Summertime....and the guessin' wasn't eeeasssy.....Bloggers was jumpin' and landin' off the mark *laughing*

Okay, Barbara from The Serenity Gate got it right! Billie Holiday singing Summertime was what I had in mind as I wrote that scene. Virginia Kate interprets Billie's singing as deep and rusty -- the words "deep and rusty" probably threw people off - not "deep" as in how we always think, I guess -but how a girl would think deep and rusty is.

I was about to wet my drawers, jumping up and down, going "oh oh oh!" when y'all were so close *laughing*

Barbara - email me where you want me to mail your copy of Deborah Smith's ON BEAR MOUNTAIN

Now, go listen to Billie sing Summertime (link above) - don't you hear that "rusty edged" voice - that sound of Deep rivers where catfish jump?
The cool part of all this is I can see how my words were interpreted in different ways by you all choosing different songs and singers! *smiling* so, I'll just leave the words "deep" and "rusty" and let it be. What's also interesting and cool is you all gave me other ideas that work really well for interpretation of that scene! Like, stormy weather, god bless the child, et cetera!

this was wonderful! Thank You all!

Congrats Barbara~!

Don't I get some sort of "runner-up" prize for getting the song first? Maybe a tiara or a pretty sash. I've been wanting a sash.

The clue totally went over my head. :P Congrats, Barbara!

I got it, Barb - and should get it in the mail by tomorrow.....that postman is going to get to know me very well! *laughing* - I was just in there yes't-day mailing off something across the world! and across the us -- of course, he felt off my envelopes again *laughing*

Debbie - I'll search for the perfect tiara or sash -- and if I find one that seems to fit you just so and just right and ever so perfectly, I'll buy it and send it to you - even if it takes me 100 years, by dagnabit I'll do it! *laughing*

Love the idea of the friendship ball too.

I wonder if the twinkly eyed postman would appreciate you feeling up his envelopes :)

Listening to Billie Holiday this morning sent me on a sentimental journey through my collection of favourite singers, favourite songs. Thanks for the inspiration - and for the contest. That was fun. What are we doing tomorrow? ;>)

love the song... love love love. Wish it was Summertime now. I always am in a much better mood, more motivated, etc. during warm weather months.
