February Fling – 2019

One-Liner Wednesday

One of my favorite sayings made even better!

My daughter and I were browsing the store Tuesday Morning and saw this sign.  Cracked me up so I took a picture.  She said, “I gotta buy that” and did!  
One-Liner Wednesday - Go ahead, think the worst

February Fling – 2019

Just another quick one because the Love Is In Da Blog prompt for today is music from the 1950’s and I was born in 55 so I’ll choose the song that was #1 the day I was born:

Sincerely by the Maguire Sisters

Sincerely, oh yes, sincerely
’cause I love you so dearly, please say you’ll be mine
Sincerely, oh you know how I love you
I’ll do anything for you, please say you’ll be mine
Oh Lord, won’t you tell me why
I love that fella so
He doesn’t want me
But I’ll never never never never let him go!
Sincerely, oh you know how I love you
I’ll do anything for you, please say you’ll be mine
Oh Lord, won’t you tell me why
I love that fella so
He doesn’t want me
But I’ll never never never never let him go!
Sincerely, oh you know how I love you
I’ll do anything for you, please say you’ll be mine
Please say you’ll be mine
Songwriters: Alan Freed / Harvey Fuqua

Cute little song, no?

February Fling – 2019

Time for Song Lyric Sunday again.  Wonder if anyone has heard how Helen is doing.  Better I hope.  Jim is hosting again and the prompt is River/Stream/Creek/Brook.

Gotta go with Tina Turner and River Deep, Mountain High.

River Deep – Mountain High
When I was a little girl, I had a rag doll
Only doll I’ve ever owned
Now I love you just the way I loved that rag doll
But only now my love has grown
And it gets stronger in every way
And it gets deeper, let me say
And it gets higher day by day
Do I love you, my oh my? Oh baby
River deep, mountain high
If I lost you would I cry
Oh, how I love you, baby, baby, baby, baby
When you were a young boy
Did you have a puppy?
That always followed you around
Well, I’m gonna be as faithful as that puppy
No, I’ll never let you down
‘Cause it grows stronger like a river flows
And it gets sweeter, baby and heaven knows
And it gets sweeter, baby, as it grows
Do I love you, my oh my? Oh baby
River deep, mountain high
If I lost you would I cry
Oh, how I love you, baby, baby, baby, baby
And it gets stronger in every way
And it gets deeper, let me say
And it gets higher day by day
Do I love you, my oh my? Oh baby
River deep, mountain high
If I lost you would I cry
Oh, how I love you, baby, baby, baby, baby
I love you, baby, just like Robin loves to sing
I love you, baby, like a flower loves the spring
And I love you, baby, like a school boy loves his pet
Songwriters: Jeff Barry / Ellie Greenwich / Phil Spector

Tina is another artist that I would love to see again.  We saw her years ago and she is such an energetic performer.  I had a poor camera back then so my pictures are not what I’d like but I did make some pretty neat scrapbook pages out of them.

Have you seen Tina Turner?  Think she’ll tour again?  Probably be another one of those ones that it will be extremely hard to get tickets for.   Happy Sunday all!

February Fling – 2019

Sadly, the shed could not be constructed yesterday because of the rain.  Hopefully Monday will be rain free and they can go ahead with it. 

The prompt for today in Linda’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “words that end in -ly”  My new studio is just about all that’s on my consciousness these days.  Is that even a thing?  I know it’s really exciting for me even though it’s going to be a lot of work with the painting and moving everything out there.

