Throwback Music Saturday #171: The Drifters – Up On The Roof

Hope you can view!


Five for Friday


Well, it’s that time of week once again where I do battle with my brain and try to prevent it from pulling me over to the Dark Side.  Let’s see …

1. It’s definitely Spring and duck mating season once again.  The ducks are sitting up on the roofs once again.  I’ve never quite figured out what they’re doing up there.  Maybe she’s scoping out a new nest area for the year.  Maybe he’s eyeballing who is trying to steal his girl friend from him.  Regardless, I think “Ducks on the Roof” are kinda sorta funny but that’s just me.

2.  God, I love watching the icky bad white stuff melt in front of my eyes.  It’s a beautiful day once again and forecasted to be even warmer next week.

3.  They are working the dog poop out of me this week.  Uncle Sugar is definitely getting his money’s worth out of me.

4.  I think I’ll make a run to my store of dreams to pick up some materials to make some bird houses.  I have the bird house plan, the bill of materials and I have it all figured out how I will cut out the pieces.  I figure the gummys can help me assemble them and then they can put a coat of primer on them.  Then they can come back another weekend to paint them so they can take them home to hang from their trees.  That will be a fun project for them.

5. I should be able to start planting my garden in two weeks!  Woo hoo!

That’s it for this week.  Feel free to comment and/or wave “Hidey Ho!” on your way thru if’n ya want.   🙂


Thursday Morning


This big and bright yellow thing has appeared once again in blue skies over this part of “The Hundred Acre Wood“.  It’s warm and that’s all that I care about right now.  Temperatures are once agains returning to what they should normally be for central Minnesota and all of my icky bad white stuff is rapidly melting away.  This should all be good news for Boo Boo Sue and for Miss Leslie.  It’s all headed your way.

I’m going to dare to hope once again that the Spring Maiden has “FINALLY” chased off the Ice Maiden for the year.  My whole disposition has improved so much today just when I was able to get outside for a little bit of walking.  I’m way behind for the day but the sun feels so warm and wonderful that I really don’t care.

Life is good once again.

Tuesday Morning


So I’m wondering just how many bunnies that actually have running around out there.  The icky bad white stuff in my front yard is just littered this morning with tracks that weren’t there last night when I went to bed.  Too funny.

And “Yes” that little bandit showed back up this morning.  I watched it cross the snow and sneak in like a thief.  I let it feed for a while before I chased it off the feeder.  It’s one of God’s creatures too and it’s natural food supply is probably limited right now.  All it cost me was a little bird seed that I can easily replace.

I threw out some more seed on to the snow for the Juncos to pick up.  It’s funny how they have painted the snow with their hundreds of foot prints.  They’ve been great company along with my ever faithful Chickadees over this winter.

In the meanwhile, the skies are blue and the sun is out and warm today.  We shall see what this weekend brings.
