Serene Sunday – Chances Are

Hello Dear Reader.  I’ve been fighting with Winston, still, this past week.  Right now, he’s run off with his tail between his legs.  So, I’m seizing this window of opportunity to post Serene Sunday.  It just so happens I got a request while chatting in ArmitageWorld last night.  The chatter loves Johnny Mathis’s smooth lush vocals and requested a specific song.  Said she, “Of course, I think of the words as they pertain to RA!”  So, this is for you (you know who you are).

Here is Johnny Mathis singing “Chances Are.”  According to good ole Wikipedia,  “It was listed on Billboard‘s “Most Played by Jockeys” survey for Johnny Mathis, charting in 1957, and was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 1998. The song reached No. 4 on Billboard‘s Best Sellers in Stores survey, along with its flip “The Twelfth of Never.”

  1. This is lovely, Judiang. 
    Thanks for sending me off to sleep with such pleasant dReAms.
    Cheers!   Grati  ;->
    P.S.  And I’m glad to learn that you kicked Winston’s tush!

  2. Hi Judi.  I’ve been a fan of Johnny Mathis all my life – I can remember the first time I heard “Wonderful, Wonderful” on the radio!  My oldest brother (15 1/2 years older than I am) bought the 78 as soon as it went on the market. We had most of the famous records of that era and I still like listening to some of them on YouTube.

    When you say you were chatting in ArmitageWorld last night, do you mean on your own chat room above or somewhere else?  What time is this international chatroom open? I’m in Australia but I’m another insomniac like Angie (Long) so I’d probably still be awake when you’re all chatting.

    I’ve been having a “Spooks” marathon and am just up to the beginning of series 6 – started from Ep. 1 series 1, so almost up to when Richard joined the cast.

    • Hi Kathryn, I also have been enjoying a totally disjointed Spooks marathon…for some strange reason I only started watching this brilliant series from episode 7 mmmmm So I have watched 7,8,9,10 then 1,2,3…I was very much surprised how much I enjoyed this fantastic series even without our gorgeous Lucas.  Looking forward to watching 4,5,6…hope you enjoy the rest of Spooks…I’m sure you will, the best bits have yet to come xxxxx

      Luv Jules

    • Hi Katharyn,

      Yes, it’s the chatroom linked in the top right column of this blog.  People usually show up between 10pm and 1am EST ( 3 am and 6AM GMT) which I suppose is the middle of the afternoon to you.   🙂

  3. Great choice of pictures, Judiang! I wish you would not have to deal with Winston. I am sure it is nice to have Patty when you have to deal with all that.
