Today's earrings are black but not really black is black. That phrase came to me because of the song by Los Bravos "Black is Black" from the 1960s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tqgwnv0HCk8 If you're like me, this video will bring back many memories, that is if you are old enough! Maybe sometime I will have to do a blog on colorful song titles.
Had the privilege of Michael Quinion read the blog on "For Pete's Sake." Hope I didn't embarrass him too much with what I wrote. Bet you that he could tell good stories! Any time anyone wants to tell me a story, I'm almost always up for it.
