Goodbye Rhinestone Cowboy, RIP

Being Lydia!

I just saw the news the Glen Campbell has passed away at the age of 81.

When his first top ten single came out, “Witchita Lineman”, I was 9 years old. While many of my friends were into the Beatles, the Stones, and other rock music, I preferred to listen to the likes of Neil Diamond, the Beach Boys, and country artists like Glen Campbell. The latter was definitely influenced by my Dad.

I think part of the reason that Campbell’s music was so popular for so many was the fact that it really crossed all boundaries. He was a country storyteller with the up tempo of pop and driving guitar of rock.

I remember watching “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour” with my parents. Songs like “Rhinestone Cowboy”, “By The Time I Get To Phoenix”, and “Gentle On My Mind” were big favorites.

Glen was not just popular with the fans…

Mood Music Monday: Everything’s Gonna Be Alright

Every little thing…is gonna be alright!!

Kay Morris Writes

This week’s mood music is inspired by our daughter who starts college this week. On move-in day, we arrived on campus, unloaded her belongings, and helped her set-up her dorm room. After a shopping trip to pick up a few miscellaneous items and a quick lunch, it was time for her to join her fellow first-years and embark upon her collegiate career. As we watched her walk away, we exchanged glances, wordlessly expressing the same concerns:

  • Does she have everything she needs?
  • Did she leave anything at home?
  • Will she be safe?
  • Is she prepared?
  • Have we done enough?
  • Will she remember the lessons we taught?

Mood Music Monday: Walking on Sunshine

How can you not like Katrina and the Waves. Sing along…

Kay Morris Writes

For my inaugural Mood Music Monday, I selected Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves! This upbeat, high energy song has me bopping my head, snapping my fingers, swinging my hips, and singing along, feeling mighty fine. I can’t think of a better way to start the week, and bring a little sunshine to Monday.

I LOVE this song because its message is so simple: I know you love me. We all want to be loved, and knowing that you are is something to sing (and dance) about.


Feel the love!
