Right or Wrong – Wanda Jackson

“Right or Wrong” is a country music song written and performed by Wanda Jackson and recorded by other artists, including Ronnie Dove. When I listen to the song, I wonder what the right or wrong conflict was, but do not find an explanation anywhere.
A further delve into Wikipedia tells me about Miss Jackson and I came across an interview. It is worth a listen. It is lovely to hear her voice as she tells her story.

Living histories were done by the USS North Carolina BB55 and I have our father’s history recorded in audio format. This interview motivates me to get his words posted online and when I do, I will post it right here on my blog.

This is Wanda Jackson’s book. You can click on the picture to see more.

Here is a lovely interview with Wanda Jackson.

Circling to my Soul

Around the turntable the vinyl spins, the little circle spindled
Needles tracking and magically, sounds of Kansas reach my ears
Dust in the Wind plays to my soul, creating thoughts and sending electric vibes
Dropping another hit mix to the table Janis belts out her heart
Cat waits his turn while I sing along with my girl
And this is how it is when music speaks to my soul

This is a combination of prompts of my Kansas prompt for National Poetry Month and of the weekly Six Sentence Story prompt by Girlie on the Edge.
Who knows what tomorrow might bring.


Barred Owl Facts

Barred Owls have a rich baritone sound, often heard in southern swamps, calling to each other in the pleasant noises of friendship.

Nightly, hunting and calling is most frequent, but these owls may also be around during the day, especially at dawn and dusk when food may be more likely found.

The Great Horned Owl, being a larger owl and a bit more aggressive, their territory may encourage the Barred Owl’s movement away from open wooded areas.
Mice and small creatures, including squirrels, rabbits, opossums, shrews are fair game to owls; And just in case you didn’t know, they also may eat birds, frogs, salamanders, snakes, lizards, some insects and crayfish, crabs, and fish.

Nesting is established with both male and female, a duet of sorts, sometimes in old nests left by other creatures and perhaps alternating nests with some hawks. Mother owls stay in the nest with the eggs and the male takes care of the female and the young start flight at about 6 weeks old.
