I would, but I'm not Catholic, so I don't have a feckin' clue what sin is. Hmm

In case you missed it. Here’s a wonderful gospel song from a while back.

No Not That! :doh:Married to a Presbyterian! cryTalk about God Bucking you up! tonbricks
Thats what happened to my Father! grin
This was NOT one of those hymns I was conscripted to play at Sunday school on the Piano! I would have remembered that!

I does remind me of another tasteful joke that had it's way around RR in thread about Scotland culture, that rapidly degenerated into "Only Ewe" rolleyes



I will search the archives to ensure that the context of the thread was appropriate.

Quote
What's the difference between Mick Jagger and a Scottish Highlander?

Mick Jagger sings, "Hey you, get off of my cloud . . ",

while the Scottish Highlander yells, "Hey McCloud, get off of my ewe!
"

Queso:

I was not going to mention the following but your response has compelled me to do so. Amongst my wife’s family in Idaho I became very good friends with a cousin of hers. From time to time we would travel through extreme Southern Idaho which is very very remote Basque country in some areas. Many of them were sheepherders living in small cabins in the middle of nowhere.

As we passed Roger would utter “bah-ha-ha-hah…”

FYI…Queso (as it sounds in English) = Ándale pues más o menos. I figured the readers would know that but I’m just trying to clarify things.

Cheesh, you guys…!

I might have got religion if I had catchy hymns like that to sing.

Nope....most times. Ted Nugent comes to mind. Mel Gibson. John Travolta (he can dance! That one is hard.)No redeeming assets.

Mell, I will tell you that Nita who taught school in Aspen, FOREVER, said he got a bad rap. Out of context and all that.
I don't know.

Well Ted claimed to never take drugs grin.
It looks to me that he needed some, and still does! crazy devil, Ted has not aged well. Even cats find his lyrics offensive. mad

I’m thinking Thorazine for ol Ted.!

Hey that worked for LSD overdose back in the day. But the drug I have found most curious in my life has been Methaqualone. The proverbial Quaaludes. I remember reading a PDR in a library in the mid 70s (I am not really that old I am just making all of this up) and discovered that methaqualone was originally developed as an analgesic for malaria! Who’d of thunk it? Certainly not I. And then, upon reflection, I thought that made perfect sense that malarial sufferers could take it and then feel better and perhaps sleep and then recover from the horrible ailment.

Not so much a cure but a “curative.” Sort of like the old liver pills that were sold back in the day.

Whatever happened to the old Quaaludes? Hmm

Sheesh, I was hoping for some Ludes..if only to recollect the “good old times.”

However in all seriousness here is some music that I think, if you keep it going, it will continue on to the next songs on the CD’s. This was put together by David Grisman and Tony Rice about 20 years ago. Grisman ended up having a series of three CDs, each with a different style of music. This one was the first one in the series with duets solely with Tony Rice.

The curious thing about all of these CDs is that every single song consists of a different instrument constructed at a different time. In this CD the guitars and the mandolins begin construction in the late 1800s and go on to about the early 2000s.

I have carried on enough;
