Baseball, Hotdogs and Music!

Friday night HM and I went to see the Riverdogs with folks from his work. They had a picnic for us. Hot dogs, hamburgers, sodas, beer and chips for an hour before the game. It was so blazing hot! We had a great time inspite of the dismal performance of the Riverdogs against the Rome Braves. There were several small children with the group and they were a lot of fun to watch. The fireworks were epic. I was really surprised at just how impressive they were.

Now on to the really amazing part of the evening. In events that I will detail for you at a later date, HM proposed to me a few days after my father's death. We are getting married September 16th. We have been trying to come up with a first dance song for the reception. He came home a few days ago and suggested Van Morrison "Crazy Love". It is a cool song, but I wasn't sure it was THE one. Well, we walked in The Joe and started over to talk to some friends when I realized the song I could barely hear was "Crazy Love"! I grabbed HM and said "Listen, that's it!". He of course, thought I had lost my mind! I dragged him over to the guy who was playing acoustic guitar by the beer bar and sure enough , he was singing away! It was fate! :) After hearing it live, I changed my mind. I think we will use it after all. The guitarist did a great job. It is really a lovely little song. What do you think?

I can hear her heart beat for a thousand miles
And the heavens open every time she smiles
And when I come to her thats where I belong
Yet Im running to her like a rivers song

Chorus:She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
Shes got a fine sense of humor when Im feeling low down
And when I come to her when the sun goes down
Take away my trouble, take away my grief
Take away my heartache, in the night like a thief

Chorus:Yes I need her in the daytime
Yes I need her in the night
Yes I want to throw my arms around her
Kiss her hug her kiss her hug her tight
And when Im returning from so far away
She gives me some sweet lovin brighten up my day
Yes it makes me righteous, yes it makes me feel whole
Yes it makes me mellow down in to my soul
