Bend" and "Much To My Surprise" there in the water sat a "Redneck Loon" and baiting my "Endless Wire" and casting into the "Shadows" of the stream, reeled in the most beautiful "Rainbow Trout"!

You swear the contractor who is building your home said,"The House You Live In" will never fall down".

Everytime someone tells you to stop doing something,you repeat,"I'd Do it Again"!

and.....you get a girlfriend whose name actually is Jenny and you insist she only wear cotton!

At one oŽclock in the afternonn, after 6 lessons taught and one more to go-no breakfast, no lunch break, I often hum to myself `Just for now IŽd like to rest in the shade of a maple tree..`.`My colleagues know that one by now and hum along. V.

Your high-tech wireless handheld device is making an odd high-pitched humming sound... you refer to it as BlackBerry "whine"

When you not only hear, but actually smell the sound of the beans boiling through the evergreens ... or was that the dog?

When you are sleepwalking in your pajamas, you reach your commuter train, and you try to climb aboard unseen. I KNEW I could do it !

When you introduce your mother's brother as "Uncle Toad."

When you start rubbing the wrong girl right, and you wake up alone in a wet bed. It's ok, that was the dream when Betty called me in.

When you stay up all night and can't get sleep because you're trying to figure out how long a moment like this could belong to someone. And it's twenty years after she'd gone and you still think you smell perfume. The answer's "20 years," you dope. Now get some sleep!

When you've completed your five-year search for a harbor that includes a lady barber.

On an airliner you think you hear the pilot say,"Thanks for taveling United ladies and gentleman,we're Flying Blind tonight."

Everyday when you go for a walk,you tell every woman you pass,Make Way For The Lady". :roleyes:

You go to customer service at a department store and ask for "Your love's Return". Then the lady hollers "SECURITY"!
