During the Christmas season, I’m constantly humming Christmas songs. The song that I’ve hummed the most this year has been “The Christmas Song” by Mel Tormé and Bob Wells. This is a really nice link to a great heart warming story involving this great song.

Paulywood’s 45 #24: Baby It’s All Up To You

Now that summer and labour day are over, pack your bags and be on our way, ’cause my vacation starts today.

This is a picture of one of our cats on the patio during an August heat wave. First I thought of using an old vacation picture from Mexico but when I saw this one, it was perfect.  Her name is Baby. 🙂

Paulywood’s 45 #23: This Baby Thing

If I said that I wrote this song 18 years ago for our first son Jesse, I’ld be a liar.

If I said that I wrote it for our second son Brandon, I’ld be even a bigger liar.

It took me 16 years to write this song! Why? They say “experience is the best teacher of life”. This song has taught me a lot. Take all the years you’ve had with any of your children, and hug them tight.

Happy Father’s Day.

Paulywood’s 45 #22: Monday

This is one of those songs I wrote many years ago. I think it was like ’81 or ’82. So almost 30 years ago. I took most of the lyrics, added a chorus, and totally re-wrote the music. It was now a brand new song but with old lyrics reborn.

Spring is well into swing, and we have lots of flowers on the patio again this year. A small but proud vegetable garden is hopefully going to produce tomatoes, corn, peppers, onions and lettuce. I like to sit outside and just look at the flowers and garden. It’s so peaceful and soothing. If you have a hard time with Mondays or the first day of your work week, try finding a small garden, breath and everything will be fine.
