We have a red hibiscus in a large pot on our patio and some of you may have seen earlier photos of the blooms. Friday evening I noticed these volunteer mushrooms growing in the same pot so I snapped a couple of images with the intent of posting them for a Wordless Wednesday meme later this month. Saturday morning I got up to take our cocker spaniel, Lucy, outside and I was reminded just what can happen in less than 24 hours. Here is what the mushrooms looked like then.
Have an Awe…some Monday and a blessed week.
Monday’s Music Moves Me
Theme for this week’s Monday’s Music Moves Me post is songs with hand claps or finger snaps. Since I am a few days older than dirt, I thought I would start this post with a blast from the past, “Finger Poppin’ Time”.
You may notice a very close resemblance to another tune from the era. The show is American Bandstand, the audience provides the hand clapping, and Chubby Checker introduces us to “The Twist”.
Digging even deeper into the archives, we find the incredible baritone voice of Tennessee Ernie Ford singing 16 Tons. The record sold over 20 million copies and I am sure that Ernie’s fingers were worn out before this song exited the top 40.
Well, as long as we’re lost in the 50’s, we might as well do a little finger snappin’, hand clappin’ and toe tappin’ to “Willie and the Hand Jive.”
