Yellow Rose to Texas

Det er en sang om ‘Texas gule rose’, men jeg kan aldri tenke meg at sangforfatteren hadde en tropisk storm av et format som stormen ‘Harvey’ i tankene? Så jeg tillater meg å gjøre en lett omskrivning av denne teksten og sender en digital gul rose til alle som har blitt rammet, og ikke minst til hjelpemannskaper som gang på gang blir tvunget til å yte langt mer enn forventet og samtidig ta vanskelige avgjørelser langt ut over det vanlige. Vi føler med dere! Og tommelen opp for alle som står klar i Louisiana!
There is a song named ‘The Yellow Rose of Texas’, but I really don’t think the songwriter in he’s wildest dreams could imagine a tropical storm of such proportions as the storm named ‘Harvey’?
So today I’m taking the liberty of re-writing a piece of the caption, sending a yellow rose to Texas; – to all the people that have been hit, and not the least to all the rescue workers all over the Houston area and surrounding areas who time and time again must make extremely difficult priorities and at the same time deliver way more than anyone would expect them to! We’re feeling with you!
And thumbs up for all you guys at the ready in Louisiana!

    Thank you, Svein, for your lovely tribute to Texas. A perfect yellow rose hopefully can bring a little joy to those that are going through this horrific ordeal. Reblogging.

  5. It is really nice that you send these special greetings to Texas – the last blossoming rose of Norway this year? Well, yesterday we had nearly 30° in Berlin, but now the weather will change also here to a cooler period. Still a lot of blossiming roses (for example “New Dawn”) on our balcony which has been changed by my wife into a real djungle with hundreds (or even thousands?) of blossoms, I really can’t count them all ….

      That sounds really exiting?! We har som roses outside the door (the cheapest kind bought in a grocery store and later planted outside. Looking at it todfay, there are foilage what-so-ever but dozens of roses in bloom! Last fling, I guess! We hope to have pleasant temperatures yet another couple of weeks, but one never know any more. There have been years where the first snow came in January, but last year it came early October!!!

    Did you know, David, that today (2017) nobody seems to know exactly who wrote the most popular western ballade of all times: ‘The yellow rose of Texas’ ?
    Many are the artists who have made a ‘cover hit’ with it, but nobody seems to know who should be paid for the original? (Probably long time deceased, but still . . .)

  7. Seenorway says:

    You can’t win them all, David! I have great expectations for tomorrow. It’s supposed to be around 17 degrees with bright sun. So perhaps I’m going into the woods for the day?!

  8. Good one. No wonder they call the Rose ….”The Queen of Flowers”. Our are now suffering from a damp August, a sudden heatwave and now heavy rain. Shame as we were looking to a late summer full of colour packed roses.
