Veteran’s Day

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) The mewsic theme this week is a freebie so I decided to go with some patriotic music for Veteran’s Day. I am thankful to all who serve and have served.

My Dad was in the Air Force.   I use this photo every year of my Angel Lucy posing with his flag and picture.

Mewsic Monday

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?And we are also joining Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.)

The theme this week is a tough one, things you like about autumn. I love everything about it, apples, Halloween, colder weather and more, but I had a tough time finding songs. The words to the songs don’t fit, but the titles do and I like all the songs so here they are:

  1. Autumn in New York ( Frank Sinatra)-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmrb29W_Ktk

2. Wake Me Up When September Ends (Green Day)-https://youtu.be/jVO8sUrs-Pw

3. Colder Weather ( Zac Brown Band)-https://youtu.be/oouFE51HcqM

 
Penny is in deep thought. She is thinking of a tip for her post tomorrow.

Mewsic , Books and More

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?And we are also joining Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.)

I am currently reading Once Upon a Farm by Rory Feek and I recently finished his other memoir, This Life I Live: One Man’s Extraordinary, Ordinary Life and the Woman Who Changed It Forever.

I was not familiar with Rory or his wife , Joey  who passed away in 2016. They had a tv show about their life together, but I didn’t know about it until I read these books. They both were country writers and singers. She helped raise his 2 daughters and sadly, when they finally had a child, Joey was diagnosed with cancer and only survived until the child’s second birthday.  Despite life’s problems, he maintains a positive attitude and writes of what he has learned from life.

Today is a freebie day on the mewsic so I chose songs written by Rory.

  1. Blake Shelton’s Some Beach- I always liked this, but had no idea that Rory Feek wrote it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTT2LEyjdC4
  2. Joey and Rory-When I’m Gone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcpjSMmWUDw This was recorded in 2012, long before she was diagnosed with cancer.

  2. Bridge Over Troubled Water ( Simon and Garfunkel): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_a46WJ1viA

I have actually never had whiskey, but I like the song and the video which features Ricky Schroder.

KaTwo has decided to be a statue.

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked. This week’s theme is songs with animals in the title so I couldn’t resist.All mine have some type of cat in them.

  1. Eye of the Tiger (Survivor )- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btPJPFnesV4

Mewsic Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.)

This week’s theme is songs with numbers in the title.

  1. Goody Two Shoes ( Adam Ant, 1982)- https://youtu.be/27Tj-Xo_eqI
  2. Prince’s 1999 ( 1982  ) – https://youtu.be/rg1UX3HvseQ
  3. Bryan Adams’ Summer 0f 69-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f06QZCVUHg

I know I used Summer of ’69 before, but I love that song because I was born in the summer of 69.

Prince’s 1999 makes me feel old, I remember when it came out and 1999 seemed so far away. Now it seems so far away from the other side of it.

I chose Goody Two Shoes because I tap danced to that song in a dance recital many years ago.

And Joanie and Prancie have a spark for today:

“A best friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find, lucky to have.”

 

 

Mewsic Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.)

The Mewsic theme this week is tv and movie themes from one’s childhood.

1.Grease (1978)-  https://youtu.be/OtOmKaVbP_A

2. The Facts of Life -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sd6wEeKjbqg

3, Silver Spoons- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lh6D4vGc8KQ Before I fell in love with Nicolas Cage, I had a big crush on Ricky Schroder.

Joanie is dressed in the mermaid costume and our quote is something we found on Pinterest, “There is a million fish in the sea, be a mermaid.”

 

Memorial Day

Hi everyone!I know it is Memorial Day, but we are still hopping.We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) We are also still doing a Spark.

My spark is a quote by Gandhi- ‘ Speak only if it improves upon the silence.’  I m not sure if it is just me, but it sure seems like there is too much talking everywhere and so much of it is just babble. It drives me crazy to see drivers on their cell phones, people walking and texting. Pardon my rant.

This week is our choice for the Mewsic Hop so I chose a song that goes with my spark.

Neon Trees- Everybody Talks-

And here is another photo of Joanie from her photo shoot with The Great One.

Mewsic Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.)

This week’s theme for Mewsic Moves Me is songs about Remembering or Forgetting. They don’t have to have Forget or Remember in the title, just in the lyrics.

  1. Strawberry Wine ( Deanna Carter)- 1995- One line , ” I still remember when thirty was old” –

 

2. Never Say Goodbye ( Bon Jovi-1986)-

3. Memory ( from the musical, CATS)-

   I don’t know why Mom thinks I licked her Klondike bar. My spark for today is “Life is Short. Eat Dessert First.” by Jacques Torres.

 

Silvervine Toast

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Mewsic Moves Me ( hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.)

The theme for Mewsic Moves Me is Earth. My first choice is also my spark.

1. Vince Gill- Let There Be Peace on Earth

2. Earth Song-John Denver

3. Earth Angel ( played in the film, Back to The Future)- not about the earth, but has the word in it.

And for the A-Z Blogging Challenge, we are already at the letter T. I made a slice of toast, but there was no place to stuff it with nip so I rubbed silvervine on it , like cinnamon toast 🙂

Joanie broke the modeling rule and started playing with it.

I am skipping the reading hop today because I haven’t had much time to read lately.
