Well folks it might be still over a month away technically but it’s hot down in Georgia.  Sometimes I don’t think we would have a Spring, save for the rainy days.   So kick back and enjoy your frozen PGD (Pink Girly Drink) and share some summertime toons.

My favorite summertime song the George Gershwin original.  Several versions I could findliday – Bluesy

Janis Joplin – Folk Rocky

Ella Fitzgerald – Jazzy

Jill Scott and George Benson – Duety

Kathlene Battle – Operay

Sarah Brightman – Divinely

I’ll leave you with the quintescential music for a Summer night.  Ein kleine nachtmusik.

Please share your summertime favorites.

Hey Blues Tiger!
Off Topic, but I have to go now and practice, practice, practice –

If you are lurking – a very good friend of my husband’s is coming out in June from Oregon and he’s a fellow engineer, but also in a band!

We’ve played with him before, and he’s formed yet another band, but this time it’s a “Geezer” Band and he’s sent us all the songs that he wants us to practice.

He wrote them and he’s very, very good.
He’s more along the lines of Bob Dylan, and he even sounds like Dylan but from Dylan’s younger years.

Then he asked us to send the songs we play, so my husband sent him 23 songs that we do fairly well, but we don’t write, except for one song that we’re actually proud of.

It’s a great hobby!

Plus it keeps arthritis from settling into our fingers and it does keep our minds somewhat sharp.

I still think that it would be a great idea with all the musicians and artists here and the writers that we form a band and call ourselves the Planeteers!

This is one that I love to play –

Ok, I’ve run out of summertime, summer love and summer songs. I have the famous spinning, multi coloured Mac ball, my mouse is having a hissy fit.

Time to start cleaning. I swear by the time I’m done, I’ll have enough shedding hair to make a new soft pillow for hubby.

Have a great night and see you later. Be good now. 🙂

Hello escribacat, that’s bloody awful. Take care you don’t catch a cold. I’ve had a “bug” going into the 4th week now, am totally fed up with it.

Hope you are well and see you soon I hope.

The other night I went outside at 1:30 a.m. and shook the snow off my beautiful crabapple blooms. The branches were weighted down and I didn’t want them to break. This is a common problem around here.
