FRIDAY SING ALONG

Swett Nothin's
My baby whispers in my ear
Sweet nothings
He knows the things I like to hear
Sweet nothings
Things he wouldn't tell
Nobody else
Secret baby
I keep them to myself
Sweet nothings
Sweet nothings
We walk along hand in hand
Sweet nothings
Yeah we both understand
Sweet nothings
Sitting in classroom trying to read my book
My baby give me that special look
Sweet nothings
Sweet nothings
Ah sitting on my front porch
Sweet nothings
Well do I love you, of course
Sweet nothings
Mama turned on the front porch light
Saying come here darling that enough for tonight
Sweet nothings
Sweet nothings
Sweet nothings

GETTING RID OF STUFF

Question Of The Week 12-17-18

What’s been on your mind most lately?

Friday, December 14, 2018

FRIDAY SING ALONG

Twilight Time
Heavenly shades of night are falling, it's twilight time
Out of the mist your voice is calling, it's twilight time
When purple colored curtains mark the end of day
I'll hear you, my dear, at twilight time
Deepening shadows gather splendor as day is done
Fingers of night will soon surrender the setting sun
I count the moments darling till you're here with me
Together at last at twilight time
Here, in the afterglow of day, we keep our rendezvous beneath the blue
Here in the same and sweet old way, I fall in love again as I did then
Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me with dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just to be with you
Together at last at twilight time
Here, in the afterglow of day, we keep our rendezvous beneath the blue
Here in the sweet and same old way, I fall in love again as I did then
Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me with dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just to be with you
Together at last at twilight time
Together at last at twilight time

Question Of The Week 12-03-18

Who would you like to please the most?

Friday, November 30, 2018

FRIDAY SING ALONG


In Dreams
A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
"Go to sleep. Everything is all right."
I close my eyes, then I drift away
Into the magic night, I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep to dreams, my dreams of you
In dreams I walk with you, in dreams I talk to you
In dreams you're mine, all of the time
We're together in dreams, in dreams
But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone
I can't help it, I can't help it, if I cry
I remember that you said goodbye
It's too bad that all these things
Can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams, in beautiful dreams

Stupid Cupid
 
Stupid Cupid you're a real mean guy
I'd like to clip your wings so you can't fly
I'm in love and it's a crying shame
And I know that you're the one to blame
Hey hey, set me free
Stupid Cupid stop picking on me
I can't do my homework and I can't think straight
I meet her every morning 'bout half past eight
I'm acting like a lovesick fool
You've even got me carrying your books to school
Hey hey, set me free
Stupid Cupid stop picking on me
You mixed me up for good right from the very start
Hey now, go play Robin Hood with somebody else's heart
You got me jumping like a crazy clown
And I don't feature what you're putting down
Well since I kissed her loving lips of wine
The thing that bothers me is that I like it fine
Hey hey, set me free
Stupid Cupid stop picking on me
You got me jumping like a crazy clown
And I don't feature what you're putting down
Well since I kissed his loving lips of wine
The thing that bothers me is that I like it fine
Hey hey, set me free
Stupid Cupid stop picking on me
Hey hey, set me free
Stupid Cupid stop picking on me

LOST AND FOUND

I found out a friend of mine from high school lives about 16 miles from me.  We were in the band together.  She played clarinet and I placed saxophone.  We had lunch and visited for the first time in 54 years:-)

Here I am without a smile.  I had braces on my teeth my senior year in high school and my freshman year in college.

Here is my friend the clarinet player.

