Sailboats on Lake Monona, very free and easy...

Easy, like biking the Capital City bike trail...
Silver Madison skyline let me be...

We are leaving — you don't need us...

I crossed the St. Croix river at Prescott, WI, and the same river at Hudson, WI today on the way back. The river is full of boats. A lot of the boats are big big big.

"Wooden ships on the water, very free and easy,
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be,
Silver people on the shoreline, let us be,
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy...
Horror grips us as we watch you die,
All we can do is echo your anguished cries,
Stare as all human feelings die,
We are leaving - you don't need us."

These are great pictures. You must be not only a scholarly blogger but also a blogger who is enjoying life. Keep it up.

Sailboats are sexy in a masculine way. What's a sailboat without an alpha man commanding it?

In fact, you never ever see a sailboat without an alpha man captain, do you?

Bikes are sexy in a feminine way, especially when they're being ridden by sexy females. Alpha men would do well to stay away from bikes-- like shorts, bikes are only for childish males.

Paths? Paths are asexual. Once you are on the way down the path it is too late to think about sexy.

My dad and I were out fishing on Lake Monona today - the sailboats were pretty, but the sheriff's office pulling over everyone violating the no-wake policy was much more amusing.

"...free and easy" reminds me of the gals at St. Peter-Marian back in the day.
Also brings to mind this catchy country(?) ditty I've heard on the radio just about every day since I moved to the south.

Very brooding, midsummer and sultry.

Hope you aren't having the hot and humid the way we are.

Depends on how you define an alpha man.

Bikes are sexy in a feminine way, especially when they're being ridden by sexy females. Alpha men would do well to stay away from bikes-- like shorts, bikes are only for childish males.

The Japanese Army conquered Malaya on bicycles.

Will any other generation have their music become such a part of them as we did.

The Airplane version was incredible.

AST said...

Say, when you hit the "Purple Berry Café" again, can I have some?

Joan said...

I've always liked that song. Even though it tells an apparently post-apocalyptic sci-fi story, the music and the harmonies are lovely.

Meade said...

Sure, AST, have as many as you want. I've been eating them now for over a month.

But I should warn you - I did get a little sick.

Once.

Only once.

But I don't know - it might've been those pesky silver people.

The ones on the shoreline.

They sort of make me sick.

Naw...We're "special"!

Um...and an especially BIG demographic group.

Penny said...

Dead Julius made me laugh. So thanks!

Sadly though, given your earlier comments, no wonder you're not the live and jivin' Julius. haha

NEVER get between a man and his "boy toy", my friend.

Bikers gonna come git you and make you Dead Julius II.

OK, question for you...

What's the difference between big tits and a big demographic group?

Only one tit can vote, silly!
