JOHN SAYS MY POSTS ARE FILLED WITH A LOT OF NONSENSE - WARNING -
THIS ONE IS IN PARTICULAR - SO YOU CAN SKIP DOWN TO THE LAST 2 PHOTOS IF
YOU JUST WANT A MAKEOVER
Music inspires me - ALL music - Jazz - Rock 'n Roll - Rock - Folk - Gospel - Reggae and Country - I love it all - which is why I try desperately to infuse you with lyrics that get stuck in your head all day.
( you're welcome )
I woke up yesterday morning - and belted out Good Mornin' Captain !!!
John says - WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU SCREECHING FOR? as he buries his head under the blankets
Suzan says - I'm yodelling
John says - That's NOT yodeling - who do you think you are Julie Andrews?
Suzan says - Julie Andrews yodelled?
John says - Yeah - when she was escaping the mountains with all those kids
Suzan says - Oh - that's not the type of yodelling I'm doing..................
John says - Well it's horrid - can you stop please? Because you're NO Julie Andrews!
Suzan says - Well you're no MERLE HAGGARD - as I scream out Hee Hee Ha Ha Hey Hey .....
Suzan says - I feel like an old Mule Skinner - so no I don't think I will stop
John says - What in God's name is a Mule Skinner?
Suzan says - Someone who keeps Mules in line - so it's very appropriate
John grew up on classical hymns - I grew up with Mule Skinner Blues -
And if I can appreciate and love " Were you there when they crucified my Lord "
Well .....................then he should learn to appreciate a little Hee Hee Hee ha ha HEY HEY -
don't you think?
You should see how quickly I can paint a piece of furniture listening to this kind of music blasting.
John says - When you're finished - could you make me a tea please...............
Suzan says - dancing out of the room - Sure - I'll bring the buck buck bucket down - whah whah whah
John says - NOW YOU SOUND LIKE A DUCK
John says - Just one morning - I'd give anything for just ONE NORMAL MORNING...................
John yells - You ARE NOT playing that music outside in the summer !!!!!!!
( I had an Uncle that sang this to absolute perfection -
Bonus points if any of you knew which song I was talking about
And this is what I painted ( mostly to this type of music ) You can hate it but you can't deny it's energy
Man can this song get me going - seriously ! If you're at work DON'T blast this - if you're at home, go for it - this songs needs to be LOUD
Another treasure found on CL -
Boring ? Yes
I decided this needed to be lightened up - too dark and foreboding - it came from a Church and it looks like it's about to give a sermon on Fire and Brimstone - and it smells of incense like you wouldn't believe...............A good dose of shallac can take care of the odor ( or 2 ) and a good painting can take care of the rest :)
I painted it with Annie Sloan's Old White - and added a little detail to the doors -
Then I distressed - using a sander and by hand until it was just the way I wanted it
I painted the handles in place ( pulling an Annie Sloan here )
Then I decided to add a little to the inside!
I did the stripes in different directions for even more of a little surprise
I like the little bit of wood showing in them - because that's the only place any wood is left on her!
Here's one I did a couple of years ago - aren't they fun?
ok - back to the buffet
I painted the interior cupboards with a pale yellow I had on hand ( just latex paint, shhhh, so I'll have to seal it with some polyurethane )
and while that was drying - I attacked the doors
She wants to show you her backside ( something she could NEVER do in Church )
( that's why the lady is a tramp ♪♫♪♪ )
how many songs can I fit into one post? ohhh probably just about as much as the nonsense I can fill it with.
Well...................♪ she never picked cotton like her Mama did - and her Brother did and her Sister did and her Daddy died young ( working in the coal mine ) ♪
OK - FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO SKIPPED THE NONSENSE - HERE'S THE MAKEOVER -
John says - Oh look, there's a line outside
Suzan says - Huh?
Suzan says - Don't tell me - An electric wire's down?
John says - No - A LINE - For your performance
LMHO - really - he keeps me in stitches!
I just put it on full blast as I'm getting ready to sign off - John immediately got up from his desk and left the office - mumbling something about living in a madhouse.............
Soda promptly followed him.
The two of them need to lighten up.
Cha cha cha !
P.S. - I'm giggling here by myself picturing some of your horrified reactions to Mule Skinner Blues -
really - LMHO -
This is the type of thing that keeps me blogging LOL
Have a great day :)