Summertime Blues
I'm gonna raise a fuss, I'm gonna raise a holler
About a-workin' all summer just to try to earn a dollar
Every time I call my baby, try to get a date
My boss says, "no dice son, you gotta work late"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues
Well, my mom and pop told me, "son, you gotta make some money"
If you want to use the car to go ridin' next Sunday
Well, I didn't go to work, told the boss I was sick
"Well, you can't use the car 'cause you didn't work a lick"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues
I'm gonna take two weeks, gonna have a fine vacation
I'm gonna take my problem to the United Nations
Well, I called my congressman and he said "whoa!"
"I'd like to help you son but you're too young to vote"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

It’s All in the Game
Many a tear has to fall but it's all in the game
All in the wonderful game that we know as love
You have words with him and your future's looking dim
But these things your hearts can rise above
Once in a while he won't call but it's all in the game
Soon he'll be there at your side with a sweet bouquet
And he'll kiss your lips and caress your waiting fingertips
And your hearts will fly away
with a sweet bouquet
Then he'll kiss your lips and caress your waiting fingertips
And your hearts will fly away

NO POLITICS

I have family and friends who are  more precious to me than Republicans or Democrats.  They strongly and often post their opinions of political issues and I refrain from commenting.  I also refrain from posting my opinion on issues because I don't want to lose those friends on either side of the aisle.  I support their rights to voice their beliefs and hope they do not think I don't love them because I don't comment on their blogs or click "like" on Facebook. It is because I love them that I don't.  Just so you know....just sayin'.

FRIDAY SING ALONG



This Old Heart of Mine
This old heart of mine been broke a thousand times
Each time you break away, I fear you've gone to stay
Lonely nights that come, memories that flow, bringing you back again
Hurting me more and more
Maybe it's my mistake to show this love I feel inside
'Cause each day that passes by you got me
Never knowing if I'm coming or going, but I, I love you
This old heart darling, is weak for you
I love you, yes, I do
These old arms of mine miss having you around
Makes these tears inside start a-falling down
Always with half a kiss
You remind me of what I miss
Though I try to control myself
Like a fool I start grinnin' 'cause my head starts spinnin' 'cause I
I love you
This is old heart, darling is weak for you
I love you, yes I do, yes I do
Ooh, I try hard to hide, my hurt inside
This old heart of mine always keeps me cryin'
The way you're treating me, leaves me incomplete
You're here for the day, gone for the week now
But if you leave me a hundred times
A hundred times I'll take you back
I'm yours whenever you want me
I'm not too proud to shout it, tell the world about it 'cause I
I love you

This is old heart, darling is weak for you
I love you
This is old heart, darling is weak for you
I love you
This is old heart, darling is weak for you
I love you, yes I do, yes I do
I love you, yes I do, darling is weak for you

Love Is Many Splendored Thing
Four Aces
 

Love is a many splendored thing
It's the April rose that only grows in the early Spring
Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living
The golden crown that makes a man a king
Once on a high and windy hill, In the morning mist
Two lovers kissed and the world stood still
Then your fingers touched my silent heart and taught it how to sing
Yes, true love's a many splendored thing
Love is a many splendored thing
It's the April rose that only grows in the early Spring
Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living
The golden crown that makes a man a king
Once on a high and windy hill, In the morning mist
Two lovers kissed and the world stood still
Then your fingers touched my silent heart and taught it how to sing
Yes, true love's a many splendored thing

Crazy
Patsy Cline

I'm crazy, crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy crazy for feeling so blue
I knew that you'd love me as long as you wanted
And then some day you'd leave me for somebody new
Worry, why do I let myself worry
Wondering what in the world did I do
I'm crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you

I'm crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you

When I Fall in Love
Nat King Cole
 
When I fall in love it will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun
When I give my heart it will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness, hello loneliness
I think I'm-a gonna cry-y
Bye bye love, bye bye sweet caress, hello emptiness
I feel like I could di-ie
Bye bye my love goodby-eye
There goes my baby with-a someone new
She sure looks happy, I sure am blue

Goodbye to romance that might have been
Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness, hello loneliness

Bye bye my love goodby-eye
I'm-a through with romance, I'm a-through with love
I'm through with a'countin' the stars above
And here's the reason that I'm so free
My lovin' baby is through with me
Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness, hello loneliness

