3 Thursday Songs (Re-blogged)

I’ve been busy with some projects so I’m re-blogging this Thursday post from August.

Here are three songs on this Thursday afternoon. Music always puts me in a creative mood.

Leap Year Day!

29th February…like an election in the U.S., it only comes around every four years – but it is far more welcomed, I think! The Google doodle in honour of it is cute…I like bunnies!
😀

I even know someone born on ‘Leap Day’ – a guy named Dean in Alaska, originally from Seattle. When he first introduced himself, he said that he was only 4 – 1/2 years old, which made me laugh! You do the math and figure it out, LOL

I’m sitting here with my first cup of coffee, looking out of the window. It’s mild and pleasant out there this morning; a little cloudy, but no rain. It’s been so warm here the past two weeks, that it feels like springtime already! The flowers are blooming on the rhodie bushes; buds are exploding on every tree, and we finally identified a funny-looking bush that was growing near the porch. It hadn’t shown any leaves or flowers for over a year, but now it’s revealed itself to be a pussy-willow! It has little fuzzies all over it, LOL – I’ll take some pics of it and post them later on in the week.

Since it’s a rare day, I’ll do something rare and tell one personal thing about myself. Five surnames in my family tree are: Braithewaite, Dunn, Harris, Murray, and Pinckney. Interesting, no? I’m looking up the origins of those names – familial histories are fascinating!

Finally, here are a few pictures of a project that has been progressing in fits and starts since 2010. We acquired a 1937 Plymouth pickup truck (PT50) on 25 January of that year, and took possession of it in March. The restoration process has been an amazing thing to witness, and the finished project is beautiful. Yes, it runs! I’m working on uploading the videos from my phone, so they will be posted as soon as I get it figured out!

New Year’s Eve…2015!

Here it is…New Year’s Eve! Well, it still is in my neck of the woods – I know that it’s already New Year’s Day in Australia, Japan, India, Tibet, the Philippines, Europe, every country in Africa, and Iceland!

My other, in-depth posts about awards and other things will have to wait, as my computer will be crashing often until I’m able to upgrade the other components. In the meantime, editing blog-posts will take much patience – at least my game runs properly, so I’m still able to get my frustrations out through much virtual slaughter! Hopefully, I’ll get to engage in quite a bit more role-playing in 2016 than I did in 2015…the good kind, of course.
😉

I’ll keep this post short and sweet…Happy New Year, everyone!

Slade: “Here’s to the New Year”

Hey lads and lasses, come raise up your glasses
Make sure they’re filled up to the hilt
Goin’ on the brink again, buy me a drink
And I’ll show you what’s under my kilt – whoo!

Chorus:
So here’s to the New Year
Here’s to yourself
Cheers to you far and near
Here’s to your health!

Hey lads and lasses, come raise up your glasses
The party’s been rockin’ all day
Goin’ on the midnight and all of us getting tight
Big Ben is bangin’ away!
(Chorus)

One more wee toddy in our lily bodies, I’m hope (s)he’s the same over there
We’re gonna let the new year in – what noise, what a din
All put your hands in the air…come on!
(Chorus x2)
La, La-La, La La, La-La-La La…(repeat and fade)
