Thanks Linda for hosting & thanks Carol Anne for supplying the word GRATITUDE.  Visit Carol Anne’s blog to read her post and say hello.  HERE are the rules & ping back, join us if you can.

Gratitude is one of the best words. I just realized gratitude isn’t a noun, it’s verb. Well okay, it is a noun according to Merriam Webster but I’m going to call gratitude a verb from here on out. Gratitude is to show appreciation & return kindness. Sounds like action to me.

As always, more to come.

Thanks for hosting Jim. Today’s theme is metal. HERE are the rules and ping back. My choice is The Ripper by Judas Priest. Songwriter Glenn Tipton. We saw them live on the Vengeance tour in 1982 so ya, had to pick them. Rob’s classically trained voice still gives me chills. He’s got quite a range.

You’re in for surprise
You’re in for a shock (ah)
In London town streets
When there’s darkness and fog (fog, fog, fog)
When you least expect me
And you turn your back
I’ll attack (attack, attack, attack)

I smile when I’m sneaking
Through shadows by the wall
I laugh when I’m creeping
But you won’t hear me at all

All hear my warning
Never turn your back
On the ripper

You’ll soon shake with fear
Never knowing if I’m near
I’m sly and I’m shameless
Nocturnal and nameless
Except for “The Ripper”
Or if you like, “Jack The Knife”

Any back alley street
Is where we’ll probably meet
Underneath a gas lamp
Where the air’s cold and damp
I’m a nasty surprise
I’m a devil in disguise
I’m a footstep at night
I’m a scream of the fright

All hear my warning
Never turn your back
On the ripper
The ripper
The ripper

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 1/15/23

Quick Roll Call without reflection. First time for everything. Oh wait! The kidlet is finally testing negative & has been symptom free for over a week. Hopefully we will ALL be spared from the Kraken, newest strain.


The Usual Fodder

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.
