Battle Hymn of the Republic-Saturday 9.


Memorial Day was introduced to honor the men and women who died while serving the in the United States Armed Forces. We want to make sure that message is not forgotten this weekend.

1) This recording was made live at St. Patrick's Cathedral, during Sen. Robert Kennedy's funeral. While both of Bobby's older brothers were decorated war heroes, he served too -- enlisting in the Navy in 1943. Are you a veteran? Are there veterans in your family? (We are grateful and want to hear about it.)
Mr BC was in the Navy when we met.  After we married we moved to Key West, FL and I spent his last year of enlistment, as a Navy wife. During his 6 years he spent time on ships firing off the coast of Vietnam and was often in Japan.

Sunday Zoo Babies


I love the website ZooBorns.  Every day there is a new post of baby animals that have been born in Zoos, and what can be better than BABY ANIMALS? The interwebz is just full of baby animals and I find and save the cute pictures and there they sit in my files.  But, no longer I will put them on my blog so everyone can enjoy them.

Greased Lightening....Saturday 9

1) Greased Lightnin' was the name of a car. Have you ever given your car a name? 
Yes, we currently drive Miss Tiffany and Rosie.  In the garage is Becca's Bee and the Duchess. We even named our RV, Cozette. I posted about it in 2007, here.

Writer's Block Wednesday

City Muse/Country Muse each week offer a photo as inspiration, as a prompt or as a distraction and call it Writer's Block Wednesday.

The moon rises above the lake of liquid silver
The wind rustles the leaves,
Gently swaying the tree branches,
 Ghost like, above me.
I breathe deeply and imagine the evening star
Will grant my wish,
That you will soon draw near
And weave your dreams, your imagination,
With mine.

Getting Back to Normal, One Step at a Time.

I am taking baby steps as I get back to blogging.  The A-Z challenge took a lot out of me.  I am just now starting to get back to reading all the folks that I now follow.  I have been looking at the writing prompts from WOE and Trifecta for a couple of weeks now and just cringe at the idea of trying to write anything.

This morning's Today Show, has all sorts of bad news from Washington.  Obama is having a difficult second term, with many scandals that will be his fault, as they came to light under his watch.

Mama Told Me.....Saturday 9

1) This song is about a lad who didn't take his mother's advice and attended the wild party anyway (hear it here). When you were young, did your parents approve of your friends? If you're a parent yourself, how have you handled it when your kids start hanging around with friends you're not crazy about?
There were a couple of guys, my mom was not happy about, but for the most part she liked all of my friends.  I have since found out there were a few of DD1 friends I should have checked out.  At the time it seemed that all of her friends were fine.

I Survived....Many Things

I talked about how I was feeling about this challenge here. If I do this again, I believe I will have a theme and I have another year to think about it.  I appreciate my new followers.  I have 70 now,  Woo Hoo! I have also found some new blogs to add to my reading list and now that I am back I am catching up and commenting.  It is not as daunting a task to read and comment because not all of my new reads are posting every day.  Life is getting back to normal.
