Doodads — 12/26/19

I woke up today to sunny skies.  When I put recyclable items in the bin outside it wasn’t even cold, somewhere in the 50’s.  I ended up walking out back to check things out.  More trees have fallen because of the extremely high water table.   Looking up the clouds were moving fast.  Looking down I saw something never seen before:  a dandelion growing in December.

I took pics of the three red pine I started from seed a number of years ago.  There were 10 or so to start out with; these are the survivors.

This is a picture of a log the neighbor threw into where the creek was flowing so it would go through a pipe he put down there instead.  The fungi seem happy growing there.

The following song is one I heard on pandora while driving and risked death to write the name down on a sales slip to remember.

The Fratellis are a Scottish rock band from Glasgow, formed in 2005. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Jon Fratelli, bassist and backing vocalist Barry Fratelli, and drummer and backing vocalist Mince Fratelli. Their singles “Chelsea Dagger” and “Whistle for the Choir” were both top ten hits in the UK charts.

Chelsea Dagger” was released as the second single from their debut studio album, Costello Music (2006), on August 28, 2006. It is named after Jon Fratelli’s wife Heather, a burlesque dancer whose stage name – a play on Britney Spears – he borrowed for the song. Fratelli described the tune as “a rock ‘n’ roll gig in an old speakeasy or something like that.”

Well you must be a girl with shoes like that
She said you know me well
I seen you and Little Steven and Joanna
Around the back of my hotel, oh yeah

Someone said you was asking after me
But I know you best as a blagger
I said tell me your name is it sweet?
She said my boy it’s Dagger, oh yeah

I was good she was hot
Stealin’ everything she got
I was bold she was over the worst of it
Gave me gear thank you dear bring yer sister over here
Let her dance with me just for the hell of it

Well you must be a boy with bones like that
She said you got me wrong
I would’ve sold them to you
If I could’ve just have kept the last of my clothes on, oh yeah

Call me up take me down with you
When you go I could be your regular belle
And I’ll dance for little Steven and Joanna
Around the back of my hotel, oh yeah

I was good she was hot
Stealin’ everything she got
I was bold she was over the worst of it
Gave me gear thank you dear bring yer sister over here
Let ‘er dance with me just for the hell of it

Chelsea, Chelsea I believe that when you’re dancing
Slowly sucking your sleeve
The boys get lonely after you leave
It’s one for the Dagger and another for the one you believe

Chelsea I believe that when you’re dancing
Slowly sucking your sleeve
The boys get lonely after you leave
It’s one for the Dagger, another for the one you believe, the one you believe, oh no, no, no, no
Songwriters: John Lawler (aka Jon Fratelli)

  2. Hello Dandelion! So nice to see your cheerful head!
    I have a love/hate relationship with that song. I like it..it’s catchy and fun but that part-you know THAT PART- drives me up the friggin wall. I have a visceral sensory reaction to it,lol that makes me want to throw a beer bottle at somebody ;P It’s the strangest thing.
