This a tribute to the song, Old Dogs, Children. and Watermelon Wine, written and recorded by Tom T Hall.
"Ain't but three things in this world that's worth a solitary dime,
But old dogs and children and watermelon wine."
"Old dogs care about you even when you make mistakes;
God bless little children while they're still too young to hate."
He doesn't go on in the lyrics to tell you why watermelon wine is worth a solitary dime. My thoughts, since this is a southern song, We grow watermelons in the south, at least we did when I was a kid, And if it were made into a wine, well damn! That would be worth a solitary dime.
Weekend Assignment: 6/25/2017 BLUE When I think of Blue, I think of Joni Mitchell's album, Blue, that was released in 1971. That was the year I was born. This has been one of my favorite albums since the '90's. If I am 'blue', Joni can always pick me up. In her lyrics of the song Blue:
Well there're so many sinking
Now you've got to keep thinking
You can make it thru these waves
Acid, booze, and ass
Needles, guns, and grass
Lots of laughs
Lots of laughs
Everybody's saying that hell's the hippest way to go well
I don't think so, but I'm
Gonna take a look around it though Blue
I love you
Here in this recipe, I have emulated the time of the album (acid, booze, and ass). This is a Blue Lemonade with some some coolness added with Blue Ice (Acid), fizz of pink champagne( booze), and the Whipped Cream (ass, use your imagination), adds a bit of creaminess and sweetness.
