"Well I'm a sucker for fine Cuban cigars
The problem is I can't afford 'em
But last year I went and got myself a whole box
And just to be safe, I insured ' em...

"Father's Day Stogie"
The Better Half

...I took out a policy against fire and theft
And then I hurried on home
With a fifty-cent lighter, I sat on my back steps
And I smoked ' em one by one...

"Up in Flames"

...Two weeks later I went to see that insurance man
And I handed in my claim
With a straight face I told him that through a series of small fires
They'd all gone up in flames."

-Cigar Song (Brad Paisley)

Well, it was Father's Day so I could hardly complain about the fine dad smokin' the fine Cuban.  Okay....MAYBE I just hardly complained!


Welcome to another Tuesday and Song-ography!  You know what we do here, we mash up song/lyric with photography.  Anything goes.  Links from blogs, Instagram, Flickr are all welcome.  The only rules are the basics:

Song/Lyric + Photograph(s) = Song-ography

It's just that simple.  I see we have had a few new Song-ographers the past couple of week...YIPPEE!  A warm welcome to all newbies, and a "welcome back" to our regulars.  Looking forward to blog hopping and seeing all your submissions.  I encourage everyone to take some time and visit a few blogs yourself.  

Thanks again for all comments, and to those who link up!

(Song-ography on Tuesdays.  Click on photo for a full description.)

  4. LOL, I never heard that song before. My grandpa used to smoke cigars and you didn't want to be in the back seat behind him in the car because he'd spit out of the window and it wasn't pretty............. I guess your Better Half had a real good Father's Day.

  5. Your better half looks sooooo delighted! Worth every cent you paid for the cigars. Wonderful images.

  6. My hubby also loves a good cigar!!! And I "hardly" ever complain.
