Lasting Memories Summer Songs

This week at Lasting Memories we are "Sweatin' to the Oldies by using summer song lyrics from the 50's to the 70"s!  And since I grew up in the 70's of course I had to use a Chicago song, Saturday in the Park. Did you know that originally it was suppose to be for a home movie? Instead it became the group's first gold single!

This page celebrates James new dog Persius. He is a 7 month old horse chocolate lab rescued from the Humane Society. He is registered and a sweet dog (which is difficult for me to say because I did not want a horse eer puppy in my condo with three cats. Persius will be going to Purdue in the fall to chew up Jame's new apartment.(And I will never admit to James, that I will miss the pup! LOL)
