Behind The Iron(y)


It all depends on how you look at it, really…




If you’re wondering, dear reader, what on earth inspired this post, the answer lies in a challenge.


A Hazy Shade of Winter – listen to it at YouTube

Time, time, time, see what's become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hear the salvation army band
Down by the riverside, it's bound to be a better ride
Than what you've got planned
Carry your cup in your hand
And look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hang on to your hopes, my friend
That's an easy thing to say, but if your hope should pass away
It's simply pretend
That you can build them again
Look around, the grass is high
The fields are ripe, it's the springtime of my life

Ahhh, seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won't you stop and remember me
At any convenient time
Funny how my memory slips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime

Look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
Look around, leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground...

I looked at this challenge, and you definatly win it in my book!!! I don't need to go to YouTube, I memorized this song long ago and am singing it in my head now. You know, we are BOTH huge S&G fans!!

I really enjoyed this post! Especially because I knew what prompted it. Very clever! :)

I popped over to the challenge and now i know why you have a very good photo of your iron in your post. i think your 3 photos are very creative with the quotes. like all three and now when I think of you I cn see you sitting at your desk with your new laptop. I have never heard the song or read the words. very good.

No. No. No. Your post isn't sad at all in the sense that mine was. It's brilliant and a very funny response too. I agree, however, that as a display of pathos your post wins hands down. Congratulations.

GB. I wasn't really trying to compete. But it was a challenge, nevertheless.
