Green Acres

Monday, August 22, 2011      5 comments

I really don't know why this tune has been stuck in my head the last couple of days! From the TV show starring Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor - on air from 1965 to 1971 Green acres is the place for me. Farm livin' is the life for me. ... Read more

Billy Boy

Sunday, August 21, 2011      3 comments

This is a traditional American folk song and nursery rhyme. There are many versions - lots of verses - I found this one on Wikipedia. Oh, where have you been, Billy Boy, Billy Boy? Oh, where have you been, Charming Billy? I have bee... Read more

Will You Love Me Tomorrow

Sunday, August 21, 2011      7 comments

After walking the pups tonight, I watched a recording of "Haven". The song at the end of the show was "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" (sometimes called "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow". Written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King and first recor... Read more

Shadows in the Moonlight

Saturday, August 20, 2011      6 comments

I took the pups on another evening walk tonight - on the way back, we stopped at a Sonic and I fed them some fries ... and, um, I had a ice cream shake. I should have had the small, but ... ah, well, there's always tomorrow (Mz Scarlett sez) ... Read more

Late September Dogs

Friday, August 19, 2011      6 comments

Melissa Etheridge recorded this one in 1988. I thought about it as I walked my mini-pack this evening and watched the clouds gathering in the sky (and it poured yesterday!) Just outside my window I hear the late September dogs And I unde... Read more

Toothless People

Thursday, August 18, 2011      10 comments

I took Spartacus in to get him nipped (neutered), chipped, clipped (toenails), and vaccinated. The vet tech talked me into getting his teeth cleaned today, too. That way, I can avoid paying full price in a couple of months for the dental anesthe... Read more

I Want a Dog

Tuesday, August 16, 2011      12 comments

I took the little stray to the vet today for preop lab work (he's fine). Looks like he's gained maybe half a pound - his ribs don't stick out quite so far now. Tomorrow he goes in to get nipped and chipped (and vaccinated). In a few months, we'l... Read more

Walk Right Back

Tuesday, August 16, 2011      3 comments

This one has been going thru my head as I walk the pups. Samurai and Shalako keep marching on. Little Spike isn't so sure - i think he's really afraid of the traffic on the streets. He does OK on the side streets, but cringes at the busier stree... Read more

A Summer Song

Sunday, August 14, 2011      2 comments

It's time for school to start again - big "back to school" sales at the stores, kids out frantically getting the last days of freedom playing on the sidewalks ... I don't have kids (all of mine have fur), but I feel for those who are not excite... Read more

Ever Have One of Those Days?

Sunday, August 14, 2011      6 comments

I've considered and discarded several ideas for a song blog. Too long, not clever, no pictures to go along with it, Not to mention, even Firefox is running slowly. ... Read more

I Love My Dog

Saturday, August 13, 2011      11 comments

My neighbor found a little (5 pounds) chihuahua on her porch yesterday. He had a collar, no tags. Since she's elderly, I told her I'd take him around to the neighbors to see if I could find his owners. One problem - at midday, there are very few... Read more

Ode to Billy Joe

Thursday, August 11, 2011      5 comments

It's not too often that a song really, really tells a story. Bobby Gentry amazed and amused us in 1967. Truth or fiction - and just what was it they threw off the Tallahatchie Bridge? It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta da... Read more

She Works Hard for the Money

Wednesday, August 10, 2011      2 comments

OK, I'm still on vacation, but ... I usually work hard for the money! Donna Summer 1983 She works hard for the money So hard for it, honey She works hard for the money So you better treat her right Read more

Brick House

Tuesday, August 09, 2011      2 comments

I've been hearing this on my MP3/radio every day while I'm out walking the pups - I know the lyrics are sexist, but I have to admit I boogie along while I'm listening to this song. The Commodores in 1977 [Chorus:] She's a brick ho... Read more

(Love is Like a) Heatwave

Tuesday, August 09, 2011      6 comments

It hit 98 today. I walked the pups this morning before 9 - it was getting hot on the way back. Later, I walked over to Golden Corral for dinner - the heat was rolling off the sidewalks and streets. The breeze was hot. Sheesh! Martha and the... Read more
