Cell phones just aren't the same.

I'm in the phone booth, it's the one across the hall
If you don't answer, I'll just ring it off the wall
I know he's there, but I just had to call
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
I heard your mother now she's going out the door
Did she go to work or just go to the store
All those things she said, I told you to ignore
Oh why can't we talk again
Oh why can't we talk again
Oh why can't we talk again
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

It's good to hear your voice, you know it's been so long
If I don't get your call then everything goes wrong
I want to tell you something you've known all along
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

I had to interrupt and stop this conversation
Your voice across the line gives me a strange sensation
I'd like to talk when I can show you my affection
Oh I can't control myself
Oh I can't control myself
Oh I can't control myself
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

Hang up and run to me
Whoah, hang up and run to me
Whoah, hang up and run to me
Whoah, hang up and run to me
Whoah oh oh oh run to me

Pie makes everything better.

When I think of summer, I think of berries - freshly picked and prepped for pie. This is a photo of my Mom's beloved mixed berry and peach pie. You can not beat her homemade crust.

Before I blogged tonight, I thought it would be cool to find some PIE contests, but to my surprise, there are a few National PIE days....

National Pie Day - January 23rd
PI DAY, March 14 (get it, "314")
Every Friday is Pie Day here....

I'm sure there are more, but sersiously, if you want some recognition for your pie, check out your local newspaper....

Here's to summer and pie. Wish I had some tonight with a scoop of vanilla, of course.

inspiring in so many ways.

It's always great to see a friend launch a new interactive solution to show the world something they need to know more about... My friend and artist - Susan Wickstrand, just relaunched her website. It's amazing how she captures the essence of the ocean emotions in her art. I'm in love with this painting featured here. It makes me want to run into my storage room, find my oil paints and paint on any surface I can get my hands on. Thanks for the inspiration today and ongoing...

Here's to you Susan - Congrats!
