I Miss Rugby …

A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water logged stick will do just fine. A dog doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he’ll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?

From me … To you …

“T’is the holiday season and we all love to share in the celebratory libations.  And, of course, we all know that means the police are out in full force patrolling and making sure we’re all safe.  Recently, I had an experience that left me re-thinking some of my past decisions.

So I was out one night with some friends for dinner and drinks.  After the first glass, the second one came, and the third all too quickly.  Soon the bottles were empty, which meant it was time to go home.  Then, I did something I normally don’t do.  I took a cab home.

Sure enough, on the way home, there was a check stop on the bridge.  The officer, seeing that a cab was approaching, simply waved me through without any question or fuss.  This was a first for me – a truly unique experience.  I had never driven a cab before.  I don’t remember how I got it.”

… and here’s to a happy and safe one for all!

Cheers!

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do
I’d never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you
I’d never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you

No I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you
With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)

What a wicked game you played to make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do to let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say you never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do to make me dream of you

And I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do
I’d never dreamed that I’d love somebody like you
I’d never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you

No I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)

No I…(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
(This girl is only gonna break your heart)
