Theme Song Thursday: Luck

15 Aug

“Learn to recognize good luck when it’s waving at you, hoping to get your attention.”
― Sally Koslow
*************
This week has been laden with lucky signs. Last night I found a shiny lucky penny on my evening walk, but earlier in the week, I found three feathers at the bottom of a dresser drawer when I was cleaning it out. It was kinda weird and optimistic at the same time. Then, I found two feathers at the bottom of a drawer in the dining room the next day. One morning, there was a feather on the street and one on the grass nearby, almost like an arrow pointing to Sheila Johnson’s house. The next morning, Sheila was watering her plants, so I stopped to chat with her and told her about the feathers.

I’m very superstitious and believe in signs. There have been a lot of signs. I know they are all good and supposed to comfort and guide me. I just wish they could be a little more explicit. Maybe I need talking signs. Maybe even singing show tune type signs. I have been listening to my Sinatra CD in the car a lot. I love to sing along with this one…perhaps a sign.

LUCK BE A LADY TONIGHT

Well, they call you lady luck
But there is room for doubt
At times you have a very un-lady-like way
Of running out
Your on this date with me
And the pickin’s have been lush
And yet before the evening is over
You might give me the brush
You might forget your manners
You might refuse to stay
And so the best that I can do is pray
Luck be a lady tonight
Luck be a lady tonight
Luck if you’ve ever been a lady to begin with
Please be a lady tonight
Luck let a gentleman see
Just how nice a dame you can be
I know the way you’ve treated
All those girls before me
Please be a lady with me
A lady doesn’t leave her escort
It isn’t fair, and it isn’t nice
A lady doesn’t wander all over the room
And then blow on some other guys dice
Why do we keep [Incomprehensible] eyes
Never get out of my sight
Stick with me, baby
I’m the fella you came in with
Luck be a lady tonight
Luck let a gentleman see
Just how nice a dame you can be
I know the way you’ve treated
Other guys you’ve been with
Luck be a lady with me
A lady never flirts with strangers
She have a heart, she’ll be nice
A lady doesn’t wander all over the room
And then blow on some other guys dice
So why don’t we keep this party polite
Never get out of my sight, no way
Stick with me, baby
I’m the guy that you came in with
Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady, luck be a lady
This very night, this night
Be a lady

    Besides lucky feather and penny, what are the other lucky signs?

      I like butterflies as signs, too. Sometimes I see a bird on a roof singing to me, I think he’s talking to me. There are signs everywhere. What are your signs?

        I don’t know. When I see a dove among other pigeons, some don’t realize it. I am trying to find the dove rearer but not sure its whereabouts. Weird

    I like those pennies. The last one is so worn, you can almost see an angel peeking out.
