Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Just finished up my famous mashed potatoes smothered in butter while rocking out to Scorpion's Lovedrive on the amazing free Spotify.  See, the kids are at Grandma's so mama can listen to her adult music.  And one of my favorite rock songs in the world has to be Holiday (it really starts rocking out around 3:00).  I heard it the first time on my Sony Walkman tape player back in the 80's.  I met this sweet boy from the Netherlands on our family trip to Sanibel Island, FL and he passed me this mixed tape to listen to on the beach.  Funny how certain songs bring back such strong memories.  Ahhhh, mixed tapes...

I had never heard the Scorpions and I was blown away.   Those were such simple times.   BTW, that boy (now a man in his 40's) is back in Europe with a great job, married to a beautiful wife, has an adorable little boy and plays in a rock band part-time.  Thank you Facebook.  ;-)

I  love all types of music and we listen to classic and jazz usually during the day, but when I am alone at home or in my car I love me some 70's and 80's blues and rock.  Scorpions, Rush, Stevie Ray, Queen, Pink Floyd, Hendrix, Metallica, Van Halen, Boston, Led Zeppelin, Doors, and even some of those hair bands.  And did I mention my husband can play a mean electric guitar?

Now my free adult music time draws to a near and I have to finish getting the house ready for company tomorrow.   I think Mom might notice if I don't pick up the kids...

I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
