Songs of my Life

Three songs –
Everyone has had a song that has stuck with them throughout their life. I can think of three of them that have always been part of mine.
Song #1 – Wasted on the Way by Crosby Stills & Nash
This song was our class song. I can remember how the pastor who led our graduation ceremony was suddenly concerned about our class when he heard the title of this song. He hung his head and was ready to weep for us, but someone said, “Listen to the words before your judge our choice.”
He listened and was suddenly surprised how he had miss judged us by a silly title.
Yes, I’ve wasted much time and so much more, regarding my life’s journey. That song is so true to my life. Now I do my best to make up for all which was wasted. Life can pass us by so fast.
Song #2 – Landslide by Stevie Nicks
When I went through my divorce, it was my song. I thought I had sat on top of a mountain looking down on the world, and then the landslide happened and my life changed forever. Years later, that change was for the best. I’ve never been happier.
Song #3 – My Favorite Things from the Sound of Music
Just like Maria says in the Sound of Music when I’m feeling sad, I simply remember my most favorite things and everything doesn’t seem so bad. I’ve known this song since I was little and even during the summer time I can still think of the lyrics and a smile will come to me and right my whole world.
Isn’t it funny how a song can make us feel?

Super Sonic Puppy Power

Puppy Power!

Keelaa is 8 months old. Our friendly Chihuahua/Dachshund mix is agile as a weasel. Play, play, play, it’s all she wants to do all day.

Super Sonic Puppy Power
This puppy moves at the speed of light.

Our cat, Sam, who tries to be as grumpy as Grumpy Cat can be, is always on the lookout for the terror on four legs.

He says, “Don’t touch my tail!”

She asks, “But why? You can’t stop me! You can’t catch me!

“I touched your tail!”

Grumpy Cat Wannabe
“Don’t touch my tail!”

Maybe someday the two will get along. For now, Keelaa will have to settle for being the fastest dog in the Northeast and a cat’s greatest terror on four legs.

She only wants to be his friend. Keelaa can’t help that his tail looks so inviting and daring to touch with her nose.
