Which do you prefer, Driver’s Seat or being The Passenger? #4M

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good morning, kittens and dawgs! How was your weekend?  I can’t believe it’s Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer. In honor of our fallen heroes and their families, this song is for you.


Thank you for giving your all for this country and may God bless those you left behind! 🙏

XmasDolly (Marie) is still sick as a dog and weak as a kitten after her bout with pneumonia but her dance partners Stacy, Colette, and I will do our best to hold things down. Hopefully, we can keep everyone off table tops and shirts on with no calls to police for disturbing the peace. Buckle up and enjoy the ride, this week’s theme is “SONGS ABOUT CARS/RIDING”!



I’d like to know, where is this year going?  It’s driving past us like a Fast Car, that’s what’s happening!

 

 

What did you do over the holiday weekend, anything special? Was it like Heaven’s in The Backseat of Cadillac (Hot Chocolate) or Highway to Hell (AC/DC)?

Did you spend time traveling? Which do you prefer the Driver’s Seat or being The Passenger?

 

 

 

I prefer taking in the drive instead of being behind the wheel but regardless of how you like to Ventura Highway, I hope you’ll decide to join the 4M gals on the dance floor!

I’m continuing my relaxed blogging schedule, mostly breaking but not totally breaking away completely.  I hope you’ll come back on Thursday for Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow “Battle of the Bands” Showdown!

If you can dream it you can do it, Only in America #music tribute

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! Tomorrow is election day. Many of you are sighing with relief waiting for it to be all over. It’s been a wild ride but there’s so much on the line this time around. It’s more than Red VS Blue, Dems VS Repubs, or Left VS Right. It’s about keeping our way of life as Americans.

if-you-can-dream-it-1I thought it fitting to share songs of inspiration. Tunes that speak the American dream, and dreamin’ in red, white blue. When I was little I dreamed of being a teacher, a wife, a mommy, a nurse, an actress, a singer, and even the president.

Walt Disney said it best….

 

 

America is the land that dreams come from and hope for a better life.

 

Without dreams, hope is gone. This is the very reason Americans hold dear the ideas our country offers to every person.

 

My parents raised me with the idea of America’s greatest and while I didn’t understand everything, I knew people from other countries saw America as the promised land with aspirations of reaching her one day. I always felt America is the promised land.

 

Did you vote in Revolution #BoTB showdown yet? It’s not too late. The polls close tonight with the results shared tomorrow.  I’m linking with the 🎶 party hosted by the Monday’s Music Moves Me crew and you’re welcome to come with.  Thank you for including me in your Monday. You’re invited back tomorrow for a little Cathy Chats after you cast your presidential electoral vote.   🇺🇸 name-graphics-cathy-153844

Dear God, please keep ALL Americans safe at the polls and Your hand on the Trump’s & Pence’s families. There are a lot of wicked people among us. Steer the angry, hateful evil-doers away.  Place in each a strong resolve to do what’s right  for their families and America and finally I ask for Your protection on our election keeping it free from corruption. In His precious name I pray. Amen.

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

 

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! American pride is something we all have for our country and we love to show it on special occasions, but why wait? I think it’s good to show your colors for the red, white, and blue anytime of the year.

Over the years, I have gotten DH several patriotic shirts. He has two favorites ~ a waving flag Polo and a long-sleeve American flag shirt. These are beautiful shirts!

A week ago, he asked if I could get him a navy version of the waving flag and a slightly different version of the LS American flag shirt. I was able to order the Polo as requested. Who-hoo! The smaller sizes are out of stock for the other shirt until September. No worries, I’ll be sure to order at that time and who knows…maybe I’ll want something else then, too. 😀

So, why am I telling you all of this you say? Well… the owner of the company sent me an email thanking me for my recent purchase and asked that I tell my friends about them. So, being the girl next door that I am, I wanted to help spread the word.

The folks at The Flagshirt company have a great site filled with patriotic apparel for the whole family. They have tees, tanks, short-sleeve, long-sleeve, and sweatshirts, but they are more than shirt store. They have board shorts, bikini wear, beach towels, hats, flip-flops, and so much more. Show your American pride anytime, shop….

Count me in #America #AtoZChallenge #music

I decided this morning to take part in the 5th annual post challenge started by the late and dearly loved Tina Downey at Life is Good and Shannon Lawrence of The Warrior Muse. These days the Road Trip crew consists of Heather Gardner (The Waiting is the Hardest Part), C.Lee McKenzie (The Write Game), and Nicole A. (The Madlab Post).

In all honesty last year I attempted to take the A2Z Road Trip but bombed out. What went wrong? *scratch head* Oh yeah, I know what went wrong! My mind went wrong that’s what. You see, I kept forgetting to revisit the home site regularly. This time, I plan to set aside either a Tuesday or Thursday to commit myself to visit those on the 2015 sign-up list. I’m ready to hit the road, so count me in #America!

 

My goal is to visit a handful of post challenge nutballs, like myself, and to share my favorite passions ~ photography, music, and musings A to Z style each week with you. I hope you’ll tag along for the ride. WARNING!!! It might get a little bumpy and I may get lost along the way but hopefully, I will always find my way back. Grab a cup of joe. It’s time to buckle up and hit the open road!

Oh yeah, today DD#2 is a quarter of a century old. Do you think that will make her feel old? lol

Bald River Falls

 

Bald River Falls off Cherohala Skyway

Last week’s WW contribution was a view from the  Cherohala Skyway. This week, I am submitting for your pleasure another view that’s off the beaten path so to speak. Bald River Falls is situated about 4.5 off the Cherohala Skyway, but the drive is worth it. This photo is easily captured from your window, but I got out of the car before snapping my camera.

Being the somewhat perfectionist that I am, I try to incorporate musical inspiration to go along with my photo selection of the week. This doesn’t always work too well. Thus, I have decided a new routine in picking songs and that is to use musical talent from my favorite groups beginning with the letter of the alphabet. That being said, let me kick things off from the beginning. Now let’s flashback, Wayback Wednesdays style, A is for…

America

This 1974 song became this band’s 4th top-ten hit in the USA, spending three weeks in November at number four on the Billboard 100 Hits, just after ranking #1 in October on the Billboard easy listening chart.


Thanks for joining Angela from Mommy Time Out and I for another edition of Wayback Wednesdays. To participate in this blog hop you don’t have to follow a bunch of rules. It’s simple! Just link up your blog, twitter, or Facebook below (only one please).

You’ll find other #WW communities listed under my Photography Hops tab at the top of this page. It’s great to see you today! I hope this becomes a regular routine for you each week to share in my musical memories and my photo ops. Although, I’m a bit slow at making my rounds, I am faithful in visiting every one who stops by. Throw on a pot of coffee and I’ll be by your place soon!
