Mama Dollar & Papa Dollar

Good Monday morning blogger’s, I hope everyone is getting ready to have a great week and preparing for the Holidays !!!  I know I’m really looking forward to them.  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, Matthew, Connor and his new wife Melissa our new daughter-in-law, made it home.  We celebrated with dinner at the husband’s favorite restaurant in the city, Chicago Cut.  He’s a salesman and that’s where he takes all of his customers.  He’s got his own table with killer views of the city.  Very impressive and I know that always makes him feel good to share this with the family.

I also got to kill two birds with one stone and create our family’s Christmas Card which is always a great thing to do and get it done early…

Merry Christmas card 2019 🎄🎄

I think it turned out great !!! My favorite thing about it is #frainsthename, thank you so much Melissa.  She’s the one who came up with that and I just love it.

Of course it’s going to be a long week because it’s the holiday’s so the funds are low, if  you know what I mean.  Of course the husband has it covered so it’s all good.  Here’s what the week kind of looks like from one of my favorite movies…

I have plenty to do around here while I wait for, “Mama Dollar and Papa Dollar.”  It will be my planning week.  Making lists, setting up my planner and Christmas TN and getting the Christmas Cards mailed.  My Christmas TN planner I ordered from India !!!  It’s the featured image of this post (isn’t it beautius ??  I just love it).  I kept the package and everything it came in just because it was from India…OMG  I hope your preparations for the holidays are going good and not to stressful.  Just about finished with the decorations and things are shaping up.  I’ll post some pics when I’m finished.  My Christmas list is long and I hope Santa is feeling generous this year 😉  Pretty sure he is, because he rarely disappoints.  

Merry Christmas

 

Song Lyric Sunday…Legs

Good Song Lyric Sunday Morning fellow music blogger’s.  Today’s prompt comes from Mr. Jim Arms/Elbows/Knees/Legs.  Knew right where I was going with this one 🙂

Legs
She’s got legs, she knows how to use them
She never begs, she knows how to choose them
She’s holdin’ leg wonderin’ how to feel them
Would you get behind them if you could only find them?
She’s my baby, she’s my baby
Yeah, it’s alright
She’s got hair down to her fanny
She’s kinda jet set, try undo her panties
Everytime she’s dancin’ she knows what to do
Everybody wants to see if she can use it
She’s so fine, she’s all mine
Girl, you got it right
She’s got legs, she knows how to use them
She never begs, she knows how to choose them
She’s got a dime all of the time
Stays out at night movin’ through time
Oh, I want her, said, I got to have her
The girl is alright, she’s alright

Trivia on Legs…Although all three members of ZZ Top are credited with playing on the track, only Gibbons was actually present; engineer Terry Manning was responsible for all the musical parts save the lead guitar.[4] However, David Blayney (ZZ Top stage manager for 15 years) explains in his book[5] Sharp Dressed Men that the pumping synthesizer effect in “Legs” was introduced in pre-production by Linden Hudson. During the final tracking sessions, Terry Manning (final Eliminator tracking engineer) called Linden Hudson and asked how he did the synth effects for “Legs”, although Terry could have easily pulled it off if he needed to.

The single remix of “Legs” is much more synthesizer-driven than the album version (although a synthesizer can be heard throughout the latter, it is toned down). There is also a three-note guitar riff heard throughout most of the album version of “Legs”, and it is a minute longer than the single version

I thought this was a song from my 70’s generation but it was actually in the 80’s, 1984 to be exact.  The 80’s were a blur to me as I was always having a baby or nursing a baby or doing something with a baby ❤  1982, 1984, 1985, 1988 yes and we carried it into 1992 OMG !!!  Probably that’s why I really don’t remember much that was happening in the world in the 80’s.  

Make sure you check out my fellow blogger’s Song Lyric Sunday Mr. John.  He always has great music from the past ❤  Thank you for sharing your love of music.  Always learn something new from visiting your blog ❤

Enjoy what’s left of the weekend and let’s have a great week ❤  Blessings to all of my fellow Blogger’s ❤

Song Lyric Sunday

Happy December…Y A Y   We had a wonderful Thanksgiving !!!  I hope all my blogger friends did too.  Family, food and so much fun, I am truly blessed.  I’ll post about all of the festivities later, now onto Song Lyric Sunday.

