Good morning, all
Saturday is always fun because it's when 
lets us all have fun, playing in her
The rules seem to change each week as she
gives us the amount of words to use..
sometimes, we choose a picture....sometimes she chooses it for us.
She can explain it all MUCH better than I
so do go over and
This week, we may choose a picture,
use 50 words or less,
and she gives us the words,
"You are my sunshine.....
Since this is only my 2nd time to play,
you have to bear with me until I can
really get into the thick of things.... 
a favorite song,
of my daughter's
when she was young.

tho I never could bring
a true note to the song,
it was fun !
♫♪♫  ♫♪♪ 

I am also linking with a BRAND NEW MEME
that is going to be more fun than A BARREL OF MONKEYS

Isn't singing with the children or grandchildren a delight? I think I shall try to teach this song to my daughter. She's got a good voice for a seven year old.
Best wishes,

How fun, I love it! I had a hard time trying to get past the song to come up with something to write. Happy Weekend BJ:@)

What fun prompts Jenny provides... I enjoyed reading your 50 words and I must say that Stacy has good taste in music. What's not to love about a cheerful, upbeat song like You are My Sunshine?!

I noticed that you don't brake for word verification blogs anymore. I think I must come to this as well. I am trying to understand the problem that some of the bloggers say that they are having, but I just don't get it. I have had a few incidents with spammers as well and I don't resort to slapping on word verifications. They are reported and I go merrily on my way for days and days before I see any more of the stuff.


Love this song, I'm going to teach it to my grand Victoria, who's 7 and learning Eng. very well! Now for your gorgeous grands, wow!, such big kids, why girl friend, did you get married at 12??!! You even have a great-one too! God bless them and you. Happy Sat. too.

Cute post, BJ!

I've never even tried to do Mizzzzz Jennny's Sat. things. :-)

Oh, I love your photo! The emotions evoked by so few words is amazing. Thanks for a great Centus.

My favorite song I sing it to Ryker all the time

Ames said...

My daughter had a favorite song too! Now I sing it to my grandaughter. Blessings~Ames

EmptyNester said...

That looks like FUN! You did a great job!

My oldest daughter hated that song from the moment she first heard it as a toddler because it makes her cry!


Thank you for coming dear BJ and for the lovely comment. Thank you for letting me know about this and I saw it, I pressed where it says FABBY'S LIVING and it showed up and this has pappened to me with some bloggers too, from time to time, I don't know why. Have a nice Sat. and Sunday. FABBY

Hi BJ, this is a cute post. Miss Jenny keeps us on our toes, for sure. I am hooked on Alphabe-Thursday. You are great at this! xo,

Bookie said...

You are definitely in the swing...this is a very nice piece.

Judie said...

My children always loved that song as well. My grandmother sang it to me when I was young and I always harmonized with her. Great fun!!!

upinthecosmos said...

cute little ditty & when singing with kids it's no holds barred cause they really don't care if you can sing or not. I'm sure she appreciated that you did:-)

Pondside said...

I sang that one to both my children, because my mother sang it to me.
Very sweet post and picture!

noexcuses said...

I loved this! You are doing very well for a newbie! This is a great baby-singing song!

Sweet Tea said...

"You are my Sunshine" - what a great compliment when you REALLY think about it! I'm very thankful for all the Sunshine in my life!

Daydreamertoo said...

Children do have a way of bringing sunshine into our lives.
Lovely use of the centus, :)

Natasha in Oz said...

That is such a great song. It is still used a lot in Ads and I only just heard it yesterday!

If you have 5 minutes to spare please drop by and check out my latest post. I have started a new Weekend linky party where you can link up posts about your favourite songs or your your favourite Pinterest Pins, or even both! This post would be great to link up!

Best wishes and happy weekend BJ!

Bj, thank you for letting me know that my word varification was on. It is off now and for good. Love this song to sing to little ones. Children don't care if you are off key or not so. Decor. Lady

Jo said...

oh you are right in the thick of things! What a humerous take on the prompt! said...

That's a really fun, bouncy poem. Great use of the prompt!

Dazee Dreamer said...

well, for only being your 2nd week, you did a great, great job.

Jean said...

I'm going over to check it out. Looks like fun.

When I was 16, I spent a week in the hospital. My nephew BJ (the one who first called me La) was only 3. He called me on the phone in the hospital and sang You Are My Sunshine. :o)

5thsister said...

With my little's I found it didn't matter if I was on tune or was the love that was shared through the song that mattered most. You are doing wonderfully!

xinex said...

Oh you are good, BJ. You should
have been a composer....Christine

Holly said...

HI BJ~ When I stop by your blog, I just feel happy - or should I say blessed? Love the pics of your family - yes, you are blessed!

Chatty Crone said...

My mom used to sing it for me - I sang if for my daughter - and now she sings it for my grandson! Sandie

Bunny Jean said...

Hey BJ,

I found my way to this new party thanks to you.

I thought if you can do it... so can I ;)

I even mentioned you in my post!

xoxo Bunny Jean

My mom always used to sing it to me. Great memories!

My MoMa used to volunteer me for all sorts of performing arts as a youth. I USE to have a great deal of talent! One year at our annual Memorial Day program which she organized,I was told I would be singing,"You are my Sunshine." When I ask," Where's the score?", she nearly dropped her teeth. I had never heard it. No one had the score. She had a lady in town come over and sing that song over and over and over to me. I will NEVER forget that...ever. To a musician...this has disater written all over it! WELL...not only did I sing "You are my Sunshine"...but there were tears from widows and a standing ovation.
My son and daughter ~in~law's niece sang it to them at their bridal shower...she was age six at the time! So sweet!!! Thanks for reminding me of the joy that comes from this song!

Kathleen Grace said...

I sang to my girls when they were little and I still sing to them sometimes:>) Have a great week BJ!

Madge said...

I sang to Haley this weekend and she sang back
Twinkle twinkle little star how I wonder what you had for breakfast.
Gotta love the 3's

For a 'newbie' you are doing well especially as Miss Jenny is being a bit cheeky! I loved this!

Kathleen said...

BJ, you are the super sleuth of memes! I can't believe how many you find to join! :)
I am not fond of roosters, but I did look at yours! Loved the napkin ring!

Jenny said...

BJ. Love this tender little link! This made my heart smile. I can tell you are a woman who loves big!

Thanks for sharing this.
