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!
Original unedited photo, used BeFunky for copyright. I captured this image in the Great Smoky Mountains along highway south 441 just across the TN/NC state line last July with my Nikon D7000 DSLR. You may have noticed, I have a strange fixation with clouds and mountains. I hope you enjoy the pictures, as much as I did snapping them. In keeping with what I do every Wednesday, come see how I used this picture create new photo edited images.
Today’s song doesn’t necessarily tie in with my photo, other than in title only. I just love it, especially since earlier in the week I shared a song post of music telling the story of my life. From my early years to adulthood my story my life became Me and Tennessee in name only NOT the lyrics.
Country music isn’t my forte and I this definite is new-to-me. It’s kind of sad song, but it sounds pretty. Me and Tennessee, this where I belong!
Do you have a song, which tells a story of your life in the title only?

This week, three of our favorite Reality TV shows had their season’s finales. What will we do?
It all began on Sunday night. Donald Trump announced the new Celebrity Apprentice in his 2-hour fanfare.
Over the last few months, one celebrity after another got fired from the show and then everyone reunited on stage for the big production between Marlee Matlin and John Rich. Both celebrities charities were for children.
Marlee played for The Starkey Hearing Foundation and John worked to raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
I liked both celebrities. I would’ve been happy with either one but I felt a slight tug of my heart for John Rich to win. I felt like John was the more talented and creative of the two celebrities. I was not familiar with John Rich until Celebrity Apprentice so it was interesting to get to know him through this season.
As it turned out, John Rich, a country singing boy took victory as the next Celebrity Apprentice Super Star. Congratulations John, you deserve it! Watch John Rich perform his new song, For The Kids ( You can buy MP3 Download @ Amazon for $0.99) with Marlee Matlin signing. It’s so beautiful!
Monday night Dancing with the Stars allowed their three finalist one last shot on the dance floor. Actress, Kristie Alley, and her professional dance partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Disney’s star, Chelsea Kane, paired with Latin Style dancer, Mark Ballas, and Pittsburgh Steelers’ finest, Hines Ward, with one of my favorite female dancers, Kym Johnson.
It was perfectly clear in my mind the couple who would take the Mirror Ball Trophy would be either Chelsea & Mark or Hines & Kym. I was certain, Kristie & Maks would take third place. I was totally shocked. Did I say totally shocked? Yes, I was totally shocked when Chelsea and Mark placed third. Oh my goodness! How insane is that? They didn’t’ deserve to be in the bottom. However, thankfully, (phew) Hines and Kym won. Way to go Hines and Kym!
Last night, the finale of American Idol televised. Twenty-four young talents emerged. Now, only two were left standing – Scotty McCreey and Lauren Alaina. Both young talents are equal. Over the weeks of competition, they stepped outside their country singing comfort zone to perform many styles of music with their own signature flair and poise. They are true artists – multi-talented and flawless. Again, two of my favorite contestants – neither one would disappoint me to be named the next American Idol, but deep inside I knew who the winner was and I was absolutely right, Scotty McCreey – you’re an American Idol!
“All good things must come to an end,” as the old saying goes. This season of our favorites was no different and it to had to come to an end with each finale aired. Until the next season’s lineup. Farewell – Celebrity Apprentice, Dancing with the Stars, and America Idol fans everywhere!
Thank-you Miss Jenny, for hosting this super cool, brain-boosting meme, Alphabe-Thursday! Don’t miss the action, join the fun next!
Over the weekend, we were knocking around town just enjoying ourselves like we should. On our drive home a song came over the radio. I’m one of these people who will react first to the melody and not the lyrics. I do this mainly because I have difficulty following all the words because of some hearing problems related to childhood ear infections. Nope, I’m not deaf or anywhere close to it but I do have a slight hearing impairment which drives me nuts. But back to my story, Tim McGraw’s song was playing and my husband said, “Do you understand what he’s saying?” I paused to give it my full attention and when I did, goose bumps rippled up my spine. If you haven’t heard it, then please click on the YouTube link below and listen for yourself. It’s a lesson we all should apply, LIVE LIKE YOU WERE DYING.
