Happy Birthday to one of my favorite artists - Taylor Swift - Wikipedia

Swift first learned to play guitar from a computer repairman who showed her how to play three chords. After learning those three chords, she wrote her first song, "Lucky You". She began writing songs regularly and used it as outlet to help her with her pain from not fitting in at school. Other kids would react badly to her so she wrote songs about them.

Can you believe she ever felt pain from not fitting in - who's sorry now?

Love,
Chatty

Hi, Chatty... thanks so much for dropping by to visit me today! I'm going to check out all of your songs just as soon as I leave you a note.

My favorite Christmas songs are "O Holy Night" and "O Come All Ye Faithful." Then there's "Angels We Have Heard on High" and "O Come O Come Emanuel" and so many others making it hard to choose. I think my favorite singer at Christmas is either Perry Como or Andy Williams. I love their voices, but I also love Johnny Mathis' "Sleigh Ride" and "Chestnuts Roasting on An Open Fired." And I love, love, love Kenny G's Christmas album from several years ago. I adore him! I'm sure I'm forgetting someone.

You asked where I'm from, and that would be Florida. I see that you're a Georgia neighbor, right up the road! Marietta is such a pretty place! :-)

Sending you big hugs...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Hey Chatty!

I'm running behind because I have been sooooooo busy this weekend and today.

Love the cartoon! That is just too cute! I never gave it much thought that there are that many Christmas songs and I'm sure that there would have to be even more than that.

Merry Christmas!
Angela