I was also able to chime in today with the Love is in da Blog theme of songs from the 1940’s with this one:

Have I Told You Lately That I Love You

Have I told you lately that I love you
Could I tell you once again somehow
Have I said with all my heart and soul how I adore you
Well darling, I’m telling you now.
My world would end without a mem’ry of you
I’m no good without you anyhow
Oh, have I told you lately that I love you
My darling, I’m telling you now.
Have I told you lately how I miss you
When the stars are shining in the sky
Have I told you why the nights are long when you’re not with me
Well darling, I’m telling you now.
Have I told you lately when I’m sleeping
Every dream, I dream is you somehow
Have I told you that I’d like to share your love forever
Well, darling, I’m telling you now.
My world would end without a mem’ry of you
I’m no good without you anyhow
Oh, have I told you lately that I love you
Oh! darling, I’m telling you now.
Songwriters: Scott Wiseman
Have I Told You Lately That I Love You lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group

The lyrics are slightly different on the version sung by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters:

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Could I tell you once again, somehow?
Have I told with all my heart and soul how I adore you?
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

This heart would break in two if you refuse me
I’m no good without you anyhow
Dear, have I told you lately that I love you?
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

Have I told you lately that I miss you?
When the stars are shining in the sky
Have I told you why the nights are long when you’re not with me?
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

This heart would break in two if you refuse me
I’m no good without you anyhow
Dear, have I told you lately that I love you
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

Have I told you lately when I’m sleeping?
Every dream I dream is you somehow
Have I told you who I’d like to share my love forever?
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

This heart would break in two if you refuse me
I’m no good without you anyhow
Dear, have I told you lately that I love you
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

This is the one that I remember best.  It brings back memories of my mom and dad. 

Those lyrics are also different from the ones written by Van Morrison and sung by Rod Stewart:

Have I Told You Lately
Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do
Oh the morning sun in all its glory
Greets the day with hope and comfort too
And you fill my life with laughter
You can make it better
Ease my troubles that’s what you do
There’s a love that’s divine
And it’s yours and it’s mine
Like the sun
At the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray to the One
Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do
There’s a love that’s divine
And it’s yours and it’s mine
And it shines like the sun
At the end of the day we will give thanks and pray to the One
Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do
Take away my sadness
Fill my life with gladness
Ease my troubles that’s what you do
Fill my life with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles that’s what you do
Songwriters: Van Morrison

I’ve seen Rod Stewart twice now.  He really puts on a good show.

Okay, that’s it for my stream today.  I do have a relatively free weekend so I’m going to attempt to get some blog posts drafted and start working on some other things I’ve been putting off lately because of my extra work.  I know you’ve all been missing me terribly!  How you been doing?

February Fling – 2019

I think I found a song that will work for both Song Lyric Sunday (ocean/sea/lake/bay) and Love is in Da Blog’s “kitsch” love song.  To be honest, I had to look up what kitsch meant.  Hopefully I got it right.

Sea of Love

Come with me
My love
To the sea
The sea of love
I wanna tell you
How much
I love you
Do you remember
When we met
That’s the day
I knew you were my pet
I wanna tell you
How much
I love you
Come with me
My love
To the sea
The sea of love
I wanna tell you
How much
I love you
Songwriters: George Khoury / Philip Baptiste

What do you think?  Will that work?

It’s Super Bowl Sunday.  I don’t really care about football except that my husband is in several pools so I want whoever makes us the money to win.  For the last six or eight years we’ve been going to a friend’s house to watch the game.  It is a pot luck and everybody brings something.  Not sure what we’re going to take today – I let my hubby decide that.  I am an introvert and even though they are friends, I get a little anxious every time we go.  Still, I’m the good wife and I know my husband likes  me there so what I usually do is bring some sort of craft to work on.  Today it will probably be some coloring.  What are you going to do during the game today?

February Fling – 2019

Day 2 of Love Is In Da Blog is your most hated love song.  This one is easier.  I liked the movie The Bodyguard but I affirm this song drives me crazy. 

