Happy Fourth of July to my American friends. Thank you to my friends from all over the world for watching this video and visiting A Nice Place In The Sun. Have a great day!

I was just here and then as soon as I leave a new post comes up. Way cool. Love this rendition. Ray Charles rocks.

Have a blessed Independence Day. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Simon. ♥♥♥

Laughing...I was having a fight with YouTube. Bless you for coming back and I hope you have a fabulous Independence Day! I think "Independence Day," sounds better than Happy Fourth and I forget that every year.

Yes, Ray Charles did "Rock" and so do you. I'm glad you like it. And, by the way, I love your "Lee Greenwood's "God Bless The USA" A Cappella" post on Facebook. Excellent job. Now, I'm on my way to Comedy Plus.

"Big hug" back to you and I will send Simon his "scritches." It's so sweet of you to think of him. And, I promise, I really do tell him.

Thank you, Ann, I hope you had a great Independence Day as well and I'm sorry I haven't stopped by http://annssnapeditscrap.blogspot.com/ lately. I've been trying to catch up with piles of work. But, I'll be back!

Thank you, again for such a great comment. And I'm glad you liked the video. I miss Ray Charles.

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
