Come On Now and Shout
August 9, 2017 1:23pm CST
The Isley Brothers came out with a super song when they recorded “Shout” in 1959. Soon everyone was jumping and shouting and this song became a part of a lot of celebrations and weddings. It is the song that first came to my mind in the wee hours of the morning. I will try and tell you about my crazy morning in my own way. First of all let me say that after so many years of being blessed by good health my hubby and I have always counted our blessings. In fact I cannot even remember the last time we had a virus or even the flu. So now after all this time when Martin came down with pneumonia his body is having a hard time shaking the darn bacteria that have attacked him. Presently he seems fine and he has an appetite but then his fever spikes up and down. We will have to consider plan B after this week if everything is not over and done with. Now back to shout. Three o’clock in the morning he needs some hot tea because he is feeling cold. Well I can understand that but I am half asleep still. So down the stairs now shout, boil the water shout and up the stairs with hot tea shout. Finally back into bed the cat wants some loving and a snack. Get up now and shout, feed the cat shout, run about until you can lay back down come on now and shout. Well you get the picture and why this song was in my mind. Then it was back to running and doing and luckily for once he was hungry for some breakfast. Once I came back up I decided that heck with sleep I would take a look online and then lay down later. I figured it was already past eight but everyone including our four footed one had started before seven already. So come on now and shout, lift up your hands and shout etc. etc. etc. Finally having some PC time. In the photo you see Sid having joined his papa among the bed blankets and getting ready to have some sleep. Do you have some really hectic days as well when you feel like come on now and shout?

Shout is very popular at parties and weddings and it's one song that will get everyone up to dance. I can imagine how you must have felt at the wee hours of the morning when you were going up and down the stairs taking care of hubby and Sid. I'm sure everyone went back to sleep except you

Aww, you are having a rough time being a caretaker. Sid is being a beautiful nurse. lol I went through those moments last August 25, when my husband had neck surgery. It's been a long haul, with another year to go. So, yes, been there, done that. I'm sure your hubby would do the same for you. Hugs!

Hey thanks you're right @Kandae11 The Beatles did do it and I love their version. Look at Ringo banging those drums.
