November 11 – Monday – Fleetwood Mac – Penguin
This album was one of the many produced by Fleetwood Mac pre-Buckingham/Nicks. By the way, has anyone ever seen the cover of the Buckingham Nicks album that they released before joining Fleetwood Mac? Pretty! Very.
Hey, this is a good album. I know I thought that when I bought it. I felt that way one time about all the albums I have, but this is another that I still enjoy, though I haven’t listened to it for a very long time. I do regret that I don’t have the Fleetwood Mac albums with Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. I liked the music, still do. I think I was resistant, possibly because I was following the Bob Welch route after he left the band, and maybe because I thought Stevie was overshadowing Christine McVie. Don’t really remember, but know I did have an issue.
Sunday, I saw the Robert Redford movie All is Lost, with the ex, who has turned into somewhat of a movie buddy. This movie may not be to everyone’s taste and it may or may not have been to mine. It was my idea to see it, and I did find it most interesting. Redford – crush for life. He’s my soul-crush no matter how withered and weathered he gets.
And the ex – he’s now a friend for life. Don’t ask me how this is possible, but do know that it was not an overnight process, and that we were not always friends, especially when we were a couple. I can’t speak for him, but I do think that we have come to realize that after all the tumult, we care about each other, we like each other very much, and that we should not be together.
