Thank you so much, Bert. Great sound, great song. Gerry Goffin / Carole King...famous Brill Building in NYC team(s)...AND...it sounds just like a song by Arthur Alexander the incredible singer, "You Better Move ON" on Dot Records recorded at the FAME Studios in famous Muscle Shoals, Alabama for that unique sound out of that nondescript, but unique building. A great, great, pop-bluesy sound / song /number,....Don & Phil are superb, of course, with this "sound, rhythm, song" covered by The Beatles, Bobby Vee, The Hollies and The Rolling Stones. These 6 performers are the tops! Thanks again, for all that you post and educate us with. Overcast and humid here in Philadelphia in August (what else is new!), but, I'm sure you have blue skies and white clouds. Be well.

I know we are spoiled here in the Caribbean with sunshine, blue skies, white clouds and a breeze. Today it is about 90F or 32C and I just finished my daily walk through cactusland and along some "lakes" that will be dry in a week or so.

Can you swim in the lakes Bert? Or do you swim in the sea, or neither?

Only in the sea Chris, water is cristal clear and around 25C-77F and that's perfect to got out and do some snorkeling. Most "lakes" are not deep enough, normally the flamingo's are there and you're not allowed to swim or be on the water with boats etc. We have to leave them alone and avoid a close encounter.

Aww.w.w, Man, Bert!! Thanks for nothin! Ya' had to go and post that pix, huh?! (just kidding). Gorgeous! Blue skies, white clouds, warm temps, calm, serene....dang! Here I am in permanently gray dumpy Philadelphia suburbs with high humidity. You walk for two blocks and you're wet. Good for you and yours. you deserve it.

Best to you, always, Craig

What an idyllic life you live Bert. I love to swim in the sea too.
I'm jealous too Craig, The humidity and stickiness this afternoon was bad. I was wilting at work.

I can't swim, so I jump over, into, and under the 'surf' waves at Ocean City, NJ, so you kind of, sort of, can't swim in the waves, just play around, but if there are under-toe currents, I get out quickly. Had a real, fast, almost deadly experience once that had it not been for a large, powerful wave that crashed me back to shore, I was being sucked under and away very fast. Dang ocean is powerful. Thank goodness the life-guard was looking at me. Forget it. I'll stay in knee-deep with the kiddies and their rubber-ducky life-preserves as their parents hold them. Some like the water, some don't. They mainly build sand castles up on the beach. I wrap myself in a blanket on a beach chair under an umbrella and eat a cheeseburger and a vanilla milk shake and hope the fighter-bomber-seagulls don't attack. If you drop some food, or turn your head, bam!...it's swooped up and gone. These are the tough, muggar seagulls from South Philly, i think. They carry knives and blackjacks!
That's odd, Chris. Britain has been having atypical weather....yes? Sounds like a bit of a heat wave and...humidity ?? plus, you've had more snow storms than usual in the Winter....? You're getting like crazy USA weather.

We have had some extremes of weather this last year. Several snow times. Then very wet spring now the summer is very hot. The high temps have been beating long held records, some as old as 100 years old. We had rain for 2 days then back to this sizzling hot days again, one after the other with no breaks. I am much better when it is cold, sorry everyone!!
Your comment made me smile Craig but then you always do.😂

The link is working fine Bert! Sounds like you live in Paradise!! I am no good in heat however and long for Autumn or Spring when its dry and bright but not too warm!! The UK is feeling pretty Caribbean at the moment with long hot, very hot days!!! Great for everyone who doesn't have to go to work but Hell on wheels for people in suits commuting!! You enjoy your lovely setting Bert and it sounds like you are fit and active again!! Good news!! Enjoyed the song!

Bert and Craig thought you might like to see a photo from my County of beautiful sunny Cornwall. Porthcurno Beach near Penzance.
Turquoise sea and white sand. We have some gorgeous sandy coves in this part of the world, but unfortunately we don’t usually have your type of weather Bert. This summer though is a humdinger!😎❤️

Very, very nice Roxy.

Here is a link to give y'all an impression of Bonaire, the small Dutch island in the Caribbean, next to Aruba and Curacao and close to the shore of Colombia and Venezuela.

Bert I’ve been to Bonaire 3 Times on cruises. Thought it was so pretty with the colourful houses. Wish we’d had longer there. You’re so lucky living in paradise xxx ❤️😍❤️

How super nice, everyone...you are a wise man, Bert. I could live in one of those small "houses" right on the beach. I am stunned by the clear, blue, water. The waters and "surf" on the New 'Joisey' beaches are brownish-blackish-salty and cold, until you get in up to your waist-chest and get over the shock of the cold and then 'get used to it', but you can't see your hands, or feet. Can't get over the clarity of your water and the beaches. Alas, loved it in my youth, but my Dermatologist has me scared now, and he's right, re any Sun at all. I'm now paying the price for myriad Summers on the 11th Street beach in front of The Flanders Hotel. He said I have Celtic skin, red hair, white skin, freckles..."You people are the worst for sun damage. Next are blondes, some tan, some burn." But, there is 'something' innate in humans about the shore, sand, water. The Hope's lived in Ramsgate, Kent for centuries before they moved to London. Then to Toronto, Canada in 1920. Just like Bob Hope's family. They went to Cleveland, Ohio. Very poor and Bob got a job in a Vaudeville House doing jokes and dancing between the acts. Got pretty good at it, obviously. Hundreds of millions of dollars later in Beverly Hills, California.

The next time you're on a cruise visiting Bonaire, just let me know. We team up and have a drink together.

Life is interesting, to say the least. Good times, bad times, pain, pleasure, wealth, poverty, health, illness,...put 'em in a blender and mix for a minute. I wish you good, great, times, Bert. Long life, good health, wonderful skies and sunsets on Bonaire. Be well, great friend.

I have to admit Bert your sand is whiter than ours! Bonaire looks beautiful, so colourful an earthly paradise, not difficult to see why you choose to live there. Nevertheless I love my little old Cornwall. Something I appreciate about the Everly Brothers, when they toured the U.K. in the sixties, eighties and two thousands, they included Cornwall as part of their tour. Especially back in the sixties, Cornwall was regarded as fairly remote...ten and a half hour drive from London...(five and half hours now). Bless those boys they didn’t let their Cornish fans down or ignore them. ❤️
