Tell us about your blog name. Where did it come from?
Well I had toyed with many names…then someone said name it after an animal you love.
Most people know I love owls and wolves. Just US Wolves didn’t go with what I wanted to write on…though Just Us Owls rang all the right bells. I try to give out little bits of wisdom among my rants and Owls being a symbol of wisdom resulted in my blog being born!
I hope I’ve lived up to the name. I love to write when I have the time and I love all my readers!
A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet? (I hope).
Still playing catch up on this challenge…better late than never right? Day 18: A Song You Love But Rarely Listen To.
I should really listen to this more often…it’s one of my favorite songs.
Day 17: A Song That Makes You Want to Dance.
The Godfather of Soul is always good for making me want to boogie down! Without further interuption on my part…I give you Get Up Offa That Thing!
Day 16: A Song That’s Made You Cry.
I have a tie for this day.
Day 15: A song you love to sing along to.
I love to sing along to all sorts of songs. So here is one of my favorites from the 1980s!
Day 14: A Funny Memory from Childhood.
Well this always gets me to chuckle when I start thinking about it. As a small boy, I had some problems with my speach. I pronounced my Ts like Fs and could not pronounce my Rs. Well you can imagine my mother’s embarrassment when we would go to parades and I would get excited at the Fire Trucks and say: “Look Mom a fire f-uck!” My poor mother would just die of embarrassment and have to explain to people what I was actually saying!
Day 12: The Last Song You Heard
The last song I heard on the radio was from Lady Antebellum. Great little group that I rate up in my favorite, little more rock than country and that’s okay. The song well you’re just going to have to watch the video aren’t ya! 😉
Day 11 On The Soundtrack of My Favorite Movie
I’m noticing a trend here… to get more difficult as we go along or drive Ed crazy!
West Side Story is one of my favorite Plays and Movies. I’d have to say this little number is one of my favorite pieces from the entire play/movie even though the entire score is terrific.
Day 10: A Song By Your Favorite Band.
Now this is where it starts to get hard…
I have a very eclectic taste in music and really have no true favorite bands. So I offer you one of my many current favorites.
This song brings back so many memories of my high school sweetheart. Every couple has a song and this was ours.
Day 7: The Past Summer
Well this song sums up my summer I say. Not only did I get married 🙂 but I also had a heart procedure and I’m still kicking and I don’t need that rocking chair though I’ll gladly take it on the weekend! 😉
Day 6: A Song That Reminds You of A Best Friend.
This day gets two songs. My best friend reminds me of two songs. Truly listen to both of them with both your heart and your mind I know Shaun already knows where they come from!
Day 5: A Song That Is Often Stuck In Your Head
This song can very easily get stuck in my head at a drop of a hat…but could it be the old Italian pride… 😉
Day 3: A Song that reminds you of your parents.
On the rare occasions that my mother would let her hair down and actually showed her human side rather than her tyrant side…she would belt out in song. My mother is a wonderful singer, a high soprano and does a great job of it. Every year in the talent show she does this number a cappella:
