Why am I deja vu-ing this, Juice. After two such announcements that Daytona Beach’s (50-some miles outta Snaffurd) closing down Saturday afternoon’s last full night of Bike Week – and the traditional Sunday after the blessintgs of bikes and bikers parade outta town, the radio rock palace W-HOG (ISYN! Just like a Marine’s Sea Story, Lance Coolie!) went back to ignoring the Mayor and “The Pronouncements” and played some good ol’e down home longishrock and roll. And your Clarion CAlling Crow just fits right in! Thanks, Bruce!

"Tried & Tired*"

(March 15, 2020)

Tired and Tried, both

*(Still working out which it should be: ‘Tried And Tired’ or ‘Tired And Tried.’ Both have points. The semi-stray cat is losing weight or its a just grown up ‘nother offspring stopping by to see where the water went or what’s on offer or if a lazy lizard on the menu. Rather a realistic metaphor for Sunday, March 15, 2020, as all the rules reworked to make bureaucracies work best for our good health and comfort, donchaknow?)
