Skyrockets in flight...

Oh Internet, Bdog is the one who posted Afternoon Delight, unbeknownst to me. And I love him for it. Though he didn't include my favorite line of "Skyrockets in flight".

And here's today's fave...it reminds me of standing night watch at 3:00 a.m. while I was part of the crew on The Brig Pilgrim when I was 10 yrs. old. One of the coolest experiences of my whole entire life...

We sail today
Tears will drown in the wake of delight
There's nothing like this built today
You'll never see a finer ship in your life

Along the way
The sea will crowd us with lovers at night
There's nothing like this built today
You'll never see a finer ship
Or receive a better tip in your life

White goddess, red goddess,
Black temptress of the sea, you treat me right
Black goddess, red goddess,
White temptress of the sea, you treat me right
White goddess, red goddess
Oh my love, we are sailing to Norway
Black temptress of the sea, you treat me right
Oh my love, we are leaving tonight
Black goddess, red goddess
Oh my love, we are sailing to Norway
White temptress of the sea, you treat me right
Oh my love, we are leaving tonight
White temptress of the sea, you treat me right

I have no idea what this is, but I am liking the repetition of Norway and goddess. In answer to your question, I'm so good! and I have nooo idea when i'm going to back around those parts. i hope soon though because I miss it.
