Workin' Fur The Weekend

We are about to make it to another FRIDAY! That means extra time with Mom - and a special guest! They don't think I heard them diskhuss it BUT rumour has it Khousin Merdie The GoldenDooftriever is khoming to Khamp Khyra!

I'm glad evfurryone enjoyed my sekhret trip to Mom's workplace. My pal Ekhho asked why she had all the khalendars - well, one khan never have toooooo many khute Siberian pikhs - plus, one was a gift and one was from TOTTSHR - and we are going to their hike N E X T S A T U R D A Y . The other one - well, must have been due to the rule of threes?

Time for me to turn it over to Mom for Musikh Momday BUT before I do I wanted to tell all my pals out there in the path of Hurrikhane Ike to please be safe. It does not look like it is going to be a good weekend in Texas. Doesn't Ike know you don't mess with Texas???

Okay, MFT - MY TURN NOW! Time for P-boys and men! Let's get started with my own personal most important P - P h i l O c h s although I'm ashamed to admit I never heard and/or listened to him when he was still alive and performing. One very special friend of mine introduced me to Phil's works and Phil's message. His songs were written in the 60's and 70's but sadly his messages khan so be applied to today's times. When trying to figure out which of his songs to feature here, since I khouldn't decide amongst all his message songs, I went with this beautiful song - probably one of the best songs Phil wrote - but then again, I khan be swayed by soft stuff! Plus my friend does an inkhredible version of it as well. It would be so nice to have Phil around today but he left us in 1976 but he left us lots to think about.

Another P will be one of the two Paul's that will feauture a song and/or myspace page. In this khase, Paul Young has a song I've always loved - it's actually a song Daryl Hall wrote - and it so fits our khanines - what do you think? I think our pups sing this to us as we leave.
The other Paul would be P a u l T h o r n . I found him whilst surfing myspace one day.

Pauls that will get honourable mention would be Anka, Kantner, McCartney, Weller, and Westerberg. HEY, I have to draw the line somewhere!

Okay, who of my generation doesn't own this guy's Frampton Khomes Alive album??? I even saw him here in York - wow!

Another guitar P: Pat Metheny - nice nice sound!

Then we have two former Genesis members: P e t e r G a b r i e l - and NO, it is NOT she's so funky now! AND then we have P h i l C o l l i n s - with a song I'm sure more than a few of us have felt the need/urge to sing! Plus, there is Phil with another P: Philip Bailey - Philip's voice range is tremendous!

Ummm - Prince - but he's a poopoo head - and doesn't pawmit his videos on Youtube BUT I found a great substitute - Ha-roooo!

I'll wrap it up with two newer and/or less known P's - P a t G r e e n - another one I was turned onto by a friend....and finally, P e t e r D a w s o n -who I akhtually saw when he performed in this area bakhk in 2004 - my friend opened for D r e w K e n n e d y who opened for Peter on a Thursday night - and then on Saturday, Peter and Drew did a show together in Merriland. Nice times - nice memories - nice nights!

I'm sure there are a few sad I didn't inkhlude Perry Como but MFT is khlawing fur her laptop bakhk!

Please share your P's and get ready for Musikh Monday/Momday P The Groups! I'm very 'p'syched fur I've got khwite the list!

Have a great rest of yours -please be safe this weekend!

Mum says that Paul Young song always makes her eyes leak! I think she is a bit of a soft touch!

Hope you have an awesome weekend beautiful,

Ooh, the new Frampton album is super-good! Such great muzak to listen to and chill out.

The Army of Four said...

The Phil and Phil song is one of Mom's favs.
Frampton does not come alive in our house. Ha woo.
How about Paolo Nutini for a new guy!?!?

Arrrrgh! We are totally frustrated in our efforts to post and leave comments since yesterday. Blogs keep disappearing on us, as do our comments. Such as the one we wrote you earlier.

We gave the one award to 5 cats & dogs in memory of Roscoe and the whole section disappeared and we had to rewrite it again today.

We're fortunate we have 3 woofies here to translate for us kitties. We never heard of the GoldenDooftriever breed, but Buddy says they're very popular. And he thinks Samaritan might be related to one.

My mom has Peter, Paul & Mary, Peter & Gordon & Paul Revere and the Raiders in her iTunes. There is also Peter something from Chicago who has great solo teary type songs. Seems to be a theme here of Peters...never heard of Phil Ochs or maybe my mom would recognize a song of his. Thanks for the list. We've fostered a few dooftrievers.

love & wags,

I love the big girl pantie sign....snicker snicker...Yes, Lil man has taught me even how to khlean mums eyes, and how to snuggle at night in bed, and to protect her and all kinds of stuff. Tell your mum not to leak. Mum was going to help lil man tonight cross over, but we have 6 inches of rain today here in KS and its just not a good day.
He has had mouth cancer for awhole year and two surgeries. He shouldn't be here, but his heart is so big.

Enjoy your weekend! We hope you have lotsa warm grass to roll in

Suka said...

hey Khyra,

Wow! So many "P" boys! Excellent choices! K LOVES Peter Gabriel and said he Rules! She also said Prince totally Rocks! The only "P" K has in her collection that you did not mention is Peter Murhpy, very cool. And he is not in her collection but don't forget Pete Townsend.
