And IT happened again …
Don’t know if this happens to you on a regular basis , and I surely do hope it does , because :
- first , it would make me feel not so stranger , “different-er” than everyone else
- second , it brings with it some nice surprises
So , it went like this :
Yesterday my dear youngest daughter “made me” ( not a real hardship , because as all of you probably know by now I really like the night and some music ) watch the Grammy Awards with her .
So , dear daughter and I cuddled on the sofa with some pillows , blankets , hot water bottles (have I already told you how cold this house is ?) , and popcorn that she made for us and settled in for a night of entertainment . And by night I mean real night , like in – 01:00 am to 04:30 am .
It was really nice , appreciating some , “bitching” (we’re just two young girls , after all 😉 ) over some others , checking all the comments on the various social platforms (she did , not me …) , singing and dancing here and there (you know , hot water bottles don’t stay hot for long and dancing is a very good alternative) , and “educating” each other on our music preferences .
Then a tribute to Glenn Frey came on with * “New Kid in Town” , which happens to be one of “my musics” , and I hadn’t listen to in quite a while . (* edited to note that the song played on the tribute was “Take it easy” ; a small clip of new kid in town was played sometime during the night ; sorry long night old brain ).
Can you believe the girl had never heard anything by The Eagles besides the song Hotel California ? I immediately thought …well girl , today I listened to all this rap stuff thing , tomorrow you will be showered in Eagles .
No , not really I didn’t (and I actually do like some rap , but just some , mind you ) but I made a note in my mind to listen in to a bit of Eagles today .
Then today I had to do this and that like we all do , and didn’t get to listen to any music before I sat for my Morning Cuppa ( well after 4pm , but that’s how things roll around here ) and when I started reading my first blog of the day I was hit ( yes hit is the word ) by Jodi’s There’s a New Bird in Town .
Is this a coincidence ? Yes , of course it is , but still … it happens a lot
So , I do hope you did enjoy Jodi’s beautiful pictures of her new bird in town , my new kid in town tunes , and that one or two of you can relate to my predicament (?) so I will not feel so alone . 🙂
note : me being me , couldn’t decide which YouTube to insert for the few of you who might not know The Eagles . So , the one above is the best for sound , the one below better for seeing Glenn Frey playing live .
