Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Song Lyric Sunday…Today’s prompts are Burn/Fire/Flame.  This is a fun song to sing.  The husband and me, yes sing it whenever comes on.  It’s fun to see how much of, “The Fire,” we remember.  He beats me hands down every time.  Probably because he’s older than me and let’s not forget that very cool university he went too (Northwestern up in Evanston).  Great son prompts, Mr. Jim….

Now the last part of the Challenge and I don’t think I still no how to do it !!!  Yes it is the pingback, and it’s the weirdest thing I use to create a pingback by accident all the time but for some reason I just can’t figure it out 😦   Well what was it that  mom always said, “If at first you don’t succeed try, try again 🙂 .”  Or like the husband just said, “If at first you don’t succeed, let’s go golfing…”whatever.  

Happy Song Lyric Sunday ❤

So evidently I do know how to do a pingback because I just saw one on Mr. https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/04/07/the-place-is-on-fire/

Blog…Still not knowing how I did that, but whatever 😉
