Well, I almost made it here before it hit noon today!
Actually I did, but I was doing some reading, trying to get caught up!
You people post as fast as you talk!
I'll probably never get caught up on reading the whole thread!
Staying up late to read interesting, new threads,
just when I should be calling it a night, doesn't help either!
(_)o, Siiip, ouch, it's still too hot!
Some good songs posted. Gave me some nice flashbacks!
Haven't thought about those in years!
'Manic Monday' used to be my life back when our 5 kids were all in school.
Especially during the school year! They were all in grade school at the same time one year!
And 4 of them were all in their teens at the same time at one point!!!
I have no nerves left!!!
Aaah...those were the days... Sssiiip....
When songs had lyrics you could understand,
without having to 'squint' your ears to make out the individual words!
When the songs told a story or had a message that you could relate to...
When the music (overall) was easy listening to & calming...
It didn't make your nerves all 'jumpy'!!!
Oops, my 'ancientness' is showing!!!
WOQ quick covers it back up!!! I sound like MY parents!!!
I was in at oldest son & d-in-l's house the other day.
One of the neighbors had something blaring.
So loud the whole neighborhood could hear it.
All it was, was screaming & noise, (I can't even rightfully call it 'music'!)
It sounded like something that would be used to scare crows out of a corn field!!!
I could actually feel it raise my heart rate & make my skin 'itchy'!
I can't imagine that is good for the human body!
Could use it for psychological torture maybe!
Well, back to work! It's been so rainy here that the teasel weeds,
that I let grow for the butterflies, are almost 6 feet high already!
They are weeks ahead of schedule!
The honey bees used to like them too, but I've only seen two of those in years!
There won't be very many butterflies this year either if this rain keeps up!
But mosquitoes, yeah, it isn't going to be pleasant!!!
And the yard is starting to look like a field! We've had rain almost every day for weeks!!!
Have a good afternoon everyone!!!