The prompt for today comes from Mr. Jim/newepicauthor “Chin/Ears/Eyes/Face/Mouth/Nose.”  Today’s Song will be, “These Eyes” by the Guess Who.  Really one of my fav’s a group from the 70’s. The husband just informed me that this band is still going, different members though.  Burton Cummings wrote many of the songs and Randy Bachman went onto (Bachman Turner Overdrive)…Just a little factoid i.e. trivia to pack away if you need it someday 😉 …

These Eyes
These eyes, cry every night for you
These arms, long to hold you again
The hurtings on me, yeah
I will never be free, no, my baby, no no
You gave a promise to me, yeah
And you broke it, and you broke it, oh no
These eyes watched you bring my world to an end
This heart could not accept and pretend
The hurtings on me, yeah
I will never be free, no, no, no
You took the vow with me, yeah
And you spoke it, and you spoke it, babe
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, cry every night for you
These arms, these arms long to hold you, hold you again
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Don’t ya know these…

Enjoy your Sunday blogger’s and all of the leftovers from turkey day.  Christmas is on its way.  Already have two Christmas movies under my belt, “We’re No Angels” starring Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov and Aldo Rey.  Leo G. Carol was the shop keeper, from 1955.  Of course this is the first time I watched, “It’s A Wonderful Life !”  I know I’ll watch it a number of times this holiday season…Great Movie.
Weather is getting wonky, snow and cold and yes I’m afraid it’s winter.  We didn’t even get Indian Summer this year 😦 .

Share Your World, Y A Y

1. What did you have for dinner last night?  

 Went out and got a Cheeseburger from a favorite diner we go too…Love the milkshakes and cheeseburgers and fries of course ❤  The best was with my true love ❤

2.  Would you rather go out on a Saturday night or stay in?  

I would really rather stay in with my guy.  We just like to watch a good movie and snuggle.  It’s that time of year.   Of course if our hockey guys are in town then definitely go to the game !!!

3.  How are you, truthfully?   

Truthfully, I’m hanging in there.  Life’s not perfect but it’s okay.  I’m healthy and loved.  I have a warm place to live with my family.  I have great friends  and it’s the holidays.  Special time with my guys and our family grew so I have another girl to shop with Y A Y ❤

4. What’s the best topping/ice cream combination?  If you don’t eat ice cream, what’s your favorite combination dessert?  (Example: pie and ice cream or pie and whipped cream – that sort of answer)  

 I’m thinking just give me Rocky Road.  It doesn’t even need a topping it’s so good, Y U M  ❤

Share Your Gratitude with a thought (quote), a picture or a short paragraph.  Most of us have lots to be grateful for, more than we might realize.   Happy Thanksgiving and have a great week.

It’s been a grand year.  Whenever your family grows, it is such a special time ❤

An Important Lesson

One very important lesson that I have learned in my life is from the age old question, “When a tree falls in the forest and there is no one around to hear it fall does it make any noise ??”   The answer, drum roll please …  That would be a huge N O !!!   Tune out all of the noise.   Be happy and live your life,.  Happy Thanksgiving.  Blessings ❤ 

Song Lyric Sunday

I’m getting this done right out of the box this Sunday Morning…Good morning blogger’s, it’s Song Lyric Sunday Y A Y.  Really this is one of my favorite challenges.  Love, love, love it.  My Chicago Blackhawks are really killing it ❤ they won last night 7/2 down in Nashville.  Very impressive !!!  I digress, let’s get this posted …

Song Lyric Sunday prompt is Did/Didn’t/Do/Don’t/Does/Doesn’t…brought to us by Mr. Jim

The husband came up with this one and I was really surprised this was Manfred Mann who recorded this song and I felt a little old.  I’m not liking this age thing so much, but I’ll get use to it I suppose… 😉  

 

Do Wah Diddy Diddy (Remastered 2007)
There she was just a-walkin’ down the street, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
Snappin’ her fingers and shufflin’ her feet, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
She looked good (looked good), she looked fine (looked fine)
She looked good, she looked fine and I nearly lost my mind
Before I knew it she was walkin’ next to me, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
Holdin’ my hand just as natural as can be, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
We walked on (walked on) to my door (my door)
We walked on to my door, then we kissed a little more
Whoa-oh, I knew we was falling in love
Yes I did, and so I told her all the things I’d been dreamin’ of
Now we’re together nearly every single day, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
A-we’re so happy and that’s how we’re gonna stay, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
Well, I’m hers (I’m hers), she’s mine (she’s mine)
I’m hers, she’s mine, wedding bells are gonna chime
Whoa-oh, I knew we was falling in love
Yes I did, and so I told her all the things I’d been dreamin’ of
Now we’re together nearly every single day, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
A-we’re so happy and that’s how we’re gonna stay, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
Well, I’m hers (I’m hers), she’s mine (she’s mine)
I’m hers, she’s mine, wedding bells are gonna chime
Whoa-oh-oh-oh, oh yeah
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do, we’ll sing it
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do, oh yeah, oh, oh yeah
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do

Let’s enjoy the last day of the weekend and let’s have a great Monday.  Check back for Masterpiece Monday, the Artist has been working alot this weekend.  Blessings Blogger’s on your Sunday ❤ .
