Battle of the Bands

#BoTB results with Random Christmas Giggles

Purrs and hooowdys, Kittens & Dawgs!  This is DH’s off Friday, so I you won’t find me touring Blogosphere today.  Of course, I have to report on last week’s Battle of the Bands featuring The Sound of Strings for a Silent Night showdown and to share some giggles.

All three string renditions of “Silent Night” are worthy to hear and to enjoy. The first mewsical instrument, the acoustic guitar is soothing like a lullaby for the newborn King. The second, the ukulele posses an innocence quality as in the babe lying in a manger. The third, the violin is beautiful conjuring visions of angels in the heavenly sky standing watch over baby Jesus. Any and all of these are winners, there truly is no loser with your pick.  I think the one that speaks to my heart is the ukulele.

The final tally…

Rafael Scarfullery (guitar) – 3
Michael Lynch (ukulele) – 3 includes my vote
Taylor Davis (violin) – 7

The victory belongs to Taylor Davis! *applauds*

 

 

Are you pulling your hair out yet? The holidays can be a real hair puller, so here’s a few more Friday Sillies to break the stress, so breathe, relax, and enjoy the Christmas season! 😉

 

This reminds me of a comment DD#1 made after we got home from the hospital with her baby sister and she wouldn’t stop crying. She said to me, “Turn off, Mommy! Turn off!” Sorry kiddo, there’s no off switch on this baby doll. 🙂

 

I’m really not a Grumpy Cathy, but you gotta admit that’s funny!

That’s a wrap for now. I’ll leave you with another “Silent Night” rendition featuring the winner of Dec. 15th BoTB, Taylor Davis with the vocals performed by Home Free.

 

One more thing, I know many won’t be in Blogosphere including myself on Monday but I will have my “all things Christmas” edition up for anyone wishing to hit the dance floor with Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me!

 

X💋X💋, Cathy

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.

    NIce “Silent Night” here… That Grumpy Cat… Oh, My!

    I did my first BOTB today… It was just a Facebook Update, not even a Note.

    You were in there, sort of, in a Cat Lady way.

      Myke,

      You threw up a BoTB on FB? Well…I’ll have to stop by to check it out. We went to some western North Carolina communities not too far from Asheville. It was a nice day spent in the mountains enjoying the Christmas light displays. Thanks for stopping by. Now, I’m off to see what you shared. 🙂

      Sandee,

      Thanks! I’ve been away all day, just now getting to where I can respond to comments. I guess I’ll have to wait until tomorrow to visit everyone. It’s late. Thanks for linking me up today, my friend!

    Hi, Cathy!

    What a pretty greeting card there at the end! I love it. I congratulate you on garnering a fairly even distribution of votes in your three-way BOTB. I agree that all three instruments/renditions are enjoyable. In the end I guess I am more of a guitar person than a violin person and that’s why I went with Rafael. I enjoyed your Friday Sillies. A pet can get mighty jealous when a newborn human enters the picture and invades its territory. Fortunately, more often than not, the animal instinctively bonds with the infant and is protective of it. That’s how it was with our dog Toto. Over the years we knew she could be trusted around babies that were brought into the house.

    Merry merry merry Christmas to you and your family, dear friend Cathy!

      Tom,

      Thanks for stopping by with all the things going on with Christmas and an unplanned moved, my friend. Guitar mewsic is always beautiful and I’m not sure I can say I prefer one over the other. I think it’s the way the individual string instrument moves me that I’m pulled to like the ukulele. I really grabbed my heart but the guitar and violin were equally nice. I agree generally most animals do bond with babies and are quit protective. I’m glad to hear that your beloved Toto is no exception and has taken up with the children in your home. All my best to you and your family for a very Merry Christmas!

      Lee, I didn’t know how this one would go down for sure. I figured the violin or guitar would carry most of the votes but I was proven wrong on that one. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll be by to see you soon!

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