Thursday Theme Song: Theme from a Summer Place

We thank Hootin' Anni for sponsoring Thursday Theme Song.
Today's song is Mom's absolute FAVORITE instrumental,
Theme from A Summer Place.
 Music by Max Steiner, lyrics written by Mack Discant in 1959 for the movie,'A Summer Place' starring Troy Donahue & Sandra Dee.
It has been so cold for the last two weeks, Mom thought this song would warm your hearts and maybe your tootsies. 
The pictures below were taken in Bermuda.  
A very nice Summer Place. 
This kitty was always outside the hotel room when Mom and Dad opened their door.  It is not ME.
The other two pictures were taken on Horseshoe Bay where the sand is pink!!!
The lyrics to the song are beautiful. 

There is a a summer place
Where it may rain or storm
Yet I'm safe and warm
For within the summer place
Your arms reach out to me
And my heart is free from all care for it knows...
There are no gloomy skies
When seen through the eyes
of those who are blessed with love
And the sweet secret of
A summer place...
Is that it is anywhere
When two people share
All their hopes, All their dreams, All their love
There's a summer place
Where it may rain or storm
Yet I'm safe and warm
In your arms
The video is by Percy Faith's Orchestra...we hope you enjoy it.


  1. Ah yes..........sweet memories!

  2. Hmmm, sweet summer songs are the best. The pink sand and blue skies are absolutely beautiful, I would love to be walking on that beach right now.

    The little kitty looks so sweet, it obviously knew which guests were cat lovers.

    Are you still having cold temps? We had warm weather for awhile but now it's getting colder and snow is in the forecast.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    J and Cindi Lou

  3. What great memories! Thanks so much for sharing!
    Treats to ya,

  9. That is a cute kitty, but not nearly as cute as you are, Madi. Sigh, after a prolonged period of sub-freezing weather, I could use a little "summer place."

  10. Hiya bootiful Madi~!!! We hope you have all been well and are getting ready for Christmas! Mom is trying her best and is slowly playing catch up with all the bills. We are so sorry we haven't been on much, but when mom gets her Iodine Radiation, she PROMISES to be visiting EFFURYONE!

  11. This is one of our mama's favorite songs too....and she has been playing it over and over!!!!!!

    We are so thankful your mama has your daddy......and most importantly YOU, gorgeous Madi.

    Love to all of you.

  12. This is just perfect Madi. The beach is so beautiful. Do you get to go with mom to the beach? :) I sure do hope so. Loved these songs. You have a great Thursday :)

  13. Our Beans went to Horseshoe Bay in May when they were on their cruise. Mum wishes she was there now.

  14. Ahhhhhh...that was a very nice song and those pictures are so warm and sunny! I would luv to dig in pink sand!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  15. Aww..yah..Mom loves the song and the summer plaes!! She is really getting into this here LOL


  16. Hi Madi! We think that picking a nice summer themed song is a great idea because it is so chilly out for most people right now. This will warm everyone up a bit!!

  22. Olá, Madi!
    Adorei conhecer suas aventuras! Fiquei alguns minutos admirando suas travessuras... Te acho um gatinho muito fofo e sortudo por ter uma família que lhe quer muito bem. Achei muito lindo o vídeo associado à belas imagens, uma viagem maravilhosa!


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
