Throw another log
baby it’s chilly this Monday Morning
Now I understand the deep chill out there
out there in that state of Michigan
and even up there in
But here in Florida
this morning I’m thinkin we can get frozen fresh OJ off the tree!
as I sit and think back to last night
Grammy’s I can’t help but think
of the opening
and all the many who walked the red carpet
as the show opened wondered of their
“breath”, and wondered if they too were wondering how in the world they would pull it off with their own pain of loss
now having to dig deep into their abilities to have
the show “go on”
and make it fantastic.
We all knew the lights and the bling
would be fantastic,
and the best and worst dressed would not disappoint us,
and would in fact amaze us at times.
Bruce “the boss” still looking fierce after all these years, but maybe it was my ears, as I had trouble understanding the words, but settled to just enjoy his energy and be stunned at the depth of his band.
Adele sweeping the Grammy’s and her unforgettable acceptance speech,
we went back in time
and oh those
with the new and the
and Sir Paul
did his “thing”
performers showed that the
“show must go on”
and on and on
and what was up with the outrageous
GaGa and her getup?
LL Cool was a class act
with his opening, his energy
his prayer that he read
and his ability to
move the energy into one of
“Let’s absorb ourselves in the Universal healing of MUSIC”,
such a truth in the world
no matter who you are.
Music is the Universal Language
that tells a story,
that moves the soul to depths
like nothing ever has
or probably ever will
Whitney Houston take your bow,
dance in the lights of Heaven
along with the greats who have gone before you!
I’m so glad they showed her singing at the prior Grammy’s
and the power of when she moved the audience and the world that watched
for when she was at her prime
she was at her best.
to keep it real
the Grammy’s has in fact snubbed some of the best,
while giving out those little beautiful honors to others
over the years.
But last night
they picked one who is destined to become one that we will surely hear more of, one that has some amazing pipes
who sang her heart out
Whitney when she was at her best
who was able to take that stage with grace,
do her proud.
sure was the one to pick
I hope her life and her sales soar with the eagles
she now will take her place standing strong,
while remembering how wrong stardom can go if one does not monitor themselves and stay with others who can walk along side you with the same honor in a world filled with glamor and pressure
and paths that are sometimes hard to resist along with pain that is often hard to manage.
Thank you Jennifer Hudson for such a moving tribute:

My deepest sympathies to the family
May you find comfort in the days and months ahead as you continually are barraged by the media,
are confronted with stories both real and imagined; questioned and subjected to tabloids and stories that you will need to
rather than take into your systems.
My deepest sympathies to Clive Davis who loved Whitney and saw the raw and sophisticated talent he helped to shape into a superstar; he loved her, he was there to attempt to bring her back to the brilliant voice she once had.
I remember when she sang,
“Didn’t We Almost Have It All”
and all those songs,
what a voice, what a world
life is so very fragile
yes we do have choices in our lives,
but at times
we are not even aware that our choices are out of our own control.
Things can change so quickly.
and be aware of your surroundings,
of those you surround yourself with
of those medications that physicians prescribe to you.
enjoy your life,
the good the bad the scary.

On a great note this chilly Monday Morning,
our friend Joey Graff had let me know that his 4 legged nephew Ollie had bolted out an open fence in Marion Ohio yesterday… His older brother Ben was frantic and the search was on…
Everyone on Facebook was putting out pleas across Ohio for “Ollie” and about the time a person named “Mash” had sent me a message on my fanpage requesting a picture of Ollie,
I got that request to Joey,
and he sent out a message:
“OLLIE HAS BEEN FOUND”
Oh happy day as it was artic time in Ohio
and I’m sure Ben *Ollie’s human* was dancing in the streets* along with Joey in his home!
So it is great news
as today I’m sure the brothers are dancing and getting “slurps” and probably feeding
little OLLIE steak.
Welcome home Ollie you little rascal you,
keep your 4 legged butt inside unless you gotta go potty, you were giving all of us
heart palpatations across the lands!
It’s time to get your “shine on” friends and warm yourselves by doing your
start off this week finding something to feel
With that said,
Have a blessed week,
somebody loves ya babies.
