Get Back, Honky Cat...

"I found a penny today

laying on the ground.

But it's not just a penny,

this little coin I've found.

Found pennies come from heaven,

that's what my Grandpa told me.

He said Angels toss them down.

Oh, how I loved that story.

He said when an Angel misses you,

they toss a penny down;

Sometimes just to cheer you up,

to make a smile out of your frown.

So, don't pass by that penny

when you're feeling blue.

It may be a penny from heaven

that an Angel's tossed to you."

That email came to me from my best friend today with some message saying something to the effect of,

"Thought I should send this to you. How many hundreds of dollars in change have you found lately?"


This song has run through my head over and over and over and OVER again since all the madness started in July...

The resouding phrase?

"Oh! A change is gonna do me good!"



Yep. Things have changed.

Those coins on the driveway are just proof to me.

He's here, friends.

Maybe even moreso than before.

He IS here.

He cheers.

He laughs.

He chastises.

He IS here.

Never, EVER should you doubt it.

He's calling for CHANGE!

I'm trying, ever so diligently to listen...


I am.

Then, he does something silly like locks a door on me, and I FORGET I'm supposed to be serious, and I start to laugh.

OH! A change is gonna do me good!

I got your change, brother.

Just you wait and see...

Although, I suspect you already knew that.

I've listened.

I'm ready.

We're on the move, buddy!

You ready to drink whiskey from a bottle of wine?

OH! A change is gonna do me good!


  1. Okay, now you're just starting to freak me out.

    There's a whole story here - if you go to my Blogtalk radio page take a look at what the theme of tomorrow's show is.

    Change is gonna do you good :-)

  2. Thing is change is coming whether we want it or not. It is better to embrace the change then to paddle up stream.