I Will Always Love You
If I
Should stay
I would only be in your way
So I’ll go
But I know
I’ll think of you every step of
the way
And I…
Will always
Love you, oohh
Will always
Love you
You
My darling you
Mmm-mm
Bittersweet
Memories
That is all I’m taking with me
So good-bye
Please don’t cry
We both know I’m not what you
You need
And I…
Will always love you
I…
Will always love you
You, ooh
[Instrumental / Sax solo]
I hope
life treats you kind
And I hope
you have all you’ve dreamed of
And I wish you joy
and happiness
But above all this
I wish you love
And I…
Will always love you
I…
Will always love you
[Repeat]
I, I will always love
You…
You
Darling I love you
I’ll always
I’ll always
Love
You.
Oooh
Ooohhh
Songwriters: Parton Dolly
I Will Always Love You lyrics © Velvet Apple Music, GREENHORN MUSIKVERLAG GMBH CO KG (obo Velver A)
It is sad that Whitney Houston died so young and her daughter’s story is even sadder.  I have one of Whitney’s last songs, Million Dollar Bill, on my phone as the ringtone for my hubby.  Short and sweet today.  Trying to do some catch up in something other than typing…like laundry – LOL  Which love song drives you crazy?

February Fling – 2019

No, I’m not having an affair.  According to the dictionary, one of the definitions of the word fling when used as a noun is:

A short period of unrestrained pursuit of one’s wishes or desires.

February is the shortest month so I figured that I could pursue my wishes and desires this month unrestrained.  (Well, as unrestrained as this introvert can get).

Used as a verb it means to throw, cast or hurl with violence.  I’m not really a violent person but I can fling these blog posts out there can’t I?

We’ll start with this:  Can you spot the differences?

Aside from me being in my craft room in the first one and in an office in the second of course.

How about here?

Yep! That’s the concrete foundation.  Shed coming next week.  It’s a process, but it’s started!

As you do sometimes, I stumbled upon another challenge for the month of February.  This one is from Bee Writes and I found her through some comments on Linda’s last #JusJoJan post.  The challenge is called “Love Is In Da Blog” and it looks like it is another musical one, which is fine by me.

Today’s prompt is “My favorite love song.”  This is a hard one because there are a lot of love songs I like, but I think my all time favorite is “Faithfully” by Journey.

Faithfully
Highway run
Into the midnight sun
Wheels go ’round and ’round
You’re on my mind
Restless hearts
Sleep alone tonight
Sendin’ all my love
Along the wire
They say that the road
Ain’t no place to start a family
Right down the line
It’s been you and me
And lovin’ a music man
Ain’t always what it’s s’posed to be
Oh girl, you stand by me
I’m forever yours
Faithfully
Circus life
Under the big top world
We all need the clowns
To make us smile
Through space and time
Always another show
Then everything
Wondering where I am
Lost without you
And being apart ain’t easy
On this love affair
Two strangers learn
To fall in love again
I get the joy
Of rediscovering you
Oh girl, you stand by me
I’m forever yours
Faithfully
Faithfully, I’m still yours
I’m forever yours, ever yours, faithfully
Songwriters: Steve Perry / Jonathan Cain
Faithfully lyrics © Twist And Shout Music, Love Batch Music, Martin Page Music, Emi Music Publishing France, EMI MUSIC PUBLISHING LTD, WIXEN MUSIC PUBLISHING OBO TWIST & SHOUT MUSIC, SHEPPY MUSIC

Of course, the story is that Jonathan Cain wrote this song for his wife and shortly thereafter they split up and we all know what happened to Steve Perry and Sherry but something about the song still gets to me.  There was a time in our young married life when my husband worked graveyard and I worked regular hours so we did go through some periods where we didn’t see each other.  Lately, since he is retired and I work from home we’re together 24/7 but being faithful to each other has always been very important.  In my mind it even has to do with being faithful to each other, not just because of distance away but also in the way we have changed over the past 34 years.  We are coming up on our 35th anniversary and I still feel toward him the same way I felt when we were first together, yet in some ways we are rediscovering each other now that the kids are grown and our lifestyle is changing. 

So, there’s the First Fling of February.  Hope it didn’t hurt.  Play along with the #Loveisindablog too!
