Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) This song celebrates serenity. Are you feeling peaceful this morning? YES! School is out for three days!
2) The lyrics include allusions to sun and clouds. How does the world look where you are? Is it sunny or cloudy? Sunny
3) This week's featured artist, BJ Thomas, is in the Grammy Hall of Fame for another hit record that uses weather as a metaphor, "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head." Make up a Hall of Fame that you believe you should be inducted into. (For example, Crazy Sam has inducted herself into The Meme Mistress Hall of Fame for her service to Saturday 9.) Love the Children Hall of Fame. I can't help myself. I work with 3-5 year olds and they are super precious! Their parents are so kind to share them with us for the short time we have them and we all love those kids so much.
4) When Crazy Sam hears this song, she always sings along ... loud. Is there a song you simply cannot resist singing along with? Lots of songs I sing along LOUD and dance! When I drive to school in the morning mostly. I always hope I am not being followed by a co-worker. I need tinted windows. Ha!
5) BJ Thomas has performed this song at The Grand Ole Opry. The Opry has been broadcast on the radio every week since 1925, nearly 95 years ago! Of course, back in the 1920s, radio was the only broadcast media. Today we have other choices. Is listening to the radio part of your daily routine? Oh Yes! I listen on my way to and from work and really anytime I am driving, but to and from work would be part of my daily routine.
6) Though their dress code is lenient, country music fans who attend the Opry for a live show are warned: "Just remember, there's one rule we take very seriously here at the Grand Ole Opry -- you must wear something." Easter Sunday is a day many of us dress up. What will you be wearing today? On Sunday or Saturday? Saturday I will be wearing my St. Louis Cardinals gear, we are going to a baseball game. Sunday, we will stream church online, so something comfortable.
7) Easter is recognized as the start of the spring season. What are you looking forward to this spring? I was really happy about the grass and trees turning green and the flowers blooming. I am looking forward to decorating my yard with flowers, but I do that in May because of freezing temps.
8) Lilies are popular at Easter. Do you have a favorite flower? I really love all flowers.
9) Which would rather find in your Easter basket: yellow marshmallow chicks (aka Peeps) or a plastic egg filled with pennies? I will take the pennies. Peeps are so gross to me...but I know better than to yuck someone's yum!
Happy Easter everyone!
