Thursday Theme Song: GROOVIN'

While Mom was Groovin' reliving her youth, I had to cover my eyes. 
Evidently, Groovin' means dancing and it was not a pretty sight. 

We thank Hootin Anni for sponsoring today's
Groovy meme day.  As you have probably guessed by now
Mom is featuring Groovin' by the Young Rascals.  This song was playing on every radio and stero in the summer of 1967, which was the year Mom graduated from high school.  Or as the song says the Summer of Love.  
Groovin' on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn't get away too soon
I can't imagine anything that's better
The world is ours whenever we're together

Groovin' down a crowded avenue
Doin' anything we like to do

There's always lots of things that we can see

We can be anyone we want to be
And all those happy people we could meet just....
Groovin' on a Sunday afternoon
we really couldn't get away too soon
We'll keep on spending Sunday afternoons this way
we're going to talk and laugh our time away.
I feel it comin' closer day by day
Life would be ecstasy just you and me endlessly Groovin'....
All of today's pictures were taken in Cameron Village Shopping Center.
The cute little critters can be found at Accipter Gallery.
There aren't a lot of words to the song but the vocals and the music are excellent especially the harmonica. Now sit back, close your eyes and let the Groovin' video take you back in time.  The Young Rascals aren't as young as they used to be but they have not lost their groove!!


  1. I was enlarging all of you photos taking a look at the metal art in the last shots. When all of a sudden in the third photo from the bottom .... I saw a squirrel!

    I love that song, it's so easy going and relaxing (just like Madi).


  2. My mom always liked that song! She was 13 during the "summer of love".

    Cool pictures!

  3. Now that Groovin has made shewhatfeedsme sway around the room and I aint likin what I seeing. Hey Bonny, is there room behind that chair for me? Oh she stopped. Phew.

  7. Madi, humans do the craziest things sometimes...dancing is one of those things.

  8. Yay! I had a good time here today! I'll be humming this tune all day! Thanks!

  9. Great art work! Keep on "groovin'"....

  10. Oh Madi, I'm 15 again when I hear that song!
    Great photos to go along with the lyrics!
    Fun brain worm for the day, dreamin' of a sunny afternoon in Oregon! :)

  11. Hi Madi! We admit we don't really know that one. But we do like all the pictures - those critters are super cute!

    (this is Amy & The House of Cats by the way - we still can't comment as ourselves on some blogs and have to use our OpenID)

  12. Catchy tune and great post today!

    Cats of Wildcat Woods

  13. fantastic photos! I LOVE that song and now.. I have to hear it again. Makes you want to sway and literally groove eh? ( Pandora internet radio has a fantastic selection of music like that .. it's how I stay sane while cleaning the .. house, cat fur, dog fur, kid mess and so on ) :)

  14. Oh, I remember this song, Madi, and I know why it makes your mom dance!

  15. Oh MOm remembers that song and that group!
    Mom says in those days she and her girlfriends used to call into the radio stations to vote for their favorite TOP5 songs and that was one of them.


  16. Madi you poor cat! Mom likes to groove too but my Mom is younger than yours and likes all that 90's girl power and boy band stuff. YUCK. She even tries to dance with me to it!

  17. WOW, did that bring back a lot of memories!
    Have a nice weekend!

  18. Great song Madi! Happy Thursday my furiend!

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  19. Great song!
    I love those doggie sculptures!
    Happy Tuesday!
    Kisses and hugs


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
