This is a fun, month long challenge, hosted by Becky of “The Life of B”. Thanks, Becky! 🙂

This month’s theme is Lines & Squares

We try to find & photograph anything with lines of any kind, such as straight, wavy, curved, etc.

The most important rule of this challenge is that your photo Must be Square!

A photo I took the other day of a black, metal fence line. There is also a large spiky plant with the leaves arranged in lots of lines.

Actually we were at the Drivers License Renewal building here in town. We had to wait in line, of course, but we had chairs to sit in. 🙂

This is a month of blue! It’s a fun challenge created by Becky of “The Life of B”, and each day we show something blue. The only rule beside blue, is that the photo MUST be SQUARE!

As an added bonus, I’ve found songs with blue in the title or lyrics, or at least something to do with the photo. 🙂

Thanks, Becky!

Today is the last day of the Blue July Squares! It’s been a lot of fun to find blue things, and also some songs to go along with the photos.

Thank you, Becky, for hosting this wonderful challenge! 🙂

Song Lyric Sunday – Bragging

Standard

Song Lyric Sunday – Bragging

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/15/17

***

Thanks for hosting the SLS Challenge, Helen!

Here it is Monday, and I’m just doing the Song Lyric Sunday. 🙂

The prompt word that Helen suggests is ‘bragging’. Songs about bragging on yourself, I think. It was a bit hard to find one that I’d heard of that had anything to do with bragging. This one seems about right. I don’t know if that’s really the intention of this song, but to me the lyrics seem to say she is so wonderful, and thinks so highly of herself, that only the best things will do for her. That goes for boyfriends, as well as material objects that are offered to her.

“Material Girl”, by Madonna, was released from her album, “Like a Virgin”, in 1985. It was written by Peter Brown, and Robert Rans, and is on the Sire – Warner Bros. label.

Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me
I think they’re O.K.
If they don’t give me proper credit
I just walk away

They can beg and they can plead
But they can’t see the light, that’s right
‘Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
Is always Mister Right, ’cause we are

[Chorus:]
Living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

Some boys romance, some boys slow dance
That’s all right with me
If they can’t raise my interest then I
Have to let them be

Some boys try and some boys lie but
I don’t let them play
Only boys that save their pennies
Make my rainy day, ’cause they are

[Chorus x2]

Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world
[repeat]

Boys may come and boys may go
And that’s all right you see
Experience has made me rich
And now they’re after me, ’cause everybody’s

[Chorus x2]

A material, a material, a material, a material world

Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world
[repeat and fade]
