• What settles your nerves after a long stressful day, and an anticipated longer anxious night? I don't know about you, but for me it's some 6 hour boiled in beer slathered in sauce barbecue broiled pork short-ribs, some good American (southern) whiskey in a frozen glass (neat), sitting out back, watching the sun dip behind the mountains, and best of all cranking up some good tunes. Like this one, right here. Might not be such a bad night, after all...

    THE CATFISH SONG

    Down at the bottom of that dirty ol' river
    Down where the reeds and the catfish play
    There lies a dream as soft as the water
    There lies a bluebird that's flown away

    Well, to meet is like Springtime
    And to love is like the Summer
    Her brown eyes shone only to me
    Then Autumn fever, the fool come a fallin'
    Rain turned to freezin' inside of me

    I'll kindle my fires with the words
    I can't send you
    And the roads I can't follow
    And the songs I can't sing

    Well, all you ladies
    That dream of tomorrow
    While you're a listenin'
    These words I will say
    Cling to today with its joy
    And its sorrow
    You'll need your memories
    When your youth fades away

    Well, the angel of Springtime
    He rides down the Southwind
    The angel of Summer
    He does just the same
    The angel of Autumn
    She's blue and she's golden
    And the angel of Winter
    Won't remember your name

    Down at the bottom of that dirty ol’ river
    Down where the reeds and the catfish play
    There lies a dream as soft as the water
    There lies a bluebird that’s flown away

    There lies a bluebird
    It’s flown away



  • @Sassygirl Yaaaaaaasssss. :smile:


  • @Lazz catfish, lol. :laughing:

    when i hear music like this, i definitely think about a nice, cold beverage with some yummy grilled meat...with a circle of friends chillin' outside. <3


  • @Rei_90 :thinking: . o O ( Catfish?! ) Nudge, nudge, wink, wink

  • Banned

    @Lazz The South makes lots of fine things. BBQ liquor all good stuff. But beautiful song


  • @Lazz you know, i'm going to whip up some catfish today. I love catfish! 😍 Not catfishers lol


  • @Rei_90 Sure, sure. Everything you share looks SO Good, but just seeing the pics is enough to get me (and, I'm sure many others, here) HUNGRY!! :heart_eyes:

    And, I agree, catfishers are NOT good at all. Nope, nope :fish:


  • Ive caught and ate catfish plenty of times. I just hope our definitions of "catfish" are the same.


  • @chewie Maybe so, but probably not :thinking:

    The main difference is: You catch one, the other catches YOU


  • @Lazz LMAO indeed one is the victim the other a masked villian


  • @chewie The mask is the real clue, innit? :winking_face:


  • i did catfish once. i sent a girl a pic of my younger brother. needless to say it didnt work out. Ive learned that transparency is the key to any relationship


  • @chewie That's a good lesson. Me, I've only been on the other side. As dumb as a catfish :fish: to nibble on a fisher's cast line, even though I could see the hook. Come to think of it, saw the mask, too. :face_palm: LOL Live and learn, right?


  • @Lazz "The Greatest Teacher Failure Is." Yoda


  • @chewie LOL Good point. :grin:


  • The lesson took a paradigm shift within my own mind. Selfishness and Pride were the true enemies.


  • @chewie That's a thoughtful and intuitive progression. Good going, connecting those dots. :clap:

    I'm still right about here: “You will never understand the meaning of actual reality.” Which is why the quote is now on my profile :thinking:


  • well reality is the only place to get a decent meal


  • @chewie And we circle back to Rei's planned catfish. :grin:

    @Lazz you know, i'm going to whip up some catfish today. I love catfish! 😍 Not catfishers lol
