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 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.
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 🙂
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. However, David Blayney (ZZ Top stage manager for 15 years) explains in his book 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.

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 😉 …
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 ❤
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… 😉
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 ❤ .
