HS Days One-Hit Wonders #4M & Grateful for ALL Things Quote #Sparks

Puritan's Pride Vitamins


Good morning, Kittens and Dawgs! I’m taking life easy in Blogosphere. The holidays are fast approaching and instead of getting stressed about this or that, I’m just going with the flow. Our mewsic theme this week is “One-Hit Wonders from Your High School Days” submitted by today’s Spotlight Dancer, Vandy J from The Testosterone Three and Me. Very cool theme I might say, not that I’m doing a series on this subject or anything. ūüėČ

I graduated in 1980, so my high school years spanned the late 70s. This is currently the decade I’m working on with my #1 One-Hit Wonders series, so I thought I’d pick those one-hit wonders that were a little less known to me, such as my opening song “It Must Be Love” by Alton McClain & Destiny peaking #32 on June 9, 1979 which coincidentally is our wedding date. Yeah, I was a child bride and you can read a little more about it here. Now, stroll down memory lane with my high school years one-hit wonders playlist!

 

  1. Summer 1976, “Save Your Kisses For Me” Brotherhood of Man, peaked #27
  2. Fall 1977 “Smoke From a Distant Fire” Sanford Townsend Band, peaked #9
  3. Summer 1978 “Dance Across the Floor” Jimmy Bo Horne, peaked #38
  4. Summer 1980 “New Romance” Spider, peaked #39

Some of these one-hit wonders I remember but most I can’t say for sure, except for the #9 charting song. Okay, it’s your turn, what mewsic moves you today?

 

I invite you to hit the dance floor with my dance partners XmasDolly, Stacy,  & Colette!

I pulled together a playlist of Contemporary Christian and Country Artists with songs about blessings/gratitude prior to knowing today’s mewsic theme and instead of ditching it, I decided to share it in this segment. Hey, what can I say, I love mewsic! ¬†This is the season of reflection and a time to express gratitude for everything in you life no matter how small or how difficult because we have it better than most. We just need to open our eyes to receive the blessings in all shapes

 

  1. “We Are Blessed” All Sons & Daughters
  2. “I Could Not Ask For More” Sara Evans
  3. “Blessings” Laura Story
  4. “It’s a Great Day to be Alive” Travis Tritt
  5. “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)” Matt Redman
  6. “But For The Grace of God” Keith Urban
  7. “Good Good Father” Chris Tomlin
  8. “Live Like You Were Dying” Tim McGraw

 

I’m chillaxing in Blogosphere with the upcoming holidays. There’s no need to add stress to one’s life. This is a season of blessings and good cheer, so enjoy it – live in the moment! Keep those tunes playing, your body swaying, and I‚Äôll see ya around the cyber block soon! XūüíčXūüíč, Cathy

Card Games – Day 19 G2KM Blog Challenge

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Growing up the backwoods of West Virginia there was very little to do outside the home. No malls to hang out in, no cable TV, NO Internet (it hadn’t been invented yet), no to a lot of today’s common kiddie magnets.¬† We had to create our own entertainment.¬† That was easy.
One thing we¬†enjoyed playing was card games.¬† Gin Rummy was the first card game I¬†learned.¬† My Uncle Roger taught me how to play.¬† Many old-timers thought playing cards was a sin, but we only saw it as fun.¬† I loved playing it, too!¬† This is a game which requires more than one person, but what do I do, if I wanted to play by myself?¬† I soon grew¬†intrigued¬†with my best friend’s mother’s game of choice – Solitaire.¬† I watched her play, but never picked it up.

Solitaire stuck in my mind for years.  I eventually taught myself how to play.  I figured my brain could use the stimulation. Raising small ones sometimes left me feeling like dust was collecting on the shelves of my mind.  Once home computers became a near essential, then I was introduced to computerized Solitaire.  This was more convenient and enjoyable to play.

Solitaire filled in my spare time and kept rust out of the gears and wheels of my brain through the years.¬† Recently, as recent as last fall, my father-in-law who is in his 80s taught me how to play Spider Solitaire.¬† I had wondered how to play this game but couldn’t figure it out for myself.¬† I guess some rust had my processor locked up.

 

After a quick 101 course in the basics of Spider Solitaire, it hooked me!¬† I’m still on the lower level playing where I try to match up two suits before the fireworks shoot across my screen announcing I’ve won, but it’s not at all boring and at times a bit challenging.¬† Once I’m winning game after game after game, then I will bump things up a notch.¬† This isn’t medical research or physics or chemical engineering.¬† It’s simply Spider Solitaire, but it my as well be my form of rocket science,¬†as it¬†allows this ole fat head to get a¬†workout….a mental workout that is.
