A pinky sunrise through the pine trees started the day off on the right foot and it just carried on from there. Well, until it clouded over later that is. Kelly headed off to Goderich for blood work and to do some browsing in her favorite stores. Pheebs and I headed off around our usual country roads listening to music, enjoying the scenery, and looking for a few photos.

Al's Music Box:(( The Warmth Of The Sun by The Beach Boys from their 1964 album, 'Shut Down Volume 2'. This song was written by Beach Boy members Brian Wilson and Mike Love. Wilson and Love began composing the song on November 22, 1963, the day of the assassination of John f. Kennedy, although the two co-authors give different accounts of the timing and whether it was begun before or after the killing. The subsequent recording of the song was informed by the emotional shock felt by its authors in the wake of Kennedy's death. , Wilson recalled that the song was written the day of the assassination, in response to it: When the shooting happened, everyone knew instantly. It was all over the TV and on every kind of news. I called Mike and he asked me if I wanted to write a song about it. I said sure. It seemed like something we had to think about, and songs were the way I thought about things. We drove over to my office and in a half hour we had "The Warmth of the Sun." We didn't think of it as a big song. It was a personal response. But it got bigger over time because of the history linked to it.
