This song is by Duffy and it is called Mercy..Besides her being unbelievably beautiful her voice is amazing.

When I was a kid music and dancing was everything. It is all we thought about. My little sister and I made up dances that we and our friends would do. We danced while we cleaned the house, we danced doing dishes. We threw each other around the room until we were dizzy. I miss that..

One time we went out in the country for a drive with one of our friends from school. He had this old red Cadillac and we all thought it was the bomb..

And he had this rocking stereo. Well he decides to pull over on the side of the road, and we all got out of the car and started dancing. I remember a farmer out in the field looking at us like we were crazy. We just laughed. Youth..

But this song reminds me of that day..

I hope you have to time to listen to it.

sad for me I don't have volume on my computer any more.... I can remember listening to "American Bandstand" on Saturday morning's and flipping around the house while I cleaned...Mom worked some Saturday's and I had strict orders to stay in and dust & vacuum. Thank you for the memories, and going back and remembering is good for the soul, I bet you smiled when you went back in time uh? I did just writing a comment, and Thank you for allowing me to smile and remember when with you, I haven't had a true smile all week end, until tonight! YOU made me smile AGAIN!!!
Love ya

Good SOng Nita
You are so funny. I can just see you dancing in the road!

I love to dance and I dance around the house many times one of my dogs loves to jump and dance with me. I guess it's the disco in me right?

Growing up on the the east coast was all about dancing. All we thought about was dancing. We'd dream of going on Soul Train and practice in our living room and on the street corners. I can relate to your wonderful fond memory.

Never stop dancing!

This morning I was going through my list of favorite blogs that I have saved and I came across yours. I haven't read it in a while but something told me to look at it this morning. I plan on reading it daily now because it makes me stop and think about things that really matter in my life. I feel like you and I have a lot in common and we think alike. I will admit that I haven't stopped and really 'breathed the air' in a long time. I know that you know what I mean. I plan on doing that more often now. Thank
you for helping me to realize that this is what I need to do. You are an inspiration to me. I feel sad for you and your loss of your husband. He seemed like such a loving and thoughtful man. You are a strong lady and I can tell that you treasure your memories of you and him together. God Bless You.

Oh,and I use to dance around the house when I was cleaning too. I haven't done that in years. I guess I might try it out again.LOL

You know, while I was growing up, music and dancing were my favorite things too. Listening to 45 records in my room and dancing. Skipping and dancing through the house. . . Thanks for reminding me of those fun memories.

I wish you a blessed and wonderful new year.

I am Lee Laurie's friend. When I got home last night she told me about your blog and showed it to me. I believe that if we take care of the little things, the big things will fall into place. I love to dance and sing(I am not good at either one). It made me think that she and I haven't danced in awhile....we use to all the time. This is something we will have to start back doing. I follow a couple of the blogs she keeps up us something to talk about. The other night I stood outside for a long time and enjoyed the peacefulness, the cool breeze, she came out with hot was very relaxing. I would be lost without her. A good friends dad passed away a few years ago and at the cementary wind chimes were hung through out it. I never hear one now that I do not think about her father and the fun times we shared, how much of a family man he was...etc.
