Re: Name that tune

Good work team!. Yes, I was getting ready to post that "I hoped that you could help me Ron #-o [dah]", and some other lame hints, like "this is no fun, fun, fun", so thanks for saving me from that. Glad to save you the embarrassment of floundering around like that! ;) Searched the topic and was act...

No idea what the song was called tho.
LoL!!! That was the hint I needed as I see now that Peter is coding a message to me...

Help Me Ronda - Beach Boys

Nice one, Peter!

Re: Name that tune

Peter, sorry man, the only lyrics I know from Crystal Blue Persuasion are "Crystal Blue Persuasion"... :) Thanks, everyone, for the retirement wishes! So exciting! Paul, I'll never say never, but I'd have to fall in love with my rower for that to happen. I've had it for about 9 years, and it hasn't ...

Re: Name that tune

LoL, Peter.

Dang, I would have had that on the first clue if I hadn't been so busy being all retired and stuff. Yes, today is the "official" first day of my retirement. I turned 55 on 10/5, and the rest of my life is all mine... :D :D :D

Re: Name that tune

LoL - immense fail on my part. I see the title, and it still doesn't "ring a bell"... I'm not sure what I thought the song was called, but I like it and knew the artist. Brains are fun! :D

I guess having the group is not enough. More lyrics before I give up. Maybe somebody's brain will be jogged.

Unfortunately the full effect of his singing does not come over that well in digital form, but live he is astounding.
Nice... first one I tried was a cover, "Just the Way You Are", and I like it!

Congratulations Ron! We did not notice any "local dialect issues". In fact, it did seem a "normal conversation", at least for rappelling down a ginormous building. We were waiting for you to take those two story at a time jumps. :^o Thanks, Peter & Ann! I think the young woman up top that was doing...

Re: Something a Little Different

It was a fundraiser event. I was sitting quietly at home one day last May when I got an email from the charity organization (United Way) that I've supported for years. It immediately intrigued me, and I signed up that day. Nearly 3 months later, and the deed is done... It was quite a rush!! I do get...

Something a Little Different

I haven't been rowing much lately - super-busy at work as my upcoming retirement looms (11/1), and I"m trying to train my replacement who is trying to hire his replacement.... back to my summer mountain-biking, and a couple days a week of lifting. So, I'm not quite a slouch, but I do miss the regula...

Re: Name that tune

Next clues:

Another line (other than being from the same song, no relationship to the previous line):

Am I coming out of left field?

Also, speaking of European charting, the name of the band begins with a European country's name... :)
