Ruminations and recipes from a small kitchen in a big city.


Song of the month.

It was recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis, the Spinners, Lulu, Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson (who wrote it), the Supremes, Billy Joe Nelson, Al Green, Dorothy Moore and many others; but no version could touch this version, recorded by eighteen-year-old Jimmy Elledge - his first and arguably only big hit.

Well hello there
My, it's been a long, long time
How am I doing?
O I guess I'm doin' fine
It's been so long now
And it seems that it was only yesterday
Ain't it funny
How time slips away

Another one for the turntable.

Willie Nelson is amazing isn't he.
I bought his Stardust album - vinyl -years ago and still play it every now and then
