saturday scavenger hunt - shine

Someday I'll have the ability to upload photos, but I'm running with the theme of music inspirations. When I saw the word shine, the first thing that came to my head was this song. It's one of the songs I'll sing to the sky lying on a dock at night in Maine. I chose Nat singing it instead of Leon Redbone, because the extended syllables are closer to what I do. But of course I exaggerate it to the nth degree, loudly, for all the world to hear.

There's an extra 20 seconds on this after he ends. Just fyi.

Still having problems with the photos...this is never a good thing.

I like the way you improvise and play along. One day you will have the ability to put up photos again...

I like Nat too. I saw Natalie sing once, so that is as close as anyone can get now.

Thanks all. I may be close to uploading photos. I found the CD for the camera thing.

Nat is great. I ran into a lot of his old stuff when I found this. An old Sammy Davis Jr. thing and him.

I don't live in Maine. I just went there every year for 20 years in the summer, and the tradition is continuing.

Nice take on the word. Nat King Cole is so damn classy, isn't he?
