The Song Remembers When

I can count on one hand (if the hand has 6 or 7 fingers) how many times in my life I have been out drinking in a bar. There are a couple reasons for this. One being that I'm not that much of a drinker. Another being of course that I don't feel all that comfortable being out.

All three of my kids have been blessed with wonderful singing voices. They got that pure and honest from their dad, because I can't carry a tune to save my life. I pity the people nearby when I DO sing because although I know I can't do it well, I still like to.


Some years ago though, when me and hubby were still dating, we were invited to tag along with my youngest son, his wife and my daughter to a karaoke bar. It's that night that prompts this post.

My son got up and sang the following song. Although he was very nervous, he did such a good job with it. I'm sure any Top 40 singer's mother couldn't have been prouder than I was at that moment.

Whenever I hear this song, it always makes me remember that night. And puts a smile on my face.

There's nothing there! Is it my lame computer, or blogger?

It's Garth Brooks singing Ain't Going Down Til The Sun Comes Up. :)

I like that song... I bet it was a lot of fun to watch your son sing it!

I love Garth! I think that song would be hard to sing, even if you can sing.

I can't sing either, and I haven't been to too many bars in my life. All the cigarette smoke makes it practically impossible for me. I have to decide ahead of time that I don't mind having burning eyes, a sore throat, and a head ache. Yep, not usually worth it.
