“Boys of Summer” series: swinging the bat

Image

Here is another photo taken

from other side of the fence

where parents, siblings

and grandparents 

“Root, root, root

for the home team. . .”

This is my grandie,

Micah, who has no fears

nor trepidations. He is my

“Little Shadow” and yet,

never hides in the shadows.

Thank goodness for confidence

and bravura, as well as daring,

but genuine caring, gamesmanship!

“Take Me Out to the Ball Game”

was a “Tin Pan Alley”  

~ 1908 ~

song first written by

Jack Norworth

and

Albert Von Tilzer.

You may find an actual 1908

recording of this now 

considered iconic,

Traditional baseball song,

online sung by

Edward Meeker.

“Boys of Summer” series: My grandson, slugger Micah

Looking through the green chain fence,

Trying to remember this “little boy,”

Where did the “baby” go?

“Snips and snails, and

Puppy dog tails.”

Wow! 

He’s at the beginning of the

Batting line up,

First year of baseball

Skipping t-ball and now part of

Coach’s pitch.

Sometimes it gets me extra

sentimental, 

“Oh, how my Dad would have

Loved these moments!”

X X X X X X X X X

Nine innings fly by,

Usually not such a quick 

Four, but they won

and game was over in the

“Blink of an eye!”

Shot through the heart. . .

Image

This right hand jet stream trailing

downwards, reminds me of a

“flaming arrow.”

 Feathery  feelings  float

and flutter on a whole 

different level.

This evokes thoughts 

of how different two 

people can be. 

One was raised

 be forthright and direct. 

Other protects his

heart while 

deflecting

arrows of

Pain.

The song with same title

as the post written today is,

“Shot through the Heart”

came out in 1984. 

The one I think of 

and know the lyrics is called,

“You Give Love a Bad Name.”

This was related in lyrics by

repeating within chorus the line,

‘shot through the heart,’ (1986).

Both are Bon Jovi songs. Band

member, Richie Samboro 

and Desmond Child

co-wrote 2nd song

with Bon Jovi.

July 3, 2016: Sharing Joy in Music!

Image

image

Young musicians circulated with

bells,  cymbals,  sound sticks

while guitarist played & sang.

The audience of children and adults

suggested songs and songstress

complied. The baby Hendrix, now

getting quite social and excited,

proceeded to pound on the baby

stroller, drumming a pattern,

nodding his head and he

sang some notes to tune

he was quite familiar with,

“The Wheels on the Bus.”

Sister Marley was skipping

using a Hula Hoop with

bumblebee stripes.

*    *    🙂    *    *

Break out some music,

celebrating in

whatever

form you

desire!
