Alphabe-Thursday "L"

Jenny Matlock

[A]Long, long time ago,
I can still remember.
How the music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And, maybe, they’d be happy for a while.

But February made me shiver,
With each paper, I’d deliver..

Okay, all together…

So bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry.

(Thank you, Don McLean ~ 1971)

Okay, I cheated…but when I saw the L, it made me think of a long, long time ago.

L is for lame
L is for lazy
L is for livid
L is for Lord
L is for love
L is for lovely
L is for loyal

And as Garfield would say ~ L is for LASAGNA

So, my lazy classmates, before the lovely Mz. MatLock looks in and becomes livid, I lovingly suggest we turn our loyal hearts toward the task at hand. Dig those L’s out and Look aLive!

For more on Alphabe-Thursday, lug your lazy self (just kidding), over to the lovely Mz MatLock's and checkout the loyal link ups! After all, lucky for you, we don't want you to feel Looked over, left-out, or left behind!



  1. Well I am lazy , so there :P

  2. Great pLethora of L words :). Can you believe even my teenagers know that song? You have a fun and creative way of communicating. Btw I didn't say anything about the imaginary friends.

  3. This was wonderfully done!

    Love all the L's.

    Love American Pie.

    Love most pies.

  4. Okay, now you've done it. I won't be able to get American Pie out of my head all day. Good thing I love it LOL. Great L words.

  5. I'm with PJ and the pies:-) I saw Don McLean once many years ago at a folk/bluegrass festival in Warrenton VA. Drove from Chattanooga to Warrenton with a friend in his down...hashish in the pipe...wild and crazy were we...Wonderful post:-) Peace and blessings

  6. I forget to tell you I am in Okfuskee County.

  7. I love Garfield! And that is how I look in the morning, right down to the slippers.

  8. Hey, don't knock laziness unless you've tried the Garfield pics..

  10. I got the American Pie album the Christmas of 1972. Of my stars, i still know every word of the song! Thanks for the reminder.
