Stay in a Line


For years I thought the Bee Gees were singing "Stay in a Line" and thought it was a silly concept for a song. It was really "Staying Alive." These horses are doing a good job staying in a line, and better behaved than some of my mother's meal mates.

Yesterday we went to the dump in Ridgway. We're quite chummy with the lady who runs it. The white truck in front of us had a bumper sticker that said "I want my country back." I wasn't sure if it was talking about race or music, but Jon thought it was race.

We asked our friend what the sticker meant when it was our turn to show her the trash we brought. She said, "Oh, that poor family. Their daughter killed her husband and is serving 50 years in jail. So they have two teenage kids to raise, just when they thought they were going to tour the country. He's a retired chef. They just moved here." woah.... and woes...

We drove on to Ouray (rhymes with hooray, you-ray) past the field of yaks. I'm still determined to get a picture of them but there's no turn off on the skinny road. We went to the little farmers' market there and got peaches, melon, and a loaf of bread with whole baked garlic cloves inside.

Incredibly delicious. I also bought a small goat cheese rolled in thyme and lavender. I sampled it first. I couldn't wait to get home and eat it smeared on that garlic bread. But strangely, when we got home, it was nowhere to be found. I felt so badly, sure I'd dropped it in the street getting in the car. But when Molly had to go outside at 4 am I think I solved the mystery: CHEESE DOG ATE GOAT CHEESE!

I love Molly.

Bread with garlic in it sounds delicious.

The "I want my country back!" crowd puzzles me. What do they consider "their country?" When did they discover it went missing?

Stay in a Line--I can relate to that. Even still, I think Michael Jackson was singing "The CHAIR is not my son."

Stay in a Line--I can relate to that. I still wonder if Michael Jackson was not really saying "The CHAIR is not my son." Always sounds like that to me.

Great. Now I've been singing "The CHAIR is not my son" all morning.

Sally said...

What song is "The CHAIR is not my son" supposed to be?

Linda said...

"Billie Jean" from Michael Jackson's Thriller.

so out of it I still don't know the original lyric!

I was even worse with Billie Jean, mistaking "the kid is not my son" for "the chance to light my fire" when I first heard it.

Ha.

There's a bathroom on the right.

I want whole garlic cloves in bread!

wish I could send you all a slice of this garlic bread. we're headed back to Ouray on Thursday for another loaf.
