You Can Beat It with an Ugly Stik~~Monday Music Moves Me

Oh my goodness! It is another Monday Music Moves Me blog hop. I have been honored to have been chosen as the spotlight dancer. I want to start out by apologizing if I break any rules. It will be unintentional. I also must apologize for being late. Mondays is usually a good day for me to get to the computer and blog around but alittle ice in the county has thrown the kids on a two hour school delay. 

If the weather's even close to good I will promise you all, I will be absent from the bloggy world and the good Lord blessed me with a pretty great weekend. 

                 It is a freebie day so I guess we can go where ever we want to today. 
I so have some Spring fever. I had promises myself back in January I was going to buy fishing license this year and fish. I have really done any fishing since I was a kid ..but I like it and I know Jack loves it. The old man(husband) use to be on a fishing craze but work has been a little demanding so the Jack cannot suffer anymore. Spending time with my boy and out on a creek bank or lakeside is truly two of my favorite things to do. So I'm excited and ready to do the thang. 

I'm not the one to watch every fishing show but I believe I probably have watched them all and I will tell you I think some folks lose all the fun for making it so complicated. The only  fishing show I care to watch is Bill Dance and Carolina Outdoor Journal. I also had to pick up a pole. I probably could have just found me one in building but I wanted my own. The questions I had was," What kind of reel? ....What kind of rod?" I almost went with the classic Zebco 33" but I really wanted the Ugly Stik Spin Cast Combo. 


I'm excited! 
I'm ready!
What you are thinking...
Where's the dang music?
So let's start with my all time summers on the way make me feel good song....Fishing in the dark by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band



I'm country music lover but I really love Beach Music. If you didn't grow up in the Carolina's you might not understand the craze. Carolina beaches, shagging, and just plain relax, Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl" has always been a favorite. I always wanted to be brown eyed because of this song but I have been blessed with my own brown eyed girl. 



I'm one of those folks who pretends to shagg but check out the real deal.






Jack and I are suppose to start training today for the 5K event the elementary school is sponsoring. We were both quite pumped up about it but they have cancelled practice due to weather so here's Emmylou to get us in the running mood.



I'll end this ride with one more Emmylou song one for all those who grew up with red dirt between your toes. Thanks to all of you who stopped by. I wish you a most blessed day.

  10. I grew up in Florida so I completely understand the need for the beach and good beach music. Love Van Morrison and Brown-Eyed Girl!

    Sorry about your 5K. I hope a new day is scheduled for it. Emmylou Harris is a great tune to get you moving!

  11. Love that you included the real Brown-Eyed Girl! You have no idea what this song meant to me when I first heard it. I was feeling very ugly and very plain. To think that someone would make a song about a girl with brown eyes instead of blue knocked my socks off! So happy that it's going to be in my head today... blessings to you! jules from bles-id.blogspot

  12. This week, I'm doing a double dance with all of my 4M buds due to last week's siesta with DH. More about that in an upcoming post! :)

    Congrats on being in the spotlight last week! Brown Eyed Girl is such a classic and I always think of the movie "Sleeping with the Enemy" when I hear it. That couple can really shagg. I just loved watching their feet move - so cool! Honestly, I didn't know there was a dance style called the shagg until now. lol I know, where have I been, right? I think in a lonely, dark cave out of touch with the world is where I think I've been. So much to learn! I hope you get to go fishing soon. It's suppose to be spring, but it feels like winter still here in the Tennessee Valley. Next week's forecast looks more promising, though.

    It was great, great fun to dance with you and thanks for being such a loyal Monday's Music Moves Me party-goer!

    1. I really enjoy hearing all the different types of music and how people roll with the theme is fun too. I suppose alot of people have never heard of shag dancing it's an east coast kind of thing.
