Last Dip

I am getting on the plane in a couple hours. To Iceland and then back to North America. I still have some pictures to post, and thoughts, but want to end in Europe on a high note. Here is my favorite video from the trip. From a health spa where my sister goes to swim with the wet Dutch dogs. Thank you to Kate and all of her friends who made my vacation so memorable. You are all welcome in Cambridge anytime.

  1. cat, i was singing the below as i pedaled the bikes back home.

    The wind is in from Africa
    Last night I couldn’t sleep
    Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here Carey
    But it’s really not my home
    My fingernails are filthy, I got beach tar on my feet
    And I miss my clean white linen and my fancy French cologne

    Oh Carey get out your cane
    And I’ll put on some silver
    Oh you’re a mean old Daddy
    But I like you fine

    Come on down to the Mermaid Cafe and I will
    Buy you a bottle of wine
    And we’ll laugh and toast to nothing and smash our empty glasses down
    Let’s have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
    A round for these friends of mine
    Let’s have another round for the bright red devil
    Who keeps me in this tourist town

    Come on Carey get out your cane
    I’ll put on some silver
    Oh you’re a mean old Daddy
    But I like you

    Maybe I’ll go to Amsterdam
    Maybe I’ll go to Rome
    And rent me a grand piano
    And put some flowers ’round my room
    But let’s not talk about fare-thee-wells now
    The night is a starry dome
    And they’re playin’ that scratchy rock and roll
    Beneath the Matala Moon

    Come on Carey get out your cane
    I’ll put on some silver
    We’ll go to the Mermaid Cafe
    Have fun tonight

    The wind is in from Africa
    Last night I couldn’t sleep
    Oh you know it sure is hard to leave here
    But it’s really not my home

    Maybe it’s been too long a time
    Since I was scramblin’ down in the street
    Now they got me used to that clean white linen
    And that fancy French cologne

    Oh Carey get out your cane
    I’ll put on my finest silver
    We’ll go to the Mermaid Cafe
    Have fun tonight
    I said, Oh, you’re a mean old Daddy but I like you
    But you’re out of sight

  2. lady a, thank god you’re coming back. i’ve missed you. truly. and it’s not just me either. the ecg has missed you. all the straight boys who’d rather hang out with you than their girlfriends….also the old people, the homeless, JAMES and his out of circulation magazines, and blah, blah, blah.

    and a big shout out to arthur’s sweet sister kate! what a diva hostess you are! are you still unconvinced of your bro’s ‘preference?’ for real?!!

    -lady c

  3. lady c,

    i am fully convinced of each and every one of lady a’s preferences: he’s a wild thing, he does what he wants. where the trail is bad he cuts a new one. take care of him out there at the ecg, and hope to see you guys when i’m back stateside mid-july.
