Arizona Bound

Later today Jen and I will be winging our way to Phoenix for a holiday with my bud Jenny. J and J have never met but I just know — sure as The Amazing Bob's apple pie is  the best brekkie in the entire universe —they'll be simply wild  about each other.

I know these sorts of things. Honest and true!

Meantime, here's a little Arizona themed musical interlude.

You're welcome.

Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it wouldn't last.
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
For some California grass.
The Beatles — Get Back 

 Well, I'm a standing on a corner
in Winslow, Arizona
and such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
Ford slowin' down to take a look at me
Come on, baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
gonna save me
Eagles — Take it Easy 

n early memory
Mission music
Was ringing 'round my nursery door
I said "Take this child, Lord
From Tucson Arizona
Give her the wings to fly through harmony
And she won't bother you no more."
Paul Simon — Under African Skies

By the time I get to Phoenix
She'll be rising
She'll find the note I left hanging on her door
She'll laugh, when she reads the part that says I'm leaving
Cause I've left that girl, so many times before
By the Time I Get To Phoenix — Glen Campbell
