Don’t say I never did nothing for you.
You never did anything for me.
Actually s/b “You never did nothing for me.” The double negative changes everything.
Thanks for making me smile.
John: You never did something for me.
Until it is determined what that “something” is (since it is obvious that you can’t do everything for me), I shan’t hold it against you. Pax.
hugh57 @2: Did our host specifically ask that you/we never say that?
Why, yes — yes he did. (Changing the pronouns to reflect the one’s pov does not excuse one.)
BTW: it’s money that changes everything — ask Cyndi Lauper if you’re in doubt. Double negatives just make it harder for the target of blackmail to get off the hook. ;^)
You may have made the sunset but the Candyman can take the sunrise and sprinkle it with dew. Top that.
But here’s the more serious question for the weekend – what is the point of personal photography when there are resources like http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=sunset ?
And when you add geo-location tagging?
thank you for a lovely sunset, John.
Atlanta hasn’t seen a sunset in a couple of weeks now, weather seems to be stuck in monsoon mode at the moment. Next round should be here about midnight.
I’ve done everything for you–you’ve done nothing for me–I’ve done everything for you. . .

I agree, for example:
and there ain’t never gonna be no one like you neither.
That just doesn’t look right without a squirrel in the foreground.
I’m sure my sunst would have looked like this if I hadn’t been taking a nap- there were three or four fires along the freeway today. Sigh.
Those clouds look swimmable.
Did you nuke Cleveland? You did, didn’t you?
Sigh. Cleveland is the OTHER direction. He nuked Indianapolis. Didn’t you John?
“Don’t say I ain’t never did nothing for you.”
Whoops — meant “Don’t never say I ain’t never did nothing for you.”
Upside down, it looks like California burning. Didn’t The Mamas & the Papas write a song about it?
Damn, those fires in CA are far-reaching.
