Where's the song ~~ "Don't let your daughters grow up to marry a Cowboy" ?

​​​​​​​Life is tough! Requires hard physical work, long, long days of pain, dirt, and broken fingernails.​
​Days of frigid cold & scorching heat; through the dust & mud; daybreak into the darkness of nite~~​
​the heart & body becomes toughened & weathered replicating leather!​
​A forever constant factor for a real Cowboy's Wife is tons of sweat, oceans of tears and a constant 'drought' in the wallet!​
​​​​​​​​​IF​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ she wants to spend anytime at all with her Cowboy, she must do as he does, you become partners!​
​​​​​​Kick off your boots, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and envision yourself in my life!​
​... It really isn't that bad! There are many rewards to be had to make it a great lifestyle! ...​ ​​​​​​​

I Began to Shake...

...Rattle and Roll!

Singing~ Oh, Shake shake shake, shake shake shake,

Shake your booty! Shake your booty!

Oh, shake shake shake, shake shake shake,

Shake your booty!

Shake your booty. WoWohoo,Yeah!

There I was~ .."just a-walkin' down the street,
singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
Snappin' her fingers and shufflin' her feet, singin'
"Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
Then~ I. Felt. the. Earth. Move..

Under. my. Feet...

Shake your booty.WoWohoo,Yeah!











William Wordsworth(1804)

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but gay,
In such a jocund company!
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

You creative chicky!
I love the 2nd & 3rd songs! (See me grooving in my chair?)

That WW poem is the first poem (not counting nursery rhymes) that I was required to memorize in school. To this day, I still love it and ...well, the rest is too long to post.

Robynn's Ravings said...

Can't WAIT for the daffodils here. Trader Joe's get them and sells bunches for next to nothing. They're coming!

The Wife said...

Shake that booty! Things are green around here. Can't wait for Spring temps to stay. It's been a rollercoaster. Glad you have some signs pokin' thru!

Rue said...

Good morning Mama Barb :)

It looks like you're finally getting your first signs of Spring! Yay!!

On a more somber note.... I'm deeply sorry for your loss and my heart goes out to you and Misty's family.


Mrs Mom said...

Now see? I'm not the only one getting ready for Spring to really hit!! ;) But you are still welcome to visit anytime WoW!

Cactus Jack Splash said...

Thanks for posting that sign of spring!
A much needed lift.

Fantastyk Voyager said...

very cool!
I noticed some little tiny sprouts just the other day too. Which reminds me- I have to go WATER them. :)

Maria said...

woohoo, this brightened my morning, I have a smile now with those songs ringing in my mind & visions of meadows filled with spring flowers, I want to go dance with the daffodils

DesertHen said...

Lucky, lucky, lucky you!! Nothing is peeping through the ground here and I mean nothing! I would be happy to see a weed at this point.

The cows and heifers that we are housing for a neighboring rancher are starting to calve...so surely that is a sign of spring!!

It can't get here soon enough for me....but we really, really, really need more rain in our area. No snow..more rain please.

Take care my friend and give us updates on those lovely daffodils....=) I love the poem as well....William Wordsworth can make the simpliest things come alive in the minds eye.

Janice Thomson said...

I love it! How neat is that seeing daffodils! Good poem choice - I've always liked that one too.
Isn't spring wonderful?!

Shirley said...

Ahhh, daffodils! Please give us a photo when they bloom! Love that Wordsworth poem; I too had to memorize it in schoool.

Angelena said...

Ohhh what a BEAUTIFUL sight!!! I can't wait for spring! Thanks for sharing- it gives me hope on this cold snowy night here in the mountains.lol

terri said...

It's TRUE! Of course, spring is finding its way to your world a little sooner than it will to mine, but this gives me hope.

Red said...

Good morning and good 'almost spring'!!! Kim

S.W said...

Hello, it seems that spring has come at last. In my country spring has not come so far that the atmosphere with a moderate, but did not show manifestations of the spring so far, I can feel it close :) .
you are in a good mood makes you feel like singing and dancing, I can not do all that, everyone stares at me (because I am in the living room) :D , enjoy your time with family

Freak Magnet said...

I just found the same sight in my yard! What a beautiful sight!!!!! Spring is just around the corner!

connie said...

You're a scream Barb! One day I hope to meet you. Love Connie

Glenda, saved by grace said...

what a grand entrance for spring...for those of you who have been snowed in, its much deserved!
the only thing I don't like about spring is ...cleaning.......

GutsyWriter said...

I felt your excitement at the new life exploding from a long dormant soil.
May love and beauty fill your life through these daffodils.

Renie Burghardt said...

My favorite Wordsworth poem! Know it by heart. Spring is showing signs around here as well. My daff's are about to bloom, and the spring peepers are singing. Well, were singing, then it got chilly again. But they'll be back soon. Next week promises to be warmer again.

Enjoyed the post, Barb. Happy weekend!



Egghead said...

I am loving that the daffodils are pushing up through the soil. I watch mine daily....oh and the tulips.

Heidi said...

*banging head against desk* PLEASE dont do this to me.... I have cabin fever so bad that my nails are now bloody stumps. I have chewed my leg off at the knee because I was imagining a chain around my leg keeping me in this blessed house for another month,.... We got 6 inches of snow the day before yesterday and 2 more last night.....
*blank stare left eye twiching***

gtyyup said...

And just today I got my firt peak at my iris coming up...don't have any daffodils. Great, uplifting post for us winter weary folks :)

The Blonde Duck said...

Sounds like you're excited!

Beverlydru said...

I came over here from Gutsy Writer's blog. My blog is titled "Dancing with the Daffodils". My 102 year old grandmother planted a love of poetry in me. That's one of our favorites.

Tessa said...

Boogy the spring RIGHT ON IN! You go, Barb, just keep on rockin'!

What a refreshing breath of spring YOU always are to every single one of us!
