I started this little blog up a few years ago, and played with it, then thought naw this isn't going to be for me. You know open mouth...insert foot. Then I thought well maybe if I limited it to certain topics, number of posts a day on those topics..but I am not that regimented of a person. I wanted it a place I could be free to be me. So I let it just sit, I listened to my music, and did other things.
Why do melons have fancy weddings? Because they cantaloupe.
Grow your own dope........Plant a man ~Faye
Two older ladies were sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower show was in progress.
One leaned over and said, "Life is so boring. We never have any fun anymore. For $5.00 I'd take my clothes off right now and streak through that stupid flower show!"
"You're on!" said the other old lady, holding up a $5.00 bill.
As fast as she could, the first little old lady fumbled her way out of her clothes and, completely naked, streaked through the front door of the flower show.
Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall, followed by loud applause. The naked lady burst out through the door surrounded by a cheering crowd.
"What happened?" asked her waiting friend.
"Why, I won first prize for Best Dried Arrangement."
And to think...when I posted Old Man....I had you in mind....but in a nice way...really...old man! lmao!
I love you Bubbles! So, here's the deal....
Sister Golden Hair...because you are the blonde in the family, simple yeah...but there ya go.....
The next...because you are gettin' on with your bad self and doin' your thing...you go girl, I am soooo proud of you!
Third song is obvious...I took you to your first concert...and it was Night Ranger you lucky little girl you...lol....
And finally, I hope you always, ALWAYS....dance!
Let's do this again....and again, before I go home to Tennessee....
A kiss and a peck and a hug around the neck, to the moon and back again and as big as I've ever been, THAT'S how much....I love you!

III to III: Help for a Patriot's daughter
At the Sea-Side
from all those interested enough to show.
How indeed, does your garden grow....
No, seriously how do you like your music, we have figured out, that you prefer YouTube to Spotify...wish granted....
Now, I ask...do you prefer long playing, or song by song? You see, I am thinking you can put on the long playing and do other things on your computer or around the house or what/wherever....
But your wish is my command,
so please tell me true...gimme a hand!
I really need your input....hot or cold drink?
It's more important than you think!
So, how do you like your song?
Short playing or long?
Cross-eyed mosquitoes and bow-legged ants,
I come before you to stand behind you,
To tell you something I know nothing about.
Next Thursday, this is Good Friday,
There will be a Mother’s Day meeting for fathers only;
Admission is free, so pay at the door,
Pull up a seat and sit on the floor.
We will discuss a story you’ve all heard before.
One bright morning, in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys, got up to fight,
They lived on the corner, in the middle of the block
On the second floor, of a vacant lot.
One had a fiddle, one had a drum,
And one had a pancake stuck to his bum,
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each another,
One was blind and the other couldn’t see
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
A blind man went to see fair play,
A dumb man went to shout “hooray!”
A paralyzed donkey passing by,
Kicked the blind man in the eye,
Knocked him through a nine inch wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all,
A mute onlooker shrieked in fright.
And a lame man danced at the ghastly sight.
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came to arrest the two dead boys,
One dead boy who had no feet,
Began to run down the street.
The other dead boy who could not talk,
Said "Oh Policeman let me walk."
If you don’t believe this little lie is true,
Ask the blind man he saw it too!

Ken and I have two additional members of our household, we call them "our" children, Charliegoddammit, and LegalLucy....if you read Kens blog, then you have seen the photos of them...I had never personally had a pet prior to CGD....and he and I bonded immediately...I love that big ole hunk of fur and love...and then along came Lucy...she is feisty and lovable although we can tell at some point she was abused, a true little lady tho, she runs the show, she da boss. I love them, and it would absolutely break me if something happened to them...but I know for me....2 is a limit.....I see them as little people and they need as much as a little one...love, care, attention...
I found this video, a few years old, and my first take was HOARDER...but as I watched, my heart and mind changed, and I see a man, with enough love, and ability to care for animals that otherwise would be left on the side of the road, or put down...how sad is that....so I went from my first thought to what an amazing spirit Mr. Van Bramer must have to be able to give each animal such personalized care and affection, and the work he puts in to get services and product needed to care for these poor creatures, what a heart is in that man. Is he crazy? Some might say so....I don't think so...near the end of the video, he tells a short story about a man meeting St. Peter at the Golden Gates...and I think that it is an awesome summarization of this story and his work.
If you have an hour, check this out....I am a girl, and it made me cry a couple of times...but it also opened my eyes about a few things...the last ten minutes or so of the video is a repeat of the beginning so it's not a full hour....but check it out if you can, or if you have heard about it....let me know what you think....I would sure be interested to know.

This man starred in many pre pubescent dreams, and followed em right into the 52 year old woman sitting here today....always easy on the eyes and ears. Gone but Never Forgotten....
Glenn Frey, Eagles Guitarist, Dies at 67
We have lost another great musician. I learned to fly with your voice in my ears. May your heart be light, and your wings give you flight. Thank you for all the love and joy you and your music brought to the world. Rest in peace.

One of my favorite CCR tunes. Okay,some CCR trivia: They were named Golliwogs before they were CCR. There was a band in the Pittsburgh area back in the early/mid sixties called The Fantastic Dee Jays who were the precursor to my beloved Swamprats and they did a song called "Fight Fire". The original was by the Golliwogs. The high point for the Dee Jays was when they opened for the Rolling Stones when they played here in 1965.
And now an interesting thing about the Fantastic Dee Jays. At least I think it's interesting. Back in the '80s Coors used the instrumental from one of their songs as background in a commercial showing people skiing and fishing in the winter. I love it when ad agencies dig up obscure songs to use.
Thanks taminator013, once again, your knowledge is an interesting addition. Thank you for sharing with us!

Listening...you won't necessarily find beauty in the voice...depends on your ear....but if you listen to her words...there you will find the value..or I did anyway...
I am writing this after the first two songs...so let's see what happens with Sara...and thanks taminator013 for turning us on to Tammy....I like what you put out there for us once again.
*** The purpose of this performance was to raise money for the benefit of mental illness, and suicide prevention, of which I fully support, so I can completely see the beauty in this video. I have known people with mental health issues as well as a couple of people who have taken their lives...and no matter how you look at it, there is a great sadness, and a grasping at love, that cannot be denied. Somehow, I feel there should be enough to go around.
It has also not gone unnoticed by me, that while this post started as something humorous, it has certainly taken a turn to the more serious...and that is a message in itself...oft times the funniest of people, the most gifted or talented, are the most stricken with depression...as in Robin Williams case, let us not only hear what they are saying....but look beyond into what they are not saying. I posted a poem a while back...."Please Hear What I'm Not Saying"...it's worth a second look.

"This may very well be the toughest story for me to read today." ~ Gregg MossIt's almost impossible not to laugh while watching the #9NEWSMornings anchors struggling to get through this story about a man who smuggled a snake out of the pet store by putting it down his pants.Posted by 9NEWS (KUSA) on Tuesday, January 12, 2016
