Saturday Songsuasion & Sillies #TheChrisBarron

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! I got a new follower recently who happens to be a singer. So, I checked out some of his music because frankly I was unfamiliar with him and that’s okay because I LOVE the discovery of new-to-me artists.

 

 Chris Brown is best known as the lead singer of the band Spin Doctors. What you maybe didn’t know is that long before he was that goofy guy in the hat on MTV, he was an even goofier kid with an acoustic guitar. Chris plays nifty chords on an old Gibson to masterfully crafted songs that are poignant yet wistful and funny, all the while singing in a manner that’s sweet and somewhat different from what you would expect if you only knew his hits, “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes”. Live, his stage patter is almost as entertaining as his singing. A powerful story-teller, at once hilarious and thought-provoking, Chris sets up his songs with anecdotes from a life on the road, from opening for and encountering legends like the Rolling Stones to Polar expeditions. He says, “I don’t really think about what I’m going to say beforehand. I just say stuff and if it goes over well, I say more stuff like that later.” A founding member of a band that’s loved by millions of people the round world over, Chris’ solo shows have all the lyric poetry and singing virtuosity that Spin Doctors fans appreciate along with a range of expression and songwriting that will delight and surprise.
Well, I’m delighted to meet Chris. His music style definitely fits my ear. How about you? Here’s another album for your listening pleasure!

 

Is Chris Brown new to you, as he is to me? I hope you enjoyed his music as much I did and if you want to stay ahead of the game, then you can follow him on Twitter and Facebook.

Now for your weekly dose of medicine laughter. I have to warn you, it’s definitely habit-forming!

I spotted this on Facebook.

What’s got you giggling?

This past #WW, I shared a gnarled tree from the Blue Ridge Parkway that I captured and it inspired me to get creative.

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.

      Les, Spin Doctors is new-to-me, but I know it’s just a me thing and everyone else on the planet has heard of him. Okay, maybe not everyone. But, that’s the way I feel. lol So, glad you liked the photo-art. Now, if only I can actually capture a moment like this, eh? Snoopy came to mind when I read, “it was a dark and stormy night….” and it put a smile on my face.

      Madilyn…you, too?! I like Chris’ style, too. Yeah, that Smart car funny cracked me up, too. I think my son shared that picture on Facebook and that’s where I got it. We always laugh when we see the Smart and say something like you can can fit two Smarts in one parking space, which isn’t too far off. They really are small, so you can imagine what it’s like for one of them, if they run over pebble. Just imagine being on a bicycle…a total disaster, right? Well, in Smart it has be nearly as bad. lol Okay, I’m being plain silly, but that’s okay. 😀

💕I love comments! Have a purrfect day & thanks for stopping by!💕
