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.

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.

Halloween, 1987

One of the great things about my job as a primary school teacher was that I was EXPECTED to dress up for Halloween.
How cool is that?

Sunday is for Family

Grandpa and Me
Savannah, GA

My grandfather and I had a special relationship.
When USMC sent Daddy to Korea in 1960,  Mother and I lived with my grandparents for 13 months. I was the only grandchild at that time and Grandpa spoiled me rotten
I loved every minute of it!

I'm Juz Sayin'

All work and no play,
makes Jack a dull boy.

No, no, no!
I'm not talking about my Labra-pal, Jack.

I'm referring to the fact that there has been too much work and not enough doggie-centered activities around here lately.

The Peeps call it "home improvements."
I call it a lot of unnecessary noise and puppy neglect.

Anyway, I convinced them it was time for a break.
(If you saw Saturday's post, you'll agree, Rama's been sniffing too much Cabot stain.
So, we've loaded up the RV and are headed off into the wild blue yonder.

Ciao for now!
(why does that make me hungry?)

Sassy Says

You made me so very happy,
I'm so glad you came into my life.

"You've Made Me So Very Happy" is a song that was written by Brenda Holloway, Patrice Holloway, Frank Wilson and Berry Gordy, and was released first as a single in 1967 by Brenda Holloway on the Tamla label. The song was later a huge hit for jazz-rock band Blood, Sweat & Tears in 1969.
Blood, Sweat & Tears, the group's self-titled second album, was produced by James William Guercio and released in late 1968. The album was much more pop-oriented, featuring decidedly fewer compositions from within the band. (David Clayton-Thomas, however, had already mounted a solo career as a singer/songwriter over this same time period, beginning with an album released in 1969 by Decca).[1] The record quickly hit the top of the charts, winning Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards over The Beatles' Abbey Road, among other nominees. wikipedia

I'd like to dedicate today's song to Ms. Kim at Golden Pines, Ms. Phyl, and everyone who helps with rescuing and fostering. Thank you for all the love and comfort you provide.

From all the pups you have saved...

Some of you may be asking, "Sassy, why are you so excited today?"

Well, today is no ordinary day.

Today is DogDaze Daddy's birthday!

EditingMySpace.com - Happy Birthday

This week's 1970 melodic memory is dedicated to DDD (DogDaze Daddy), who loves Sly and The Family Stone.

"Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)", released in December 1969, is a 1970 hit single recorded by Sly and the Family Stone, recognized as one of the greatest and most influential funk songs of all time. The song, double a-sided with "Everybody Is a Star", reached number one on the soul single charts for five weeks, and reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1970. wikipedia

Farewell, Hummers!

This was our last "resident" hummer of the season.
 For the past several weeks Squeak sat atop the Japanese Maple tree, guarding the feeder,
through extreme heat, rain, and wind.
I haven't seen her since last weekend, however, I have seen several visitors stopping by for a quick drink at the feeder.
It's always sad to see them go and I find myself wishing  we had hummingbirds in our area year round.
But then, I guess, it wouldn't be such a treat to see them  April through October.
Until next year Hummers,

Monday's Mosaic Memory ~Flannery


It took Flannery several years to mature, and he often challenged my patience, but he was one of the friendliest, funniest, most intelligent and affectionate dogs I have ever owned.

If you've ever owned or known an Irish Setter, you can relate to Gary Larson's cartoon.

The way I see it, if you want the rainbow,
you gotta put up with the rain.

~Dolly Parton

This week's musical blast from the past is by one of my favorite artists from the 60's and 70's, B.J. Thomas.

"Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" is a song written by Hal David and Burt Bacharach for the 1969 film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song. David and Bacharach also won Best Original Score. The version by B. J. Thomas was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States in January 1970 for four weeks and the first number-one single of the 1970s. It also spent seven weeks atop the U.S. adult contemporary chart. (wikipedia)

Remember this great scene with Paul Newman and Katharine Ross?
Wow, how many times did I see this at the drive-in?
