good song ron,
the kind intent of the universe is
moving through those gals.
it is.

i concur with your sentiment and i also admire their's talent.

now give the clancy boys a listen.
not far from magic, they.

you see, im a dutchman,
and i grew up next to a 100 acre
old-growth ranch "manned" by
a lady named margaret.

i used to walk over and she would
be stewarding the forest,
and she came from hard times
so there was always a tea about,
spiked with some gem...

i'd load her station wagon
with brush, and then help her burn it.
she'd share her flask with me.
i was 8.

her hubby had died,
and she was in love with her land.

years on, she had an aweful stroke,
and i found her, out drapped
miserably over a stump
and i helped her up, and drove
the brown corolla back to her cabin,
and called in for help.

margaret ended up in home,
and her spirit stayed on the ranch.
she starved herself to death,
i watched her wither, but i
could already see in her eyes
that no spark she harbored.

after she died,
her offspring inherrited the ranch,
and they had no connection to it.
so they sold it to the highest
bidder, which happened to be a logging firm.

i watched with great sorrow
the gutting of margaret's forest.

after the loggers were departed,
her campus went to ruins,
and i'd still visit, now and then.
collecting little momentoes of the shattered past.

some of these momentoes i put into my home,
that i built.

so margaret followed,
and now she resides on our land,
and we together, herald the forest entity;

though ironically,
i've become a logger in my pursuit of zero debt.
usually i concentrate on dead trees,
but occassionally i step on margaret's smile
and pivot on her rotten teeth as i clear-cut
some future building site.

i fall asleep on those days with sap on my heart,
the valves stuck wide open,
and i thrash about, in simul misery-wonder,
about where i've been and where im going.

and margaret, bless her,
is always there to soothe me as
we together, grow into the past,
and when i finally discover slumber,

she blows out the candle.

Awesome Weeg,, youve got a deep woodsmans soul - i know them well..

You "think on things often"..

edit: Ive had to "murder" old gents that were there on the hills growing for some 600 yrs only to have a jolt of super charged electricity send it into precarious circumstance. In felling it was an honor, and it death it was sad. One to die so others may live. I considered that very thing on every tree i ever marked for harvest..

I found Sid and Nancy a bit more compelling although a buddy in Seattle knew
Anne and Nancy and said they were very nice and good to hang with. Sid and
Nancy were prolly not easy to hang with.

I read somewhere the two sisters owned a studio in Seattle where a bunch of the classic grunge bands recorded.

Holy crap Weeg, that's some powerful stuff right there. Thank you for sharing it.

I too, remember a Margret in the Netherlands. I was pretty young, in the military doing cush duty, and driving my buddy Harry Vega from New Mexico to Schipol airport. He was ETSing out of the Army and had chosen to fly out via the main Dutch port. Don't ask me why there and not Frankfurt -the usual place, Harry was Indian and very notional. Made no sense to me, but I liked the vibe, plus he was my buddy and I had said I'd take care of him so I was damned well going to do so like I said I would. He asked me to get him there in my souped up Italian Auto Bianchi. No one in my little bullshit hierarchici seemed interested in letting me go, they in fact had directly stated: "NO WAY" when I asked nicely: I was suppose to be working, so I grabbed Harry and we took off midday all stealth like. F*#k em, I always took care of the important work when it was needed and what was left was total bullsh#t like picking up cigarette butts, doing the same routine training you had already conducted 14 times before and other dumbass stuff. Harry was my friend and they (bosses) were just douchbags. No time to change and me still in fatigues marked "US Army" ran for the car and fired that puppy up and like that Charlie Daniels song Easy Rider we spun out of there. Somewhere in central Netherlands, the freeway turned into a road and this dumbass in front of me stopped 7 or 8 car lengths back from the light. I rear-ended the car.

Out climbs the driver, a very old woman, and her @ 30ish year old son. The son is clearly pissed. I'm not worried as the last few fights I'd been in (and won) were against multiple as#@&%es at once, the weakest of which looked stronger than this pimple of a pissant, so I step up to apologize to her, trade info, and get the show on the road.

I'm feeling real damned uncomfortable as I've blown off my boss. Except doing it to this boss can wind you up in jail (AWOL). She squints as she sees the US Army insignia and asks "YOU S ARMI?" I'm looking like a dull pickle and an uncomfortable one at that. Sh#t, outted I think - I can't deny it, so I nod my head affirmative. The last time this question had occurred outside of a Bonn whorehouse, Harry and I had wound up in a German jail with no exit key, and no one was in any car accidents or going AWOL back then, just a bunch of insane Taxi drivers with chips on their shoulders and blackjacks in their hands. So I suspect that this is probably gonna play bad for the kid.

She steps up to me, and in tears, grabs me in the strongest bear hug I'd never paid for outside of a cathouse, and breaks down. I mean, TOTAL MELT DOWN. Tears of fear, tear of horror and tears of joy she crys so hard that I fear. I fear for her. I fear for the car, but I fear just generally -I've never seen anything like this. After the longest emotional crying time her head comes up to look at me and she softly touches my cheek with her hand, she looks at my face and touches me as if I am not real or she can't believe I am finally there for her. Crazy stuff. I say nothing but look deep into this elderly woman's eyes, puzzled at whats happening......whereupon she goes back to tightly hugging and crying....

Eventually, like a standing ovation which goes on way too long, she starts to come back to reality. I point to her car, and looking into her eyes ask: "what about your car".. She waves the car off without even looking at it and goes back to hugging me.

Eventually, we parted the best of insurance report or police to my relief. Harry got to the airport in plenty of time and I was left wondering what had occurred in her past. I love Dutch people and this was just one more reason why.

Got you so beat Anderson !

Anne and Nancy played my 9th grade high school dance in a new band called Heart.

They were Led Zeppelin clones at the time, so us fourteenagers put up with them playing Magic Man as long as we got to rock out to Stairway to Heaven.

The teachers had their hands full trying to stop all the mutual dry humping, under the glitter ball, in a darkened gymnasium...

After, we got no school dances for a while because of the neighbors complaining about all the barfing of beer on their lawns.

OK so I saw Heart play at the Nashville motor speedway back in the day. I was in the pit at the edge of the stage. I knew their music but not the band. The guitarist was dressed in jeans and a paisley vest with a pirate shirt. I thought he was a bit flamboyant. He did not sing at all.

It was literally YEARS before I learned he was a she... hah!

But sorry old dudes, they are SO Petty Como.

Jim, might have been the same year - I saw Heart at the 1st concert I ever went to, in '74 when I was in grade 11. They opened for BTO at the Kamloops Rodeo Arena (B.C., Canada). I was quite impressed to see two sisters leading a band and rocking out so hard!

That's great Terry !

It's good to see that something big was happened during doing the school dance circuit in 1975.

A shout out to Mushroom Record who did a lot of good for a lot of bands in the 70's and 80's. Alas, this musical oasis lost ground to the property values it stood upon.

It wasn't lame assed DMT...

It was anything live in the age of canned music. Especially covers of the good stuff. It didn't matter !
