Weed'em & Reap this Friday and what's your music this morning?

Posted Wednesday, July 6, 2011, at 7:55 AM

OK, the Weed'em & Reap Garden club meeting is somewhat self explanatory by now. We meet at the New Century Chinese Restaurant on Madison Strete at 7:00 PM. No dues, no officers, just garden talk.

What music am I talkin' about? Music in your head when you wake up! Sometimes I can link it to some music I heard the night before or a dream but this morning I haven't a clue.

Maybe because it is Summer and I am thinking back to my High School summers when I would go to the beach for week, but Freddy Cannon's "Action" has been playing in my head since about 6:00. You know "Oh baby come on, let me take you where the action is....It's so neat to meet your baby where the action is".

I have to turn on my AOL Radio. Only way to change the channel.

Eva Cassidy's "Kathy's Song," because I'm learning to finger-pick it right now on the guitar. It's been in my head the last several mornings in a row.

For all of you gardeners, now is a great time to stock up on seed. The Dollar General Store has all of their flower and vegetable seed packs on sale. Prices range between 17 to 62 cents per pack.

Wow that is a great price! Too bad I do not get into town more often.

welkindance, you are probably going to have that song in your head for a while. My finger tips are hurting just thinking about it.

Sorry for going off topic, but Steve was the last to mention the Farmer's Market changes. I can't find where you posted the new day/time schedule. Will you please refresh my memory? I've been craving this one vendor's pattypan squash for quite some time. Thanks so much!

It is supposed to start at 3:30 every Thursday at the Celebration Pavilion, BUT some of our garden club members say that if you show up at 3:30, some farmers may already be sold out.

They suggest coming an hour earlier to catch the farmers as they set up.

'Till the Storm Passes By' is the one in my head. It was written by Mosie Lister in the mid-50s and has been recorded by many quartets.

Just in case you want to hear welkindance's practice sessions http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5G860hkE0...

I've heard Simon and Garfunkel's version but I have to admit this one is captivating.

I had to do a little more searching for your song Leeii. Not because there were not many out there but because it took about 8 samplings before I found one that was loud enough, and slow enough (internet speed) that most people could hear and see it without pauses.

The one I found also has the words superimposed on the screen.

You have good reason to be playing it over in your mind. Brother Ronnie Lemmons (now deceased) used to sing some great ones that keep coming back to me as well.

I am not 100% sure about the name of the group he sang with, can anyone help me?
