Johnny Appleseed Sings - The Lord is Good to Me

This is a Disney Cartoon from 1948. I remember watching these Disney folklore tales, such as Paul Bunyan and this one...Johnny Appleseed in Elementary school.

 I love this song - how can you not be happy and cheerful after hearing it? It is a great way to start the day. It is a shame that Disney is too afraid to use references to God in their cartoons any more. Wouldn't it be nice if they could/would still do that?

If you'd like to see the whole version of Melody Time (1948) with Johnny Appleseed - CLICK HERE

The Lord is good to me
And so I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need
The sun, the rain and an appleseed
Yes, He's been good to me

I owe the Lord so much
For everything I see
I'm certain if it weren't for Him
There'd be no apples on this limb
He's been good to me

Oh hear and mighty blue, blue sky
a doin' as I please
Singing with my feathered friends
Humming with the bees

I wake up every day
As happy as can be
Because I know that with His care
My apple trees, they will still be there
Oh the Lord is good to me !!

Pennywise - Google Maps

I have never been able to walk past a storm drain since I saw Stephen King's "IT" several years ago.  Still scares the heck out of me....

My cousin's wife posted this Google Maps picture on facebook.  I suspect it is a photoshopped thing but me the creeps.

What creepy/scary movie has stuck with you over the years?

Fleetwood Mac - Atlanta June 10, 2013

I have a story I like to tell about how I became best of friends with one of my bestest friends !!!! 
Back in the year 19-mumble-mumble, my friend, Anita and my other friend Cathy (both of them my co-workers at that time) had tickets to go see Stevie Nicks at Chastain Park Amphitheater.  Anita is a fan of Stevie's and Chastain is a great place to see a show.

Well...hours before the show, Cathy canceled and Anita was very disappointed.  So...near the end of the day she said "Do you know anyone that would like to buy these tickets? Cathy canceled.  She isn't worried about losing the money but I don't want to eat my ticket, so I'd like to sell them if I can".  She looked so disappointed.  I said "Well....I don't know anyone that would like to buy them but...if you are looking for someone to go with you, I will buy Cathy's and go with you."  She was like "REALLY??" I had never seen Stevie before and liked her so so "Yes, I would like to go".  So...we went (by the way...I got to go for free - since Cathy felt bad about canceling, she let me have the ticket)

We had such a great time that night and although we were friends before, we had never really done anything together before then.  After that though - we became best of friends - went to movies, plays, concerts and road trips together.  I truly can NOT imagine my life without her in it.  Several years later, due to several factors, she moved back to her hometown and about a year later, she had her son, who is my Godson and I love that kid so much - I'd do anything for him. 

Anyway....her birthday is coming up and what in the world did I see but nothing else that Fleetwood Mac was touring again and guess where they were coming - ATLANTA !!!  I wanted to make sure she would be able to get away and make the trip so I couldn't keep it a secret - she would have to drive over 8 hours after all....I told her about the concert and she didn't hesitate - she said " GET THEM !!"

She, her sister and her son all came down Friday and stayed the weekend.  We had a great time, we watched some scary movies (I still can't believe he talked me into watching "Mama" (which actually was pretty good). We met about 10 or 12 former co-workers for dinner, we had dinner at Dante's Down the Hatch another night (Fondue - a new experience for them both), took some photos downtown and hit the Krispy Kreme

The highlight, and I think she will agree, was The Fleetwood Mac concert.  Oh my gosh!  She had seen them before but I never have.  They are A-MAZ-ING !!!!  They sang hit-after-hit-after-hit and they had a new song "Sad Angel", which I loved!  They performed for almost 3 hours and did 2 encores.  I have a new found respect for Lindsey Buckingham - that dude can PLAY !!!!  He blew me away!  Stevie is just as beautiful as ever and is incredibly talented. 

I took some photos with my cell phone but they didn't come out well - too bad - but I did find the set list from last night.  If they are coming to your town - do NOT hesitate - GO !!!!!!

Fleetwood Mac Setlist Philips Arena, Atlanta, GA, USA, Fleetwood Mac Live 2013

PS: Stevie said that was the first time "Sisters of the Moon" had performed on stage since 1981!  She was very personable and talked the audience a lot - so did Lindsey - they seemed to be enjoying themselves.

MeTV - Family Affair Returns

I love the TV show from the 1960s, Family Affair, I can say that it was probably the fist show I ever remember watching when I was young.  I remember asking my mother many time..."Does the Buffy and Jody show come on tonight?"

I still love it so was thrilled when MeTV started airing it a while back.  Then as TV stations do, I guess they aired them all and eventually changed to a new schedule and I had to say bye, bye to Buffy and Jody again (who I had gotten use to watching before work each morning.)

Well....I just was reviewing my TiVo and see "Family Affair" was on the schedule!! (I keep it on my season pass manager).  I checked MeTV's website and whoo-hoo...their new Summer schedule starts tomorrow and they are bringing back "Family Affair", "Daniel Boone", and "Gomer Pyle, USMC"

So, it may be for the summer only, but I'll take it.
