Top 5 On Friday - Week 62

Top 5 "Night" songs or albums (take your pick or do both) again...interpret this anyway you see fit. The albums don't necessarily have to have the word "night" in the title.

my list:

Night - Jackie Wilson
The Night Has A Thousand Eyes - Bobby Vee
The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia - Vicki Lawrence
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down - Joan Baez
Nightshift - Commodores

Thoughts for Today

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that, but the really great
make you feel that you, too, can become great.
Mark Twain

Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.

from Overheard in New York

this one cracked me up -

Guy #1: Did you know Bush agreed to share nuclear technology with the Indians?
Guy #2: Why do Indians need it? Oklahaoma is already a part of the US.
Guy #1: Dude, Indians as in citizens of India, a country in Asia.
Guy #2: I was never good at history.
Guy #1: You mean geography.
Guy #2: Asshole.

Cat Haiku

There's no dignity
In being sick--which is why
I don't tell you where.
~ ~ ~
The dog wags his tail,
Seeking approval. See mine?
Different message.
~ ~ ~
You must scratch me there!
Yes, above my tail! Behold,
Elevator butt.

Marianne! You have a "Overheard in New York"? I've never heard of it! I've been remiss in visiting my "Overheard in the Office" Liked your example of the New York version. And.. AND.. I get the Top 5 Friday and the Top 10 Tuesday delivered to my email every week, and never do a dang thing with them. You've inspired me!

Love all your doo-dads today. Liked the haiku about elevator butt. My cat hates me to touch her there. I don't know what it is but she acts like it's the most painful thing in her life, so we don't get much elevator butt here.

Poor thing.

Have a great weekend!
