How young he was then...unfortunately though...sometimes loving is the hardest thing we ever do. How are you doing Annie? Miss you every day..lots of hugs and an enormous sloppy doggy kiss...mumwhaa

Jeni said...

How true about how young he was -so many things changed over the years but I still love his music very much. And, when it started to play on my computer, my little grandson was zipping around the room but he heard the music start and came over to me, crawled up in my lap and sat here, listening and mezmerized by Kris Kristofferson! The little guy has excellent taste don't 'cha think?

I haven't heard that song in a very long time. Beautiful Ann. What a nice way to start my morning. Hope your feeling lots better. Just take it slow sweetie. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Dawn said...

Absolutely my favorite Kris song. Pure poetry for me...

I have seen the morning burning golden on the mountains in the skies.
Achin' with the feelin' of the freedom of an eagle when she flies.

Remind me to tell you about my Kris parties ;)

Sending good thoughts and lotsa luv your way :)))

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Hi Ann. Just swung by to see how you're doing. I hope things are looking up and your feeling much, much better. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

mauniejames3 said...

Anita said...

You just don't even know how I loved this... Kris is my favorite song writer, and is still one of the most attractive men in the world to me, even at 72!

Webkinz World said...

I love Kris Kristofferson. Thanks for sharing the video.

Speedcat Hollydale said...

They don't make them like that anymore.
I still like the look and sound of that era ... of course todays music mostly confuses me with the overproduced and multitrack mixing.

Plug em in and play :-)

mauniejames3 said...

just me again sweet cheeks..I'm just checking to see if your still resting and doing what the doctor ordered...be back again tomorrow to torture you some more...

I also love to play the video..those were the good old days.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

You've been awarded the Brillante Weblog Award, but only if you want to play along. :)

mauniejames3 said...

here I am again...are you doing better...love you lots...rest up...drink lemon tea...eat cake (my grand daughter added that) but just rest...we don't want you back in the hospital huge hugs

Ann said...

Hey Maunie, I miss you too. I'm sorry I haven't replied to your comments.

I went home from the hospital too early the first time, so I unfortunately had to return for more torture.

Coming home and seeing how many times you and others have checked on me in my absence, touched me in ways I cannot articulate. Let's just say all of you are fabulous people and I'm grateful you still remember me. :)) Especially since the same post has been up for awhile.

But, at least Kris is easy on the eyes and ears isn't he?

What a man.

Maunie, you're the greatest.

Enormous sloppy doggy kiss back to ya~

And a huge e-hug. :)))

Ann said...

Jeni, I definitely do think your grandson has excellent taste. There are many great songwriters, but I've yet to find one I love as much as Kris. I discovered him when I was thirteen years old and learning to play the guitar. At first, I rolled my eyes at my guitar teacher, that is, until I heard the lyrics, or him period.

I'm glad you enjoyed it and I'm glad you stopped by to visit.

Have a great day~

Ann said...

Sandee, You are amazing. Thank you for checking on me. It's always nice to know that your missed and cared about when you do not feel well.

As I told Maunie, I had to return to the hospital, but I didn't want to write another "hospital post."

However, if I would have known how long I would be gone, I would have let you know. I'm sorry. I had my boyfriend post Kris (Although I'm taking credit for it.) because I was under the impression I would be home sooner.

Plus, I want to tell you I have a great Tuesday's Question this Tuesday, so put on your thinking cap~:))

You're an incredible friend, and I appreciate you.

Big Hug and lots of lovies back to you, pal.

Ann said...

Dawn, You know all the words too! ;)

I love how you wrote them in your comment.

I have seen the morning burning golden on the mountains in the skies.
Achin' with the feelin' of the freedom of an eagle when she flies.

Can you believe how well he can write? It's as if the good lord kissed him on the head.

Plus, as I wrote to Maunie, he's easy on the eyes and ears.

I still can't wait to hear about your Kris parties.

Thank you Dawn for being you and for being here for all of us in so many ways. I needed a friend and you were there. I really think great friend is one of the greatest gifts we can receive. Bless you~

Luvs Ya,


Ann said...

Sandee, Do you see why I think you're amazing? Stopping by and leaving a comment on the same post four times is giving away how compassionate you are, as well as an unbelievable friend.

Thank you for awarding me Brillante Weblog Award. I can't wait to see what it is, and will travel your way shortly.

You're the best~


Ann said...

Maunie, I forgot to tell you how much it warmed my heart when I saw how many times you have checked on me.

You're sooo cool~

Thanks for being a million trillion dollar person and friend.

Huge hug~


Ann said...

Anita, Ditto. You couldn't have said it better. I'm glad you enjoyed it and I'm glad to stopped by to visit.

Have a fantastic day. That is if you haven't given on finding a reply.(smile) I apologize for the delay.


Ann said...

Tess, Well, I feel honored to have introduced him to you. I had a guitar teacher start me out on his songs.

I think I should probably look that teacher up and buy him dinner. Plus, if you liked that song, he has more where it came from... Thanks for visiting. :))

And have a great day~


Ann said...

Webkinz World, Your welcome, and thank you for visiting.

Have a fun day~


Ann said...

Eric, you are so right. They certainly don't make them like him anymore.

And todays music mostly "confuses me" (laughing) too.

(laughing) And I love this..."Plug em in and play."

Thanks for visiting Eric. You're one of my favorite people.

Thanks for the smile. By the way, what song is in your head today?

Huge hug~


Ann said...

To all of you, thanks again. You've made my homecoming special. Forgive the typos, I'm still fuzzy...but I will definitely post a Tuesdays question next week, as well as a few more surprises.

So hold onto your hats ladies and gentleman...

Love to you all~


mauniejames3 said...

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Written for Ann

Catch your dreams

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
