I'm a lover of music...I know that most people love music and some even make money from it, let me just say that I'll never make money from music...I can't carry a turn with two buckets in hand.  My inability to carry a tune never kept me from singing at the top of my lungs when I was growing up. I'd walk down to the Zip-Mart and pick up a latest copy of Song Hits Magazine, it didn't have the music notes but the words to all the latest hits, run home and sign every song in the magazine before the end of the day.  Today Hal David passed away, most people don't know who he was and to be honest when I heard the name I wasn't so sure myself but when I saw the list of songs he had written I knew that I did know Hal David because I could pretty much sing every song he had ever written, you tell me, do you know these songs?

24 Hours from Tulsa
A House is Not a Home
American Beauty rose

In case you were ear worm is a song that gets stuck in your head and you can't get it out,  so if you click on the Wishin' and Hopin' song you know what's playing in my head...

I now listen to music when in my sewing studio and when I'm working in my office...Pandora is my latest addiction if you've not discovered Pandora click over, it's free, and you can set up your stations and listen to whatever kind of music you could be Country, Jazz, Rock..pick up favorite artist and a station can be set up around that type of will seriously become addicted just like me.

Until Next Time..
Be Kind...
and listen to the music and
