An Amazing Man, Tony Bennett

September 20, 2011

I'm sitting here with my cup of coffee, watching "Let's Make A Deal" on TV.  There are new hosts (replacing Bob Barker) and there are a few minor changes, but it's just not the same.  The TV offerings are just as blah as the weather.  And trust me, today's weather is blah too.  Gray, cool, and promises of the wet stuff.

Yesterday, I couldn't get enough sleep (or at least rest in bed), and today is looking about the same.  It must be the change in the weather.  The weatherman is saying that this winter is going to be colder than average.  Not what I wanted to hear!   I can already feel the cold.  Brrrrr!

On a bright note, I'm looking forward to getting Tony Bennett's newest album "Duets II".  This man is awesome!  He is celebrating his 85th birthday with a new music album.   He was belting out number one hits when I was a teenager, and he's still doing it 60 years later!  His first big hit was "Because Of You" in 1951.

What I did not know was that he is an established painter.   I went online to look up some of his artwork, and found this beautiful painting.   Just looking at it makes me feel warmer.

Tootsie seems to be holding her own, but her appetite is not very good.   I have been tempting her with everything I can think of.  Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't work.  I think her doctor is on vacation this week, but I will call tomorrow anyway. 

Now I'm off to see what I can come up with to tempt my Tootsie into eating.  Dog food is definitely out of the question!   Hmmmmm!  I'll have to check what's in the freezer.  I just might have hamburgers in there.  Maybe she'll eat that?  We'll see.  Till tomorrow folks, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

It's often a lot less, when a change is done on a tv program. Specially the host of it. We've had some shows like that too. And when host has changed the program just isn;t the same anymore. I wonder why they always want to change things??? Sometimes people like to stick to the "old"thing.
That painting of Tony Bennet isn;t bad at all. It really makes you feel light on your feet looking t it. And I didn;t know either he was painting.
Hope you will find something in the freezer Tootsie will like to eat.
Have a lovely day.

What a beautiful painting. It's inspirational to see that one can continue to be alive and vibrant late into life.
Hope Tootsie's appetite perks up soon.
