Take a Little Ride with the #4M crew #music

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

 

Good morning, Kittens and Dawgs! It’s fabulous to see you! Are you ready to groove to some mewsic?  Our theme this week is songs about  “Vehicles – Cars or Trucks or Boats” but we’re not finicky if you have tunes to share then we’re ready to boogie with you and we invite you step on the dance floor with  XmasDolly, Stacy, Colette, and little ole me!

 

Our car (2003) is reliable and getting really old but don’t tell her that! She’s a Toyota need I say more? While I’d love to have a new car, I’ve always secretly or not so wanted a truck. You know there’s so much you can do with a truck. Hayrides or making-out camping in the truck bed, off-road drivin’, haulin’ large stuff home or movin’  into a new place (that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout!). There’s somethin’ ’bout a truck!

 

 

If I had a truck ole yeah, I could do all the things above and more!

 

This is a weekly hop for mewsic enthusiasts regardless if you follow our weekly theme or not if you have mewsic to share then we’re ready to dance with you. Otherwise, I ask that you do not link non-mewsic posts below to boost traffic to your site. You’re welcome to leave your URL in comments with a brief description inviting me to check it out. Thank you!



 

 

Do you have a truck?

Would you like a truck?

What would you do with a truck?

Have you camped in the bed of a truck?

What mewsic moves you today? ?

I’m joining my pal, Annie, for another edition of “Sparks” and this is what she says about her new meme series…

I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!

 

Last week was hard. I found out something I didn’t like, so I dedicate today’s encouragement to those dealing with a painful life.

 

At the present I have somethings up in the air. I don’t know how things will play out, so if I’m slow to dance with you then know I will stop by to boogie with you soon! Also with things up in the air I’m not sure if tomorrow’s post will make it. If you don’t see one then, life has taken precedent and blogging is on hold temporarily.  You can always join my email subscription to get the latest “Curious as the Cathy” mews straight to your inbox. Have a tunetastic day!

X💋X💋, Cathy

Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree #BOTB Results

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Hello Kittens and dawgs! I’m gonna keep today’s post short.  It’s Sunday after all! 😉  My last BoTB showdown was lopsided big time, not at all like I expected. I figured one of the artists would carry more votes than the other but most of them? No, no, no! Did I do a poor job throwing BBC in the ring with the Shoo-Bop Girls?

The winner of “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” showdown is…. you guessed it, The Shoo-Bop Girls!  I’ll leave ya with this short playlist.

 

 

The fun continues with more epic battles underway and I invite you to visit the official manager of BoTB, Stephen for the update list of players.

I hope you’ll join me tomorrow on the dance floor for “car or truck or boat” songs with the Monday’s Music Moves Me gang!

Have a songtastic day!

#Halloween Vintage Slightly Creepy & Weird Spooky Photos

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Hello, Boos and Ghouls! Given life’s schedule, I meant to share this on in my Halloween edition of Throw Back ThursdayThat didn’t happen. Anywho, in my TBT post I shared some childhood memories of vintage masks, treat bags, candy and more and today I thought why not look at some vintage slightly creepy and weird spooky photos but first….let’s set the mood.

Hit the play button before proceeding any further.

 

 

How can a group of kids look so creepy dressed like bats is behind me and yet I get creepied out looking at this photo. According to the this picture dates to the 1920s.

Some one remarked that these costumes were not on creepy but racists. I never understood the whole painting one’s face black, even in old movies or the theatre to portray a colored person ahem…Africian-American a white person applied what looked like black shoe polish to his/her face. Why didn’t they just hire black actors/actresses? Was it because of racial divide? Very bizarre!

Okay, menacing pumpkin heads on little kids sorta sends shivers up my spine.

 

This vantrilquist family is strangely spooky.

I love the photo play of these two old images. Someone had imagination, didn’t they?

 

Handkerchiefs covered face isn’t something I would think of as scary but I find this a bit disturbing.

Maybe it’s the way my brain perceives these B&W images which plays Halloween tricks on the mind but they really do have an eerie sense about them, don’t you agree? Come on be honest and tell me that these creeped you out…just a little?

That’s all for now. Have a good weekend. Check back tomorrow to see who won in “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” #BoTB showdown!

Hee Haw #humor, Grand Ole Opry #SWF, & Friendly Fill-ins

 

Purrs and howdys, Kittens & Dawgs! Last Friday, we returned to Nashville for the day. When I think of Tennessee’s capital city, I think about a big part of my childhood days spend in front of the TV watching the popular show Hee Haw.  Today’s Friday Sillies edition I thought I’d reminisce a bit with some of these giggles and hopefully bring a smile to your face.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For all you photo enthusiasts and Skywatch Friday fans, I’m sharing an iPhone8 capture from the end of last month on a gorgeous blue sky day in Nashville, Tennessee. There is just a hint of autumn color in the tops of the trees in the foreground of the Grand Ole Opry.

 

What are you celebrating?

Today, I Celebrate The Small Things like having a solid relationship with DH. I found out this week that some dear friends who I never thought this would happen to are divorcing. They are wonderful people and I hate this like crazy. I don’t know the situation and the details aren’t  important but we hope to continue being friends with each one regardless. No judgment here just love and prayers.

This has been one of those weeks where I know I have more reason to celebrate but because of things going on around us then it’s hard to cut through the fog to notice these blessings and giving thanks for all the small things.  That being said, I am truly blessed and am thankful for God’s goodness because without Him I don’t know how I’d make it through each day.

 

Might I impose on y’all one more time to say a special prayers our children? Something new with DD#1 happened this week, then as you may know DD#2 is moving to Portland Maine on Nov. 1st without housing or job. Her husband’s employer (Carmax) is opening soon up there and he’s been transferred to there. No company provisions are being made for their living arrangement or move.  They set up a GoFundMe account hopefully to offset some of their expenses. It never hurts to ask for help. Blessings to each of you!

 

 

 

Switching gears, I’m rounding things out with these Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by the lovely, Annie and Ellen!

 

  1. If I was a ghost, I would haunt the meanest, wickedest people.
  2. I always push circumstances from my thoughts when something looks or sounds bad because giving a place in my mind for these things is exhausting emotionally and physically and leads to sickness.
  3. My favourite scary story is …hmmm, I don’t know. I don’t believe I have a favorite.
  4. I will be so glad when the clouds hanging over those I love dissipate and sunny blue skies return which in turns make my life happier, too.

 

 

 

 

That’s a wrap for now but I hope to see you on the dance floor with songs about cars or trucks on Mondays Mewsic Moves Me!  X💋X💋, Cathy!

Temporarily Away

Okay, Kitties & Pups, I need to step away from Blogosphere for a few days.

Not to worry, all is well! However, do you recall from a couple of weeks ago when I said,  I’m giddy? Well…that surprise has my attention and hopefully in a few days I can share the mystery.

Have a good weekend. I’ll see ya around the cyber block soon and please stop in tomorrow for a full-packed edition of Friday Fun Stuff! 😉
