sung to the tune of "Wendy" by the Beach boys:


Sanding, sanding what went wrong? Oh so wrong
I’ve been at you for oh so long.
I never thought a guy could cry,
But I seemed to hit the 2nd ply
Oh sanding, Sanding left me a hole

Sanding, Sanding went to my head
My woosy head
Sanding, Extra efforts and extra strokes
A smooth finish looks very grim
Dust, and my vision is awful dim
Oh sanding, Sanding left me a hole

Sanding, thought you’d make it all flat
A hole, a hole, A hole
I thought my block was straighter than that
Guess I was wrong
A warp, and not the right kind
Fixing it leaves me in a bind
Oh sanding, Sanding left me a hole..


enjoy!

I always had the first verse, just came up with the 2nd two this afternoon...

T'was the night before launching and all the thru the house
the dust covered everything, even the mouse.
The kids had moved out-they had suffered enuff
with the noise and the mess of Dad sanding stuff.
My wife in her dusk mask all covered in gray
Shook her finger at me and started to pray
that her crazy old man would outgrow this phase
as she wondered back out thru the thick primer haze.
Now you'd think that the holidayiwould be all full of cheer
but my family hangs back and won't even come near.
So I'll hang up my rockets (all over the house)
get out the vacuum and clean off the mouse.
I'll make amends with the holidays near
As I order more sandpaper and crack open a beer.
I think about cleaning this crazy man's cave
as a last minute try for the holiday save.
I emerge just in time for my bleary-eyed gaze
to see wonderous food and a turkey (with glaze!)
and my clan 'round the table that's already set
and all is forgiven-it's as good as it gets!

(apologies in part to'The Night Before Christmas' and the Viking Princess)

Good grief, Doc- didn't mean to sink your thread. OTOH, it was your inspiration to come up with the off-the-cuff reply. Yours was very clever and I had to look up the music to remember the tune. Pearls before, well, TRF! At least me and Tango liked it. More, please!
