Mom and I thank Hootin Anni for sponsoring.....
This summer we'll be featuring all Beach music, good shaggin' music on TTS day, today's song is Across the Street by
Lenny O'Henry
Across the street there's a party going on

Laughing, and (a Southern Pig Pickin'), dancing and ooooh romancin'

For those who don't know this is a big cooker used to cook a
whole pig for a Southern Pig Pickin
Everyone's invited but me.
I'm feelin' just as sad as can be
Across the street
Through my window I can see
There's my best friend Billy, oooooh with my Lilly
Making out (not really) behind my back,
Like all the other wolves in the pack

Across the street goin' to go out and get my Lilly
Make her feel silly, ooop knock out Billy
There's one thing she's got to learn
I love her so she'll never return
Across the Street.
Mom likes this song and wanted to use it eventually.  She was pleased when she found out our  neighbors were planning a graduation party for their son on June 18, 2011.

  1. Hi Madi,

    Welcome to our blog!
    How nice of you to come and visit us!
    Now we return the favor, we must say you are one pretty lady!
    We look forward to read your adventures!

    xoxo Lars and James

  2. C, growing up on that coast I thought I had heard all the music from back then. You got me on this one but I really like it.

    But did you get invited to the Pig Pickin'? Yummy!

    Hugs & Purrs,
    J, Cindi Lou and The Krew

  3. That sure would be a whole lotta meat in that pig cooker! Hope you got some!

  4. I have not heard this song before, but if it inspires that first picture of you it is great in my book. You look so annoyed. I think it might be my favorite picture of you ever!

    Your pal, Pip

  5. Madi,

    Da nerve of your neighbors not invitin' you to da pawty! ;) Happy Thursday my furiend.

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  6. Madi, I think it was best for you to stay home...not sure you would have enjoyed the "pig"...

  7. Hi Madi, The music is purrrfect for this time of year. Purrrrrfect (get it?) lol. You look like you might be planning on joining in that party next door... If so, remember> no drinking and driving. I hope you're having a great summer...

  8. Purrrect time for a party song

    Madi, you can come to my party and bring mom with you :)

  9. Whata super groovy song~!!! We hope your furriend, Billy and Lilly, bring ya a plate of that smoked, southern pig~!!!

  10. Oh, da pawty cross da street. Is dat why I couldn't sleeps last nite?

  11. Oh........well, if'n you don't get invited, we all will MAKE a party in your honor!!!

    Great photos. Fabulous song...and coinciding with the lyrics pURRfectly.

  12. Well, I'll be, a song I never heard of. But, a party isn't a party without Madi there.

  13. You do look sad Madi. Hopefully Mom gave you some kittie treats to make up to you for you not being invited. Or maybe a nice tuna cake!

  14. Love that song!! It makes me want to go to the beach right now!!! I love the beach!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  15. Happy Thursday, Mads!!!!!!! Mama hopes you will have some Beach Boys while you're doing the beach songs. :)

  16. I'm sorry you weren't invited to that pawty, Madi. They could've at LEAST picked some pig for you and brought it over.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  17. I grinned from ear to ear throughout this post. Oh, except the part where you were left out of the BBQ, I'm very sorry about that.

  18. Well Madi, you stumped us, never heard that song before, but it sounds like a great party song!

    Is pig pickin' kinda like a pig pull?! LOL
    Now we've heard of them in Texas!

    I'm not sure you'd like it, but your peeps would!
    Chin scratches to make you not feel left out!
    Hugs to Mom for the Thursday song!

  19. Hi beyootiful Madi! Thanks for stoppin by my blog. I immediately came here and followed yours. I hope you got some noms from the pawty. Hope to see lots of more of your pretty face. Purrs from Prancer.

  20. Madi, I went here quickly to send many kisses to you!

  21. We have never heard that song Madi. That is a very big oven for pig pickin'. We have never heard of that either.

  22. Madi.... great post. Love it all.

    pawhugs, Max

  23. Now Madi
    I know that there was enough pork in that cooker to share with you...that was not fair you weren't invited!

  24. Madi, we aren't familiar with that song. The neighbors should have shared their pork with you.

  25. Great song, Madi!
    I am impressed with that thing that cooks a whole pig! Yummy!
    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
