Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs! 😉 My friend, XmasDolly who puts on the Monday’s Music Moves Me 🎶 linky party is a bit short-handed and I volunteered to co-host as long for as long as she needs me. You’re invited to hit the dance floor. The theme this week is “your choice”.
How’s the new year treating you so far? What mewsic are you tuned into today? 😉
One more thing, if you’re the creative type and looking for more memes to connect with then Impulsive Artistry hosts the Monday meme Feeling Inspired? where you can share your photography, crafts, mewsic, and more posts.
In last week’s June in January #BoTB showdown it really wasn’t much of a battle because one artist led the entire time. I appreciate everyone who took the time to vote. The outcome between Julie London and Dean Martin swung heavily in favor of Ms. London giving her a decisive victory! Apparently, the majority including myself were swayed by her vocal charm! 😉 This is Curious as a Cathy signing off with one more vintage recording by Julie.
I hope to see y’all back for a not-so Wordless Wednesday!
Good morning, kittens & dawgs! It’s Thanksgiving week. If you’re like me then you have a lot to do which means we have little time to hang around Blogosphere. This week’s Thanksgiving celebration we have an extra reason to be thankful. In case you missed the mews on Friday, DH got a job offer and he accepted. I thought it only fitting to use songs not only representing my present mood but my overall appreciation for this special time of year set aside to give thanks and so my theme this week is Blessings and Honor!
How have you been blessed recently or over the past year? A couple of years ago, I wrote 10 Thanksgiving Blessings; many of those blessings still apply today. What are you looking forward to most about Thanksgiving? Can you think of any other songs falling in line with today’s theme?
In my last BoTB round, I asked you to vote on your favorite Victory Song between Gonna Fly Now and Chariots of Fire. The predominant leader and consequently the winner in this showdown, as if this is any surprise to y’all, is…. Gonna Fly Now with a 8 to 3 victory!
I knew almost from the start that Gonna Fly Now (Rocky theme song) got my vote but I didn’t want to influence any of my lovelies. I invite you to check with Stephen to see how the other battles went down!
Now it’s time for me to fly. Thank you for including me in your Monday and I’ll do my level best to respond and make return visits. 😉 I’m linking with the 🎶 party hosted by the Monday’s Music Moves Me crew and you’re welcome to come with and don’t forget to hop back for not-so Wordless Wednesday!
Good morning, Kittens & Dawgs! Mewsic is the pulse in my veins. John from The Sound of One Hand Typing shared today’s featured artist on his site and I knew the instant I heard his musical choice that I had to bring this discovery to you.
If you’re a new and upcoming artist desiring a little extra play time, please pitch me and I’ll plug your tunes in for my readers to enjoy. Have a songsational Saturday and I’ll see you Monday for Mewsic Moves Me!
Good morning, kittens & dawgs! Well, I’m behind on getting my post together but I have a good excuse. Well, you may not agree with me on it being good, but I feel good about it. I was busy slamming all of my social medias with the hopes of helping an undecided voter or to convert other voters to Trump. That’s all I will on that matter. 😉
I reckon some of you are here to get the results of my last BoTB showdown. I used the Beatles’ hit, Revolution for my battle cover song. The contest was Mike and the Mechanics VS Rascal Flatts. In the beginning, I thought it was going to be a tight race but Rascal Flatts took the lead and didn’t let up giving them 10 to 4, which is who I picked.
To celebrate this bands victory here is another Rascal Flatts song honoring our military, which is sorta fitting with Veterans Day on Friday.
For more epic BoTB results visit Stephen for a list of bloggers who play.
I’m joining Les from Ink Interrupted for Tuesday Coffee Chat this with this morning’s prompt:
I’m going to give you a challenge for the rest of this month. I want you to think about something in your life you’d like to focus on — just for you – and commit to that task. Maybe it will require a daily check in. Maybe only weekly. Perhaps it’s writing a certain number of words per day. Or a photo a day. The only rule is that it is For YOU. Your need.
I do have something I already committed to doing and it’s actually for someone else but by doing it, it is also for me. It involves crafts and creativity. Two driving elements that enlighten my spirit. Something I very much need in my life. I hope to begin my project this week and perhaps next week I can share what I’m doing without giving a lot of details. You know if a certain someone is reading my blog. I don’t want to let the “Cathy” out of the bag yet. 😉
That’s a wrap for this morning. I’m hopping over to Stacy’s for Random Tuesday Thoughts and you’re welcome to join me if you want. I hope you’ll hop & link up tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday. Have a terrific Tuesday!
Let me make a quick announcement about my July 1st BoTB, kittens and dawgs. Despite extending the voting poll period, the showdown remained very lopsided. Def Leppard carried this contest from start to finish winning 12 to 4. I gave my vote to Taylor in the end, but it didn’t help the poor gal. Contender #1 was too strong. Congratulations go to Def Leppard!
Round 2 of BoTB picks up on the 15th, if you carry to weigh in on the voting. Meanwhile, it’s time to put your dance shoes on and hit the floor with me!
Last month, Burt Reynolds was in town shooting a new film. I got to see him; he drove on to the set within 4 feet from where I stood. Whoo-hoo! See?
Photographed in downtown Knoxville on Market Square.
This month, I’m helping my good blogger pal, XmasDolly and the 4M crew. One of her chicks is out on vacation, so I’m filling her dance shoes as a temporary co-host. There is no theme this week, so this is a perfect time to feature Burt Reynolds movie theme songs. Let’s get this party started!
The Smokey and the Bandit series are my favorites featuring Mr. Reynolds, but another fun classic from 1981, The Cannonball Run with Ray Stevens singing the theme song.
Sarah Vaughan singing Sharky’s Machine love song theme (1981) with Burt and Rachel Ward.
How Do You Keep the Music Playing from the film, Best Friends (1982) with Burt and Goldie Hawn.
The Charlie Daniels Band sang the theme song for the 1983 flick Stroker Ace with Burt, Loni Anderson, Jim Nabors, and Ned Beatty.
This small sample of movie theme songs puts me in the mood to go on Burt Reynolds movie binge. Check IMDb for a his complete filmography. I wanted to met Burt Reynolds, but I didn’t get that opportunity. I tweeted the director to be an extra, but I never got the chance to do that, either. *sigh* Oh well, it was awesome to see such a big star in person. Whoo-hoo!
I barely got this shot with everyone hovering around the star. Thank heavens for zoom lens! He never looked over his shoulder at the crowd.
What’s the first movie that comes to mind when you think Burt Reynolds?
Do you have a favorite Burt Reynolds film?
Normally I use InLinkz for you guys, but since I’m co-hosting Monday’s Music Moves Me, then I’m only using their linky code and you’re welcome to link your 🎶music post🎶 below. You can find the 4M button on XmasDolly’s site to snag and display on your site. Now, get out on the dance floor and boogie!
While I’m making repairs to my site, I’m putting together my mid-week and Friday photo post into one. You’re invited back to share and join the fun this Wednesday. Thanks for including me in your day. I’d love to know what songs are moving you. Next stop, your place! Have a tunetastic week. 😉
