What I Think About Sandra…

The lovely C. at Cyranny had an idea that all of us who love Sandra from What Sandra Thinks could show our support for her as she’s been having a rough time of things lately.  I adore her blog and was happy to comply!
How did you discover Sandra’s blog?
 I believe I stumbled across her blog while visiting The Lonely Author blog few years ago.  Sandra’s interactions with Drew on his poetry and stories were so funny and sexy and snarky that I just had to look up her blog.  And the rest is history!
How long have you been following her?
I’d say almost as long as I’ve been at WordPress, so about two years now…
What do you enjoy the most about “What Sandra Thinks”?
You never know what you’ll find.  New and different music, cute items for sale at her RedBubble page, romantic fiction and some of the funniest rants.  I adore one she has about the way people drive.  I actually read it out loud to hubby one morning over coffee because it was just too funny to keep to myself!
What do you like the most about Sandra herself?
Her dark and sarcastic sense of humor.  I’m much more like her in real life, although I’m like Little Mary Sunshine on here.  She sometimes says exactly what I’d like to say if I had the nerve… (and my family wasn’t reading my blog!)
What would be one of your favorite posts from Sandra?
Well, I really should read ahead on these questions, shouldn’t I?  The one about the way people drive is probably my fave.
What would you tell Sandra, if you two were talking over a cup of coffee?
You are such a lovely woman, talented, way too hard on yourself, especially about the kind of mom you are and your skills.  Let’s walk together, let’s get coffee at least once a week…
What do you wish for Sandra, in the future?
Less back pain, more calm, maybe a little less caffeine, more self-confidence, a freaking fabulous job and a house in Hawaii on the beach where she can write in peace…
Sandra, I love you, honey!

Throwback Thursday with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees Rufus and Chaka Khan…

I know I’ve told you about my very cool, talented, older (sorry, Al) cousin Al Ciner, who was a member of a musical group called The American Breed.  He also played guitar for other bands back in the day, including Rufus, where Chaka Khan was the featured singer.  I know it’s not a great picture, but he’s the hunky, funky guy fourth from the left.  And this year Rufus is nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  I would love it if you’d help by checking out the website and voting early and often, as we say in Chicago!  You can vote once a day through December 5 here:  https://www.rockhall.com/fan-vote/2018-fan-vote

If you’re (gasp!) too young to remember Rufus and Chaka Khan, have a listen to Tell Me Something Good.  Rufus won a Grammy in 1975 for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo, Group or Chorus for this song!

Yay, Yay, it’s Saturday…

Tee hee…  But, yes *sigh*

Summer Cold, Again*…

Summer vacation, it was a blast
Summer cold, it happened so fast
Lack of sleep, not my own bed
Stuffiness, all through my head,

Summer days, sneezing away
But, oh, those drugged Nyquil nights!

Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Do you cough all the time?
Tell me more, tell me more
Is your nose filled with slime?

Tried to rest, but that didn’t work
Phone calls from telemarketer jerks
My poor throat is feeling so sore
Need more meds from the grocery store

Summer germs, now something’s inflamed
But, oh, those sleepy Nyquil nights!

Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Do you still feel like crap?
Tell me more, tell me more
Do you still need a nap?

A couple more days and I’ll be all right
I might wash my hair, not look such a fright
Think I might actually be on the mend
And this stupid cold will finally come to an end

Summer days, sneezing away
But, oh, those blissful Nyquil nights!!

*To the tune of Summer Nights from Grease.  I probably would have done an audio recording for you, you know, if it weren’t for my cold…

Yay, Yay, it’s Saturday…

A little musical thought…
