When I was 18, I spent the summer in Hinckley, MN working on some power lines that a company called Commonwealth Electric was building.

That was pretty heady stuff for an 18-year-old away from home for the first time for a whole summer.

There were two songs that I remember from that summer.

One was “Baker Street” by Gerry Rafferty.

The other was this one by Michael Johnson.

Funny how some songs are tied to a time.

That was a good song, for sure.

That was a good summer, too.

I wonder what’s up on the “Lester Dracy All-Electric Farm”?
