Life on Mars - Dear Diary

Dear diary, what a day it's been.
Dear diary, it's been just like a dream.
Woke up late. Wasn't where I should have been.
For goodness sake what's happening to me.
Write lightly, yours truly, dear diary.

Ray Thomas - Moody Blues

If you haven't fully experienced The Moody Blues you should. I think they were the first band to ever list their lyrics on an album, well Maybe Hendrix did, but it wasn't popular to do back in those days. Moody Blues had something to say and it was great, like "the sound of color and the light of a sigh" at least it all made sense when I was taking those hallucinogenics.

Sometimes things get so weird here that I think I'm on a bad trip. Maybe I should have listened to my parents and stayed away from that stuff. This week was so weird if I told you about it, you either wouldn't understand or wouldn't believe it. But on the Plus side.....

We did spend half a Day at the Lake Erie Beach, and had a wonderful Firework show by the neighbors. Here is a little clip.

So even though the week was weak, Dear Diary, it ended with a Bang.

Your neighbors could do professional fireworks. lol! Great show.

At first I thought maybe you would make a reference to David Bowie's Life on Mars. Moody Blues are great. Back in the days I use to sit for hours listening to albums and reading lyrics on the inside. I guess now we have the internet for lyrics but it ain't the same.

Wishing you a wonderful 4th of July! Let it be a good trip. :)

Happy 4th of July! Those fireworks are awesome!

Let's just hope this week is not as weird or as crappy!
