~Favorite Life Song's~





Frank Sinatra - That's Life


That's life, that's what people say.

You're riding high in April,
Shot down in May.
But I know I'm gonna change their tune,
When I'm right back on top in June.

That's life, funny as it seems.
Some people get their kicks,
Steppin' on dreams
But I just can't let it get me down,

Cause this big old world keeps spinnin' around.

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,
A poet, a pawn and a king.
I've been up and down and over and out
But I know one thing:
Each time I find myself flat on my face,
I pick myself up and get back in the race.

That's life, I can't deny it,

I thought of quitting,
But my heart just won't buy it.
Cause if I didn't think it was worth a try,
I'd have to roll myself up in a big ball and die.

Mike & The Mechanics - The living Years


Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations

Come beating on your door

I know that I'm a prisoner
To all my father held so dear
I know that I'm a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him
In the living years

Crumpled bits of paper

Filled with imperfect thought
Stilted conversations
I'm afraid that's all we've got

You say you just don't see it
He says it's perfect sense
You just can't get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language

Talking in defence

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future

It's the bitterness that lasts

So don't yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different day
And if you don't give up,
And don't give in
You may just be OK


Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

I wasn't there that morning
When my father passed away
I didn't get to tell him
All the things I had to say.

I think I caught his spirit
Later that same year
I'm sure I heard his echo
In my baby's new born tears
I just wish I could have told him
In the living years

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear

It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

It was mostly very welcome rain....a bit of mushy snowflakes mixed in. It did stay pretty chilly all day but is supposed to warm up some tomorrow.

Bedtime here....see ya tomorrow!

Without Love by Clyde McPhatter, a hit from the early months of 1957, is set to a tune that sounds like an old Methodist hymn.

I've been enjoying this thread a lot here tonight. Gotta run now, but wanted to share a few "life" songs with you from a couple different angles.

C'est La Vie - Bob Seger

C'est La Vie - Waylon & Jessi

C'est La Vie - Emmylou Harris

C'est La Vie - Chuck Berry

The Long Arm Of Love - Southern Grace (some gospel "life" music)

Wonderful Words Of Life - Gaithers (more gospel)

Let Me Be Born - Ladies of Cecilia (pro-life from a baby's viewpoint)

But, please stay right where you are.
Keep the troops entertained and the Canteen clean...

Sit for a while.

There's always plenty of coffee, tea

It's going OK this morning. Bo has finished his anti-biotic medicine. I talked to my brother about Bo yesterday and he wants me to give Bo a break from the lake.

He seems however to be acting like himself. I'll talk with my brother about that over the weekend.

((HUGS))Good morning, Fatima. How's it going?

Your brother might be right. Maybe Bo is allergic to something there, or eating something he shouldn’t. If he’s feeling more himself and you take him to the lake, watch to see if he starts to feel bad again. It would mean there’s something about the lake.

Maybe you want to find another place for him to exercise and see how he feels.

Morning Beachie!!

Yuk, I've been out the last couple of days with the "Crud", 24 hour flu I guess, I feel much better today :-)

The rain has let up a bit, no real bad flooding anymore, thankfully; it's suppose to clear up for the weekend, Woo-Hoo!

Better get somemore coffee and get to work, have a grandacious day!
