BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Sassy Says

Love is kinda crazy with a spooky
little girl like me*.
(* you)

This week's musical memory is by a group with whom I happen to have a personal connection.

See if you can follow this:
My first college roommate's brother was college roommates with Dennis Yost at Jacksonville University.
(Kind of a stretch, huh?)

The Classics IV was a band formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1965. They are given credit for beginning the "soft southern rock" sound. The band and its lead singer Dennis Yost are principally known for the hits "Spooky" and "Stormy", both released in 1968 and both of which have become cover standards. (wikipedia)

My favorite song by The Classics IV is "Everyday With You Girl", but I thought this would be more appropriate today.

I'm going to have all sorts of earworms now -

It is going to be hard for me to get 'Traces' out of my head now!

It was a song my female chorus did when I was in 7th grade - oh the high notes I could hit THEN!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

hey Sassy,

Scary video! The song was pretty cool but before my time. My human said it was a "blast from the past." Thanks for setting the mood for this spooky Halloween week-end!
