A Saturday Morning Tune

Another fine older tune – and one with which I think we can all likely identify. No other explanation or comment necessary.     Have a fine weekend, all. And be careful out there.

A Blast from the Past – Traffic Jam

Nothing special or rare about this one – except the quality of the tune. Enjoy.     Hey, you didn’t think I’d just post a classic commercial today – did ya? (smile)

I sincerely hope that none of our readers can identify with the primary vocalist in this clip regarding his apparent relationship with one of his in-laws. (smile)     Have a great weekend, everyone.
