One Margarita, Two Margarita, Three Margarita

I was listening to Luke Bryan when a friend Barb said she needed a drink after a long tiring day! So for those who love Margarita's (like my neighbor Nancy) Cheers! I can never be wordless on Wordless Wednesday When I was young and foolish I loved tequila! The last time someone wanted to buy me a shot of it was about 1990 something in Trinidad, Colorado! I was with my friend Heather helping her display our Princess House products at a home show. We visited a local bar where she knew the proprietor and a customer said , honey let me buy you a shot of tequila. I replied, only if you have an ambulance service on standby! If I had a shooter back then I would have needed an ambulance. Our kids were small and drinking was not our habit anymore. But you could turn this frozen Margarita into a pitcher full of frozen lemonade.! (wink wink). Even the kids would enjoy that!

One Margarita by Luke Bryan :

Everybody here ain't from here
But we're here doin' our thing
Lettin' go a little, little by little
Sippin' on a frozen drink
Tiki bars tik'n, pourin' all weekend
Clouds ain't leakin' no rain
Two pieces shakin', white caps a-breakin'
We ain't feelin' no pain, it goes like
One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot
Don't worry 'bout tomorrow
Leave all your sorrow out here on the floatin' dock
When that sun lays down, we'll be on our way
One more barefoot round, one more last chance to say
"Hey Señorita, don't you think we need
A salt and a Buffett song?"
One margarita, two margarita, three margarita
We'll be gone
Ice blue skies, shades on the eyes
To tuck the bloodshot away
Hair of the dog, shouldn't take long
But who cares, we got all day
Palm trees

If I drank tequila today I would need Luke Bryan to dance with me to "Knockin Boots" another fun song of his! But I imagine his wife would prefer he dance with her (wink wink). Do you like music? If you do what do you listen to? I have said it before, my dad loved opera and he loved Eddie Arnold so I can listen to just about anything. I do love Luke Bryan and George Strait. Many years ago I won a contest on the Jazz radio station and was able to take my hubby to lunch with jazz performer Mindy Abair. At that time, she was only one of three female saxophonists worldwide. She was smitten with my husband and enjoyed his company. But another gentleman there took tons of photos and sent everyone copies on line. A co worker won another contest and had dinner with Peter White. He is a smooth jazz and fusion guitarist and was born in the United Kingdom. When we had a local jazz station they did lots of great contests and we saw Dave Koz and many great jazz artists at the Paramount in downtown Denver. I have a good appreciation of music and enjoy it immensely.
Halfway through the week. I hear people say since this chaos began they think days go by too  slooow. I disagree, which we all have our own opinion of things. Since this all started I think the days fly by way too quickly. I remember my folks telling me this when I was a kid. They use to say, when you get older you will realize how quickly time moves. It is certainly true for me. The month of May is nearly gone.  DO you think time moves slowly or quickly?
I Use a tea timer.  That little thing moves so fast too. 
I hope everyone is getting along with these weird times. I try to set my focus on things above. I don't trouble myself with the media or TV unless I can watch an old western. We went through a spell where we watched old murder mysteries like Columbo and Murder She Wrote. Although Peter Falk passed away sometime ago Angela Landsbury was still here in her 90's along with Dick van Dyke also 90 something! He starred in Diagnosis Murder.  Do you watch any TV programs new or old? 
My go to verse. There are those days....
Words for comfort and healing.

I'm often wordy on Wordless Wednesdays too. It's all good. Margarita's never did it for me. They were okay at best. I was more into wine.

We are both not watching the news and we're better for it. They are trying to scare folks to death and they have done a pretty good job with some.

Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Big hug, honey. ♥

I think time moves slowly. Or I tend to notice it more when I am bored.

So excited about the new baby.

Music I listen to:

jazz and doo-wop and house and trance.

And Lil Wayne I don't like the look of it. Which is based on a Willy Wonka mix.

And Basia's Perfect Mother and Copercurinus or Kopernik. [for some reason I find the Polish version of the astronomer's name easier to spell!]

The only time I drank Tequila was many moons ago in Cancun, Mexico. At the time I enjoyed it. I couldn't do it now. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Oh how my dear mother loved Margaritas. I can still close my eyes and remember the expression on her face when the server would sit one down in front of her. And her expression, "How special!"
Music? I'm all over the spectrum -- except RAP or HipHop, that is. Lately, I've been listening to a "Real Country" station that plays the old classics. Will have to ask my sax-playing hubby if he knows about Mindy Abair. What a thrill for Avery!
I love Shea's little onesie. That's a PERFECT saying!

I like country music too and classic rock. Not a fan of the stuff the kids listen to nowadays. That onesie is a hopeful reminder for anyone that lost a baby. XO

Never was much for drinking, and even less so now, although i do not mind at all if others indulge.

That precious one has everyone's heart i just know it. Happy Wednesday!

We're not into what is called music these days. We love that hand picked sweet Princess!!!

Nothing wrong with being wordy if there's a nice icy drink waiting for us at the end - or the beginning, like your post. May has gone too quickly for us. Started with snow, ending with weather in the high 80's/low 90's. Not that much TV for us; I am working from home three days a week. Alana

I am making it but a nice margarita with Luke would be wonderful! Nice to see you are doing well! Enjoy your day my friend, HUGS!

Hi Anne! I think the days go by pretty quickly. I never feel bored. I think it might be because it's flower time! God be with you!
