Happy Birthday, Mother...!


Today is my Mother's birthday! In honor of her special day, I'm playing a song from one of her and Dad's favorite bands from their day...!

Take time to listen to a bit of music from a simpler time, a more honest time, a time of real hero's!



Good music, huh? That's because my folks were good people! My Mom still is a very special lady...and I'm sure that my Dad, where ever He may be, is looking down at Mom and smiling. He may like this song as well...and if so, that thought pleases me to no end!

Happy Birthday, Mom! May you have many, many more! I love you...!

Now let's get some coffee and sit outside...we can make a toast to my Mother's special day!

Hey Sue...
I have to admit that she is a pretty special lady, indeed! She still sews, quilts, and she and my baby Sis recently joined the D.A.R.

Hey, I sure appreciate you dropping by today!


Hey Kris...
Thank you, my friend! She is in North Carolina visiting with my big sis, but comes back to Houston Tuesday! Guess I'll have to bake her a cake!

Thanks for the visit today7, Kris!


Hey Momma...
I'll be thanking you for her! Nice of you to come by and offer your good wishes this morning, lady!

Have a good day, and thanks for coming by!


Hey Ben...
I kinda figured you might like that music, my friend! It's a shame we don't have bands like that any more, ya know?

Hey, I appreciate the visit, buddy!


Hey YOF...
Keeping me in line hopefully will be a full time job for a while! At least in my imagination...!

Thanks for the kind words and for the visit today!

Also, thanks for the Glen Miller...I grew up listening to big band music and still enjoy it.
