A little bit of romance

I think I must be terribly romantic. I love Jane Austen's weaving love stories from the 1700's. I could read Pride and Prejudice over and over, and probably never tire of reading about Elizabeth and Darcy.

A few weeks ago, as I was checking out at one of my favorite thrift stores, there was a box filled with music CD's. There are no sleeve covering, so I guess that is why they were giving them away. When I looked through the box, it was mostly older tunes. I could take up to 10 CD's, so I picked out some that I thought I might be familiar with.

It was my intention to pop them into the CD player in the car and decide whether I would keep them or pass them on.

So they sat on the kitchen counter, waiting patiently for me in a zippy bag, until one day I threw the bag into my purse and took them with me.

The first few CD's were not very appealing to me, so I would fast forward them, and then pop it out and plug another one into the player. That is until this one -

I just don't know what it is about this CD, but I was swooning. Maybe it was the old show tunes, or maybe it was just the rendition. My Mom always liked the music from the theater and movies. But when these started, I was lost.

Climb Every Mountain, from the Sound of Music. Oh What a Beautiful Morning, from Oklahoma. Over the Rainbow, from Wizard of Oz. Sunrise, Sunset, from Fiddler on the Roof. The Impossible Dream, from Man of LaMancha. You'll Never Walk Alone........... I mean they just went on, and on.

It was such a pleasant ride, singing and swooning. I never did make it through the other 7 CD's!

Happy thriftin'.

I'm right there with you!! The Sound of Music ranks up there as one of my all time favorites and I think I know every word to every song in that movie. The other songs you mentioned come a pretty close second. Lucky you!!!

I love show tunes. Fun that you'll be able to enjoy these and probably the whole CD and not just a couple of tunes on it!

Just found your blog and am loving it! I could not agree more about Pride and Prejudice we moved to the UK for a few years last year and I just finished "re-reading" it for oh the 10th time! :)
