This morning I have the song, "If I were a carpenter," stuck in my head. Don't ask me why, it's just there. I've learned not to fight it, and just sing along ;-)
Below is a version performed live by Bobby Darin, with lyrics following. After looking for a recording of the song, I came across the backstory of Bobby Darin, who performed this even though quite ill, and unfortunately, later that year, did not survive heart surgery to repair a damaged heart valve. He died at the young age of 37.
If I were a carpenter -- written by Tim Hardin
- Donation: Ultimately to LiveStrong, in memory of my Mom. But really that is part of a CrowdRise donation to honor a friend of the "ordinary guy" that gave me the idea for this whole giving thing. Kinda neat.
- Exercise: Run around the Mittlerer Schlossgarten, Unterer Schlossgarten, and Rosensteinpark in the center of Stuttgart -- really beautiful. 8.5 miles (80 mins)
