Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Like Paul McCartney of The Beatles said in their 1968 album The Beatles, "Life Goes On!" Here is the building that was the home of the once-huge but now defunct Borders Bookshop. But life goes on... On the left is a makeshift desk and chairs seemingly designed to start a new business. The red and green neon reflections you see are from the Shorty's BBQ place across US-1.

The tag line "ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, bra" was an expression used by a Nigerian conga player Jimmy Scott-Emuakpor, who was an acquaintance of McCartney. To me, it means "Life Goes On!"
Life Goes On
