Thursday Theme Song: Dancin' Shaggin' On the Boulevard

On last week's Thursday Theme Song Mom featured our first Beach Music song of the summer by The Drifters.  She also mentioned there was an official Beach Music Dance called The Shag.  Today we'll show you a :50 second video of the ultimate Shaggin' couple.  Watch their feet...that is what Shaggin is all about. Basic steps are very smiliar to kicking sand with your bare feet. The second video is my Thursday Theme Song by the one and only best beach music group ever Alabama, Dancin' Shaggin' on the Boulevard. Most people recognize Alabama as a Country band; however, they got they start in the business in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

We thank Hootin Anni for sponsoring
We're supposed to have original pictures on TTS day.  I hope just for today you'll allow me to step a wee bit out of the box with two videos.

Here are a few verses of the song.  All of the places/ bands mentioned in the song were real.
Myrtle Beach was the spot to be in the 1960s!!

Well the Magic Attic's where the music rolls
And the Army-Navy's got ol Jackie Soul
Down on Peaches Corner there are Good Ol'Boys
and Mother Fletcher's makin' lots of noise
They're dancin' shaggin' on the boulevard
Well the Tams are playin at the Port-o-Call
And the Drifters underneath the Boardwalk
At the Spanish Galleon and Ol' Fat Jacks
Jukebox playin' and the place is packed
You bet they're dancin' shaggin' on the boulevard

Got the top down and the traffic's slow
Sun fun week and we all go
Where the girls are sunnin' and a lookin' good
I never met them but I wish I could
The Embers singin' up on Ocean Drive
And the Castaways are getting loud tonight
At the Electric Circus they all gettin' down
And the Carousels spinnin' 'round and round
See them dancin' Shaggin' on the boulevard...

Please click on the below video to hear the one and only
Alabama sing their signature song.

Enrichment for WHOM?

Thank you for your lovely comments to Mom yesterday..
she passed with flying colors and is already back to
being aggravating...MOL MADI 
********
This cat toy used to be fun.  Anytime I felt like poking my paws in the various holes  at the little ball dangling from the middle, it was simple to do.  Now that Mom is in my face ready to serve me anytime she she decided it was too simple so she stuck a ton of my tote toys into all the holes to enrich it. Inquiring minds want to know is it to enrich my life or Mom's.  In my opinion she looked pretty silly enriching it.
However, just to humor her I decided to check it out
whoa that pink feathery tote tickles my nose
Oh my cats look who I found...poor little Pounce the Beanie Baby kitty is upside down.
Hang on buddy I'll pull you out by your tail
Poor little guy all the beans rushed to your head
I bet you can hardly breath.....
Stay still I'll give you C(at)P(uff)R(evival)...you'll be fine in no time

Pounce your sweet little nose is pink again. I think you'll be ok now.
Mom has 2 Beanie Babies, Pounce and Zip. When she saw Pounce she had to have him
because his birthday is August 28 which is the same day as my human sissy.

Zip's birthday is the same as my Grandma's March 28.  They were both here
long before me but I think it is kind of funny they both have pink noses just like mine.

Pounce, Zip and I thank you for stopping by to say hi.
Hugs Madi

Steeple Sunday #34: St. David's Chapel

Today I'm featuring St. David's Chapel on the campus of
St. David's School, which is private independent Episcopalian School.  I've admired this Chapel and the architecture for many years.  So you can imagine my glee, when we received an invitation to a wedding in St. David's Chapel next month. The first picture is the view seen from Lassiter Mill Road.  The windows all around the Chapel and School are nearly floor to ceiling. It will be a beautiful venue for a 5:30 wedding.  The lighting will be amazing.  The seating inside is theater style so everyone will have the best seat in the Chapel.
 This picture is from the top parking lot looking down on the Chapel
 Close up of the alcove in the first picture.


St. David's School was founded in 1972 as Hale High School.
In the fall of 1990 St. Timothy's Middle School grades 6-8 was added to the existing campus of Hale High.
By the end of the school year the Board of Trustees voted to combine Hale High School and St. Timothy's Middle School.
In 1994 a 5th and 6th grade center was added. 
In November 2002 the Board of Trustees voted to add grades K-4
 At the beginning of the school year 2003-2004, the school would offer Grades K-12 and the new official name would be
Side view, with the attractive white wrought, is a parking deck.
From the street I thought it might be a gynasium.

St. David's remains one of the most distinguished private college preparatory schools in the Triangle area. 
Thank you for stopping by today.
