Saturday Night Dance Party!





This is how I am feeling right now.

Dance like no one's watching.


Sing like no one's listening.


"I'm Looking For A New Love" - will you be mine, Valentine?


A bonus - RIP, Cajun (02/16/15); you are still much missed and loved.  May your olives never run out. (Repeat from 10/25/14)

  1. Jody Watley - I recently watched a documentary about "Soul Train" and it seems Jody Watley began her career in entertainment dancing on that show. Same as Rosie Perez!

    Condolences to those that knew Cajun.

  2. Mmm, she moves her body very nicely, but we gorillas prefer a little more meat on our females. ;)

    1. I could give her some of my extra meat, I have plenty to go around. but she better teach me her dance moves in return!

  3. Yes A.M. RIP Cajun. I never got to meet him but before he pasted Cajun left some kind comments on my blog. Sorry I haven't been around much, as you suggested trying to get a new life or just holding together the old one. I'm doing OK just waiting for Spring to get here. Randy H.

  4. M'ning, A.M.
    I don't know either of these tracks and can't hear them either because.....blah, blah, blah. I see that the first of them got to #13 here in '87 so if I could play it I'd probably recognise it.

    Is all well with you and yours. We're relatively hunky-dory here. Another wintry blast, just begun, is set to last us over the next few days. Please let that be the final one. I suppose your own unmelted snow still remains around?

    And with my own salute to the Cajun memory I'll say......
    Have a luverly w/e and -
    Byeeeee!

    1. morning raybeard. currently 10F here with below 0 wind chills. we did not go out of doors yesterday, nor will we do so today. AND spouse has a very nasty cold, so his butt is in bed.

      yes, the snow piles still linger from a few weeks ago. BUT baseball season begins this wednesday, with a rise in temps. and a rise in my internal sap that spring is almost here.

      the cajun was a good man; wish you could have met him in person.

      happy valentines day to you and the pussies!

    2. Thanks, A.M. Although the day means zilch to me (for all practical purposes) I'll convey your wishes to the pussies. They will, like I do, appreciate the spirit for which it's intended.

      BTW: You remind us, on another esteemed person's blog, that you are Virgo with a Libran hubby. I can tell you that I'm Libra with a rising Virgo. How strange is that? Whooooo! We are obviously fated to meet!

      Now I'll leave you to pursue your mourning for that Justice Scaley or something, for whom you must be in deep shock. R.I.P. (with bells on?)

      Delete
    3. I hope we DO get a chance to meet; it would be MY pleasure!

      justice scaley - bwhahahahaha! I am happy that fat ugly lying vicious h8ing bastard is dead! :)

      Delete
    4. Now now, A.M.! From his picture (which is all I know of him) this Justice Scaleyback looked to be quite the jolly fellow. (Didn't ex-Pres Dubya just describe him as having been a man of good judgment?) It was so sad to read that he croaked just at a time which interrupted his hunting trip - taking lethal pot shots at harmless animals, one reckons. Still, if that's the way he he preferred to go he got his way.

  5. It snows
    it melts
    It snows
    it melts
    It's snowing again tonight
    No sign of melting.
    Winter SUCKS, Big Time....
    I'm dancing
    with Mary Chapin Carpenter
    and thinkin' of spring.

    Never met Cajun
    but he left kind comments on my blog.
    The kind ones always go first...

    ....the bastards stay with us.....

    Happy Heart Day

    1. I'm not implying that any of us are bastards...
      just to make that clear.

      (do I use too many dots?........)

    2. I have known many bastards in my time; my blog friends are not bastards. I wish you had had the pleasure of meeting/drinking with the cajun; a delightful gentleman!

  7. Ps.....just so your aware, the OMB is code for oh my balls!

    1. actually, in my knitting/crochet internet social group, OMB means "oh my bob". the social group creators have a french bulldog named "bob"; he is the group mascot.

      but, since I have invisible balls, OMB are ready to drop off in this cold!

    1. HVD to you also! country music in the 80s and 90s was cool. now it's full of GOP idiots, flag wavers, jeebus freaks, drunks.
