“Emotions of any kind can be evoked by melody and rhythm; therefore music has the power to form character.”
I love to sing. When I’m driving alone, in the car. It brings me back to the days when I was growing up and my sisters, brother and I WERE the Beatles. I think I was always Ringo, probably because I really can’t carry a tune, but they needed the drummer. We didn’t even have instruments. The couch was the stage and I remember sitting up on the back of it and pretending to play imaginary drums with sticks that were supposed to be drumsticks. Everyone else mastered the air guitars and of course our vocalists sang into mixer beaters as microphones. My poor parents! But we DID have imaginations. My Mom loved it. She was the fun one for sure! She got wind that the Beatles were in Pgh and drove my sister Janey around to get a glimpse. I think that’s how the story went and I think they did catch a glimpse.
(I was at a red light when I recorded this!)
What made me think of this? The other day when I was on my way to have my PRP, I turned off the news and turned on “70’s on 7”. I’m making an effort to step away from the disaster and limit my exposure to the mess. I’m so glad I did because it’s an hours drive there and the music was awesome! They just kept coming too!
“Off the Wall” by Michael Jackson
Linda Ronstadt. “It’s so easy to fall in love”
Hall and Oats (I forget which song, but a few good ones!)
“Workin’ my way back to you girl” by the Spinners
All of these weddings and the fun dancing and my knee feeling better have me bopping around more. Not to mention having my two favorite musicians back in town.
What does this have to do with socks? I spent all day yesterday sorting through these socks, counting, recounting, washing, labeling, you get it. I had to think so I couldn’t just turn on the tunes snd go on auto. I had to do math and after doing the math every which way to make sure that my prices were in line, finally cane up with a final. I already had the price per pair from the knitters, but the spinner pricing was trickier because each style of the socks uses a different amount of yarn. That required figuring the cost per ounce and how much each used. I think I needed my math friend, Carol for this!
Now to take photos, list them and get things moving. Christmas gift buying has already started I’m afraid. I have 2 more batches coming from 2 different sources. I’m pretty sure that my prices will be in line.
So, as soon as I get them up properly, you’ll get the link. If you live local, you can email me without going through the site. That saves us each the fee.
I hope the rain stops soon. I want to get my herd check done early and get dry.

In the meantime, do something you’ve never done before. Find your passion and explore it. Every single day is a gift. I’m off to tend my passion.
Have a blessed day!
