Show & Tell: I Might Be Moving To Montana...

Hubby and I have shared our dreams with each other for almost 21 years now. Imagine my surprise when, a few years ago, I found out that all this time he has wanted to move to Montana. That he went once as a child and it was his most favorite place in the world!

I have never let him live it down. How dare he hold out on me!!

I was sharing with my brother our hopes to go to Montana this summer to celebrate our youngest graduating high school (big dreaming there:), and my brother pulls this song up on his computer. A plan was hatched:)

First I looked up the lyrics on line, copy+paste=perfect!
Frank Zappa "Montana" Lyrics:
I might be movin'
to Montana soon
Just to raise me up a crop of
Dental Floss

Raisin' it up
Waxen it down
In a little white box
That I can sell uptown

I bought some dental floss

By myself I wouldn't
Have no boss,
But I'd be raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss

Raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss

Well I just might
grow me some bees
But I'd leave the sweet stuff
To somebody else . .
. but then, on the
other hand I would

Keep the wax
N' melt it down
Pluck some Floss
N' swish it aroun'

I'd have me a crop
An' it'd be on top
(that's why I'm
movin' to Montana)

Movin' to Montana soon
Gonna be a Dental Floss
tycoon (yes I am)
Movin' to Montana soon
Gonna be a mennil-toss flykune

I'm pluckin' the ol'
Dennil Floss
That's growin' on the prairie
Pluckin' the floss!
I plucked all day an'
all nite an' all
Afternoon . . .

I went looking for the perfect pony

I'm ridin' a small tiny hoss
(His name is MIGHTY LITTLE)
He's a good hoss
Even though
He's a bit dinky to
strap a big saddle or
Blanket on anyway
He's a bit dinky to
strap a big saddle or
Blanket on anyway
Any way

I'm pluckin' the ol'
Dennil Floss
Even if you think it
is a little silly,
folks
I don't care if you think
it's silly, folks
I don't care if you think
it's silly, folks

I'm gonna find me a horse
Just about this big,
An' ride him all along
the border line

With a
Pair of heavy-duty
Zircon-encrusted
tweezers in my hand
Every other wrangler would say
I was mighty grand

By myself I wouldn't
Have no boss,
But I'd be raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss

Raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss
Raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss

Found the perfect container (Pop Rock Candy went to Taylor), notice it says Pop Rocks-kind of like hubby rocks:)

Well I might
Ride along the border
With my tweezers gleamin'
In the moon-lighty night

And then I'd
Get a cuppa cawfee
N' give my foot a push . . .
Just me 'n the pygmy pony
Over the Dennil Floss Bush

N' then I might just
Jump back on
An' ride
Like a cowboy
Into the dawn to Montana

Put it all together, and I was ready for Valentine's day! EXCEPT hubby gave me the flu and we spent Valentine's day together sick as dogs, napping most of the day)


Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
I emailed hubby the lyrics on Saturday night (I wasn't going to give him and Taylor their 'stuff' til Sunday), and he said 'so when are we getting some dental floss?'

When I gave him the container-stuffed with fruit chews, the pony and dental floss, hubby said "So, are you going to be my Dental Floss Queen?"

AAAHHHH its fun to play!
So tell me, is this a song you've heard before????



In other news, Friday, before I got sick, I went shopping!! No time limit, no rush!

Our grands gave us the little puppies and card with their sweet scribbles inside. Just perfect! Taylor received the pink container full of Mike&Ike candy, Pop Rock packages, and a heart of choc candy.)


My Dutch Anthurium:) (cause I love me:)

New (to me) table scarf? rug? whatever:) and wood fruit

Desk organizer for my desk, that will some day be organized:)

It holds all these goodies in one place.

I don't see us MOVING to Montana, but I would love to visit:)
I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's day.
Happy Show and Tell Friday!!!

How funny; I have NEVER heard that song. I'd love to visit Montana, too, but I freeze when I get to Oklahoma, so I don't know that I could take the winter up there!

Looks like if you are in a very good mood, lol !
I had a friend who married an American from Montana and moved there. It's a beautiful State but not really easy to find a good work.
I remember the mountains.

I always had the dream of moving to Alaska as a kid. I grew up reading all those Jack London books.

My family is all chipping in to split the cost of taking a cruise up there this summer, so I'll finally get to see if it's all I dreamed of heh heh.
