Great Lyrics

1981 at PHS

Yes… we’re kind of like “old folks”.  We sit in our offices, G and I, listening to soft music – mostly from the past.  I was just absentmindedly singing along to “This Guy’s In Love With You” a moment ago, and as it ended I got this silly grin on my face.  It’s still there.  The LOML can’t see it.  I’m tucked in behind my computer screen across the room from him… and he’s clicking away at his computer… getting his day in order.  It’s the typical early morning routine here at the barn.

With this happy memory I’ll wish him a happy birthday.

There we sat – on the sofa – at my house out in the country – a couple of teenagers.  And out of the blue he says to me, “This guy’s in love with you.”  Oh goodness!  Was he really telling me he loved me????  So I get the silly grin, trying to figure out what to say back to him… because I already knew I loved that guy with all my heart!   And then he grins, points to the sheet music on the piano just behind us, and tells me he was just reading the name of the song.  Ha!

I’ve always loved Burt Bacharach music.  And I’ve always especially loved this song!

Happy Birthday G!
