And Happy Diana Krall Day to Me

There may be trouble ahead, but while there's moonlight and music and love and romance, let's face the music and dance...



This is my real musical alter ego. And she almost sings in my register, so I can almost sing along with her. But this music comes to me out of my childhood, from watching movies like these in black and white in front of my grandmother's TV, from places like this, with dancers like this, and this time Nat King Cole sings it for us...



Which all came from this brilliant songwriter composer, Irving Berlin.

I hate to break into this musical moment of loveliness to tell you that you've been infected with the Splotchy virus. You can find out how to cure it at my place.

Oh honey that was so yesterday, or in your case, since you are sleeping now, that was so two days ago.

Hi Utah-

I love that sultry sound of Diane....

mmmmmmmmmmmmm

and I think that was you dancing, it is right? :-)

Love,
Gail
peace.....

p.s. also, I am going to see how many times I can use the word 'sultry' today. Great word.

Love the music and the continuing of Dcup's story. I started a blog for the earrings. Wish the pictures could do them justice. Please visit:

Have a nice Monday. Talk soon.

Isn't it funny how if you change it to a minor key, and change the tempo, you get such a different song?

Sultry, indeed.

I usually don't like Diana Krall that much, but that really spoke to me. Thanks Utah.

Save the last dance for me, ça-va?

Oh god, be still my heart. It's Tengrain. Can I unpublish the next post before it ruins the magic?
