Rock ‘n Roll

Buddy Holly

***

Rock ‘n Roll Stole My Soul … that’s a saying that is on one of my tank tops. I wear it a lot. I’ve loved rock music ever since I first heard any. Music makes the world go round, or is that love? “I love rock ‘n roll music. dah dah dah…” whatever the rest of the words go to that song.

“Rave On”, by Buddy Holly, was released in 1958. It was written by Sonny West, Bill Tilghman, and Norman Petty, and is on the Coral label.

Yes, the first thing I thought about for the prompt of ‘roll/role’ was the legendary rock ‘n roll musician, Buddy Holly.

Our city is the hometown of this gifted man, and we do have the Buddy Holly Center, a museum, a statue, and even streets named after him. He is buried in our city cemetery, and I’ve seen it many times. People leave guitar picks at the site.

Buddy Holly got his start right here, and even played his music at our skating rink back in the day. This was before my time of skating there, though. I think I heard that my aunt went to school with him…high school.

The place where the statue is, is called the Walk of Fame, and there are plaques with all the names of musicians, and actors who have come from here, and the areas near here. There are a lot of them.

The museum with all things Buddy Holly, also has a gift shop, where you can buy most anything you can think of to do with him. I’ve been there a lot of times.

Anyway, seeing the prompt ‘roll’ was a good one to get me thinking of rock ‘n roll, but then I do that all the time, anyway.

Have a fun Saturday, and enjoy some music of your choice. 🙂

  3. Back-to-school time makes me think of _____________________.

  1. If you were new to this area, I would suggest visiting the Buddy Holly Center. It is on the edge of the down town district. There are lots of Buddy Holly’s personal items, and really good informational things to read about his life and legend. There is also a gift shop, where you can buy souvenirs of all kinds.
  2. My favorite room here is the living room. This where I have my computer, in one corner, so I spend most of my time here. I can also look out the back door and see the cats we feed out there, and also the hanging bird feeder where cute birds come to eat.
  3. Back to school time reminds me of all the new school supplies. I love all kinds of things for school, and office, even today. I can’t resist getting some new spirals, or pens, and markers.
  4. My favorite year of school was in elementary classes, every year at Halloween time. Our school always put on a carnival. Every room had  different things to do, such as games to win prizes, food to eat, and everyone wore their costumes. The room mothers helped out. One year my mom was all dressed up as a gypsy fortune teller, and had a little booth. My cousins, aunt, and I also made things for giving away as prizes, which was fun. We made plaster of Paris figures/plaques, that we’d paint. They always turned out really good.
