Alrighty, I have some good mews for y’all. Our lovely Dancing Queen, Marie, will return to the dance floor today after being away for a few weeks fighting a battle with pneumonia. WOOT! WOOT! *applauds*
Okay, it’s time to have a little fun. Who says Mondays can’t be fun? Lace up your blue suede shoes or kick ’em off to rock n’ roll in your socks. In honor of Marie’s big brother’s birthday she suggested we go with the mewsic theme “Siblings Day“. Let’s get this party going!
I am the oldest of four. My siblings are left to right: LilBro1, LilSis, and LilBro2. I figured I would play mewsic from their birth years.
LilBro1 is my first cousin and his mother passed away when he was very young. I’m not speaking ill of the dead and I certainly do not understand the goings-on in my uncle’s head but he placed his children in the care of other family members or the state orphanage. My parents adopted him in the early 70s after LilSis was born. He had a sweet disposition and always willing to help me around the house. The week he was born in May 1965 this Beatle number one single made the Billboard Hot 100 Chart!
In a few days, LilSis will celebrate 47 years. She was my living babydoll with more than nine years separating us. There wasn’t a song charting the week of her birth, so I went with the week before and according to Wikipedia climbing to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 Charts between May 30-June 6 was Ray Stevens’ Everything is Beautiful which describes my LilSis – beautiful!
LilBro2 and I were good buddies when we were small sharing everything together. This past April was his 51st birthday but he left us in 2006 to live in heaven. I’m sure the angels threw him a big bash. The week of his birthday April 14th this song ranked #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts.
Hold on to everything! I need to include the siblings I inherited when I married DH! I always felt like they are my brothers and sister. Family ties don’t need to be through blood but through love and I love each of them dearly. Hopefully, I’ll get the years right.
I don’t know who snapped this shot. I suspect it was DH but I can’t swear to it. This scene is definitely a signature capture of these clowns and DH is just like his big brothers.
BIL1, born mid-November 1949, this unfamiliar tune was a Billboards Best Sellers in Stores and Number One-Singles from October 1-November 19th.
The next hit is US Cash Box Best Selling Singles #1 Hit from December 30, 1950, through February 3, 1951, placing this song around the time of BIL2 birth. Wouldn’t you know it many years later, he’d find himself living in the very state mentioned in the song title. Is it a coincidence or fate? 😉
Lastly, this popular song from 1955 (SIL birth year) was Best Sellers in Stores for the first three weeks in January and it’s a classic of the 50s.
What mewsic do you think of when you think of your brother(s) or your sister(s)?
I’ll see you next week same time and place. Keep those tunes groovin’ and those toes movin’. It’s time for me to catch the flip side (translation: I’m heading your way) this is Curious as a Cathy signing off!
