Time--2017 A to Z Theme

My theme for the 2018 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is "Cleaning the Clutter"--I might literally be cleaning my closets or figuratively clearing the excess from some other part of my life. I'm sure you can think of other things this could mean for you as well.

Always a work in progress--welcome to my blog...

Yippee Yee Haw! ( #BOTB Results )

.
           Remember those cowboy heroes who were men of few words who just got down to doing what needed to be done?   Well, that's me on vacation--not necessarily heroic, but just gettin' it done.  Today I'm just delivering the results of my Battle of the Bands featuring the song "Cowboy Dreams"...


Battle of the Bands Results

   

       Some of you mentioned that this was a tough Battle and I agree.  I could go either way on this match as well, but since I've got to go with one of them then I'm going to cast my vote for Nigel Livingstone.   My reasons are much like some of you stated--the greater energy of the version and a preference for the instrumental back-up.  

      Jimmy Nails immediately ran off with the lead in this Battle, but Nigel Livingstone pulled up close behind in the final round of voting.   Good job Jimmy.   Not bad Nigel.

Final Vote Tally

Jimmy Nails              10 votes

Nigel Livingstone       7 votes


Next Battle on Sunday July 1st

          Since my next Battle is going to be a Sunday Battle then I'm going to take it to church--well, kind of church.   Hopefully I'll post it okay and as long as my computer cooperates I'm sure I will.

        Are you having a great summer so far?

    1. JoJo, I'm fine with nice summer weather, but I don't like the heat combined with humidity either.

  5. I nailed it! I hate summer. Always have. Humid and hot or dry and hot? Doesn't matter.

    1. Susan, when summer comes I'm a child again. Come to think of it I'm like a child much of the time these days.

  7. Summer ain't been the same since I got out of school and started working for a living. Back in my era of "Summer Vacations", when all Summer was spent at the beach, body-surfing and girl-watching, this season was the best. Now, if I could order it like a menu item, I'd ask the waitress to bring me 365 days of Fall weather.

    IMO, this was one of your best Battles in awhile, LEE. At the time I voted for Nigel, he was getting clobbered. I'm glad to see he made such an impressive comeback, because he didn't deserve the beat-down he was getting.

    See ya on the 1st, buddy! Enjoy the road.

    1. STMcC, I'd agree that Fall is pretty fine. And Spring isn't bad either.

      I'm so pleased that so many enjoyed this Battle. I was a bit concerned about using this unfamiliar song, but I'm glad it all turned out well.

      Having an incredible time on the road, but I usually do.
