I don't know about everybody else but just like I often see little things that remind me of the Eagles, I often see things that remind me of my fellow Borderers.

First, everytime go into a gas station or stop by Sonic, the big 44oz drinks always reminds me of Lou. When she was here in Oklahoma a few months ago, she couldn't believe how big our drinks can be here in the states. From what I understand, our size medium drinks here in the states is like a large in England.

I was driving to a town in northern Oklahoma recently and saw a sign for Wichita reminding me of Mike.

Recently I saw a mention of the Sweet on TV. I immediately thought, "Oh, the band Willie loves so much!"

Thank you Soda.

And like I said a few days ago, everytime I hear a Bruce song, I think of Eva and same with Mac, it's always Soda.

LOL about the 44oz drinks, Jess! Ah, good times.

I was listening to Cat Stevens the other day & I thought about Cathy and how she drools over young Cat! I also saw the initials GA at work today, which reminded me of Lisa.

Oh, and I went past a pub the other day, named the King Rufus, which reminded me of Willie's new pup.

When I was at the Hard Rock Orlando, I went to the restroom and had to walk past the Fleetwood Mac and Led Zepplin tributes. I thought of Nancy and Willie. I studied the items for a while thinking, I wish I had my camera so I could share this w/the girls... Also, saw some Pink Floyd and Hendrix items and thought of Mike. Hard to be in a place of music and not think about the Borderers.

Strange that this topic shows up the day after I had this same thing happen...thinking of one of you Borderers spontaneously:

When something I hear sticks in my head, it is inevitable that I pick up a guitar and see if I can pick it out. Usually it is my Epiphone Sheraton II. I was working on the vocal mimic of Robert Plant in Blackdog and needed to bend a note up two frets to get a "slur" that sounded somewhat like the part Plant sings. That bend can be heard at the end of the clip in my Sig below.

When I made that bend, I thought of Ticky and "Eff chords". So much easier on a long scale electric guitar's neck.

Oh, saw "Saving Grace" last night and Jess popped into mind!

We've got quite a diversified group of Music Fans here!

That's the truth, Mike!

And I must say I am delighted to know that I have the honor of being associated with Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks 'round here!

*G* Thanks Mike.. I think I found a form of the F chord that works for me but I do avoid those durned barr chords like the plague. I need beefy strong fingers and hands like Joes... *G* (Pause for a moment of appreciation of Joe's hands...) WHEW...

I gotta tell ya'll, there are so many times during the day Im reminded of someone here and I often refer to people I've met here during my daily conversations with others, it's hard to pinpoint just one or two, but Im keeping my eyes and ears open *G*

I especially have to do that: (I have this friend <LOL>). I mean, Verna has no objections to my infatuation with Eagles or even the Wilsons, but I sort of have to be careful about mentioning any of you guys to her <LOL>. Not really. She knows that 99% of Eagles fans are Women....the few Guys who will admit it openly are usually fixated on Joe Walsh. Stands to reason that I'd be on an Eagles board mostly consisting of the stronger sex.

And that's okay. I have nothing to fear but Fear itself...so far.

Right. It is set in Oklahoma. "Grace" is a real "character". I've only watched it a couple of times. She is on the Police Force but is somewhat of a delinquent herself. She has this angel named "Earl" who is trying to get her to help with someone....but it really isn't about Angels <LOL>

I tend to say 'A friend of mine in the States......' or 'A Friend....in the UK'. As many people here have friends in the USA and in the UK it just rolls off. The fun starts when I say 'A friend of mine in "South Africa" or "Australia" or "Canada"' Then the eyes start to open just a little wider.....

Well - can't really argue with that, Molly. I know my mama taught me that I'm supposed to share, but good grief ... However, I gotta say that's just funny because I think of you whenever I hear someone say "pass the sugar". Must be that 'great minds think alike' thing! :wink:

I gotta tell you I was reminded a lot this weekend of all of you here. Several times this weekend, something would happen and I would think I can't wait to tell the other Borderers (and yes I do have OTHER friends :hilarious:-but they just don't understand like you guys).

1.) Saturday while I was doing all my driving--the whole Ipod thing (see the thread Ipod sequence). I wondered how many of you have had that same thing happen to you.

2.) Yesterday morning when Larry came in and quizzed me about The Long Run's 30th anniversary (see TLR anniversary thread for that story).

3.) Went to a record show yesterday and as I've said here before and many of you know, most of the vendors all know me by now. I hadn't been in the door a minute and the guy sat up next to the door says "there's my Eagles girl--haven't seen you at the last few shows have I?" We had missed a couple of shows this summer and he wasn't at last months. Another vendor saw me coming and pulled out a Don Felder album to show me and yet another vendor couldn't wait to show me several Poco albums that he had found knowing that I am also collecting anything Eagle related. I also had a big discussion with a vendor about it being the Long Run's anniversary and we discussed the album quite awhile, me pointing out things I had read right here on the Border about it (thanks Soda & FP!) all the while thinking--wait till I tell the other Borderers! Larry just shook his head and walked away! :)

4.) That silly dream this morning (see Dream thread) and the fact that I couldn't wait to get on here this morning and tell all of you about it.

