Mother's Day

Shouldn't equate loot with Mother's Day - but hey, all that hard work and pruning, and patience, and standing by them, is paying off. My kids are so good to me. Here is one present - a ZUNE - it holds 7,500 songs - wow! I have even downloaded Irish Drinking Songs for Cats. Now that's something. Lots of Dylan, Cowboy Junkies, Taj Mahal, African Orphans singing songs, all of Paul Simon after he picked up the African sounds, and I'm after more! I am not a music nut either. Most of my life music has taken the low place. First because of finances, a single mom with two kids can barely afford chewing gum, let alone music. Then I became sort of a monk-ess for a decade, and listened to only a limited amount of a certain type of music. Then I've became too busy. Now turning over a new leaf and getting me some portable speakers. I have great ear phones now - can't wait - music in the car, in the office, while exercising, music everywhere! I will have to remember: People! listen to people in my life as well.

All you mommas, have a happy mother's day - if you aren't a momma, and you probably are to kids or cats or puppies or bunnies or somethin' - or you have a momma or a good friend who has nurtured you in some way - have a happy happy mother's day

oh dear - I love my ear phones - hubby sitting behind me on couch ranting on about Immus and people griping about bigotry being bigots and I don't get it - oh yeah, happy to have the music - Dylan, "...ohhhhhhhhh, mamma, you gonna miss your best friend now, you gonna have to find another best friend somehow......mamma don't you let me down." Hmmm, I wonder if Dylan had a prophetic moment about the New Orleans disaster - he's singing about a flood almost sounds like a description of New Orleans 9th ward ....

gotta go, now we are into "Tangled Up in Blues."

Irish drinking songs for cats? I've got to hear those!

Its Marc Gunn and the Dubliners - how about titles like "The Demented Cat Game" and "Catnipping Green" and "When Kitty Eyes are Smiling" and "Furagone's Wake" - These are all "must hears."

I loved when CDs came out. They re-released a lot of albums that I couldn't afford when I was younger. Now we have all those neat download sites that let us buy just the songs we like off an album.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!

Puppy, I will see if I can get the words somehow. You will really laugh! In "Furgone" they talk about burying the cat and planting catnip over him and putting a big bag in with him next to his head. I couldn't help but think of Mr. Anchovy's beautiful cat that just went on to play in heavenly cat fields......

Pickled - I've lost you - will try to find my way back into facebook.....I need to get a program that remembers all my passwords - there is one we use at work called roboform - since my boss is also a computer programmer I'm sure its safe.....

Hey - happy Mother's Day, Gardenia. And welcome to the world of downloading. It's many hours of fun, I can tell you. I can spend all day on Limewire.

Hope you had a great Mothering Sunday, Gardenia!

We took Cat to the "spa" yesterday (we're having our kitchen done this week, and he would have been too stressed out by the noise and the activity, so we thought a little holiday would be just the ticket for him), so I guess he was too pissed to wish me a Happy Mother's Day!

Oh nice prize! I got a homemade apron made with flame material and "Can't Touch This" embroidered on the pocket. Love it!
