Are you havin' any fun?

Holiday greetings to everyone. I fully intended to post on Monday, but the day got away from me.


Last Sunday we went mountain biking on snow-covered trails. That was a first for me. Before Sunday, I had ridden on a few snow patches within a frozen dirt trail. Last year I rode up a service road in about four inches of snow. Neither of those snow experiences compared to this past Sunday.



I didn't get any photos, but one of my riding buddies Steve took photos. When he has a chance to download and post them, I'll set up a link.



Unfortunately for my riding buddies, I had a song stuck in my head. When I get a song stuck in my head I can't quit singing (poorly) the one or two lines of chorus that keep revolving into consciousness.



Although my singing could use significant improvement, I think the message from the song is good:



Are you havin' any fun?

What y'gettin' out o' livin'?

What good is what you've got

If you're not havin' any fun?




The lines come from a Tony Bennett song titled "Are you havin' any fun?" that Safeway is using on holiday commercials. Also, Tony Bennett and Elvis Costello did a duet remake in 2006 that is good.



All of this brings up the real question...what about you?



Are you havin' any fun?
