#HappyBirthdayAmerica edition

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

It’s so good to see you this morning, kittens & dawgs! Thank you for making me apart of your weekend. This morning’s music edition, I’d like to invite y’all to listen to two rock covers of our national anthem and vote for your favorite on #BOTB Star Spangled Banner Showdown ~ Spirit VS #MadisonRising.

 

I shared my#s-ART-urday photoart creation a bit early this week. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed with so many to-dos on my plate. Maybe I’ll be back into the swing of things next week or then maybe I won’t. Is this a sign that I need to step away for a week or two or three from blogging? Could be! Meanwhile, I’m gonna leave you with a few giggles and I hope your day is full of smiles!

#BOTB Star Spangled Banner Showdown ~ Spirit VS #MadisonRising

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

I thought it was only fitting for July 1st edition of BOTB to celebrate and honor our country’s hard fight against the Brits at Fort McHenry.

 

 

This version of the Star Spangled Banner is not to be considered in today’s showdown. I simply wanted to share it with you because of the swell of pride I felt listening to the story of the spirit of the American people and Francis Scott Key inspiration behind our national anthem.

I’m a traditionalist, especially when it comes to the national anthem. However, I decided to go against the natural order of things by picking two rock versions for this #BOTB Star Spangled Banner showdown ~ Spirit VS Madison Rising!

Long summer nights with country-rock #music

 

It’s officially summer, kittens & dawgs.Yea-haw! The rhythm of a tune sets the backdrop for long summer nights setting by the firelight, unwinding, and having fun. Can you feel the music? Oh yeah, country-rock music is moving me this morning!

A #fathersday tribute to my daddy #music

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! I hope all dads in Blogosphere have a special Father’s Day. I’m grateful that my daddy is still with me and for the sweet memories I have spent with him as a little girl. I dedicated this post to my daddy, as I Dance with my Father.

 

Luther Vandross is the author of this beautifully moving song. He wrote of his personal experiences with his dad who died when he was 7-years old from diabetes. He recorded it 2003, earning him Song of the Year and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. Although I love Vandross’ original cut, I decided to use Celine’s cover since a female voice spoke to my heart and best suited this tribute to my daddy.
