WORDLESS WEDNESDAY / HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Thanksgiving is a time for gathering the family and uniting despite past differences. The holiday offers us a way to let our family members know how much we care about them. But in case you can't get home for the holiday, send them a message of love and thanksgiving to let them know how much they matter to you and of course there's always the telephone!  Just pick it up and say HELLO, ...

So sorry, but wasn't that just the very best.  We have just posted Santa's angel.  Now I bowed my head to say a prayer for Santa's angel... won't you??? Okay, blow your nose and wipe those eyes and warm up those toes because it's time to boogie! Woo Hoo!!! Up next is a song by Lisa Marie Presley Elvis... "Don't Cry Daddy"! (Okay, I fibbed a bit if you're an Elvis fan), but one more song, I promise...

Okay, time to boogie!  Wooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Next up is "Sugar Pie Honey Bunch" by the Four Tops! Just a little ditty I use to boogie to in high school!

FELINE FRIDAY

 


Feline Friday  

Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is: Post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute).

One thing for sure is this is a fun and easy meme to do. So come and join us in Feline Friday.

What better way to start the weekend than with a feline!

Friendly Fill-ins

Each Thursday Ellen of 15andmeowing and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs, provide Friendly Fill-in questions.

Ellen came up with the first two questions and Lorianne came up with the last two questions.

If you need help, please let either Ellen or Lorianne know.

Here are this weeks questions:
1. Something I lost, and was never able to find was __________.
2. When ______________, I want to _______________.
3. _________ doesn’t bother me.
4. I don’t handle _________ very well.

Here are my answers:

1. Something I lost, and was never able to find is my sanity when I'm waiting for a doctor visit and it goes past my time.  I start to pace, and if its really long it gets ugly.
2. When I crochet and I drop or stitch or the yarn breaks, I want to just scream instead it's a big load grunt.
3. When my kids were little they would break something and it never really bothered me.  They'd cry and I explained how broken things are made to mend.  If thing didn't get broke how would I mend them, so it didn't really bother me.  That always worked with my children's tears.
4. I don’t handle traffic very well especially when I was working. Our highways were bumper to bumper during rush hour going to Chicago downtown, so that's when I decided to take a train because me yelling like a truck driver just didn't make it.

Dolly's HALLOWEEN Monday's Music Moves Me!

 

HAPPY HALLOWEEN Monday's Music Moves Me style! Why Do We Celebrate Halloween on October 31?

Halloween falls on October 31 because the ancient Gaelic festival of Samhain, considered the earliest known root of Halloween, occurred on this day. It marked a pivotal time of year when seasons changed, but more importantly, observers also believed the boundary between this world and the next became especially thin at this time, enabling them to connect with the dead. This belief is shared by some other cultures; a similar idea is mentioned around the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, which also typically occurs in October and involves saying prayers for the dead. This is also where Halloween gains its "haunted" connotations.

The History of Halloween Activities

The early pagan holiday of Samhain involved a lot of ritualistic ceremonies to connect to spirits, as the Celts were polytheistic. While there isn't a lot of detail known about these celebrations, many believe the Celts celebrated in costume (granted, they were likely as simple as animal hides) as a disguise against ghosts, enjoyed special feasts, and made lanterns by hollowing out gourds (hence, the history of jack-o'-lanterns). Over time, as Christianity took over and the pagan undertones of the holiday were lessened, the basic traditions of the holiday remained a part of pop culture every year; they simply evolved and modernized.

The mystical rituals of earlier times evolved into more lighthearted fun and games. For example, the somewhat heavy concept of connecting to the dead was replaced with the more lighthearted idea of telling the future. Bobbing for apples, for example, became popular as a fortune-telling game on All Hallows' Eve: Apples would be selected to represent all of a woman's suitors, and the guy—er, apple—she ended up biting into would supposedly represent her future husband. In fact, Halloween previously posed a huge (albeit rather superstitious) matchmaking opportunity for young women in the 19th century.

An oldie, but a goodie.    This next one is just too cool to pass up!


A MUST HAVE... BOBBY PICKETT "MONSTER MASH"!!!


And last, but not least :Screamin' Jay Hawkins in "I put a spell on you"!  It's a little different, but all I can say is "HAPPY HALLOWEEN"!  HAVE A GREAT DAY!
