Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear, Every Time, You Post, Dear?

So, one of the highlights of my day are the several times daily concerts provided by the courthouse bell tower across the street. When I first arrived, it was show tunes - "Moonriver" (not really a show tune, fine), "Matchmaker" (the most Jewish thing in WV, as far as I can tell), "Surrey with a Fringe," "I Could Have Danced All Night," "Impossible Dream" (oddly, I dunno, inspiring?), "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning," "On the Street Where You Live."

Then came the melancholy - "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "Yesterday."

Then the juxtaposed-with-Ripely classics - "Piano Man," "Downtown," "New York, New York."

And now, the Carpenters' "Close to You," causing me to pause data entry to chime in "ahh, ahhhhh, close to you . . . ."
