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.

Madi demonstrates a law of Physics....

WHAT GOES UP........


 MUST COME DOWN
Hi friends Madi here....I love this chair here but it doesn't belong here.   Our Christmas Tree is sitting where the chair belongs!!!
BUTT when it is here I take full advantage of it.  Nearly 95% of the time when I enter the family room
I take a running start for this chair...landing on the back then quickly to the seat.
It is the best seat in the house this time of year lots of afternoon sun shines on me.

Christmas Exchange Bonaza: Thanks Jack!!!!

Mom and I, first and foremost, thank JAZZI and her Mom for hosting the 2nd Annual Christmas Exchange!!
Jazzi's mom (Ms. D) collected all of the names who wanted to participate threw them in a TACO Shell (MOL) bowl.  Then Ms. D painstakingly paired each name with a partner. 


the most handsome Yellow LabraPuppy in the entire Southwest was given Madi's name. Jack and his most capable assistant crossed over to the dark side to took on the moumental task of shopping for a FELINE Diva. Our package arrived on December 9th. 
Pull up a comfy chair, grab your favorite beverage and some popcorn the unveiling is about to start.

Mom: Oh my stars Madi this is a big, heavy package. 
Madi: Do you think maybe Jack is inside!!!?? 
Mom: Look it is addressed to both of us...that is interesting
Madi: No way, today is all about Moi!!!
(please click on any picture to enlarge)

Madi: Mom there ARE two presents
Mom:  I told you it was addressed to both of us!!

Madi:  Gosh look at the purrty wrapping paper!!!  Well done Jack!!
I BET the big one is for ME?
Mom:  Really?  We'll open the small one first...(LOL)
Mom:  Oh my word Madi  you were right this one is for me.
The most purrfect book in the world...
The Steeples of Old New England
Madi:  How in the world did TG and Jack know you love steeples? 
Mom: Remember, last year beginning in March-August our Sunday
blog post was called "Steeple Chase"?  We featured steeples of all of the churches near our home. TG and Jack are very thoughtful....
Madi:   Ya da, ya da, ya da....lets get to mine!!!


Madi:  Are you sure all of the presents are out of the box?
Mom:  Don't be greedy!!!
Madi:  S O R R Y, mine's the biggest I'm excited
Holy smoke, it is a Cat It: Senses Play Circuit
and an assembly required  Instruction book.

Mom: Please read the instructions to me
Madi:  No can do, it is in French, German and Spanish. 
I only read English.....you are on your own!!! 

Mom:  I can read pictures....
Madi:  Really?  Well hurry up you aren't reading fast enough.

Mom:  Ok your highness it is all together
Madi:  Finally, I'm glad you aren't paid by the hour....MOL
Mom:  Right because it took only two minutes so it's a freebie!!!
Madi:  Oh lookie there is a ball in here AND IT MOVES. 
Let's get this party started!!!!
NOTE FROM the MOM:  For all who are NOT owned by a Cat...you should know they are ALOOF...they don't instantly show
pleasure...that would be beneath them. They like to keep everyone in suspense.  That being said...please, patiently, watch this 3 minute
video of Madi and her most delightful gift.  (Again, we apologize for the clicking)  If you listen carefully, you'll hear a few grateful Meows in the beginning.  The funniest part is when Madi accidentally takes part of the top off...then acts like it is going to bite her.
TG and Jack we thank you both very, very much for the thoughtful
gifts!!!  She has actually played with it a lot since I took this
Video.
