Happy Birthday John

I want to acknowledge the birthday of our beloved John Lennon. It's so Hard to believe he has been gone for nearly 28 years and would have been 68 yrs.old today. I can never forget his special day, He was born the same day and year as a neighbor of mine who also holds a special place in my heart. I know John's message still lives on in so many of us. Hope you will listen to 'imagine' one of my absolute favorite songs, followed by beautiful boy.

Today I awoke with such an awful headache. I made the mistake of taking advil on an empty stomach, which added nausea to my head pain. I feel like I've wasted so much of my precious time off from work. I had wanted to accomplish many errands and more fall cleaning. Instead, I've spent some time sitting quietly with my eyes closed and now that my head is clearing... I was able to read a few blogs, where I found this little meme to share.

What would you like to be? Answer the following with a word or reason, and have fun.

1. Tree- today? A weeping willow. other times? A mighty Oak.

2. Animal- A monkey, always having fun!

3. Vehicle- a luxurious stretch limo, comfortable and desired on special occasions

4. Appliance- An oven, with a big turkey inside, ready to comfort a family.

5. Gemstone- Diamond. desirable, precious.

6. Flower- Sunflower, enjoying the sunshine with a happy face.

7. Instrument- A harp. complicated, Tall and lovely.

8. Fruit- An orange. bright, sweet, and worth the effort of peeling.

9. Bird- A parrot. gabbing away and loving people.

10. Crayon- Purple. regal, powerful, playful, intense.

Like Tammy who I've borrowed this from, I'm tagging anyone who wants to play along.

Hope you feel better soon!! You know
"Imagine" IS my all time favorite song in the universe. John Lennon my favorite artist too! Hard to believe he would be 68! If you haven't seen the documentary John Lennon VS the U.S. you should watch it....make sure to watch all the special features after the movie too! It's so interesting to see how stupid that era was! I was doing that meme on my own and picked weeping willow as well...because they are one of my favorite trees...I was surprised to see your answer! But really....I shouldn't be anymore! And for the really are a sunflower!

Thanks for the post Lucy, I didn't realise it was John Lennon's birthday today. Unfortunately he had died before I was even born, but I absolutely love the song Imagine too. I often play it on my piano, though I haven't played it for so long.. maybe I will today
