Last week I played in a weekend Scrabble tournament in Port Richey. I took Friday off and got my dose of Vitamin D before the first games began at 6:30pm. This rack was for Blinky Blink who is my favorite engineer in the whole wide world. Ok, ok, so I don't know any other engineers but he'd still be my favorite. And who would have thought that engineers could be such good snugglers?! But I digress...

Stanger on the Shore/Acker Bilk: My mom
Your Song/Elton John: KB
Carolina in My Mind/James Taylor: Jean Pleasure Hill
Judy's Turn to Cry/Leslie Gore: Judy Parker Windhausen
Sherry/Four Seasons: My uncle, John - I wonder if he can still hit those high notes. I still remember his portable stereo with the detachable speakers. I would be the keeper of his 45s until he returned from Vietnam.
Nights in White Satin/Moody Blues: Dizi
Don't Say You Don't Remember/Beverly Bremers: Debbie Cavallaro
What's Up/4 Non Blondes: Diana Taylor - if you've ever been in her Mini Cooper with the top down, you're never going to forget this song.
Lady in Red/Chris DeBurgh: Garnet
Glory Days/Bruce Springsteen: Donna Williams - not only did we go to one of his concerts together but we have a cassette tape (yeah, it's old!) from the NYS Fair when we did the karaoke thing before it was even called karaoke!
I Love You Always Forever/Donna Lewis: Al Anderson - omg, you should see his blue eyes. You have to listen to the song...
Freebird/Wynonna Judd: Carol Nelson - you had to be there, that's all I'm going to say.
Auld Lang Syne/Dan Fogelberg: Victoria Champ - all she had to do was tell me how much she liked this song, too.
It's All in the Game/Tommy Edwards: My brother, Bill: My mom used to play this a lot when we were growing up.
Save a Horse (Ride A Cowboy)/Big & Rich: Cyd - this was one of the songs she wanted on our "Life is a Highway" cd that we made for our trip to Apalachicola last year.
Hate Me/Blue October: Stacey Phillips - I can't explain.
Stairway to Heaven/Led Zeppelin - Jeff Widergren
Battle for Everything/Five for Fighting - Scott McManus (the whole cd)
The list goes on and on. Curt and I don't really have a song because he's not a real music guy but I will always think of him when I hear "Lawyers, Guns and Money" by Warren Zevon or "Ballad of the Green Berets" because those are two of his favorite songs. And anything by Alice in Chains, The Allman Brothers, or AC/DC is always going to remind me of my brother, Tim. If you're not on my list yet, don't worry. It's just that we haven't made a memory yet. As for my friend, Tom (NYC Tom, that is!), I'm sure by the time we leave Little Italy next month that something will always remind me of him!
