There is a song from the Fifties, “Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets”. Well, I guess I should change it to say “Whatever Nan Wants, Nan Gets.” This wasn’t always true. As a matter of fact, I can say with a straight face that I never got anything (of importance) that I wanted (or needed)..

As usual, if the music bugs, go to right bar and pause it! I’m telling you, I have NO idea what happened to last year. Wonderful things happened but the year zip-p-p-p-ped by! So, I plan to have an even better this year starting with… Whoo hooo! My birthday is this week. No, I am..
People get all huffy around this time of year, worrying, fighting and fretting about the use of the words “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Holidays” and “Season’s Greetings” and whatever else is out there.

We just had a majorly COLD ice and snow storm (bad for Arkansas). I know for some Northern people, this is no biggie; however, the one thing I missed when I moved to Arkansas was SNOW. I was raised more in snow-areas than not, and while there were times I thought, “I can’t take any more..
One of my favorite songs is “What Are You Doing The Rest of Your Life?” The lyrics are written by Alan Bergman and Marilyn Bergman and original music written by Michel Legrand for the 1969 film The Happy Ending. I truly love this song. I’ve always loved songs like this from the 1940’s-1960’s, probably because they were so full of all kinds..
