LED ZEPPELIN - Your Time is Gonna Come

It is my 3rd week on vacation in Thailand with Shell Hunter and London Scouser. I am a big fan of the place and have been probably about 10 times over the past 30 years. When I worked in Saudi Arabia during the eighties we used to go quite often go for a spot of R&R. In these days I could write my own tickets with Saudia Arabian Airlines. 'These were the Days my friend'. And as Mary Hopkins said.. 'I wish I stayed in the fookin' valleys!'

I first heard Led Zeppelin on an Atlantic Sampler  from 1970,  what a brilliant album that was, check it out.

Your time is Gonna Come is from their first album and has always been a favourites of mine. The second track from Houses of the Holy and is a nice little bit of Reggae-ish. Not their finest hour, but what the 'ell I'm on holiday and  I like it.

 
LED ZEPPLIN - D'Yer Ma'ker 

FOOTNOTE:

On Holiday, On Holiday My arse! see previous Posts. 

Never mind it has not been all bad, the weather has been in the twenties with blue skies.  We had a nice meal by the sea last week. I should have not had that third brandy, I should not have stopped of at that new bar on the way home! I should not have gone to Pat's Bar!

Waking up the next morning was one of 'those',  Oh God! what happened, did I upset Old Ma, did I kill anybody, how did I get home?.

I can't take my drink anymore. Normally I do not drink much these days but when I do get the opportunity I tend to go for it. I really should know better. I did find a Pop Corn wrapper, so I must have given a large bowl a hammering as there was little evidence left apart from a few kernels that did not pop. But I don't like Pop Corn!

I had the hungers all bloody day and still felt a bit off the day after. So the moral of the story is, if you can't handle your Pop Corn, then stay out of Pat's Bar! 

A final Footnote next week

I love that: "But I don't like Pop Corn" :-)

At least if a pop corn wrapper and few kernels is the only evidence of your drunken night out, you can't have done anything tooooo bad...

Brilliant. I've done some funny things after a drink or two, but I'm not sure that I've ever been that drunk that I've eaten something I don't actually like! You should try popcorn again when you're sober - you might have developed a taste for it!

Take it easy, OP! can't take the booze myself these days, either. Funny how that happens. I know if I have two I'll have three and then it's anybody's guess. Yep, done some crazy things but I hope those days are over. Who the hell likes pop corn, anyway? Great choices even if 'D'Yer Ma'ker' does walk a very close line to 'so bad it's good'.
