When the Dogs Say Goodnight:

For those who are not aware, B is an “on air personality” at a local radio station. When we first met, I would often call him during his show and request "What A Wonderful World" as this is one of my all time favorite songs. Although, this song is not on his playlist, he would somehow manage to seek it in. Years later, while on one of our long distance road trips, he put in a CD with the song, I’m singing along (which sounds more like a shrieking sound) and get to the words “When the dogs say goodnight”. B bursts out laughing, I think he is amused at my “so called” singing, when he looks at me and says, “The Dark Sacred Night.” Oh, ok then. With dogs being a large part of my life for so many years, and witnessing their evening routine, “When the dogs say goodnight” made perfect sense to me!

...I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself:
"What a wonderful world!"

Well, you can come sing with us!!! We change the words to most every song on the radio to fit our family and Vader. It's funny to see what we come up with sometimes.

I love you take on the song too!!

I love this song. I am caught by my bf singing the wrong words to songs often. He knows every word to almost any song-lol! Beautiful picure!

I am leaving on Saturday and the wedding is on Wednesday.
Have a great Thursday!

Vader's mom ~ I always make up words or just hummm. But you really don't want to hear me sing.

Mercedes ~ Thank you.

Ivanhoe ~ less than a week. I am so excited for you.

Empty Nest ~ I have not heard the Michael Buble version. Is it on his new CD? I will have B hunt it down.
