I could not let this one go unmentioned because, at 16, I was never one for dancing, but I loved a good drum beat!
A New Direction!
This Blog was started predominantly by my desire to share my experiences with our 80lbs of fur … otherwise known as Ray. That road ultimately resulted in my book about him “Who Said I was up for Adoption?”
Music is a very strong force in my life and so, inevitably, it crept into this Blog, along with a variety of other topics which I found sufficiently interesting to share. I even posted some of my poetry which also resulted in a book “Just Thinking”
Meandering through the Blogging community resulted in a book writing partnership which created “The Odessa Chronicles” (stories for children of all ages!).
I have many other interests which were now taking a “back seat” to Blogging, and the only way that I could effectively re-focus was to relegate this Blog to a lower priority in my life, which is where I am currently at however, I just thought of a compromise.
How about I create a regular Post with music as its basis? In fact, I could cover all the years from my first attachment to music … being 1956 when I was 10! The beauty of this idea (from my perspective) is that it does not take much time to come up with a song, and as long as I can find it on YouTube, then all is well!
Stay tuned for a 1956 musical memory. Who knows … it might bring back good memories for you!

“The Village Lanterne”
Last Saturday’s music post linking to Blackmore’s Night “Windmills” triggered some interesting Comments both here, and in my world outside of the Blog! A number of Comments were based on not having heard of Blackmore’s Night before, which is a sentiment that I can totally relate to as I only heard of them by chance a little over a year ago!

The Leslie Spit Treeo were only active from 1988 to 2000, but they recorded a number of interesting songs. “What if?” is one that I really like. Enjoy! Continue reading
I guess it was inevitable that after last Saturday, with Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” incredibly accompanied by David Gilmour’s guitar expertise, I would move forward just a few years to 1982. Continue reading
How could anybody live through the 1970s and 1980s, and not like something by Pink Floyd? Continue reading
