“I need to be in love”

It’s clearly a Black Dog Day: the old beast is nigh, growling and stinking, and we’ll fend him off with Karen Carpenter—Kryptonite for black dogs. Here she is singing what she considered her favorite song, “I need to be in love“. She’s already showing signs of anorexia here, but she put her heart in every song.

    A sad song, but somehow hopeful too.

    I must ask, as you’ve referenced black dogs, posted black dog photos almost daily, Prof., are you ok?

    If not, you’ve no shortage of friends, here, in real life, all around the world, in places high and low. Give someone a call, grab a meal, or some coffee or whatever. Please take care.

    From Joyce to the Carpenters (or Car-PENT-ers as Joyce might say in his authentic Irish accent) you’re covering all the bases today.
