TRIBUTE TO NINA

Mom and I were so very sad to learn that Nina left this 
world for the Rainbow Bridge on Friday
Nina had the most soulful face and loving chocolate 
brown eyes...she was well loved and she loved well

Click here to leave Nina's people a word of comfort
Ironically today's Saturday Photo Hunt word is 
ESCAPE
Nina escaped her sick and tired body to  Run pain free. Nina we wish you lots of sun puddles and may gentle breezes kiss your beautiful face. 

IN MEMORY OF NINA!!

Thursday Theme Song: NORTH CAROLINA GIRLS

WE THANK HOOTIN ANNI FOR HOSTING


TODAY'S SONG IS
CAROLINA GIRLS,
BY GENERAL JOHNSON AND THE CHAIRMEN OF THE BOARD
MOM CHANGED/ADDED WORDS IN RED

We invite you to click on the excellent video  to hear this great *beach song by General Johnson and The Chairmen of the Board.  Beach music also has its on very unique dance called
The Shag** a swing dance that originated in South Carolina in the 1940s and still is their state dance
*Beach music definition: Beach music is usually defined as brassy, easygoing pop-soul with a very sweet leading edge: the group Chairmen of the Board, famous for their genre-defining 1970 single "Give Me Just A Little More Time,"  and Carolina Girls are considered the kings of this style, with the Tams -- famous for 1963's "What Kind Of Fool (Do You Think I Am)" -- coming in a close second. 

  



(North) Carolina Girl  you are the best in the world
You're so fine girl, you are one of a kind sweet (North) Carolina
Girl

(North) Carolina girl (Carolina Girl) sweet Southern Pearls
I can't get enough of you (North) Carolina Girl



I love the way you walk
 I love the way you talk

You are so fine, 

You are so sweet (North) Carolina Girl
California girls are so sixties, New York girls are nifty
But (North) Carolina Girls got good looks and 
superior softness too


(North) Carolina Girls (Carolina Girls) Sweet Southern Pearls
You're so fine girl, you are one of a kind sweet (North) Carolina
Girl
You make me say Wooo (Carolina....Nothing finer) when you snuggle up close for a nap you are sweeter than candy hotter than heat

and very precious than a special moment you share with Mom


Now for a beautiful Sax solo...we have to indulge mom she loves the Saxophone
*
*

Chorus repeated

California girls are so sixties, New York girls are nifty
But (North) Carolina Girls got good looks and 
sweet personalities too
(North) Carolina girls best in the world (Carolina Girls)
You're so fine, you're one of a kind
SWEET NORTH CAROLINA GIRL

(North) Carolina Girls (Carolina Girls) Sweet Southern Pearls
You're sure tuff girl, I can't get enough of  sweet (North) Carolina Girl

MEOW LIKE A PIRATE

OH TODAY IS GOING TO BE SUCH FUN,
IT IS MY FIRST EVER PAWTICIPATION IN 

Mom found a Pirate Dictionary on Google woohoo
We will attempt to meow like a Pirate 
English word has a strike through.  Pirate talk is in bold italics beside it.

ARRRRG are you  ready?

I gladly admit to looking like  a fool addlepate in this
mask but you know when we do something we go all out


Shiver me timbers Mom Cap'n my Cap'n
has turned into a gun packing woman Wench
 Yo-ho-ho seaman sea dogs there is  non-sailor landlubber 
right side starboard


 Never fear Wench Madi has them in her eyes deadlights

 Sink me! (expression of surprise)  Look at the loot swag we found while looking through our telescope spyglass
Good bye Fair winds!  Matey, Buckos, Me hearties  and Wenches (all pirate talk for crew)  
ARRRRG!
Grab a mug of Rum and be on ye way before me makes ye walk the gangplank.

****************
PURRS AND HUGS TO OUR GIRLS AT ZOOLATRY
Ms. Ann graciously made the Meow like a Pirate button.
Ann, Maggy and Zoey lost their Cap'n Vic yesterday.

When the Cows come Home #3 AND...

EASY LIKE SUNDAY
I stayed up purrty late last night so I'm taking it 
easy today.

Today we'd like to introduce you all to
Moo-vie Buff
We just love her 3D glasses
and they have her standing on a 'red carpet'

 She is wrapped in film
And we thought it was pretty funny the theater is next door
to Chick-fil-la.  You know they have a cow for a mascot telling everyone to EAT MORE CHICKEN!!
