When I saw this song,
I just couldn't resist putting it on.

Thought to myself "What Fun".

Yvonne's the one who love blogging,
Her followers are rare beyond compare.
Where can one find so many friends.
Who for her is "Always There?".

Yvonne's the one who likes
To comment.
On her follower's post.
Whether it be "Alex" or Arlee Bird"
Who of course was the original host.

Yvonne's the one who enjoys
Reading what others have wrote.
And without furher ado I take my leave,
On this wonderful note.

THE A TO Z CHALLENGGE 2017: X IS FOR...........

 THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2017:
MY THEME IS YEAR IS RHYTHM AND RHYME:
Which consists of a song and a poem:
Hope you enjoy:
is for XANADU
by
OLIVIA NEWTON JOHN:
As I browsed through You Tube,
Looking for a song beginning with "X".
I was amazed I couldn't find any.
I was flabbergasted I confess.

Here in the UK, there was one
Named "Legend of Xanadu"
But that began with letter "L".
And of course that wouldn't do.

I hope I will be luckier with letter "Y".
Surely there must be quite a few.
That I can entertain and amuse the Challenge,
And of course Blogging Buddies......You.

THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2017: W IS FOR.............

 MY THEME IS YEAR IS RYHTHM AND RHYME:
Which consists of a song and a poem:
Hope you enjoy:
is for WHEN 
by
THE KALIN TWINS:

With my "Q" letter post
Meant the title was "When".
I had to do some quick thinking
There and then.

You see I had already chosen "W"
From the Challenge's onset.
Should I change or not to change,
Would I indeed regret?

Well I finally decided to go ahead.
And my original "W" I've kept.
It takes me back many years.
Years of when hope in my heart have crept.

I was still at school
When this record went on sale.
They don't make them like this anymore.
Believe me this one couldn't and didn't fail.

by
ELVIS PRESLEY:

I''ve been fortunate to visit Vegas,
Twice within the past eight years.
The first time was with a tour to se Danny Boy,
Which certainly brought some cheer.

We stopped at the Mone Carlo Hotel,
Very grand I may say.
What happened at the concert ,
Certainly made my day.

Daniel mentioned our group to the audience,
Asked us to stand to be seen.
He pointed at me and said "There's Yvonne Lewis",
On my face was an enormous beam.

The second time I visited there,
We stopped at the Hotel Flamingo.
It was the same hotel in the film
Of the above song if you'll forgive the lingo.


 Me in the grounds of The Flamingo
 The hotel complete with Flamingo's
Ceaser's Palace:
I certainly enjoyed both times in Vegas.
With wonderful memories to recall.
I'd love to return there again some day.
Yes! I certainly had a ball.

As we are nearing the end of the challenge,
Relaxation is the order of the day for me.
That's why I've chosen Richard playing
Unchained Melody.

I appreciate many singers have sung this,
And very well I may say.
But thought I would change the format.
To help me relax today.

I do hope you enjoy this version,
As it's a lovely tune.
I'm off now to relax now for a while,
Be back with you again soon.

HOPE YOU ENJOY:
is for TRY A LITTLE KINDNESS
by
GLEN CAMPBELL:
I recently been reading a book
Entitled "I Can Make You Happy"
It's by the self help writer Paul McKenna,
I picked it up at the bookshop quite snappy.

It's a wonderful book
I have you know.
He has written a quote,
To you I'll show.

"If you want to be happy for a hour......take a nap.
If you want to be happy for a week.....take a vacation.
If you want to be happy for a year........win the lottery.
If you want to be happy for life.......Be KIND TO SOMEONE.
END OF QUOTE

The song says it all,
It's one I've always loved.
As sure as there are stars
In the Heavens above.

I was saddened to learn
Of Glen Campbell being so unwell.
He, through his music,
Have touched the hearts of millions.
THAT i CAN TELL.

THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2017: S IS FOR.........

 My Theme this year is RYHTHM AND RHYME:
Which consists of a song and a poem:
Hope you enjoy:
is for STREETS OF LONDON
by
RALPH MCTELL:
Whenever I hear this song
I get an "Attitude of Gratitude".
For I have a roof over my head,
Also in the cupboard plenty of food.

I also have at night,
A most comfortable bed.
So when I feel the need.
I can lay my weary head.

I appreciate the lyrics,
Could pertain to the Universe.
There are so many homeles, lonely people,
As I write this "Challenge Verse".

I am so very grateful
For the life I live.
I may have a "Lonely" existance,
But I have so much love to give.
