These times they are a-changin'..........

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers

Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

I'm pretty sure when Bob Dylan wrote this song 49 years ago even he didn't realize the catastrophic changes that we were in store for........................when he wrote this song even the cell phone hadn't been invented, that would come 9 years later so you have to think........what's in store for us in another 50 years? Yikes! What a scary thought.......myself  "what goes around comes around" is a huge part of life. But fortunately here in Sleepyville......things tend to stay the same for quite sometime, and there are people who will make darn sure it stays in the 60's! It's quite funny actually, maybe they didn't here Bob's song or its just their way of protesting......I don't know but it makes me laugh!

So how has your week been? Hard to believe that Friday is upon us already and for some the weekend has already begun......I am doing just great! I can see like I have never been able to see, although reading and doing anything on the computer or hand work is a bit of a challenge.....but I am getting there, patience is key.......and well.......I'm working on it! I am looking forward to running this weekend, I finally finished painting the outside of the house on Wednesday, since it had been dry for over a week and warm it was perfect timing as the monsoons started on Thursday afternoon. Timing is everything!

So when the sun returns the Hubs will get back out making garden boxes, we had two, but I want a few more so there will be 6 in total and then we can grow many things.....days of living in the country spoils you and with this yard space the more we can take away grass and put in boxes for vegetables, I'm all for it.......honestly taking an hour just to mow the front yard is not my idea of retiring and downsizing!

The week is over and now to move on to the weekend. I am working and busy helping get the store ready for the ta-da next week. So exciting! Well hope you had a great week and even greater weekend. Thinking of you all, and so glad my friends are home from their holidays and others are enjoying their time away. Ta-Ta!
