⦿ Backhoe Ballet

 Somebody had a great idea !  I love this thing.. funny, yet elegant. .
.
I’ve always had an unfulfilled secret desire to operate some construction equipment... .
a backhoe, front-loader, or even just a forklift.. but especially a road-roller.
(what used to be called a steam roller)

⦿ Glenn Miller – 1940s music

Before my time but appreciated  – it’s good music !  The way I came to embrace Glenn Miller’s music was from seeing that 1954 movie on tv — The Glenn Miller Story, with Jimmy Stewart as Miller.
I actually went out to a record store the next day,  to buy a Glenn Miller album…  a surprize to myself as a young  adult rock-n-roller.  Great music lives on.
.
I really like ‘At Last’ (w/Ray Eberle),  recorded before Etta James’ version…a strange song of happiness but with a melancholy tune,   and  the harmonies of  ‘Perfidia’.

A feel-good Zydeco thing,  &  not about cannibals !

everyone has a good time !
