11:50am: We are surfin’ the interweb and Jay Blakesberg Photography has photographer Michael Grecco as his guest on his Facebook LIVE sharing his pics and talking about his new book “Punk, Post Punk, New Wave: Onstage, Backstage, In Your Face, 1978 to 1991″
….so of course we stopped to watch. NOTE: THAT WAS TOTALLY FANTASTIC!

1:15pm: We stopped and got some of the leftover Thai food from last night.
We reheated one chicken satay skewer with peanut sauce and a cut up Thai BBQ chicken breast and ate that for lunch with an iced espresso to drink.
And then we took the dogs outside and now we’re back chillin’ in the Home Office.

Grateful Dead – “American Beauty” November 1970
(aka “American Reality”)

“When Push Comes to Shove”
by the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter

Shaking in the forest, what have you to fear?
Here there may be tigers, to punch you in the ear.
With gloves of stainless steel, bats carved out of bricks
Knock you down and beat you up and give your ass a kick.
When push comes to shove, you’re afraid of love.
Shaking in the desert, wherefore do you cry?
Here there may be rattlesnakes, to punch you in the eye.
With shotgun’s full of silver and bullet’s made of glass
String barbed wire at your feet, that do not let you pass.
When push comes to shove, you’re afraid of love.
When push comes to shove, when push comes to shove,
You’re afraid of love, when push comes to shove.

Jerry’s Guitar Solo and Groovy Band Jam!
Shaking in the bedroom, covers on your head,
Are you still in fear of the hand beneath the bed?
Scratching at the window, rapping at the door,
Maybe it’s mystery killer that you saw on channel four.
When push comes to shove, you’re afraid of love.

When push comes to shove, when push comes to shove,
You’re afraid of love, when push comes to shove.

Shakin’ in the garden the fear within you grows,
Still there may be roses to punch you in the nose, 
Twist their arms around you, slap you ’til you cry,
Wrap you in their sweet perfume and love you ’til I die.
When push comes to shove, you’re afraid of love.

When push comes to shove, when push comes to shove,
You’re afraid of love, when push comes to shove.

When push comes to shove, when push comes to shove,
You’re afraid of love, when push comes to shove.

Grateful Dead – “Skull and Roses” October 1971

“I don’t know, it must have been the roses,
The roses or the ribbons in her long brown hair.
I don’t know, maybe it was the roses,
All I know I could not leave her there”.

9:15pm: Recapping the day now. We took a nap and slept for a little bit.
We played with and were outside with the dogs and the dogs got their supper.
They are our Valentine every year now.
And we ordered Indian food for dinner delivery tonight.

Watching Pompsie’s Sunday night “Super-Spreader” Livestream from the Las Vegas Strip….
TOO MANY PEOPLE! NO SOCIAL DISTANCING! Mask wearing is “optional” outside….
There are a ton of people in Las Vegas during the pandemic!

They must be spending their Government money (taking a pandemic payment vacation)
THERE ARE SOME SERIOUS “LOW-ROLLERS” who aren’t there to spend any money.
We are “safer-at-home” of course and it  is making us really angry, for so many reasons.
ALL THESE PEOPLE IN LAS VEGAS and a semi-celebrity Vegas Vlogger (one of many).

We are single today on Valentine’s Day again.
We usually are. And we are very okay with it.
My ex-wife’s birthday was yesterday. Today was Valentine’s Day.
She got a Facebook birthday post again this year. That’s all.

“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.”
-William Shakespeare (Sonnet 18)

Forever and Ever, Amen (only one verse, it’s a great song)
“Oh, baby, I’m gonna love you forever
Forever and ever amen
As long as old men sit and talk about the weather

As long as old women sit and talk about old men
If you wonder how long I’ll be faithful
I’ll be happy to tell you again
I’m gonna love you forever and ever
Forever and ever, amen”
– written for Randy Travis by Don Schlitz,
who also wrote “The Gambler” for Kenny Rogers
