Happy Song Lyric Sunday !!!

So happy to be back and on my blog…Hello to all my blogger friend’s. It’s great to be back. One of my fav challenges, SLS. I usually use the 1st song that comes to mind after reading the challenge.

Today’s prompt for SLS is, “ This week the theme is to find songs with recognizable introsThanks for the prompt Mr. Jim 🙂

This is one of my fondest memories from back in the day. Pre-pandemic we use to attend many local consert’s during the summer. One of our favorite groups to follow were, “The Ides of March.” They put on a really fun evening and I even became part of the show one time.

Long story short, Jim Peterik was singing one of the song’s he wrote, “The Search is Over,” made famous by the group Survivor. We got to the concert late and came in as he was performing this song. He walked down off the stage and came right up to me and continued singing the song to me. It was a very special moment. Another concert in Milwaukee I got some pics with him. He kind of got to know us considering we were always in the front row at many of his hometown venues 😉 … It was alway such a great time !!!!

Me and Jim Peterik in Milwaukee @Musicfest…

Many great memories of concert’s gone by. Thanks Mr. Jim Peterik for a great time and great memories.

Vehicle

Hey, well
I’m the friendly stranger in the black Sedan
Won’t you hop inside my car?
I got pictures, got candy
I’m a lovable man
And I can take you to the nearest star

I’m your vehicle, baby
I’ll take you anywhere you want to go
I’m your vehicle, woman
by now I’m sure you know

That I love ya (love ya)
I need ya (need ya)
I want ya
Got to have you, child
Great God in Heaven, you know I love you

Well, if you wants to be a movie star
I can-a take you to Hollywood
But if you want to stay just like you are
You know, I think you really should

I’m your vehicle, baby
I’ll take you anywhere you want to go
I’m your vehicle, woman
by now I’m sure you know

That I love ya (love ya)
I need ya (need ya)
I want ya
Got to have you, child
Great God in Heaven, you know I love you
Oh, you know I do

Well, I’m the friendly stranger in the black Sedan
Won’t you hop inside my car?
I got pictures, candy
I’m a lovable man
And I can take you to the nearest star

I’m your vehicle, babe
I’ll take you anywhere you want to go
I’m your vehicle, woman
by now I’m sure you know

That I love ya (love ya)
I need ya (need ya)
I want ya
I got to have you
Great God in Heaven, you know I love you

And I’m your vehicle, babe, alright
You know I love ya (love ya)
I need ya (need ya)
I want ya
Got to have you, child
Great God in Heaven, you know I love you

Thankful Thursday…

I’m probably a week early, but whatever.

Going back into a Midwest winter, which is something everyone can be grateful for…Not. But it’s going to be okay. I’m just grateful for being on my blog again. It’s going to take a bit to get my, “Editorial Calendar” operating again, no worries though. I’m just grateful for being able to blog and post.

So if your reading this, just post a comment in the section below so I’ll know that I truly am back… 🙂 Thanks so much for the help Mr. John. It worked, blessings to you for helping this blogger.

I just had to post a picture of our absolutely precious newest granddaughter !!! My heart just melts. Our family is truly blessed.

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday and it really is. Having an amazing fall here in the Midwest, but we all know what’s coming…I really need to get out and get my tree pictures i.e. leaf peeping. I have seen a few that makes !!!!

I saw this today and I grabbed it with my phone. I loved it and making, “Lists”…Really I can’t do the day, any day, w/o a list. Top 3, To Do’s, Daily, yadayadayada. I’m sure you get the picture.

The weather has been prrrrfect up until yesterday but I think we’ll eek out a few more nice, sunny, warm days before everything goes south. I think they call it Indian Summer…I know, that you can only call it that after the 1st tracking snow. Yes, I’m also a weather geek…There really isn’t a season or storm that I don’t like.

I hope this makes you smile !!!

This one’s for you Mz. Cheryl !!!! Because I knew you <3 This song really says it all for me <3 I love you friend <3 …

Happy Song Lyric Sunday

So happy to be back this Sunday morning!!! I’m totally feeling the today’s prompt for SLS, brought to us by Mr. Jim. This weeks theme is, “Songs that hit the top of the charts.”

Lake Shore Drive


There’s a road I’d like to tell you about, lives in my home town
Lake Shore Drive the road is called and it’ll take you up or down
From rags on up to riches fifteen minutes you can fly
Pretty blue lights along the way, help you right on by
And the blue lights shining with a heavenly grace, help you right on by

And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore Drive heading into town
Just slippin’ on by on LSD, Friday night trouble bound

And it starts up north from Hollywood, water on the driving side
Concrete mountains rearing up, throwing shadows just about five
Sometimes you can smell the green if your mind is feeling fine
There ain’t no finer place to be, than running Lake Shore Drive
And there’s no peace of mind, or place you see, than riding on Lake Shore Drive

And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore drive heading into town
Just slicking on by on LSD, Friday night trouble bound

And it’s Friday night and you’re looking clean
Too early to start the rounds
A ten minute ride from the Gold Coast back make sure you’re pleasure bound
And it’s four o’clock in the morning and all of the people have gone away
Just you and your mind and Lake Shore Drive, tomorrow is another day
And the sunshine’s fine in the morning time, tomorrow is another day

And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore drive heading into town
Just snaking on by on LSD, Friday night trouble bound

Good Song Lyric Sunday Morning

I’m up and ready to start this Sunday. I must be honest, I’m just not really feeling it today. It was easy to get a song for today’s prompt. I really love this guy. Me and the husband saw Toby Keith in Las Vegas back in the day. He put on a really great show.

The today’s prompt is, “Army, Soldier, War” for SLS comes from Mr. Jim.

Lyrics

I’m just trying to be a father
Raise a daughter and a son
Be a lover to their mother
Everything to everyone
Up and at ’em bright and early
I’m all business in my suit
Yeah, I’m dressed up for success
From my head down to my boots

I don’t do it for the money
There’s bills that I can’t pay
I don’t do it for the glory
I just do it anyway
Providing for our future’s my responsibility
Yeah, I’m real good under pressure
Being all that I can be

And I can’t call in sick on Mondays
When the weekends been too strong
I just work straight through the holidays
And sometimes all night long
You can bet that I stand ready
When the wolf growls at the door
Hey, I’m solid, hey I’m steady
Hey I’m true down to the core

And I will always do my duty
No matter what the price
I’ve counted up the cost
I know the sacrifice
Oh, and I don’t want to die for you
But if dyin’s asked of me
I’ll bear that cross with honor
‘Cause freedom don’t come free

I’m an American soldier, an American
Beside my brothers and my sisters
I will proudly take a stand
When liberty’s in jeopardy
I will always do what’s right
I’m out here on the front lines
sleep in peace tonight
American soldier, I’m an American soldier

yeah, an American soldier, an American
Beside my brothers and my sisters
I will proudly take a stand
When liberty’s in jeopardy
I will always do what’s right
I’m out here on the front lines
so sleep in peace tonight
American soldier, I’m an American

an American
an American soldier
