"We're walking, we're walking..."

....we're walking..." Name that movie quote!

Just a few pictures I've snapped on recent walks about town.

All along the river there's these "skewered" piles of leaves. I get that they're caused by some sort of water movement but... how do they get skewered so perfectly?

Another cluster of leaves but this one looked like some sort of dried corsage of flowers and garlands. I thought it was pretty.

Sing? Uhm, okay.

"A long, long time ago...
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And, maybe, they'd be happy for a while."

Name that tune!


"I'm trying to tell you something about my life
Maybe give me insight between black and white
The best thing you've ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously, it's only life after all"

Name that tune!


"She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere,
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair."

Name that tune!


"Nibblin' on sponge cake,
watchin' the sun bake;
All of those tourists covered with oil.
Strummin' my six string on my front porch swing.
Smell those shrimp
They're beginnin' to boil."

Name that tune!

I think you have to be ooooold to have a chance at most of those. While you're thinking about them, let's keep walking...

Huh? They didn't want us to sing after all. Oh well, too late. "Left a good job in the city, working for the man every night and day...."

The sun set - the creek turns silver under the darkening blue skies.

We're not Paris, no miles and miles of window art. But I liked this one with oversized flowers in the window of a nursery and florist. What are those creatures. A swan. And.... are they bear cubs? Foxes? Dogs?

All the way dark. The lights in this shop made this bride look more like one of the undead. Perhaps it's time to get back home.

We're walking, we're walking....

Gosh how I LOVE American Pie, I know the others but now that I'm replying, I can't remember them! Oh, I can push that link and read...2nd song? blank? 3rd song, Beatles, but forget title, And of course, we're wastin' away again, in Margaritaville w/Jimmy Buffett!

So glad you're walking. I have the crud or I'd be walking too, as it's finally NICE here in New England. Last Sunday...nice...then Monday, WHAM 7" of snow (happened the week before the same way but we got 18" on that Monday)...kinda makes me worry about tomorrow's weather...specially since it's a balmy 50 at 11 a.m.....we could hit 65 today, woo hoo!

I think there's a Paul Simon song there somewhere... and the movie... I'm seeing White House corridors... The American President? The rest are on the tip of my tongue too. I'm the right age, but unfortunately, so is my grey matter! Oh well...

"We're walking, we're walking" is from the movie 'Dave' with Kevin Klein, I believe.