Now I ask, is this normal or is it just the fact that I just need to get some hobbies other than this board? :hilarious:

Coronation Street is on (a British soap) and one of the characters just said "Sometimes, Bruce Springsteen is better in the bath."

I went out with some friends to a new bar that opened recently. The owner has autographed guitars by a lot of different artists. He has them displayed in built-in windows all throughout the bar and as I was checking them out I noticed one that was signed by Stevie Nicks. I thought of Soda when I saw it and had to take a picture. It's fairly dim in the bar and my camera phone kinda sucks so the pics didn't turn out all that great but I thought i'd post them anyway.

There are a bunch of signed guitars in that bar. The ones that I remember (besides Stevie and George Thorogood) are ZZ Top, Hank Williams Jr., Kansas, REO Speedwagon, Evanescence, and Korn. There are several Country artists and bands but I can't remember who right now. I'll try to remember to take a proper look next time I go back.

Aww-the American version--Steve Priest (the original bassist) Sweet. There is this Sweet and Andy Scott's (original guitarist) Sweet in Europe.

Did that someone happen to say whether they liked them or not? From what I've been hearing, they do a pretty darn good job. Especially Joe Retta, the lead singer, who isn't to rough on the eyes either!!!

I was a little hesitant to use it as an avie because Sugar looks a bit stern, but oh my gosh, he is so freaking sexy even when pissed off that I couldn't resist - especially with the 30th anniversary of the "Long Night at Wrong Beach" coming up in a couple days.

Back to the topic, I was reminded of several Borderers today as I finished up Philiippa Gregory's The White Queen - all our Border Brits! England's War of the Roses is a fascinating topic.

Thought about ALL of you this morning. Went out to breakfast with a bunch of friends and family and got on the subject of music and the internet. My SIL doesn't understand the whole internet thing. Told her I'm very thankful for it and the cyber friends I've made who understand my music/Eagles addiction.

Willie, thanks for thinking of me when you heard the Wilco mention! I do hope you can go see them sometime-they are awesome!:thumbsup:

Coincidentally, I am going to see their lead singer, Jeff Tweedy, this coming Saturday night, Aug.21! He is doing a solo acoustic concert at the Philadelphia Folk Fest. I'm very excited about this, as I have always wanted to see him solo! It's an outdoor fest, so I am praying that the weather is good. :pray: I'll let all of you know how it goes!

I was channel surfing last night and stopped on the National Geographic channel because they were doing a special on the Grand Canyon Skywalk. I immediately thought of Lou and the Road Trip. After we left Vegas we found a road supposedly leading to the Skywalk so we decided to go on a little detour. We ended up in a place I like to refer to as "The Hills Have Eyes." It was, in a word, CREEPY. The sun was starting to go down and we were on a dirt road surrounded by cacti with no cell service not knowing exactly where we were. After I got in the driver's seat and turned us back around to where we came from (ahem, civilization) we stopped and asked someone how far away the Skywalk was and we found out that when we turned around we were only about 2 miles away.

I don't know how many of you have seen the movie The Hills Have Eyes but it was a very creepy movie and where we were totally reminded me of that movie. In this pic somewhere behind those mountains (with eyes) is the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

It's football season here in the U.S. and my Oklahoma Sooners were playing Florida State on Sept. 11th and after a big play by the defense the announcers commented that one of the OU players that was apart of that particular play is originally from the U.K. They said he moved from the U.K. to Texas during junior high school and started playing American football in the 8th grade. This of course reminded me of Lou and the rest of our U.K. Borderers.

Btw, OU beat Florida St. 47-17!! GO SOONERS!!

Hubby and I went to TGIFriday's the other night for dinner. The last time I was there was the day Nancy, my daughter and I were coming back from Cincinnati after seeing the Eagles the night before. I even had the same thing I had that day....the most unhealthy cheeseburger ever!! :thumbsup:

I was working at the library today, when someone returned a DVD on "The Band". Of course, I thought of Lou immediately, and wondered if she had seen this DVD. It's the first time I had seen it come through the library.
Last night I thought of all of you. Hubby and I were driving around and we passed a billboard advertising an eyeglass place called "Simon Eyes". Hubby immediately started singing "You can't hide, those Simon Eyes". (of course to the tune of "Lyin' Eyes"-:hilarious:) I had to chuckle, and I told him I would tell everyone on the board he did that!:)

On a similar "family" note...
The other day, I returned home to find my 14-yr-old son doing his homework in the living room, with his laptop tuned into "Already Gone." (I have to admit that he rarely seems to listen to any music while he's studying, or if he is, it's usually someone more "current.") He looked up at me sweetly and said, "Aren't the Eagles great?" Yeah, like preachin' to the choir, son!:thumbsup:

Lol EV! Like mother, like son!

