Young Love

Cheri is hosting a new 6-month meme on her blog called Life Tunes. When I first read that this month's theme was "young love" or "summer love," it immediately brought to mind images of my Daddy strumming his guitar and singing the song Young Love.

Daddy was always singing, around the house, in the car, at church, out fishing, just about everywhere. Despite the fact that I really can't carry a tune, I loved singing along with him and remember many times loudly singing along in the car to songs on the radio or (gasp) an old 8-track as we traveled somewhere. I honestly can't remember if my sisters or Mama ever sang along, and I look back now and wonder how they put up with us at times!

I have a Project File in my craft room where I'm collecting photos, memorabilia, papers and embellishments with a music theme. I also have some old 45s that I'm planning to use as "pages" in a mini-album . . . someday. Maybe Cheri's new blog meme will be the push I need to get started on that project. For now, I'll leave you with a YouTube video I found of the song "Young Love."

 

Do any of you remember this song? Did you ever sing along to it?

I'm hoping to be able to join in with this one once, once I get back into my scrapping space.

My Mum was the one who sang round our house. And It makes me smile now , if I go to sing and hear a voice I think sounds very like hers

I can't wait to see what you do with your song. The memory alone is worth a scrapbook page.
