Year of the Cat
Al Stewart (July 1976)
It's Friday. Yippee right?
I'm sure most of you are tickled pink.
Not me. Friday signifies the end of my vacation (very sad face) When I return to work on Monday, I will have been off for 10 1/2 days! You would think that would be enough. NEVER! and WHY does it only seem like yesterday??
Oh well, it's not quite over yet. I still have 3 days to enjoy.
What do you have planned for the weekend?

How many of you remember this 1976 hit oldie, Year of the Cat by Al Stewart
(be sure to click the link to listen to the song)
I didn't have any particular reason for choosing this song for my oldie jam pick this week. I just like it! You may remember the tune but not the artist.
Alastair Ian "Al" Stewart born 5 September 1945 is a Scottish singer-songwriter and folk-rock musician who rose to prominence as part of the British folk revival in the 1960s and 1970s. He developed a unique style of combining folk-rock songs with delicately woven tales of characters and events from history.
He is best known for his 1976 hit single "Year of the Cat", the title song from the platinum album of the same name was written as tribute to well known British comedian named Tony Hancock.
Whatever you have planned (or don't)...Hope you enjoy your weekend?
