Ten on Tuesday

This ToT is right in my wheelhouse, and looking at my friends' lists has been so much fun!  We've been asked to list ten of the albums we can listen to start to finish.  No skipping songs allowed.

1.  Main Course --- Bee Gees
My be-all and end-all album.

2.  Go For Broke --- Ian Matthews
I had never heard of him, but read a review of this album in Rolling Stone, and wanted to give it a chance.  I've gotten everything he's made since.

3.  Keeper of the Flame --- Delbert McClinton
Ah, Delbert.  You couln't have gotten any closer to perfection.

4.  Here at Last, Bee Gees Live
'Cause it's the Bee Gees.  And they're live.

5.  Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town --- Emmylou Harris
Some of her best vocal work on some genius lyrics.

6.  Graceland --- Paul Simon
The beats are good, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo a wonder, but the words to the songs are absolutely remarkable.

7.  A Wild and Crazy Guy --- Steve Martin
Still funny.  One of the best nights of my life was seeing him in person on this tour.

8.  Prisoner in Disguise --- Linda Ronstadt
If I could have anyone's singing voice, it would be hers.  And it does magic things on this record.

9.  EB 84 --- Everly Brothers
Speaking of voices. . .  I could put "The First in Line" on infinite replay.

10.  Backless --- Eric Clapton
It was hard to know which Clapton album to go with.  I almost went with No Reason to Cry, but this is better beginning to end.

  1. Okay I have to try Ian Matthews now!
    I love the Bee Gees and Paul Simons graceland too! May I say you have great taste? Saw Steve Martin in the 80s do routines at an outdoor theatre. It was so funny. SO funny. Love him.

#Chewy Influencer, March

Well, if you're a bit sensitive, you might want to turn away now.

One of my choices to try from Chewy was Fussie Cat dry food:


Since Madeleine is on a restricted diet, only Erin and Riley tried this.  And one, or both, of them developed --- how should I put this --- lower intestinal tract issues.  I don't know which it was (or, again, if it was both) because everyone has free access to every litter box.  Still, things were messy.

I believe this is the first product for the cats that I've had to truly negatively rate.  Sorry, Chewy.


As a Chewy Influencer, I am allowed to choose products to test --- for free --- each month.  There is no financial transaction of any kind.

Chewy Influencer, January, Part One

I have not been following the Chewy.com Influencer blogging rules, and for that I apologize.  I am supposed to post one entry for each product I try.  Here, then, is the first review of 2018.
I must start with a hearty thank you to my FedEx driver.  This was 40 pounds of litter packed along with a case of canned cat food.  That box was very, very, very heavy.
I like this litter.  While it doesn't seem to control odor any better than other litters we have used in this house, it is easier to scoop.  (The "lumps" don't cling to the sides of the litter box.)  It is also helpful that, despite being difficult to move around, the litter comes in a 40 pound bag.  Having three cats, we go through a lot of litter here, and having this much around the house keeps me from having to go buy smaller boxes or bags every few days.
So, thumbs up to Frisco litter.  As part of the Influencer program, I request and receive products to review monthly.  No money is exchanged at all betwee…

Winning Girl

VERA!  You will be getting this week's countdown prize.  If you send me your address, that is.  😄  Send it to handeyecrafts*at*hotmail*dot*com, and your mailbox will soon have a visitor.
You should probably know that Vera's answer was "Napping Girl," which also fits me.  Since socks sort of started this whole thing, I tried to imagine what a pair with each of your answers might look.  
Camille's "Baking Girl" is a girl with oven mitts on pulling cupcakes out of an oven.
Kathy's "Nature Girl," as per her answer, would be a girl with an owl.
Grace's "Sipping Tea Girl" is a girl in a comfy chair by a window, teacup in hand.
Bridget's "Laughing Girl" is a girl with her head thrown back in sheer delight.
Twinnie's "Alpaca Castrating Girl" is. . .
um. . .
well. . .
There's a girl. . .
and, uh . . .

Boy, we all congratulate Vera on her big win, don't we?