Honeycomb
Well it's a darn good life
And it's kinda funny
How the Lord made the bee
And the bee made the honey
And the honeybee lookin' for a home
And they called it honeycomb
And they roamed the world and they gathered all
Of the honeycomb into one sweet ball
And the honeycomb from a million trips
Made my baby's lips
Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone
And made a walkin' talkin' Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb
And the Lord said now that I made a bee
I'm gonna look all around for a green, green tree
And He made a little tree and I guess you heard
Oh, then well he made a little bird
And they waited all around till the end of Spring
Gettin' every note that the birdie'd sing
And they put 'em all into one sweet tome
For my Honeycomb
Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone
And made a walkin' talkin' Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb
 
 
And the Lord says now that I made a bird
I'm gonna look all round for a little ol' word
That sounds about sweet like "turtledove"
And I guess I'm gonna call it "love"
And He roamed the world lookin' everywhere
Gettin' love from here, love from there
And He put it all in a little ol' part
Of my baby's heart
 
Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone
And made a walkin' talkin' Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb

I've Been Loving You Too Long

FRIDAY SING-ALONG





Words Of Love
Words of love, so soft and tender
Won't win a girls heart anymore
If you love her then you must send her
Somewhere where she's never been before
Worn out phrases and longing gazes
Won't get you where you want to go, no
Words of love, soft and tender
Won't win her
You oughta know by now
You oughta know, you oughta know by now
Words of love, soft and tender
Won't win her anymore
You oughta know by now
You oughta know, you oughta know by now
Words of love, soft and tender
Won't win
Words of love, soft and tender
Won't win her anymore, anymore

FRIDAY SING ALONG

JUST BECAUSE
Lloyd Price

Just because you left and said goodbye
Do you think that I will sit and cry
Even if my heart should tell me so
Darling I would rather let you go
Just because you think that you're so smart
Going around and breaking lovers hearts
Before I let this thing happen to me
Darling I would rather swim the sea
I know you think you're smart
Just going around breaking lovers hearts
Just because I want someone who's kind
With a heart as good and pure as mine

But maybe I am asking far too much
Darling please don't ever break my heart
I know you think you're smart
Just going around breaking lovers hearts
Just because I want someone who's kind
With a heart as good and pure as mine
But maybe I am asking far too much
Darling please don't ever break my heart

SECLUSION

SIX SENTENCES FOR THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2018 

Linking up with Denise at Girlie On The Edge Blog, where she hosts Six Sentence Stories, and the cue is Explain.      



SECLUSION

He was a bit of a recluse which made Philip's life difficult to explain.

Why did he decide to accept a lecture circuit to tell strangers why his hermit life was valuable?

His longtime friend Graham had driven him to this auditorium and would accompany Philip to the other locations for his speech.

Philip looked around the packed hall with a grimace knowing this would not be a highlight of his secluded life.

He looked at Graham whom he had promised to tell the world why he had disappeared after his invention won him fame and fortune.

Philip spoke to the crowd, “I don't like people.”

CUE WORD EXHAUST

 Guess I will try Six Sentence Stories.  I always see this on Messymimi's Meanderings

I worked hard to get ready for her every week.

She was a wonderful housekeeper, loved by many.

I did not want her work to be too much for fear she would stop coming.

My husband always asked me, “Why do you clean before the housekeeper gets here?”

“If I exhaust her she might not come back.” I replied.

"It is my wish that I will die before my housekeeper."

SPEAKING OUT


How angry are you?  Pick a reason...politics, religion, race, gender, etc.  No wonder so many people are depressed.

I have friends and family on both sides of every issue. I do not comment and I do not share my opinions. It pains me to see them all so angry.  It would pain me more to take a side and lose someone's love and affection.

Yet they are brave enough to stand up for what they believe regardless of consequences.  Would they abandon me if I shared my opinion?

Civil unrest is upon us on even the smallest of causes.  Where can it lead?

