Song Lyric Sunday

Good Morning Song Lyric Sunday…Today’s prompt is drumroll please ******


When you’re alone, and life is making you lonely
You can always go
When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, things’ll be great when you’re
Downtown, no finer place for sure
Downtown everything’s waiting for you
Don’t hang around and let your problems surround you
There are movie shows
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You’ll be dancing with him too before the night is over
Happy again
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, where all the lights are bright
Downtown, waiting for you tonight
Downtown, you’re gonna be alright now
Downtown, downtown
And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along
So maybe I’ll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
So go downtown, things’ll be great when you’re
Downtown, don’t wait a minute for
Downtown, everything’s waiting for you
Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown
Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown
I put up the first song that comes to mind. ¬†I guess I must be showing my age, but in my defense I think my parent’s use to like this song … ūüėČ
There you have my choice for ¬†Song Lyric Sunday and I here’s my Pingback for Mr Jim¬†…¬†Time for Sunday Dinner, a¬†favorite of mine and I’m really loving Sunday evenings. Let’s¬†have a great week Blogger’s. ¬†

Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Song Lyric Sunday, even though it’s Monday Morning…I’m just a bit late, Mr. Jim. Loving this prompt. ¬†Enjoyed yours, love John Fogerty ‚̧

The Prompts for yesterday was …
October 27, 2019 ‚Äď Lost/Found/Hide/Seek

I was thinking about it all day and then finally came up with this. ¬†It’s also from one of my favorite movies, “Top Gun,” ¬†You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling.

You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’
You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
And there’s no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You’re trying hard not to show it
But baby, baby I know it
You lost that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
You lost that lovin’ feelin’
Now it’s gone, gone, gone, woh
Now there’s no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you
And now you’re starting to criticize little things I do
It makes me just feel like crying
‘Cause baby, something beautiful’s dyin’
You lost that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
You lost that lovin’ feelin’
Now it’s gone, gone, gone, woh
Baby, baby, I’d get down on my knees for you
If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah
We had a love, a love, a love you don’t find everyday
So don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t let it slip away
Baby, baby, baby, baby
I beg you please, please, please, please
I need your love, need your love
I need your love, I need your love
So bring it on back, so bring it on back
Bring it on back, bring it on back
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
‘Cause it’s gone, gone, gone
And I can’t go on, woh
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
‘Cause it’s gone, gone, gone

Safe Travels…

Happy TGIF blogger’s. Can’t believe October is almost over. ¬†The weeks¬†just fly by. ¬†Wasn’t looking forward to this week. ¬†The husband went out to San Diego on business this week. I was suppose to¬†go, but changed my mind at the last minute. ¬†It ¬†was only for 3 days and nothing out there I really¬†want to see or do. ¬†I hate flying because it’s so easy to catch something and get sick. ¬†So in the end it just would not have been worth it. ¬†I’m not a fan of the West Coast. ¬†Have been to California once and was not impressed. ¬†Sorry all you Californian’s. ¬†I just don’t like the state. ¬†Someone once told me it might even be cursed. ¬†That was enough for me. ¬†I like, LOVE ‚̧ my East Coast. ¬†My family is out on the East Coast so that’s really like my 2nd home. ¬†Probably will end up out there someday. ¬†Love the Atlantic Ocean and the weather. ¬†All the way from Maine down to Florida and the Carolina’s¬†in-between. ¬†I could see us living out there.

Just a few things I want to share with you¬†from the Wedding…Our new daughter, Melissa, had a gift made especially for her new mom that really touched my heart. ¬†She is so thoughtful and loving ‚̧ ¬†They planned this whole wedding and the attention to the details really made it just so special. img_3499

It was this beautiful lacy, linen cloth…It reads as follows


You have raised your son with love and respect

And Blessed me with the man of my dreams.

I am forever grateful to you.

Thank you for

 welcoming me into your family


October 10, 2019

I was so touched with it and I have put it in just the most special place where I can see if everyday. ¬†It’s my happy place…My Desk ‚̧ ¬†She is a very special young lady and I am so happy to welcome her into our family. ¬†Thank you for sharing your life with us. ¬†I love you to the moon ‚̧ . Can’t wait for the holidays. ¬†We had such a great time last year with her family. ¬†That’s all for today. ¬†Looking forward to seeing the husband. ¬†It’ll be later, long flight from¬†California ‚̧ ¬†Happy Friday

My Corner of the World
In my own little corner, in my own little chair, I can be whatever I want to be ‚̧ ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†

Two for Tuesday

Good Morning Tuesday, hello fellow blogger’s ‚̧ ¬†It’s a great day to be alive, of course everyday is a great day to be alive. ¬†Today it’s going to be Two for Tuesday. ¬†I’m going to do some self promotion and get the Artist’s selling some of ¬†his painting’s. ¬†I hang them all over my home and they really make it home. ¬†I get to look at the pictures and think of him. ¬†He puts so much of him into each of ¬†his painting’s. I think some music would be good ‚̧

Today I’m going to post a couple of the painting’s we have in an exhibit at the local library. ¬†This is a real honor to hang his painting’s¬†where the world can now see them. ¬†I’m his biggest fan and I know (and have always known) that it’s just a matter of time until the right person sees it and everything is going to change. He will get to live his dream of being an artist. ¬†He say’s, “Death is always a good career move when your and artist,” speaking about an artist like¬†Vincent van Gogh. ¬†I¬†don’t accept that and I certainly¬†don’t¬†want that to be his next career move ūüėČ

We have sold some of his art work, and have a website on Amazon i.e. Handmade by Amazon…below is the link.

