"I'm Singing in the rain", Gene Kelly



My friend Eric from The Speedcat Hollydale Page left the link to one of my favorite songs and videos in a comment, and it cheered me up so much, I decided to share it with you. Thank you Eric, my buddy, you never cease to make me smile.

I think my friends in the Blogging community are some of the best people ever, ever, ever... I appreciate all of your comments to my posts during this difficult time for my family, city and state. E-hugs to you all~

O.K. I'll stop with the mush. Please, enjoy "Singing in the Rain" compliments of my dear friend, fantastic blogger, and brilliant scientist, Eric from The Speedcat Hollydale Page.

I hope you enjoy watching this man dance as much as I did...golly, Gene Kelly could glide. I love his heavy tap splashes in the puddles of rain...

"brilliant scientist" ... ha haa!! I like that.

You know, this morning at work I had a song in my mind that just would not go away ... one that I did not like so much, but I just kept on singing it.

I just heard Tim McGraw's "If You're Reading This" on the radio. I LOVE singing along with that song - a bit sad, but so melodic.

The video?? One of the greatest ever :-)

Hope you are well and safe...

Eric, I hate it when a song you're not crazy about gets stuck in your head. Because you cannot get rid of it easily... sort of like having a bad taste in your mouth.

And you're right about Tim McGraw's "If You're Reading This." He is good with melodies. Thanks for the video Eric, I've watched it about five times...(laughing)

Gene Kelly was a wonderful dancer. I love the heavy tap in the puddles. It's a treat~

And BTW you are a brilliant scientist. And I'm not buying anymore lottery tickets. :))

Hug hug~

Take solace in the fact that you appreciate classics like this. There's a lot of crap being produced today. Like you I'm a relatively young guy but I respect and appreciate the great artists of yesteryear and enjoy music and dance from the past.

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-

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.

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...

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

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
