Y A Y it’s Friday…

I just wanted to stop by and say, “Thank You,” for Friday.  Thank you for another day.  Thank you for the husband who takes such good care of me and the family.  Thank you for my future, it looks really exciting and that’s a great thing considering I’m 60. I was not liking the whole 60 thing, feeling very wonky about it.  But today I woke up and it’s okay.  So much to be thankful for and so much to look forward too !!!  My Connie (Connor) is getting married in a few weeks so I’ll be the Mother of the Groom.  Isn’t that just the best picture ❤  I absolutely love it ❤fullsizeoutput_4afb I really should put up my favorite song of all time.  It is the theme song for me and the husband.  I tear up every time I hear it. The video is dated, but it’s all about the music and the song ❤ 


Hopefully I’ll get the dance thing done i.e. the Country 2-Step.  A road trip Y A Y !!!  Our best friends forever will be going and I’m so excited about that.  They really are part of my family and we love them dearly ❤  We are staying at my favorite hotel in the world.  Just think Gone With the Wind and those beautius stairs…I’m still trying to get the husband to carry me up those stairs but I don’t want to kill him.

The Stairs
Rumor has it these are the stairs used in my favorite movie, “Gone With the Wind.” 🙂

So I’ll be back later, I just felt like putting up a post today.  I just feel so good and I am so happy and life is really great.  So today is Fantastic Friday and I’m in love with my life.  I am blessed ❤  Thanks for stopping by.  I’m going to try to do SoCS too, but me and the husband (artist/not his day job) are showing off some of his pictures at an Art Fair.  How cool is that !! IMG_3046

This picture is one of the pictures entered in the art fair.  It’s part of a set.  This is the, “Piano Man” in his Jazz Band Collection and  the other one thats entered is the featured picture on this post.  He’s really good and it’s only a matter of time til he’s discovered.  That’s not why he paints though, he just loves to create.  He says he sees a picture and he just has to paint it.  Yes that’s what an artist would say. I love all of his work ❤ it is absolutely stunning and beautius.  

So a very busy weekend and a real busy end of the month/beginning of a new month.  I’m so happy I live where there are October’s…This is my absolute favorite time of the year til the snow flies at least.  Winter is not my thing.  Oh one more thing, I’m moving into an amazing new place and I am so happy about that.  More on that in a future post…Happy TGIF and blessings bloggers ❤

Song Lyric Sunday

Good afternoon to all my blogger song lyric sunday fan’s !!!  Y A Y  Really loving this challenge every Sunday.  The Song Lyric Sunday Prompts for today are, “Floor/House/Roof/Walls”.  I’m going with Wall…although this one really could be Ceiling but Lionel does reference wall in here once or twice 😉

Dancing on the Ceiling

What is happening here
Something’s going on that’s not quite clear
Somebody turn on the lights
We’re gonna have a party
It’s starting tonight
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
The room is hot and that’s good
Some of my friends came by from the neighborhood
The people startin’ a climb the walls
Ooh it looks like everybody is having a ball
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Come on!
Everybody start to lose control
When the music is right
If you see somebody hangin’ around
Don’t get uptight
The only thing we want to do tonight
Is go ’round and ’round
And turn upside down
Come on! Let’s get down!
So come on! Let’s get loose
Don’t hold back
‘Cause ain’t no use
Hard to keep your feet on the ground
‘Cause when we like to party
We only want to get down
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Say what?
Can’t stop now
Just getting started
Everybody clap your hands
Come on
Everybody let’s dance
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we’re dancing on the ceiling baby baby
We gonna dance all night
Thank you for this fun prompt Mr. Jim from A Unique Title For Me.  You should go check out his blog…It’s a really great song and video and makes me just want to get up and dance along.  Happy Song Lyric Sunday…Let’s have a great Monday ❤  Blessings Blogger’s ❤ 

Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Song Lyric Sunday, Blogger friend’s…It’s almost over, Sunday that is and I’m way late for posting.  Please forgive me as I was very busy with the garage and throwing away so much stuff  !!!  Y A Y  

The Song Lyric prompt for today is…Drumroll pleazzzzzz …. “Bird/Fly/Sky/Wing”  This one was an easy one as the prompt is right up there with one of my favorite movies, “Beaches,” starring Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey.

I know this song is about a friendship between two girls, but the first time I heard of this song was from my guy ❤  He said it reminded him of me being his wife and the mother of his kids.  It brought a tear to my eye to think he thought of me as his hero.  It’s made for a really great love story because we are each other’s hero.  I love you husband and you are the wind beneath my wings..


