and why I am such a Flickr fanatic. I found this photo and looks like were both at the same place around the same time. Different cameras of course.  One thing for sure the storms in the distance were pretty intense and for a second -it seemed like the end of the world.

Michael Bublé - Me And Mrs Jones (Official Music Video)

Remember this from 1972? Smooth & sexy for sure and sweeter with a glass of wine in hand.  Some peeps don't care for Michael with his wisp & while he's not Sinatra he does this version justice for sure-Michael's version is not shabby! Think, I'll go and pour another glass & kickback.

yes, I know it's blurry but I like it that way! A reminder of how this year has been so far in such a fast pace blur. The good news is that we're one month closer to the end of summer!

Don't Need Much To Be Happy

Beautiful song and
by Mary Chapin Carpenter
I just love her music!  
Her words always hit close to home for me.  

Don’t need much to be happy
four walls and a roof overhead
books and food in my belly
cool sheets upon the bed

A fire that warms up December
The sound of a thaw in the eaves
sometimes it’s hard to remember
how tough we are to please

            All in good time
            somehow I find
            days that still shine with light
            all in good stead
            I’m safe and I’m fed
          with dreams in my head
          good night

The feel of my hand being taken
driving at night all alone
the breeze on a warm summer evening
and coming home

            All in good time
            somehow you find
            days that still shine with light
            all in good stead
            You’re safe and you’re fed
          with dreams in your head
          good night

Don’t need much to be happy
a friend to soften a fall
and something to show for my labors
after all

I had to learn to be grateful
I had to learn how to see
mistakes that might have proved fatal
are gifts I now receive

How I love cool sheets on a warm summer night! How I miss a good fire on cold December night? How I miss my hand being taken?  I don't drive alone much at night--price of gas is too high!  Tonight's breeze was a welcome reprieve from the day's heat.  I'm thankful for my labors at work-my student's always show me how lucky I am to see their beautiful branches.  At my age, I'm learning to be grateful for the mistakes I've made and for the gifts they now bring me.  Yep, I don't need much to be happy.  Thank you MCC for your beautiful music.
