Our theme this week is

it had been A HARD DAY’S NIGHT! PANCHO AND LEFTY had been trekkin’ the STREETS OF LAREDO ALL NIGHT LONG in search of FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD. Pancho was sure he hadn’t been this hungry since THE NIGHT THEY DROVE OLD DIXIE DOWN to the abattoir as a last resort.

As they exited THE BIG YELLOW TAXI, Pancho hoped that the SISTERS OF MERCY would have something for them in their HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN. He and Lefty were RUNNIN’ ON EMPTY in more ways than one

They approached reverently and stood knock, knock KNOCKIN’ ON HEAVEN’S DOOR but no one answered. “HELLO IN THERE”. Again no response. Apparently the ANGELS FROM MONTGOMERY had flown.

But all was not lost. On the doorstep was left some BREAD & ROSES. “HALLELUJAH,” praised Pancho as he tore into the loaf. Just then the sky brightened. “ Pancho look,“exclaimed Lefty,“ MORNING HAS BROKEN”.

”That ain’t all that’s broken,” lisped Pancho as he spit out what was left of his teeth. Under the porch CASEY JONES could barely contain himself. And they had told him THE WABASH CANNONBALL would never RISE AGAIN
