Drove up to my in East Norwich, NY last Thursday and did a double-take…this Inn is owned by Burt Bacharach – who knew?! He was not there. Well, he is still here (alive) but was not there to welcome me – drats! Burt Bacharach is a famous songwriter – he is 85 years old and still on tour. Yup.
Burt is a 6 time Grammy and 3 Time Academy Award winner with hit songs from the 195os -1980s…I am most familiar with his work from the 60s and 70s…popular songs on the radio…”Do You Know the Way to San Jose”, “Alfie”, “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head”, “What the World Needs Now is Love”, “I Say a Little Prayer”, and “Walk On By”. Many of his songs were made famous by Dionne Warwick, The Carpenters, Herb Alpert, Dusty Springfield and Tom Jones. Oh and of course a few recent cameo appearances in the Austin Powers movies – huh.
Well, it made for an interesting stay – it was a safe, simple place and mostly clean…and was my second to last night before HOME…The weather cooperated and because I was there early (before sunset) I had a fairly relaxing night and got some work done…it was soooooo much better to have a 2 -3 hour drive instead of 6 hours like my Plan A…things always seem to have a way of working out.
Stayed with a great friend on Friday night thankfully and got home Saturday…there IS no place like home…
What is “home” for you?
