The Daily Teaser — 1-8-2015

You know, there’s times I loved working nights.

Then there’s times I don’t.

Either way … ?

Either way, last night was one of those where I finished at 10:30.

And boy, I ’m grateful I wasn’t finishing any later than that.

Not that it was excessively busy.   Well, not for a Friday, anyway.

But … ?

Hmmm … 

Have you ever felt that, sometimes, an evening will feel … odd?

Just have a plain old odd emotional tone?

That was how I was felling, last night.

The evening felt … odd.

Cie la vie … !

But let’s get a move on, shall we?

Dom DeLuise, August 1, 1933 – May 4, 2009.
And this song from Ramplin’ Jack Elliott …

I seem to have missed your post for yesterday... Although I'm not into Formula 1 I enjoyed the movie Rush.
I know what you mean about things feeling odd. I've had a weird day today...