My Forever ❤
The real hero in my life ♥️


When we were young


Wind Beneath My Wings
Ohhhh, oh, oh, oh, ohhh.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
To never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that’s your way.
You always walked a step behind.
So I was the one with all the glory,
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.
Did you ever know that you’re my hero,
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.
It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
But I’ve got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.
Did you ever know that you’re my hero?
You’re everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wing
I still really love this song ❤  It’s just so nice and brings me back to a wonderful time in my life ❤ …

Song Lyric Sunday…

Today’s Prompt…“Cowboy/Gun/Hat/Horse/Western”  This is the song from the movie, “True Grit,” which is also the name of the song.  Who Knew 😉  When I saw the prompt I immediately thought of America’s greatest cowboy !!!  ❤ John Wayne ❤  The song is by performed by the the late great Mr. Glen Campbell…

True Grit
One day, little girl, the sadness will leave your face
As soon as you’ve won you’ll fight to get justice done
Some days little girl you’ll wonder what life’s about
But other’s have known few battles are won alone
So, you’ll look around to find
Someone who’s kind, someone who is fearless like you
The pain of it will ease a bit
When you find a man with true grit
One day you will rise and you won’t believe your eyes
You’ll wake up and see
A world that is fine and free
Though summer seems far away
You will find the sun one day
Thanks you again for the prompt Mr. Jim…Happy 3 Day Weekend, Happy Fall

Post a video of a song that reminds you of a loved one…I’m thinking that this is probably one of the songs that made me fall in love with the husband.  We are all about music and singing.  I remember hearing this song and not really paying that much attention to it or who was the artist singing until I watched him (the boyfriend now husband of 40 years, he didn’t know I was watching him sing or he probably would have stopped. He was shy like that but he likes to sing as do I) sing this song.  He just seemed very cool when he was singing.  He probably was smoking too as it was back in the day when we all did that and cigarettes were .50 cents a pack 😉   I didn’t say we were the smartest generation, but we were probably one of the coolest 😉 .

Post a video of a song that mentions a food or drink.  This one’s for you husband…I love you and it’s been real for the last 40 !!!  Let’s do this again for another 40 !!!  Happy, Happy Anniversary.  I’ll always be your girlfriend ❤ .

Post a video of a song that talks about rain or sunshine.  This was one of those disco songs from the 70’s I think…Loved to dance it out with this one ❤ .  I’m really going back in the day with this weekly song challenge …Maybe it was a simpler time for me and it just feels good like an old shoe or shirt.

I hope that enjoyed the music for today…It’s Labor Day Weekend, prayer’s and blessings for all down in Florida.  Be Safe and remember don’t try to reason with hurricane season !!!!  Summer’s over Mr. Knightlinger 😉 .  Oh and I’m tagging you and you.  Have a great Thursday ❤ .

Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Song Lyric Sunday Blogger’s…Today’s prompt from Jim is another great one, “Dream/Lullaby/Sleep.”  I’m going to go with Dream from probably my favorite musical of all time…Les Miserables.  My song this Sunday is, “I Dreamed A Dream.”  This recording was done by the amazing Idina Menzel and Lea Michelle.  There are many recordings of this and they are all so great I had a hard time choosing which one.  I think the mom & the daughter one got me though ❤ . 

I Dreamed a Dream
There was a time when men were kind
When their voices were soft
And their words inviting
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong
I dreamed a dream in times gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed, that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted
But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame
He slept a summer by my side
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came
And still I dream he’ll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather
I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I’m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream
I dreamed
This is such a great musical and the movie was pretty darn good too.  Hoping everyone is having a great weekend and a happy start to their week ❤  Happy Song Lyric Sunday Blogger’s ❤   I thought I might also just sneak an original oil painting the husband did b/c he titled it, ” And The Tiger’s Come At Night.”  (he used some of the lyrics from this song, one of his favorite musicals too 🙂 “
And The Tiger’s come at Night
Let’s have the best week ever !!!  Blog on…

The Songs

Post a video of a song that’s perfect when you’re feeling overwhelmed.   I always pray when I’m feeling overwhelmed.  I can’t think of a better song to listen to ❤ . Oh and I just love, love, love Andrea Bocelli ❤ .

Post a video of a song you’d find humorous if it came on while making whoopie.  This is an amazing song and Tina Turner really rocks it.  I don’t think many know just how hard it is to sing and dance it out like she does, and at the same time…Crazy Talent !!!  I absolutely love her legs and can she dance.  W O W

Post a video of a protest song.  I love this guy ❤  and this song !!!

He also sings, “The Search is Over.”  At one of his concerts, we arrived late and were walking by the stage when he was singing this song and he walked down and kissed me (on the cheek 😉 ) in front of the entire audience !!!  It was the thrill of a lifetime and I will never forget it ❤ .

Patti & Jim Peterik/The Ides of March
