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 systemโ€™s manager. Thatโ€™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.

    Hi, Cathy!

    I had a late night last night because we were across the state attending our grandson’s Christmas choir concert. I needed to “sleep in” this morning.

    As Wiki points out, it is somewhat confusing because, in addition to this pop rock mewsic act Hanson, consisting of a band of brothers from Tulsa, there was also The Hanson Brothers, a Canadian punk rock band, and Hanson, a British rock band. However I do remember this Hanson group making a splash in the late 90s when they were a very young boy band that appealed primarily to girls. They have matured nicely and I enjoyed their holiday songs. Thank you for the play list.

    Have a great Tuesday, dear friend Cathy!

      Thanks for joining me this morning. Sometimes we need to sleep in a bit to feel more refreshed. I imagined the Hanson’s did appeal to young girls. I miss this tidbit provided by Wikipedia. That’s interesting there are two other groups with similar names. Have a good day! BTW, I’m sharing your link today in Friday’s post. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I do not remember the Hanson band but in their early years (1992-96) my kids were still quite young and really not forming too much of their own mewsic impressions yet. I didn’t have time to listen to the radio in those early years, either. So, I imagine that’s how they went undetected and by the time mine got old enough the group fell out of favor or the band members moved on to their solo careers. Now, I’m a little curious to know how each did on their own. Sounds like a potential post if you ask me. ๐Ÿ™‚
