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. 😉

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!



This is a weekly hop for mewsic enthusiasts regardless if you follow our weekly theme or not if you have mewsic to share then we’re ready to dance with you. Otherwise, I ask that you do not link non-mewsic posts below to boost traffic to your site. You’re welcome to leave your URL in comments with a brief description inviting me to check it out. Thank you!

 

 

 

I invite you hop over to McGuffy’s Reader for more “Sparks” of inspiraiton/encouragement. Let’s make the world a better place, one person at a time beginning with #1! 😉

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’ll see ya around the cyber block soon! X💋X💋, Cathy

Take a Little Ride with the #4M crew #music

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

 

Good morning, Kittens and Dawgs! It’s fabulous to see you! Are you ready to groove to some mewsic?  Our theme this week is songs about  “Vehicles – Cars or Trucks or Boats” but we’re not finicky if you have tunes to share then we’re ready to boogie with you and we invite you step on the dance floor with  XmasDolly, Stacy, Colette, and little ole me!

 

Our car (2003) is reliable and getting really old but don’t tell her that! She’s a Toyota need I say more? While I’d love to have a new car, I’ve always secretly or not so wanted a truck. You know there’s so much you can do with a truck. Hayrides or making-out camping in the truck bed, off-road drivin’, haulin’ large stuff home or movin’  into a new place (that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout!). There’s somethin’ ’bout a truck!

 

 

If I had a truck ole yeah, I could do all the things above and more!

 

This is a weekly hop for mewsic enthusiasts regardless if you follow our weekly theme or not if you have mewsic to share then we’re ready to dance with you. Otherwise, I ask that you do not link non-mewsic posts below to boost traffic to your site. You’re welcome to leave your URL in comments with a brief description inviting me to check it out. Thank you!



 

 

Do you have a truck?

Would you like a truck?

What would you do with a truck?

Have you camped in the bed of a truck?

What mewsic moves you today? ?

I’m joining my pal, Annie, for another edition of “Sparks” and this is what she says about her new meme series…

I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!

 

Last week was hard. I found out something I didn’t like, so I dedicate today’s encouragement to those dealing with a painful life.

 

At the present I have somethings up in the air. I don’t know how things will play out, so if I’m slow to dance with you then know I will stop by to boogie with you soon! Also with things up in the air I’m not sure if tomorrow’s post will make it. If you don’t see one then, life has taken precedent and blogging is on hold temporarily.  You can always join my email subscription to get the latest “Curious as the Cathy” mews straight to your inbox. Have a tunetastic day!

X💋X💋, Cathy

Oh, Child Let It Go because it’s time to Start Over Again + #BoTB results

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

 

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!

Me and Tennessee

BeFunky_Cyanotype_1smokysnc

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?

 

Angela from Mommy Time Out and I would like to thank you for joining us 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).

It’s so nice of you to come by & I hope you’ll decide to make it a repeat visit each week to share in my musical memories (new or old) and my photo ops.

Wanna make me (or someone else) happy today? Then, leave a comment! I’ll be hopping over to your little niche in Blogosphere soon!

F is for Finale

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!

Have a terrific Thursday!