We also have some of his artwork on a FB page, I thought I’d put that link up too…

Here are my choices for Two for Tuesday. ¬†I hope you like them…


He loves boats and the water. ¬†He has done many pictures of both. The October apples is one he painted for me ‚̧ because he knows I love the Fall and October is my¬†favorite month. ¬†

I hope you’ll go check his work at the Amazon site. ¬†We are working¬†on a new website that is¬†strictly our’s…Elan Creations. ¬†I will keep you advised on it’s progress. ¬†One more thing…If you see a painting¬†you like, we can also make it into stationery i.e. cards or pretty much anything you would like. ¬†

That’s all for today. ¬†Have a great day and Happy Tuesday in your corner of the world ūüôā . ¬†Of course the Featured Image is also one of the Artist’s Masterpiece. This is one of my fav’s.

Monday’s Masterpiece…

Good Monday Morning blogger’s. ¬†Hope everyone had a restful and productive weekend. ¬†They go by way too fast, but we got so much done !!! Doing Fall space cleaning and getting ready to decorate Kitchen, Living Room and Dining Room for the holidays. ¬†Not sure about the details but I am looking forward to them so Y A Y for me…

Today we are going over to the local Public Library and setting up an exhibition of the Artist’s work. ¬†They are giving us an entire wall so we are very¬†excited about that. ¬†After we get it all set up, I will post the exhibit. ¬†Being an artist is hard and it’s all about getting seen and baby steps. ¬†Very excited though…

Here are a couple of his latest works. ¬†This first one speaks for itself, “The King.”

The King

These next two are of the Last Supper. ¬†He’s still got one more panel to do. ¬†This first panel is kind of interesting.The Last Supper/Apostles (Patti & Mike)

He said he got the inspiration for this image was our picture. ¬†He is the apostle on the right with the folded hands. ¬†Now obviously he was not an apostle and that’s suppose to be me, resting my head on his shoulder. ¬†Looks nothing like me ūüėČ . ¬†Below is the picture he was using for his inspiration, IDW. ¬†Who knows how Artist’s¬†process stuff.Patti & Mike

I’m thinking this next panel is in the middle. ¬†It is Jesus with more of the Apostle’s. ¬†That Apostle in the red is obviously Judas because he has the bag of gold he got for turning Jesus in. ¬†It’s all in¬†the details. ¬†His painting’s are never boring ‚̧ .

Jesus & The Apostles/The Last Supper

Hope you enjoy his¬†Masterpiece that’s in progress. ¬†He really is so very talented. ¬†He does enjoy painting a lot of religious pictures. Have a great week blogger’s.

Below is how it looks sitting on my fireplace mantel…He keeps the unfinished paintings up there right in front of him so he can look at them when he’s in the living room watching T.V. Just a little trivia about the artist ūüėČ .

Three different shots as my camera can’t get the entire thing in it’s window…

Happy Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Song Lyric Sunday blogger’s. ¬†Todays prompt is¬†‚ÄúLean/Sit/Stand.‚ÄĚ It come from Mr. Jim¬†¬†I always do the first song that comes to mind so for today’s prompt it’s¬†going to be, “I’ll Stand By You,” by The Pretenders… ¬†I’m also really digging the new badge for Song Lyric Sunday !!! ¬†Very Wonky ūüėČ ¬†That’s my new favorite word …

It’s a feel good song for me. ¬†It reminds me of friendship’s and strength. ¬†We are not alone in this world. ¬†There is always an answer and if He brings you to it, He’ll get you through it ‚̧ ¬†That’s my thought for this Sunday. ¬†I hope you enjoy this song for today. ¬†Stop by tomorrow because it’s¬†going to be Masterpiece Monday. ¬†The artist has been working on many new projects and I’ll think you will enjoy them. ¬†Blessings to you for this Sunday and Happy Monday ‚̧ .

I’ll Stand By You
Oh, why you look so sad, the tears are in your eyes,
Come on and come to me now, and don’t be ashamed to cry,
Let me see you through, ’cause I’ve seen the dark side too.
When the night falls on you, you don’t know what to do,
Nothing you confess could make me love you less,
I’ll stand by you,
I’ll stand by you, won’t let nobody hurt you,
I’ll stand by you
So if you’re mad, get mad, don’t hold it all inside,
Come on and talk to me now.
Hey there, what you got to hide?
I get angry too, well, I’m alive like you.
When you’re standing at the cross roads,
And don’t know which path to choose,
Let me come along, ’cause even if you’re wrong
I’ll stand by you,
I’ll stand by you, won’t let nobody hurt you,
I’ll stand by you.
Baby, even to your darkest hour, and I’ll never desert you,
I’ll stand by you.
And when, when the night falls on you baby,
You’re feeling all a lone, you’re wandering on your own,
I’ll stand by you.
I’ll stand by you, won’t let nobody hurt you,
I’ll stand by you, baby even to your darkest hour,
And I’ll never desert you,
I’ll stand by you,
I’ll stand by you.
I’ll stand by you, won’t let nobody hurt you,
I’ll stand by you, baby even to your darkest hour,
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you ¬†‚̧
