Don Gato and company

In the 80s we had a neighbor who played Senor Don Gato repeatedly on his cassette. The sound was loud enough to reach other houses. Fortunately, the song was amusing - a very cat-like human voice would respond "meow, meow, meow."  It probably helped that I'm an animal lover so I didn't mind hearing the song over and over. 

Mozart, my fur kid looks very much like this pooch. See how he dances :)

 Some of the things I love about living in Thailand are the elephants! They are called "chang" here. This is a clip of Thai children singing karaoke about a chang.

Good music, a most welcomed respite from the 'normal' poetry things. More educational in fact!

You have a very interesting mix here. I can tell you had fun with the animal theme! :-) And I learned something new today: chang. My youngest daughter loves elephants. I can't wait to tell her my new word.

Thanks for the MM shout out! xox :-)

after you bring Beer For My Horses, you can Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy) to find out Who Let The Dogs Out – the Dinosaurs did.

I love learning and music is the perfect way to teach. I learned 'chang' is elephant in Thai.

Oh, and I loved the French Poodle, I had a toy poodle as a child (slightly smaller than the French Poodle) and it reminded of my childhood dog :)
