I know thats a long post but its interesting to see when songs you liked were popular isn't it...

Whaa? ...yes it is!!

Makes the blog looked longer too! And while some would prefer it thicker but that ain't gonna happen. Realizing that the important thing is quality over quantity I think I have covered both....

Zona said...

Happy Birthday MO!!

TINA: I like this song..it amazes me how I never forget the lyrics to the songs of the 70's..eventho I can't seem to remember anything else..weird..

MICHAEL: Only a couple?? ;D

From 51:

J/LIN: Nikki did it! :D

Tinka said...

Good Morning Tina - Isn't George beautiful?
I agree with your husband. I did spend more money on my own children. That was a hyperbole.
I did however spend a few hundred dollars each September getting ready for the new year and I spent at least that over the course of the year. It was worth it. I liked a well decorated room. It was always more inviting.

Tinka said...

Tina - I loved that song. The Barry Manilow version was more my taste however.

Tinka said...

Good Morning Michael - You brought back such happy memories with your list of 70's songs. Thank you for that.
I don't remember there being so many that I loved listening to on my car radio on the way to school and even better on the way home.

Tinka said...

Good Morning Zona-My-Baby.
It's a beautiful day here. The sun is warm but definitely a Fall feeling in the air. The mountains all around us are sparkling with the sun shining on the snow. The leaves are turning red and yellow.
You must visit in September or October. I think that is the best month of the year for showing off our fair city.

Tinka said...

Zona, Dianne and Just_Lin - Thank you for your well wishes for Jack. It was scary but he is feeling much better now. I pray he stays that way. He is the Rock in this family.

Tinka said...

We are having a quiet day. We will take the dogs for a walk in the sunshine ( I will be on my scooter) and I will make an apple pie from our trees in the backyard. Other than that we will just enjoy being alive and happy. Wishing everyone a lovely Sunday. See you tomorrow.

Michael said...

Yes Zona...a couple...or so.. :)


Tinka!

Hi. You prolly already know that GWB will be descending on B.C. on Friday...here is a brief synopsis:

Vancouver , B.C. -- An
upcoming planned speaking engagement in Canada by former President
George W. Bush is again generating a wave of protest. Bush is
reportedly scheduled to speak on October 20th at a gathering in Surrey , British Columbia hosted by Surrey Mayor Diane Watts. But
Lawyers Against the War (LAW) says the Canadian government must either
bar Bush at the border because of his alleged involvement in torture and
other war crimes and crimes against humanity, or order his arrest when
he enters Canada both to ensure he is prosecuted here or elsewhere, and
to prevent him from returning to safe haven from prosecution in the
United States.

________________________

you know that since Obama put the kabash on prosecuting him the chances of justice are slim.

This is where you come in!

Go to Surrey and if the Canadian cops don't grab him then you can make a citizens arrest!

Try to dress in black...something chic you know...take your own handcuffs...just act like you are going to shake his hand and slap on the cuffs!! One on your wrist and one on his....

This of course will catapult you to INTERNATIONAL MEDIA STAR in a matter of hours...there will be movie and book deals coming at you...interview requests...all of which I will handle as your agent and publicist(30%)...tyvm!

We'll...ah...I mean..you will be richer and even more famous than ever....I'll handle all the busy work and all you'll have to do is the "Queen Wave"..mostly....

oh! ...and GWB will serve as an example to all the other corrupt republicans...that if you do the crime...YOU DO THE TIME!!

is Thursday good for you?

Tinka said...

First of all Maureen, my beautiful friend. I just checked and I did not wish you Happy Birthday first thing this morning. That was my plan. Then when I skimmed down to see who was in the nest I started to post to them. Please forgive me and chalk it up to my short term memory loss. Have a wonderful birthday. I love you lots. Tink.

Tinka said...

Now to Michael - Being a non-confrontational Canadian I cannot comment on your well written essay. As I no longer travel I can't even consider your plans for me. I will only say that we Canadians were very hurt when Bush thanked every country but Canada after 911. When the planes were ordered to stop flying hundreds of them landed in Canada. Some small communities on the East Coast took all those passengers into their homes and treated them like family for about 4 days. I think that deserved a thank you don't you?

Michael said...

Tinka....

Well I think this would be an even more opportune time to tell GWB how Canadians feel about that...

nothing says it better than 3 hots and a cot!

Could Jack go?

Seriously though...I think everyone remembers all those Jumbo Jets lining Canada's runways and the amazing efforts that Canadians made to help those people...

I didn't know that support had gone unnoticed by GWB but it doesn't surprise me....he's a huge jerk...

Obviously he wouldn't be traveling to B.C. if there were any chance of an arrest although the law is very clear on the matter. If he is not arrested it just means that Canada has been pressured by our present administration to look the other way as with Spain and other countries...

Maureen said...

Thank you all for the lovely birthday wishes, here and on FB, and the song on the front page!

TINKA...I hope Jack feels even better each day and stays well.

Dianne/Denver said...

Wahoo--conrats JL on ur 49ers. Good win

Just_Lin said...

My computer died today. : ( I did a little farming on my son's laptop. It's difficult for me as I'm used to using a mouse. I at least have this Android. I guess I have to shop for a computer. What a pain in the ass.

Just_Lin said...

Dianne Thank you! That was an exciting win today and hard fiught.

Just_Lin said...

Michael Thanks for the memories.

Just_Lin said...

Zona Why am I not surprised? I always seem to get some kind of injury when I play with the dog.

Just_Lin said...

Tinka I'm glad to hear Jack is feeling better. Your day sounds wonderful. How did the pie come out?

Just_Lin said...

Tina You are both beautiful and handsome today.

Just_Lin said...

MO I hope you had an especially great birthday this year. Xoxo
