HELP! MacArthur's Park Is Melting In The Dark

Getting ready to ride, and I can't get it out of my head!!!

All that sweet cream icing flowing down...

I don't think that I can take it,
'Cause it took so long to bake it,
And I'll never have that recipe again!

Oh No!

So, who left that cake out in the rain?

I pulled the arm warmers out for this morning's ride. It was in the high 50's at the start.

Damp 50 something here this AM put a base layer under my jersey and wondered why I didn't grab arm warmers, what the heck it will warm up after reakfast and Yoga class right? Wroooooong, went for a quick 20 miles after Yoga and my arms stayed cold the whole ride. Oh well the forcast says 60 ish mornings all week w/thunderstorms so I'm going to have to break out a windbreaker or the rain gear anyway. Its tough to believe its still August.

That's one of my favorite Jimmy Webb songs. At age 61, he could join our 50+ group.



Wikipedia Trivia: "Jimmy Webb was the original owner of a Shelby 427 Cobra equipped with twin Paxton superchargers, of which only 2 were ever built. This car sold at the 2007 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction for a record $5.5 million."

It is still way hot and humid here, and next week will resemble (but not be quite as bad) as last week.

Okay, one thing you might try is thinking of another song you know and love. My usual recommendation for this circumstance is Herman's Hermits doing "Henry the Eighth". If that one does not replace MacArthur's Park, let me know and I'll try to come up with something else. Maybe "Achey Breakey Heart" or something nice like that.

DG, I used to live near McArthur Park. I never saw it melting. Of course I never hung around the section they called "Pill Hill" either.

Someone left the cake out in the rain?!?!? Someone should have tossed the record under a bus!!

Thanks, now I have to play David Bowie's "I'm Deranged" to clear my mind.

Just don't bring up "Lovin' You", by Minnie Ripperton,,,,,
