|'Through My Little Girl Eyes'||'Hush And Be Quiet'|
It is based on remembering what a great time I had when I
was growing up. We were very poor financially, but not
poor emotionally or physically. The simple things we really
enjoyed doing...flying kites, catching lightening bugs,
chasing butterflies, talking to the cows and trying to catch
Mom and Dad worked all week, and during their work time
we would stay with our Grandmother. She would let us play
with all of her many trinkets, if we would clean and dust
where they were sitting. We had a great time doing that!
My parents loved us very much and I remembered -
'Through My Little Girl Eyes'
This song is about reflection from the past to the present
and the future of ones life. And meditating on how
things keep changing through life, then in the end what
is really important. It is very important for us to take
time to reflect on our lives to see how far we have come
and where we are headed. We need time to -
'Hush and Be Quiet'
|'Soft'||'In The Eyes of The Artist'|
My mother fell asleep in death in 2003. I kept a journal and
wrote to her all my activities and feelings. That helped
some, but I needed to do more. In 2006 I wrote about her
in song. I remembered all the wonderful things she did for
and with us children. I still sing the song to my husband
Everything about her was 'Soft'. She was part French, part
Indian. She had beautiful dark, think, wavy long hair when
she was a young woman. It was 'Soft'. She made each of us
children feel very important to her. That made us feel very
secure and very loved.
She taught us how to pray. And she would listen to our
prayers at night. So I really appreciates God's promise in
the Bible of the Resurrection hope. And one day I will
welcome my mother back here to life and a paradise earth.
(John 5:25, 28, 29) Then I can sing to her 'Soft'.
This song is inspired by Duncan Regehr, a Royal

'In the Eyes of the Artist'
|'Walkin' Up The River'||'What Daddy Would Sing'|
The song is about two young boys who take a journey up
the river and all the fun, excitement, and adventure they
find along the way. The song was inspired at first by my
husband and his younger brother. Then, our two young
nephews, Kendall and Kristopher took this trip.
This song will inspire and warm your hearts as you take this
journey with these two young boys as they are ...
'Walkin Up the River'
My Papa was the best guitar player I have ever heard.
He loved to entertain. His mother was a music teacher
and most of her eight children could play all kinds of
When Papa played guitar it sounded as if many guitars
were playing at the same time. We played and sang
together everyday and I never grew tired of hearing him
play. I always liked hearing Papa play and sing 'Why Do
Girls Wear Britches?' It was funny and he sang it with
personality. I feel close to my dad when I sing, ...

|'Music Man'||'Up and Down Strolling'|
This song is inspired by the great Steve Hornbeak. This man
can create and adapt a simple composition into a gigantic,
So, listen and take a journey with this 'Music Man'.
My husband inspired me to write this song. All through
his life he loved to dance.
When he was in Vietnam the USO girls would pull him
out of the audience to dance with them. However, when
he came home from Vietnam, he was struck with
Multiple Sclerosis. Now he is wheel chair bound with
Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. Although he can no
longer move his legs, he still likes to move his wheel
chair to the beat of the music.
This song is about his desire to dance and we go...
'Up and Down Strolling'.
|'Honest and True'||'Time'|
For many years, my husband looked for a true love and even
wondered if there was such a thing as true love. Even while
he was in Vietnam, he was still looking for true love. When
he came home, a love he had left had found another.
Eventually he became engaged and she found another. So,
he was wondering if there was such a wonderful thing as
honest true love.
Then one day while visiting friends, there was a new friend
among them. I was the new friend. We only met when we
were with friends. We would walk and talk about everything.
We have been married over 25 years. We both found...
'Honest True Love'.
This song was created out of frustration for a lack of
time, as we have gotten older. Schedules are very
cramped. And remembering that when we were young,
time really did not mean anything for we had not
major responsibilities. Sometimes we are just looking
|'If I Had A Million Dollars'||'Fun In The Sun'|
My parents took us to our first drive-in movie when I was
The lyrics are, "If I had a million dollars, I'd sail across the
sea, and visit King Kong and Godzilla and bring them home
with me." Years later, I remembered the lyrics and how that
little song became a family affair. So in the song, I added
how much my parents and grandparents enjoyed our
little song, 'If I Had A Million Dollars'.
This song was created out of our many fun times when
we visited Panama City Beach, Florida, which is an
exciting place to visit.
This is just a small portion of our scrapbook of many,
many enjoyable things we did.
One of our favorite adventures near Panama City Beach
was our island that we had while we were visiting. It was
breathtaking. It was another world to be there and enjoy
'Fun In The Sun'.
