...remember a guy named Boone? Pat Boone?

CLICK HERE to join!!

The Thursday ThemeSong is a new meme [now the 3rd week]! And, it's been quite fun to have participants. I've visited all the ones that have played along, and the talents and ideas are stupendous! Do consider joining in. It's a simple concept. Just take lyrics of any song that has been written and recorded and match pictures to coincide with the lyrics. The rules and the Mr. Linky are found by clicking the button above! Now, my song/lyrics choice this week is----

On a day like today...

We pass the time away...

...writing LOVE LETTERS
in the sand----

How you laughed when I cried
Each time I saw the tide
Take our love letters from the sand

  1. O, being the olden age that I am, I remember Mr. Boone very well.

    OMG this is just perfect. Love love love that last photo. :) very well played my friend.

  3. Wow I loved this ... Hope all is well Anni & sorry I haven't been around in a while...I've been extremely busy & preoccupied with life.

  4. This is the first song I remember hearing on the radio as a young girl. Still love it to this day. I recently saw a public television fund raiser on Pat Boone. They showed him singing in the 50s on a TV program he had. And he looks good now too. I didn't know he wrote the lyrics to this song.

  5. Sandy Well, I don't think he wrote the lyrics, but he did record it!

  6. Beautiful photos to go with this great song. I really like the LOVE letters in the sand.

  7. I haven't heard that one in a long time! Now it's in my head!

  8. Gosh that's a real blast from the past. I like the way you illustrated the song.

  9. Pat Boone. Wow! Haven't thought of him in years. Love the song and pics to go with. I'm enjoying this meme!

  10. Hi

    loved today's post.
    I remember my mom listening to this song. She has sooo many albums of music like that
    have a great thursday

  11. Oh Anni you are so good at this...I've been racking my brain all week for a song I could put to pictures. The project stays in the back of my mind...and I will eventually have an entry,

  12. this is a nice post ... and thanks for dropping a comment at my place !

  13. Well, I still can't do this, but I plugged your great new meme on my blog today. http://bleemcguire.blogspot.com/2010/08/posting-on-thursday-how-unusual.html

    I'll keep thinking!

    I like your blog a lot with the variations ;-)
    Pat Boone was very popular in Denmark in (if I remember correct) 1950's and 1960's!

  15. I remember..He was dreamy when I was a young girl..loved those movies.
    What a neat meme.

  16. Aw...that's Hootin' Sweet :)

  17. So well done, the photos give a pensive mood to the words as they fade away...and you caught a gull on the last one! Love the beach, always have. Long ago I wrote some words in the sand and took a picture, and my toeprints showed up! Good job in reaching in so yours didn't show!

    This is a FUN meme, Anni, thanks for keeping it going!

  18. Hi Hootin' Annie. I posted the "Over 50" badge on my blog, so if you would list me as a member I would be greatly appreciative. The blog is called California Copy Chimp and the url is www.cacopychimp.blogspot.com.

    Aloha HA :) Yes that is the bus company I work for in my post for this. :) Have a wonderful day my dear :)

  20. Wow how creative and interesting - now I'll have to work on coming up with a song!

  21. I'll have to put my thinking cap on - I always have a song going through my mind, but getting pictures to coincide - a different game entirely. I'll see what I can do. Great one today - love Pat Boone! He's still going strong, from what I read the other day.

  22. He was part of my youth songs only I didn't understand a single word in English at that time. You know it is a big discovery for me when now I listen to these old songs and I understand the words. Some songs had such a stupid text, it was good that I didn't understand them. Lol !

  23. Dan You've been added to B over 50 :o)

  24. Anni you are a genius!!!! thank you
    for the song and is is one I grew up with.
    I'll work on that this weekend,
    Cecilia aka Mom of Madi and Mom

  25. Anni, sounds like a lot of fun and you've done a great job. Enjoyed visiting you again. Drop by my Nook for the latest.
