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 ~Hold On

Hold On!

Just a little bit tighter now baby.

I love you so much and

I can't let go.
No, no, no...

I'm not sure Zack and Sassy are singing love songs to each other, but I certainly love watching them play and enjoying each other.

This week's song from my senior year of high school was a one hit wonder for the group Alive N Kickin'.

The major hit for the group was written and produced by Tommy James and Bob King and arranged by Jimmy Wisner. Both James and Alive N Kickin' were signed to Roulette and James originally considered having his friends record "Crystal Blue Persuasion," but he liked it so much he decided to record it himself, so he then wrote "Tighter, Tighter" for them.

"Tighter, Tighter" was released in May 1970 and stayed on the US chart for 16 weeks.[1] It sold over one million copies and received a gold disc awarded by the R.I.A.A.[1] After lack of success with their next two singles, "Just Let It Come" and "London Bridge," and difficulties with Morris Levy and Roulette Records, the band broke up at the end of 1971.

The pups sure do enjoy themselves! That song reminds me of living in Buffalo. Hmmmmmmm.

My Mind's Eye said...

Some of the one hit wonders are my favorites too. I often wondered if I gave the the kiss of death because I liked them. Thanks for the memory of this song I had forgotten.
I always loved and still do Brandy by Lookin' Glass!! There is just something about that song....

Good Morning!

Perfect song for Sassy and Zack's rough housing!!! "Tighter & Tighter"

At first I didn't remember the title and then played the song.
OH YEAH!! I remember that one!!
Too bad they broke up after that!

So much fun watching puppies play, even when they are older!!
