NOTE: #1- It's Friday afternoon.....& the "final weekend of summer" is before us. I found this lovely photograph & have been waiting to use it for the last few months, but am so glad I saved it till now. I think it is the "perfect image",.... for saying our" sweet good-byes" to the last few months. Let us all enjoy this last "warm-weather weekend,.... before "gently inching" toward Autumn. This summer has been a wonderful one,... but for me, the idea of "Fall", has captivated my every thought!...."Good-bye Summertime",.... see you next year.
NOTE: #2- Congratulations Gov. Sarah Palin, for becoming John McCain's vice-presidential nomination.....An exceptional woman, to say the least!!!....I enjoyed watching (but respectfully disagree with) the Democratic convention this last week, & am very excited to see what the Republicans have in store for us in the coming week!....The next few months should prove very exciting!!!...I urge you all to get out,... & proudly get involved!....After all, having an opinion & standing up for it,..... is what America is all about!
NOTE:#3- I have been very "tardy".......My sweet friend, Alaura @ "Cottage Rose", tagged me about a month ago with the "Five Embarrassing Songs" tag. I meant to post about it in the next few days, but as you can see it has taken me a bit longer!...To tell you the truth, the only time I am really listening to music is in the car. And when I am in the car, my daughter, Holly & grandson, Andrew are usually with me. Even though listening to "Rascal Flats" would be my first choice,... the tunes we are usually listening & singing to, are ones a 4 year old enjoys! Which is just fine!.... And they are wonderfully "silly", so here goes.....#1-Raffi's "Baby Beluga".....#2-Hullabaloo's (a San Diego based duo) "Too Much Mango", #3-"Dogs & Diamonds", #4-"Mama Llama" & #5- "Grown-Up Sippy Cup".....I invite anyone who might be reading this to consider themselves to be tagged! .....Thank you, Alaura!!!!
