Sister Golden Hair Surprise


Sometimes the awesome responsibilities of being a cub report for GNN just wears me down and I need to step back to reflect on what got me here.

Back to a time when things were easier to understand.
When the consequences did not seem so dire.
When the odor of disinfectant foot powder was not my constant companion.
Back to 1975 and the band America.



Well I tried to make it Sunday, but I got so damn depressed
That I set my sights on Monday and I got myself undressed
I ain't ready for the altar but I do agree there's times
When a woman sure can be a friend of mine

Well, I keep on thinkin' 'bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise
And I just can't live without you; can't you see it in my eyes?
I've been one poor correspondent, and I've been too, too hard to find
But it doesn't mean you ain't been on my mind

The bottom Golden Haired Beauty is the legendary Rita Hayworth in her salad days.
And this concludes my presentation of Sister Golden Hair.
Now for the surprise...


Nickie Goomba and his infamous dance audition
at the DMV offices in Scarsdale, New Jersey!

I was just getting ready to thank you, Sig, b/c "Sister Golden Hair" was playing in my brain, and then ...

Man, that Goomba can cut a rug (or is it collapse a floor)?

Nickie Goomba said...

Ironically, those were also my salad days.

Rita Hayworth and Nickie Goomba. I feel such a wide range of emotions.

This is Michelle Obama rocking out in Spain.

Seriously, all they asked him to do was read the eye chart.

WoFat said...

Rita, ahhhh, the lusts of youth.

This is really a fascinating study. The only other opportunity you will ever have to see that much meat moving all at once is during a stampede in West Texas or a Super Wal-Mart sale in Fresno.

Zio - yes, wide. "Wide" is exactly what I was thinking.

DC - The reinforced concrete floor of the DMV was fine, just a few stress cracks, but the rug was severely traumatized. It wept as it was replaced with a steel mat.

Wetzy - Fortunately Spain is far east of the major fault line that took out Atlantis. Still, traffic had to be diverted away from a few bridges.

sig94 said...

WoFat - man, you gotta change yer user id for this thread.

Nickie - the way it was explained to me, these were your salad, pasta, cheesecake, pork roast, bread pudding, pizza, hot dogs, beer, chinese take out, kielbasa, bacon triple cheeseburger, cannoli days.

Have you entered this post into the Rule 5 category? Lovely photos.

Nickie Goomba said...

I've got an even better video of me eating Thanksgiving dinner while strumming a ukelele.

LL said...

I need to see that video.

Thank you, thank you, for the wonderful memories. My daddy had a book of sheet music, 70s rock, and he would play on the piano and we would sing, and that song is so pretty, so simple, so easy to play and such a great range, we sang that one all the time. I LOVE that song.

And hey, Goomba - I have to teach you zorba!
