women of a certain age are like sunflowers; they know how to turn their faces to the sun.

New York, New York


Start spreading the news
I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it, New York, New York
These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
And make a brand new start of it
New York, New York
I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps
To find I'm king of the hill, top of the heap
These little town blues
Are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you, New York, New York.

I'll make it anywhere

Yep. That's right. They are opening up the cage door and letting me off the sunflower farm

How you gonna keep me down on the farm after I've seen Paree Brooklyn?

I'm heading out tonight to visit my brother and his family for another long weekend and this time...

I'm not taking the laptop.

Yeah. You heard me right. I'm actually taking a real break with no Sunflower business.

(Well, I might sneak in a little visit to a yarn store - research)

Back on Monday night late. Any orders placed tonight through Monday will go out Tuesday.

Y'all have a good weekend, ya hear?

There's nothing quite like a weekend getaway incommunicada. Paint the town iris!
