It’s hardly ever completely silent around here. The TV is on from the time we get up, until I turn it off at bed time. We watch some things, but mostly it is just background noise. Once in awhile I do turn off the sound for a little bit.

I like hearing the birds tweeting, the wind rustling the tree leaves, and sometimes a dog barking. But, if I hear a dog barking (the neighbor has two of them – a big one and a little one), so if I hear them barking, I know they are barking at our outside cats. I have to go check, because sometimes the dogs get out and like to aggravate the cats. I have to yell at the dog to go back home.

A couple of times this week the big dog got in our back yard through a gap in the fence where the board slat had come loose. We try to patch it up on our side, but really the fence isn’t ours, it’s the neighbor’s, and they do nothing about the rotten wood that is falling apart.

So yeah, the dogs get out and when they get too close to the cats, the cats take a good old fashioned swipe with their claws right on the nose of the dog. The dog goes yelping and whining back home.  Not much silence then!

But what I started out wanting to write about is this… blogging silence.

Do you ever get the feeling that some bloggers just don’t like you and your posts? All you ever get is silence from them. There’s been a few over the years like that. I go to their blogs, leaving likes and some comments, and I get nothing but silence. I see they leave likes and comments all over the place, but not to me, ever.

I hope I’m not guilty of this, as I do try to get back to everyone, even it it takes awhile. Sorry if I’ve missed you, it’s not intentional.

That’s fine…not everyone has to like everything someone does, and I’m not here just to collect likes, but it still makes me wonder why. Finally, you just give up trying with them, even though others rave about what a nice person they are, and are one of the most popular blogger out there. Hmmm…silence…I don’t know.

51 WEEKS/51 SONGS FROM THE PAST

51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 24: Andrew Gold – Lonely Boy

Thanks, Hugh, for hosting this wonderful challenge! 🙂

So far in this challenge I’ve been posting songs I like to hear, and most bring back some memory of when I was listening to it.

It seems I may have just caught on to the fact that this challenge has a loose type theme to follow. I’m not really sure about that. This time it seems to be to post a song that makes you sad, or that you listened to at a sad time in your life.

Anyway, this song I’m featuring today has a very catchy tune, and I like it, but it give me chills, and tears. The thing is, it is actually based upon a very sad, and tragic true story. I’d heard of this story, before, but not in much detail, until I was researching the back story of the song. We even lived close by the town where this story began, and have visited there. It is a quiet, quaint little town, and it’s hard to believe how the story unfolds from there.

Give it a listen, and please listen to the reading of the circumstances of this tragedy in the short video after the song. I found this reading on the “Creepypasta” site. It’s called, “The Disappearance of Lela and Raymond Howard”. (the home page of the Creepypasta site can be found here  http://www.creepypasta.org/  )
