Happy Monday, Dixie.

Foggy LondonTown is a beautiful song.
I don't remember the Judy Garland version but Julie London had a fabulous version.

Wishing you a day of beautiful sunshine.

Lovely !! I’ve never heard this song before! Delightful graphic Billie!

Thanks, Polly. I don't know if I've heard Shirley Bassey sing anything before - this sounds like it's from The Big Band Era maybe? - but she sure has a powerful voice, doesn't she? It seems like I've heard Harry Belefonte or someone like that sing the song before, but can't remember who, where, or when! Certain graphics just send me searching for a song though! :)

Thank you, Billie.

Do I dare say that I was pleased with that graphic. The bird is so pretty and the colors just fell into place.

I need to run to school to help with the receipts from Friday night. I think we had a good fundraiser and all the kids had fun. You could say that it was a successful carnival.

I sure appreciate that, Billie. I used to love doing them but I would do them so early, no one got to see them...LOL! As the morning goes by, an early post gets on the last page. I don’t think many check their pings!!

I may start doing it again soon. I bet I have a million...LOL!

Yes, JC sure DOES spoil us, Billie, with her great (ahem) framed graphics, poetry, scripture and words of wisdom!

And, I agree, JC...... I don’t think many check their pings, and I have found out, that by scrolling through the whole daily thread, I have come accross some treasures - that just made my day!!!

Thanks yorkie. I was thinking how well dogs like to go for walks, they really don’t care...rain, sleet, hail or snow.
Isn’t that right, Billie??

It’s a neat song, isn’t it? :) I bet Judy Garland’s version is beautiful, and also much softer than Shirley Bassey’s.

"Man and Dog Love Walking on a Foggy Day"

(My) dogs love walking on a foggy day - or a sunny day, windy day, cool day, cold day, warm day, hot day......rainy day or snowy day, not so much. :)

Pretty scene!

Thanks Amy! Bailey sure is more energetic the last few days. Modern medicine is amazing. Can’t wait to hear what the cardiologist has to say about his progress when we see the vets at the UW Vet School again on Friday. I think they’ll be pleased with his results on the medications.

We have a sunny day here in WI. Took my horse for a nice ride this afternoon.

Have a nice Monday everyone!

Thanks Johnn, The big lug Bailey has his head on my lap now, as he does when I’m feeding my addiction to FR. He’s been quite spunky since he went on the heart meds and the fluid clearing drug. We hadn’t noticed he’d become less energetic while the heart condition progressed. We were just stunned that he had this problem. No longer stunned, I’m on the case, and he’ll get everything he needs to have a good remainder of his life. He’ll sure be feeling better. Dogs are so great. How they weave themselves right into our hearts. Faithful companions. I think he’ll surprise the vets and go longer than a year. FReegards, TCP

Gosh, I read the whole thread too but I have started checking pings and mail too. For a while I was bad about not checking pings and so I laid down a new leaf!

Occasionally, I will miss one addressed to me and I get a few pings from other threads also! And the other day I received some mail from a Tennessee FReeper. He and his wife were getting ready to leave on their way to tour the state of Texas for a whole month. I thought that was great!!

I actually started chatting this morning at 7:00 with TCP, The Mayor, pollywog, Meg. You all know me and my mouth. LOL!!

Shhh .... I usually check my pings but I read the thread whether I'm pinged or not.

There are other threads that I'm pinged to but I do not always visit them ... depends on how active it is at Amy's.

I don't know what kind of birds they are but I thought they were cute. :)

Yep, took 'em tonight with my Canon PowerShot S5 IS. Great camera. Still learning about all the bells and whistles this camera has.

Had a busy day, too busy. Did too much. Mother Nature has once again reminded me that if you do too much you're gonna suffer. Now where did I put those pain meds?
