The weather is here, I wish you were …

Posted By on June 10, 2007

Well that actual word to finish this lyric is “beautiful,” but I either ran out of room or didn’t want to offend anyone. Nevertheless it was too nice to be pecking at the computer and instead I spent the weekend outside. I did a little (in the ‘full meaning of the word’) work in the yard yesterday and also cleaned the front porch. I realized just how much maintenance I will need to do after I finally got the dirty off the furniture, rail, brick, front door and cement. It’s going to need more than some patching and paint … yikes. (I also removed the second bird’s nest of the season)
Sailing at Saranac LakeMy son also arrived back home today from a week with his “Young Life” friends at Saranac Village and Lake. Christian camps have sure changed from my day … I don’t think he could have had a better time? It is great to hear the impact being made on ‘young lives’ by the efforts of all in involved in offering answers to our youth and sharing the relevance of Jesus Christ in modern life. I couldn’t be more impressed with the organization and encouragement they offer to my son; what a fun but impactful time. BTW … Happy Birthday Taylor.

“The Weather Is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful”
Jimmy Buffett
He worked hard all year just wanted a few weeks alone
But his old lady’s into modeling,
She can’t stay away from the phone
Besides she bitches about the mosquitoes
She says “Down there there is nothing to do”
Her goddamn phone never stops ringing
He’ll try the service in a day maybe two

Well, he’s on his third drink before the
wheels of the plane leave the ground
Making points with the stewardess
climbing over Long Island Sound
She’s also spending some time on the island
Too much city madness gives her the blues
They make a date to go dancing and dining
Seems neither has that much to lose

The weather is here I wish you were beautiful
My thoughts aren’t too clear but don’t run away
My girlfriend’s a bore, my job is too dutiful
Hell, nobody’s perfect would you like to play
I feel together today

Well now that was just the start of
a well-deserved over due binge
Meanwhile back in the city certain
people are starting to cringe
His lawyers are calling his parents
His girlfriend doesn’t know what to think
His partners are studying their options
He’s just singing and ordering drinks

The weather is here I wish you were beautiful
The skies are too clear life’s easy today
The beer is too cold, the daiquiri’s too fruitful
There’s no place like home when it’s this far away
I don’t care what they say

He’s going back to New York pack it up
and let everyone know
It was something that he should have done
such a long time ago
Still time to start a new life in the palm trees
Billy Clyde wasn’t insane
And it doesn’t work out there’ll never be any doubt
That the pleasure was worth all the pain

The weather is here I wish you were beautiful
The skies are too clear, life is easy today
The beer is too cold, the daiquiri’s too fruitful
There’s no place like home when it’s this far away
I need time for to play
Time for to play
