Boo At Her Best

Pancake’s best day was today, three days after she came to us. Her tiny ears were so cute how they wiggled when she sucked.

Zen Tracks [22] Manilow: Love Is A Many Splendored Thing

Zen Vision MLove Is A Many Splendored ThingBarry ManilowThe Greatest Songs of the Fifties
[2:42] * *

Keep your smirks under control, but yes, I do have some Manilow on my Zen Vision:M, if only to keep the eclectic readings for my Zen up sufficiently high. Besides, I can’t be too terribly nasty toward Barry when his music is powerful enough to be used by Australian officials to deter gangs of youths from congregating in a residential area late at night and when Bob Dylan himself could hug Barry saying, “Don’t stop what you’re doing, man. We’re all inspired by you.” *smirk*

Not that I find his rendition of this title track from the 1955 flick to be anywhere near as inspiring as the original, which I’d prefer to hear syncing its way over to my Zen. Which actually is about the only reason I ever listen to this version: Barry gives me a placeholder until I can get the real deal, for which it might then give up its chair.

Meanwhile, happy birthday to Barry, who today reaches pension plans’ most common normal retirement age.
