No, I don't have the blues! Just singing...
Thanks for the emails and comments regarding the Tooth Fairy's current rate. The little lady gave up $1.00 and the Diva Daughter was super happy with this. I actually think she was more pleased that the TF took the card she had made and left under her pillow, along with her tooth!
I am happy it is Friday..'cause I love Fridays, but it also means I only have one more full day of vacation before going back to work! Boo hiss! What will I do my last day? Hmmm....oh, work on REWIND WEEK 1970s! Actually, I am finished with my Rewind project and can't wait to post pictures of it. I also can't wait to post the pictures of all who participated! This has been a really fun project and I am so happy that I got a chance to meet some new blogger friends through it. I've also gotten exposed to other art mediums that I may not have even looked at before visiting the different blogs that are a part of the Bloggerette Sorority!
One of these artists I have been exposed to is Cindy Atkins. I invite you to slip over to a link party at I Owe It All To Him. Cindy's question for today is:
What is your favorite song?
This is an easy peasy one for me to answer. And it totally relates to Rewind Week 1970s! Can you guess what it is by the last verse?
I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn't play
And in the streets the children screamed
The lover cried, and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken
The three men I admire most
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died.

I hope these images jog some memories for some of you. For those too young to remember any of these things, take the opportunity to ask your mom or dad or grandparents about their memories of this decade. I bet they will enjoy talking about their memories and feel great that you asked them.
Toodles for now!
