It’s unforgetaboutable say Nicki and Tim Bluhm and I weigh in with an observation at a slant in the form of a 420 character 9-line poem which also plugs portmanteaus in love and life.

In love and life: Aim for portmanteau rather than mere concatenation.

Portmanteaus are made up of different parts

which create new meanings related to each

yet expressive of what’s different about them.

I’ll use a portmanteau as demo:

“Its undoubtable, unforgetaboutable.

I bet a guernsey cow I could not live without you.

It amazes me how your sweet love stays with me.

The word is out that we will always be in love.”

PATTY

We’ve just discovered Tim and Nicki Bluhm http://www.timandnickibluhm.com   WOW!! Let’s get them at Roaring Brook, or The Infinity, or The Sounding Board

(Chorus 1)
It’s undoubtable, unforgetaboutable
I bet a barrel of oil I could not live without you
It’s astounded me how you came around to me
The word is out that we will always be in love

(Guitar Solo)

Mrs. Beck told me about you at the county fair
Said I could not find a better woman anywhere
Strong and kind and pretty, with a lovin’ mom and daddy
By God! You’d make a perfect match, she did declare

(Chorus 1)

Your furrowed brow told me the story you were hard and tough
But I kept on hangin’ round cause I was sure enough,
Once I caught that sparkle in your glance
I knew that I would have a chance
To live the love I was always dreamin’ of

(Chorus 2)
Its undoubtable, unforgetaboutable
I bet a guernsey cow I could not live without you
It amazes me how your sweet love stays with me
The word is out that we will always be in love

Whistle bridge

(Chorus 1)

Repeat:
The word is out that we will always be in love

La Coruña is an ancient city founded by Hercules,  

so the locals in this lively urban port tell me.  CIMG3694

The 180-foot Tower of Hercules is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Spain. It’s the oldest Roman/European lighthouse in the world which, since the end of the 1st century, continues to guide ships crossing the Atlantic Ocean. CIMG3696The tower stands on a rocky hillock, dominating the northern end of the peninsula in La Coruña. The story the locals like to tell is that Hercules slew the giant tyrant Geryon after three days and three nights of continuous battle. At the end of the battle, Hercules buried the giant’s head and decreed that a town be built on that spot. 

The tower endures. So does the myth.

Here I am, in my child ‘safety seat’ ~ two hooks over the back of the front bench. Basic model, 1950s version, not even a fake steering wheel or a horn. And no belt. It raised me just enough for a perfect launch through the windshield.Scan 34Toni 9/11/14remember-9-11-ribbon-1
