Throw Back Thursday * Shelton…We're having a Party*

I’m the Country Star in my head tonight, not my usual choice of music yet some I can’t get enough of. It’s a triple shot of Blake Shelton. I picked fun, blow the roof off the house music this week. Blake is one of my favorite current day singers, oh I meant drinkers. His blue eyes and big smile shows me he loves  the job. He’s like 6’6…….oh back on track. I have surgery to implant the Port to start me IV Therapy on Tuesday. When I’m scared or nervous it’s usually chocolate, cookies, cookies. Instead of chocolate, I went for Blake, He always makes me feel good. He’s down home country boy, I picture him on a john boat fishing on his land. If you don’t like the words, no problem, no country for your taste, that’s ok. This weekend is have fun letting the bobby pins out. I’ll be thinking of you and what I’m missing out on. I’ll catch up when I get back.   XO M

Throw Back Thursday (Wednesday) *Let's Get Rocked*

I hit pay dirt this week. The first two are in pre-release, I think both drop later this month.  David Gilmore doesn’t have a video. None of the bands are new, you’ve heard many of their tunes here. The last video is my Guitar Hero, Eric Clapton. He sounded great even thru one ear. I not happy with Bose right now. If the music captures you, download and get your rock on anytime. Eric caresses the strings perfectly, I lose myself  every time. Grab your beverage along with a nice assortment of cheese, bread and toppings.  I wasn’t drinking any beverages posting today, just forgot what day it was. Music is the good for you fruit. Eric Clapton doesn’t sound as perfect as liked, I could not pass up the best solo I’ve hear.    A shout out to a Dragon friend of mine.   XO Melinda

Throw Back Thursday *Giving you crazy from my heart*

This week the songs are completely different, not even throw backs. I leave Sunday for appointment in DC with new Lyme Doctor on Tuesday morning. Being without a doctor for months now was brining me down. Meeting one of the top Lyme experts, makes me happy. The second song may surprise you, it did me.Kid Rock has a crazy persona/life yet I believe he is a good man. I respect any entertainer who goes to show our soldiers some fun and love from home. Seeing soldiers huge smiles, taking their mind off reality for a short time makes me warm inside. I had not heard this amazing song before. This post is to say thank you and hugs to so many who’ve touched my life. I could not begin to tell you how your support has filled the hole in my heart.   XO Warrior

Throw Back Thursday *Musical Poet Jackson Browne*

The first time I heard Jackson Browne sing, he was speaking to my heart. He’s words like poetry of situations in life I understood. In each song a line or two I couldn’t get out of head. I hope you enjoy this week’s picks. For me Jackson Browne is best enjoyed with lights out, candles lit around the room, a good Merlot to enjoy or share and a slightly introspective mood.   XO  Warrior

I hope you enjoy the tunes this week, both are favorites of mine. Kick back in comfy chair, something smooth to drink and enjoy the memories. Queen was a favorite of mine, Freddie with his theatrics. Bad Company still in top 5 all time bands, Paul Rogers voice fits perfectly with the band. I respect him for having the courage to follow Freddie. There is only one Freddie Mercury and only one Paul Rogers. I am thankful to hear and watch both.    XO  Warrior

Throw Back Thursday *Dedicated to my Twin P*

Dearest Twin P You are the best twin sister I’ve never met. We have lots of good times in our future knocking out our Bucket List.   I’m so happy you’ve met a man who knows how to treat a women. Take your time, fall in like first. if you see a future and have done all the homework possible, allow yourself to see where it goes.You deserve a man to hold you at end of day. When you find the right man, the kids will let you know. You need a strong man who can love your children as his. A gentleman to teach the boys how to act towards their mother and all women. Most importantly show them love by doing things together, boys seem to learn better when they don’t know their learning.  I thought the first video was hilarious. The Bryan Adams song is an old favorite of mine. I hear the words of deep love, forever love. I hear them whispered in my ear. Just a loving word of advice in your new relationship. You are not in charge of everything, don’t make all decisions and remember staying up late to surf is not worth missing snuggle time..   XO Warrior

Throw Back Thursday *Clapton Cocaine, Zeppelin Rock & Roll*

A couple music favorites from my wild child days. By 12 years old I already lived a lifetime, the drugs probably kept me alive. Read my About Me page and you may agree. I would break a kilo of marijuana down to four finger bags in a couple of hours. Using old fashion sandwich bags, just roll and lick to seal.  My 21-year-old boyfriend was a dealer and we would sell kilo in two nights. This became our Friday ritual every two weeks. There is a long story behind how a drug addicted 12-year-old missed out playing with Barbie’s. I had Angels guiding my path.   XO Warrior

Throw Back Thursday * Santana Bending Strings…Live From Germany *

The idea for this weeks Throw Back Thursday came to me several weeks ago, I didn’t even think twice. My life overflows with sunshine everyday because of you. Every like, comment, follow, friendship, laugh, words of encouragement, allowing me into your life and above all your prayers. You have touched me deeply by allowing me to comment, knock on your door and allowing me into your life. There is not a day go by without thoughts and prayers for my WP family. My husband understands how important blogging is for me, what is hard for him is how people can touch my life without meeting. I started blogging to share my experiences with others. I didn’t have a clue where the first steps would take me. The thought of my heart expanding with joy never crossed my mind. I am thankful for so much and hope to see you often in 2015.   XO Melinda

Throwback Thursday * Reflection….What if today was your last day? *

There are three tick born illnesses making a home in my body. I’ve been kicked in the gut, stomped to the ground and rolled over by a truck the past few weeks. The monsters inside have met their match. I ain’t going down that easy. I’ve been to sick to update my Lyme Journal, many days I feel like death. On better days I feel like an ice pick is stabbing my forehead. My body rejects me, today falling when only three feet from the ground. The doctor said I could die at my last appointment. I do not visualized myself not getting up and won’t. I want to live each minute, feel it, make plans, add to my bucket list (Tango Lessons), keep learning and looking forward. Both songs are strong inspirations to me, enjoy today, the people I love and keep an open heart. Many have sent me words of encouragement, love, well wishes and lots of laughs. Thank you from the bottom of my big Texas heart. I appreciate everyone who prays for me and takes the time to write. My heart overflows with sunshine. Life is short, if we could live each day like it was our last, what a wonderful world it would be.   XO Warrior