Wednesday night we had our monthly girl's night out, where the ladies I currently work with and some that I used to work with get together for dinner. Two of the ladies were my friend Ann, originally from Dublin, and Alexsa, one of my coworkers who just returned to work after having a baby. She brought the baby with her, and as we were eating the baby laid in his seat, drooling and sucking on his pacifier. Ann looked at him and said, "Oh look, he's got his soother, but he needs a dribbler!" Translated, he's got his pacifier, but he needs a bib! Of course I thought of GA/Lisa!

When Lou was here in the States earlier this year she introduced me to a singer that I had never heard of before, Paolo Nutini. I ended up really enjoying his music and even downloaded several of his songs from Itunes. I'm not sure how popular he is here in the U.S. but I don't recall hearing his songs on the radio. I was really surprised (and delighted) when I heard his song Last Request being played at work. I was immediately reminded of Lou since she's the one that introduced me to his songs. Already I've heard Last Request played at work twice this week.

Yep - first time! The first Dire Straits song I remember hearing was "Money For Nothing" when I was 13...

Liked it on first listen - and I think I will like it more as I get more familiar with it. It has some great lyrics ("kiss you through the bars of a rhyme" in particular ). There's nothing "overdone" about it either.

I can see how it could become your favourite song.

Brothers In Arms is one of my faves, too.

All I know is that I of course knew Dire Straits big hits but can honestly say that if it hadn't been for "meeting" Julie here, I wouldn't have bought all their albums at the last album show I attended to give them a listen to.

Okay, I've been trying to figure it out... but there are several lines that could work so you're gonna have to tell us FP!

Can I step in here? The line I'm thinking of is "Julie, I'd do the stars with you anytime." Pretty self-explanatory! ;) I'm sure FP has a signature featuring that lyric.

Okay, I've been trying to figure it out... but there are several lines that could work so you're gonna have to tell us FP!

I'd like to know what you think the other lines are, given that I worship the entire song.

'Julie, I'd do the stars with you any time': The point is that the song is a vernacular version of Shakespeare, if you like, and Shakespeare was IMO the greatest man who ever lived, so this song is just a perfect tribute. (It also references the adaptation of the play in West Side Story in the lines 'there's a place for us/you know the movie song'). But I love it that for a second he stops calling her Juliet & gets all 'intimate' with her to tell her how much he loves her. I also think it's a beautiful image and coming straight after the 'all I do is kiss you/through the bars of a rhyme' which EK said she liked, it's even better. But because he's singing my name, which is not a name heard in songs very often, and because my mother wanted to call me Juliet but my father preferred Julie, it has extra resonance.

'You and me babe, how about it' isn't 'what light through yonder window breaks.... it is the east and Juliet is the sun' but it will do.

EaglesKiwi
07-08-2011, 06:47 AM
I love Shakespeare too :)

Okay, the other lyrics: well, "You and me babe, how about it" was one of them...

also...

I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real

I love you like the stars above, I'll love you 'til I die

I can't do everything, but I'll do anything for you

And I did have "I'd do the stars with you anytime" - but I hadn't picked up the change from Juliet to Julie (have been listening while driving), but that's certainly a melting moment!

I still love the idea of a song as a kiss too. Rather a lot. :inlove:

Useless fact for you but my Great, Great, Great Grandmother was a Shakespeare. Mary Shakespeare born in Henley in Arden C1793. Got to be some family connection there. :shrug: Although there are lots of Shakespeares in H-I-A around that time making a bit like being a Smith or Brown. Hard to track back without getting lost.

Hubby and I spent a couple of days this week at Monroe Lake in Indiana, just outside Bloomington. Of course I thought of TBF and her son Dillon who is going to college there. In fact, we drove right through campus on Wednesday. Lots of students were walking. I found myself looking at any guy with a beard!

:hilarious: Very cool but there's about 45,000 students on that campus so finding him could of been difficult. Beautiful campus, isn't it? I was just telling him on the phone the other night, he needs to send me a recent picture because I'm sure his beard is getting very long again.

I saw a booth with hand decorated gourds and they reminded me of Ticky and her beautiful gourds. They had lots of them and some were very expensive. I saw one for $360.00! :shock: I think $20.00 was the cheapest. I should have taken a picture, but didn't think about it till just now! :rolleyes:

Brooke! How cool!! I had some guy offer me $250 for my best two gourds a few weeks ago, but Im saving them and a couple of others I've just finished for the gallery. It's so great to see gourd art spreading like this. It's kind of an obscure art form, but it seems to be gaining in popularity. I seem to have lost my cell phone (my usual way of taking pictures and recording my newest works) but as soon as I get some real pictures of my latest work, I'll post them. Thanks for the thought *G*
