    What you said about sometimes not caring what is over the next hill reminded me of a great old 1950s Patti Page song, I've always loved the lyrics...remember this one?

    Detour
    Patti Page
    Written by Paul Westmoreland

    Peaked at # 5 in 1951
    Pop cover version of Spade Cooley's 1946 Top 5 Country hit. Considered by some experts to be one of the transitional songs from Pop to Rock & Roll.


    Detour, there's a muddy road ahead, detour
    Paid no mind to what it said
    Detour, oh these bitter things I find,
    Should have read
    That detour sign

    Headed down life's crooked road, lots of things I never knowed
    Because of me not knowin', I now pine
    Trouble got in the trail, spent the next 5 years in jail
    Should have read (should have read) that detour sign

    Detour, there's a muddy road ahead, detour
    Paid no mind to what it said
    Detour, oh these bitter things I find,
    Should have read
    That detour sign

    When I got right to the place where it said "About Face"
    I thought that all my worries were behind
    But the farther I go, more sorrow I know
    Should have read (should have read)
    That detour sign

    Detour, there's a muddy road ahead, detour
    Paid no mind to what it said
    Detour, oh these bitter things I find,

    When I got stuck in the mud all my hopes dropped with a thud
    I guess that my heart strings are made of twine
    Have no willpower to get from the hole that I'm in yet

    Speedy, Let's call ourselves "vintage" it sounds so much more positive.

    Thank you, Laura. Vintage makes me feel a lot better. I was thinking of describing myself as chronologically challenged, but I feel vintage fits me better. Thanks for the help.......Speedy

    Read that Joe Mayer operated a restaurant in Tip Top in the early 1880's before he established present day Mayer, Arizona.

    Prom date? I thought back then they still had "arranged" marriages when you turned 14?

    Uh Huh you're right Gary, but when they arranged a marriage between me and Moses, he took one look and ran off into the hills of Egypt hollering...."LET ME GO!" or something like that, I might be paraphrasing. Methusela was a second choice 'cause his eyesight wasn't so good.
