Share Your World, 2015 – Week 21

Cee’s instructions this week are to choose four subjects from a list she has posted. Under each of those subjects, list four things. So here goes.

FAVORITE SONGS:
(This is a particularly difficult category because as a musician, I have some songs that are my favorites to play, but then as a listener, there are some other songs that are my favorites to listen to. And then, of course, there’s my love for Christmas, which automatically puts some of those songs at the top of the list — and my love for Jesus, which throws in a couple dozen hymns and worship songs. So limiting myself to 4 songs is going be hard, but I’ll give it my best shot.)

1. “I’ll Be Seeing You” (This song is my ALL-TIME favorite from all categories)

2. “God Rest You Merry Genglemen” (My favorite Christmas song).

3. “White Christmas” (My second favorite Christmas song and one of my favorites from any category)

4. “Great is Thy Faithfulness” (Classic Hymn)

FAVORITE FLOWERS OR PLANTS:

1. Daisies

2. Sunflowers

3. Peonies

4. Honeysuckle

FAVORITE ANIMALS:

1. Dogs

2. Cows (I think cows are possibly the most valuable animal God ever made. They are beautiful, they are serene and peace inducing, and they give nourishment. How much more can you ask from any animal?).

3. Birds (Especially Cardinals, Mockingbirds, and Bluebirds)

4. Horses (I haven’t ridden since I was a child, but a beautiful, healthy horse is such a beautiful thing to watch running through the field and enjoying life.)

FAVORITE STUFF THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH:

1. The character of Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show.  (Played by one of America’s most talented comedians of all time: Don Knotts. Almost anything he does is truly funny, and some of his scenes are so hilarious that I laugh loud and long even when I’ve seen them zillions of times before.)

2. The scene from the original 1940’s version of Miracle on 34th Street where the toy department manager’s wife is soaked with martinis and is trying to talk on the phone to invite Santa Clause to come and stay at their home. (It’s hilarious, and I love acting out the scene for people who have never seen it. It truly a masterpiece scene from the classic movies library.)

3. Watching puppies play. (Just this week, I watched a video on Facebook that recorded a little dog getting ready to go to sleep in his carrier, but wanting a stuffed teddy bear in the carrier with him. The teddy bear was bigger than he was, but he worked really hard until he had it pulled inside with him. Unfortunately, I can’t get a copy of it to share.)

4. Laid-back, dry-wit humor — especially that from some of my writing friends.

Below is one of my favorite segments of Barney on the “Andy Griffith Show”:

 

Bonus Question: What are you thankful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week ahead?

I’m thankful that last week my digital books began selling on Amazon and that people are already ordering them. Next week I’m looking forward to getting geared up and prepared to teach the new Creative Writing Camp for Kids, which starts on June 8.

    1. You should definitely go onto YouTube and find some old “Andy Griffith Show” episodes. You would love them. It was one of the most popular and long-running series over here for years. It went off as a regular series somewhere around the 1970’s, but it’s never been off American TV. There are re-runs going on all the time still to this day.

    1. Yeah, I thought it sounded normal too. In fact, I thought it sounded so normal that it was boring, but I figured if I threw in a couple videos maybe nobody would notice.

  1. Yes, I knew I was giving a lot away when I dated the ‘Andy Griffith Show.’ In fact when Gerry said he didn’t know the shows, I don’t think it’s because he lives in England. I think it’s because it had stopped running in prime time before he was born.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