PAY UP

Words For Wednesday provided by Lee of Kitchen Connections

PAY UP by Granny Annie

Should she have given him money?

He was audacious in his comments. First of all Sherry did not even know the guy. The fact he picked her to ask his impudent questions filled her with angst.

The stranger's narrative started with calling Sherry “a rich bitch.” She had passed him by without dropping any coins in his cup. “Why are you so thoughtless?” this homeless man ask. “You did not even give me the courtesy of a smile.” His provocative attitude really got to her.

She thought about stopping to defend her neglect but continued walking. She should have given him some money because this encounter would haunt her. It would ruin the rest of her day.

Did she do the right thing?

GATES OF HELL HAVE CLOSED

My brother saved up his office clutter for my burn cage.  He brought it last week but we could not burn because it was too windy and dry.  I waited until this past Monday when the ground was wet and there was no wind.  Got a wonderful fire going...and going...and going.  By afternoon the ground was no longer dry and the wind was picking up.  The fire was still burning. My hose would not reach the burn cage so I had to carry buckets of water to keep the wind from blowing hot ashes out into my field.  Would you believe the alert went out for "fire danger" and even yesterday there was still a whirlpool hole in the center of the burn that I could not put out?  It looked like the entrance to Hell.  

I told my son and he texted me: "I would suggest keeping a good distance away and a crucifix handy.  Let me know if you smell sulfur or hear faint screaming"

WFW DESTROYING THE LAND

This is my story for the week.  River has provided wonderful Word For Wednesday for the month of February.   If you want to join in, just click on the link to find the prompts for today provided by River of Drifting Through Life. Be sure and look for the other stories.
  
DESTROYING THE LAND by Granny Annie

It was a beautiful sunlit day. I squinted in my efforts to view the movement on the hillside. Was the figure moving toward us a human or an animal? The feeling was not comfortable with either scenario. No visitors were expected and the prospect of the uninvited guest being a bear was frightening. We had come out for this walk without our phones. We only wanted to enjoy the warmth of the day, the beautiful sights and the petrichor that remained from the last rain. We had not wanted this leisure to be disrupted.

This was our personal space. The other side of the hill was active with trucks rumbling out of the quarry. The carried loads of granite and the closer we got the louder the noise. The figure was within our sight now and recognized as the owner of the quarry. His name was Hudson and he was normally not of a good disposition however he wore a huge smile on his face. This made the encounter more frightening. What did he want from us this time? We thought we had made ourselves clear on his last visit.

Todd and I welcomed the man. We offered him a drink from our canteen, knowing he would be parched from the long hike. He accepted the offer gladly.

The men both sat on the ground but I knew if I joined them I would never get up again. I could only squat to get more on their level and we began to talk.

What brings you over the hill today?” I ask Mr. Hudson.

He responded, “I was wondering how you were doing over here. Thought it was time for a friendly chat and to catch up.”

My mind clinched and I glanced at Todd. Both of us knew Hudson had a lot more on his mind. “That's nice” I said, “and just what are we catching up on? It wouldn't be copper would it?”

Come on you guys” Hudson said, “at least consider my offer. It is a fair one and the two of you can't live out here forever. There is a huge demand for copper and you are sitting on a fortune. I have the ability to mine it and you do not. My offer is good and the money would make a great legacy for your children.”

This property is our legacy for the children” Todd responded, using a harsh tone. “If they want the copper mined they can have that done themselves. We sincerely doubt they will want this beautiful valley destroyed any more than we do.”

I am guessing your children would rather have the money than the land.” Mr. Hudson replied adamantly.

My anger was showing when I said “You should not have made this long walk Mr. Hudson. We still are not going to sell this place. You best head back to your quarry.”

Mr. Hudson was mumbling as he turned to go back. If we had been mind-readers we would have known he was saying something about bringing more men next time and clearing the place off. He just knew the kids would be easier to deal with if Todd and I were gone.
