Musical Monday # 27

Musical Monday   I was introduced to Musical Monday by Delores who copied the meme from another site. I think it’s a fun way to show off some of the music we like and brighten up our Mondays at the same time.  I’ll be finding my clips on you tube , so will simply credit that site since there are often so many versions of everything and I wouldn’t want to accidentally credit the wrong artist. Today’s clip is: Trisha Yearwood "She's In Love With The Boy" My ipods have more songs by Trisha Yearwood than any other singer and here are the lyrics: happy singing!

Sunday Selections # 191

Welcome back to Sunday Selections! This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock , as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs. The rules are very simple:- 1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title 2. link back to me, River , somewhere in your post 3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted. 4. hop on over to TheElephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.   Andrew often joins in. So does Jackie K  and Kakka  I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I'm continuing with some photos of my front porch garden. a gorgeous purple anemone , a little blurry, but what does one do when the breeze won't stop blowing?   this the first anemone I've ever seen in this deep blue colour. pots of mixed colour freesias with ta

Angel's Antics

Not much in the way of antics , more lazy cat days, so this will be the final Angel's Antics post. I'll still put up photos occasionally, but most Saturdays now will be rest days for me, just like my Time-Out Tuesdays.   Aaah! Relaxation time. there she is with that camera again. anything going on out there? Nope, okay, might as well eat dinner. if I pretend I can't see her, maybe she will go away? still not looking... alright,  you can pat me. now I'd like to sleep if that's okay with you. you still here? well then, I'll pose nicely one more time, but then you have to go away. Okay?  And I did. Go away that is.

Wednesday's Words on a Friday

On Wednesdays , Delores, from Under The Porch Light , has a word challenge meme which she calls “Words for Wednesday” . She puts up a selection of six words which we then use in a short story, or a poem. I’m hopeless at poetry so I always do a story. It’s a fun challenge…why not join in? This week's words are: 1. insightful 2. believer 3. testosterone 4. graduated 5. disperse 6. firefly we also have : little feet with big boots to fill , which I haven't used this week. Here is my story:   No one needed to be particularly insightful . We all knew what would happen when those testosterone fuelled year 12 boys graduated at the end of the school year. They had been making plans for months now. A huge graduation party, a costume party, with all attending to be dressed as a character from the current favourite Sci-Fi TV show, Firefly .  It would be a rowdy affair, as it always was, boisterous, rambunctious young men letting thei
