A Rose is just a Rose…

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).

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 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:
