Lacking that Tune in the Proverbial Bucket

Lovely2 has one of the most beautiful singing voices I've ever heard. When she auditioned for high school chorus I was standing outside the door. I hear the most gorgeous voice and wondered who was singing. It was Deanie. She still sounds like an angel when she sings.

Now, for the rest of the Lovelies and myself? We can barely carry a tune in a bucket. Well, Lovely1 and Lovely3 can, sort of, but Lovely4 and me? Nope. Guess who loves to sing more than anyone else in the family? That's right. DoodleBug and I.

We try not to expose others to our singing if we can help it but we have been known to let loose when in the car together or separately. The most fun is when we're together though. We might not be able to carry a tune in that bucket, but in our hearts, we've got music. We've got soul. We've got what it takes to sing in our loudest voices. And it's not like we sound like the rocking chair on cat's tail--though we sort of get close.

When we accidentally hit a note right on key we get so excited we sing even louder. But hey, most of the time we do get the lyrics right.

No matter, DoodleBug and I LOVE to sing. We LOVE music. We love to sing together. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

I'm a day late. Again. Goodness. This post is linked to Five Minute Friday.  The prompt this week is: Sing.

  4. Ok - this is my 3rd attempt at trying to leave a comment. Not sure why my wordpress address did not work.
    Thank you for sharing this post which I enjoyed reading and made me smile. I love your joy and inhibition and you sound like a fun person to be around.
    Your post made me think of the psalmist's words: "...make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
    Bless you and have a great week!

    1. That's the verse I always think of, too. I have trouble with my wordpress log-in when I try to comment on wordpress blogs. It tells me that isn't my password but it is. I went ahead and changed it and it still tells me that isn't my password so I gave up and use Twitter to comment. LOL I'm so glad you enjoyed the post! Thank you!

  5. Thank you for attending the #WednesdayAIMLinkParty. I shared your post on Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, and Twitter.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
