  • RainbowRay

    Fiona’s still my “Sexy Thing” even since yesterday! I can hardly wait to “kiss you and hold you in my arms” in front of Elvis’s grave Fiona honey, yiou “sexy thing” ! That would make up for every sacrifice and loss I made in had in life and sacrice and struggling I made for love and my dreams which I have been chasing for you as well honey.


  • RainbowRay

    I dream of working with a certain “Green Eyed Lady” on “Eric’s MIrror” and “RainbowRay” one day. Didn’t I see you on “The Facts of Life”? “The DIvision?”, “Style and Substance?” “Sunny With a Chance Of…?” and “The Hitchhiker (I think)?”


  • RainbowRay

    Would this “green eyed lady” like to win an Emmy for Eric’s Mirror? I sure would; it would make up for all the tragedy and trauma that happened in my life and would certainly make a differerence in other peoples lives because the world needs an “Eric’s Mirror” and “RainbowRay” and not another “Norway!”


  • RainbowRay

    I remember this song very well and purchased thes ingle when it first came out I believe back in 78 (I believe I alsos till have the single packed away somewhere). Still like that song after all these years and look forward to “boogying” with the love of my life Fiona for many years to come.

    Great trip down memory lane! Thanks KEarth101!
