I'll be leading the vocals for today's featured song, Blue Moon, from atop my blue couch. Warning to all, my high beams are turned on so BEHAVE this is a peppy song.
Blue Moon you saw me standing alone without a dream in my heart without a love on my own
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for you heard me saying a prayer for somebody I really could care for,
And then there suddenly appear before me the only one my arms will ever hold I heard somebody whisper, "Please adore me" and when I looked the moon had turned to gold
Blue Moon now I'm no longer alone without a dream in my heart without a love of my own.
The original song was written by Rodgers and Hart and titled "Prayer" it was intended for Jean Harlow to sing it in Hollywood Party. Neither Miss Harlow or "Prayer" appeared in Hollywood Party. There are several versions of Blue Moon but the 1961 is heard most often...and it is a lively version.

In July my BDFF Jazzi's parents started building a garage.
They asked all their friends to guess when they thought the project would be completed. Mom and I put our heads together and came up with a wild guess. Lo and behold kitties and puppies we guessed the exact date October 9. My prize arrived yesterday
The package was full of foodables and toys...Jazzi well done!! You went to the 'dark side' Feline side of the pet store and struck gold!! I have a package of Whiskas treats which I love, 2 packages of Savory Pate, Mom says that is French for 'oh Madi you are going to love this'. I had no idea Mom was bilingual.
In case you don't recognize it...this is my VERY HAPPY tail giving everything a Madi sniff of approval
All of a sudden I got a whiff of something kind of fishy...I gave it an evil eye..and told it to back off
But did it listen NOPE....so had to whack it up side it's fishy head, first a right punch then a surprise left hook
It followed me to the family room and I smacked it again...I had no clue fish could fly...MOL
When I gave Fish my best glassy eyed glare, he realized he was out of his league. He tucked his fins and sank to the floor. I think he knows who is Alpha Cat!!
THANKS JAZZI AND MOM THIS WAS A PURRFECT PRIZE...WHILE MOM IS ON A WINNING STREAK I THINK I BOOK A ROOM IN LAS VEGAS...MOL MADI
I've been begging and pleading with Mom to let me participate in Tasty Tuesday with SUGAR THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER....
I HAVE THE REPUTATION OF EATING ANYTHING THAT DOESN'T EAT ME FIRST...
I heard the fridge open so I came running to see what the peeps were snacking on.
Being the Diva that I am, I had to get right in the midst of the fun, after all I'm part of the family.
Mom put an itty bitty smidgen of vanilla ice cream on the spoon.
I wanted to do a sniff test first so I closed my eyes
I could not identify the smell so I opened my eyes, tilted my head to give it another sniff....
Yummy Mom what is that I smell on your hand? I believe I'd rather have a taste of that.
Mom is addicted to Ice Cream so for some reason she thought I would be too BUT
ALAS she has found a food group that does not tempt my palate
Mom here: I stand corrected...all the times I said Madi would eat anything ....well I was wrong. She gave it the tail of disrespect...she must truly be adopted for any child of mine would eat Ice Cream.
Hugs to Mayzie, Brudder Ranger, Abby and their Peeps
