I am late getting my post up tonight, but better late than never, right?  It’s been raining like crazy the past few days – the poor hubby is getting fully acclimated to the Pacific Northwest weather in a big way. 

And you know that if we get any significant snow here this year, all my PNW friends and family are going to blame us for bringing the cold(er) weather here from Pennsylvania.

Since I’m late, and since it’s raining, and since I’ve been fighting the internet connection for hours now with the rain and wind storm constantly knocking the internet out, I’m going to limit this week’s selection to one simple song. 

This artist was born and raised in Leesburg, Georgia.  At age fourteen, his parents bought him his first guitar, and after learning to play it, he joined various local bands and began to play in local clubs.

He had planned to move to Nashville for the music industry, but his older brother died in a car accident the night before he moved, so he decided to attend a college closer to home because he felt as though his family was more important than going to Music City. 

He kept on with his music career, though, by playing with local bands.  In 2001, his father convinced him to move to Nashville and pursue a musical career.  He decided to become a country singer while he was at college.


Here’s the always handsome Luke Bryan with “Rain Is A Good Thing”:

While we’re still in limbo waiting for our house to sell in PA so we can close on a house out here, I’m still struggling to get back on track, and still trying to find time to get back in the groove with my blogging, especially the visiting all you awesome people part (which is sadly lacking at the moment) – having solid internet connection and uninterrupted time at my computer seems to be a non-existent entity at this moment, so please bear with me as I attempt to snag time as it comes along.

Thank you so much for visiting and commenting – I’ll return the favor as soon as I’m able! Have a great Monday!

Now on to the particulars of Monday’s Music Move’s Me:


I have the supreme honor and privilege of being a co-host with the inimitable Xmas Dolly and our musical cohorts, Callie from JAmericanSpice, Cathy from Cathy Kennedy’s Blog, and Naila Moon at Just the Stuff Ya Know.

The awesome Run DMT also hosts Music Monday (who graciously helps out with our hostessing every time we need it, and who I had the privilege of meeting in person at BlogHer – she’s even more adorable than I imagined):


More Monday Hops – hop along, won’t you?

Let's Get Social Sunday



  1. I have a good friend who lives in Leesburg. That’s an interesting tid-bit about Luke Bryan. So, love dancin’ to your weekly country rockin’ tune! I hope the rain passes…oh wait you’re in Washington where the rain is a common element. Good luck with the rain going away, huh? Well, I all the best to selling your house in PA, so you guys can get moved into your own place, with your own internet service, and for that more settled feeling in your lives. Don’t worry about not hopping & dancing with me at this time. I sure do understand and that all in good time you’ll swing by when everything works out. Here’s hoping you have a magical, musical week!

    1. Stacy…I don’t know how I did it, but I inserted Callie’s URL for my own. Call me crazy or just say it’s Monday or maybe a little bit of both is the reason for this mix up. lol

  2. Hello, my friend! I’ve always got your back, and even one song is more than I expected & your one song if totally FAB! I like this guy he’s a great entertainer, rockin’ song, and yeah he’s pretty hot!!! You go girl, and as always you & yours are in my prayers. Did you bury St. Joseph’s statute at your old house upside down? It helps to sell the house FAST! Hey old wives tale, but mine sold in three months after I did that. So, I know you’re out there now, but maybe you have a friend that would do that for you. HUGS… AND thank you for still joining us even though you have so much on your plate. If there’s something I can do… anything at all just let me know. Hugs…. Marie

  3. Perfect song for your condition 🙂

    I know it rains a lot in Seattle! My SIL was so happy to leave. She said it was dreary.

    Good luck with everything coming to line up properly.

  4. I think rain is great! Yet, I live in a Southern California desert and hardly ever get rain. I tell my hubby that I would like to live where it rains all the time, and he said I would get tired of it. I don’t think so. It’s not like Alaska where it’s dark all winter. You can at least go out in the rain and SEE things. Rain for us a flitting thing. When you hear that it is raining in the Los Angeles area, we are most likely windy like heck.

    Have a great day, and enjoy your weather because it’s sunny and warm here (always).
