187/365 Carolina in the Pines

She came to me said she knew me
Said she’d known me a long time
And she spoke of being in love
With every mountain she had climbed
And she talked of trails she’d walked up
Far above the timberline

This week, this Michael Murphey song came into my head, completely unbidden. I don’t think I’d thought of it in 20 years. Must be because I’m going to Northbrook on Saturday—my one true week off this year.

Bluegrass bands like to cover this one. Here it is by the Saltgrass Band.

There's a Northbrook an hour North of here. People come from all around to park at the dump and watch the bears.

The older I get, the more I appreciate bluegrass. Do you know Sarah Harmer? I think she tweaked the bluegrass-appreciation nub of my cortex. Here she is covering a Dolly Parton song.

Hang on - here's Feist covering a Sarah Harmer tune.

Michael Murphy--my mom and dad had his stuff. I didn't realize anyone else knew it, actually.

Are there any bears at your Northbrook Indigo?

And where's your new picture mm?

Mrs Slocombe said...

eeh what I meant to say was I can't stand her she's got tickets on herself that one. I'll give her bloody bucket

All right, now I'm lost in the conversation.

MM, I think you blogged about Harmer back in the days.

I have never seen a bear at Northbrook, but I'm told they exist. Certainly not like they do in New Jersey, of course...

My dear Mrs. Slocombe you simply must come to one of my famous candlelit dinners.

I'll use the good china.

mm, I think you should pop over to Grace Bros , to the old boots and panties department for any further banter: Bring that hunk o' spunk Onslow with you.

Indigo: if you google 'Are You being served' and 'Keeping up Appearances', all will be revealed.....

Ah yes, I have seen a little of each of these, but quite a long time ago, and not enough, obviously.
