Lemon Pipers
Green Tambourine

Interesting story with this one: My sister bought a house in Oklahoma City in 1981. It was a fixer upper and I was helping her do some work. We had an old transistor radio always playing while we were working.

A lot of trash and boxes were left from the previous owners. We opened a box we found in the closet and it was full of old 45s! What a find! We were looking at them one by one. We came to the Lemon Piper's Green Tambourine. Literally, the very second we picked that record up, that song started playing on the radio.

Bizarre, but true. It was one of those moments one will never forget.

I kept the record and kind of forgot about it. I ran across it a few years ago. I framed it and gave it back to my sister. It's now on the wall in her living room. It fits in well since they live in Nashville and her husband is a musician. She loves telling that story to any one who asks what's special about that record.

@#3 ... Word jazz--Ken Nordine ...

Word jazz, that's it. I went from memory and wrote in the summary "voice jazz" for the song I linked, "Olive."

It's a fun album nonetheless. When the album came out, the local college radio station played it quite a bit.

Thanks for the correction.

I passed up a Weber Performer Deluxe for $319 today at a Ace Hardware. It was the last one; a fully assembled floor model.

...but it was black, and I want the copper. also, it wouldn't fit in my Outback. I almost pulled the trigger though.

That's too bad. I actually moved my Performer to my parents' place "Up North". It's a real nice grill and when you do get one I'm confident you'll really llke it. If you find a store that has a good inventory you might be able to cajole them into ordering exactly what you want.

You know one of the problems with this cite is you can be having conversations about almost anything and sooner or later some ------- is going to bring up bbq's.
