See the curtains hangin’ in the window, in the evenin’ on a Friday night.
A little light a-shinin’ through the window, lets me know everything is alright.

If you’re ready for more lighter fare, this is the post for YOU!

In today’s post, the cousins take a magnificent trip into the past to visit a typical 1970’s weekend via Ron’s magical post, “Saturdays.”

***Warning: The cousins are acting da fool in this post, so get ready to hear us laugh out loud SEVERAL times!

Enjoy:

*Correction: RE: “The Fair” rides were provided by the James H. Drew Exposition not the John Drew Exposition as stated in the audio. Unfortunately, the Drew Exposition no longer comes to the fair in Augusta. It is now part of the Columbia County fair. What a loss for Augusta!

Lady G Quickie: On the Move

Not the same girl

 

Get your mind outta the gutter!

As the name indicates, Lady G is always, first and foremost, a lady 😉

And so…

From time to time, I’d like to quickly share whatever I’m currently enjoying without going into full post mode.

You know how that is 😉

Anyway, for all of my neo-soul, acid jazz, soul throw-back fans, this is for you.

“We are on the move” by Zo! featuring Eric Robertson and Phonté.

I love this groove!

The video is reminiscent of The Whispers during their heyday with S.O.L.A.R. (Sound of Los Angeles Records).

Shout out to California natives, Dave and Tareau over at TheCouchSports blog for doing their podcasting thing on I-Tunes!

AND

While I’m shouting out….

Big up to K. E. Garland and her new book “The Unhappy Wife.”

They are on the move!

YAAASSSSS!

Eric Robertson doing that run and kick thing is killing me!

DEAD!

Holler back in comments 🙂

Enjoy your weekend my loves.

Lady G 😘💋
