Vol XXIV- #1 – All Good Things Come to an End

Report #7082 Photo: LR-1-6-24

 

But all beginnings start with an end, right? If you haven’t been paying attention, the Blue Bird in Leland is being razed. A sad day, but Skip Telgard promises something will return in its place. We got a bit of snow and just in time as I just put new tires on my Jeep yesterday. Happy new year from our family to yours.

“Closing Time” by Semisonic
Closing time, open all the doors
And let you out into the world
Closing time, turn all of the lights on
Over every boy and every girl
 
Closing time, one last call for alcohol
So, finish your whiskey or beer
Closing time, you don’t have to go home
But you can’t stay here
 
I know who I want to take me home
I know who I want to take me home
I know who I want to take me home
Take me home
 
Closing time, time for you to go out
To the places you will be from
Closing time, this room won’t be open
Till your brothers or your sisters come
 
So, gather up your jackets, move it to the exits
I hope you have found a friend
Closing time, every new beginning
Comes from some other beginning’s end, yeah
 
I know who I want to take me home
I know who I want to take me home
I know who I want to take me home
Take me home
 
Closing time, time for you to go out
To the places you will be from
 
I know who I want to take me home
I know who I want to take me home
I know who I want to take me home
Take me home

Great to see an update. Stay safe & warm. It will be interesting what will replace the Bluebird.
