Happy Valentine's Day

Hello, Dear Ones and Happy Valentine's Day! Well, Tang has made so many friends in her new neighborhood that she wanted to host a special Valentin's Day party for them! Lola wasn't really sure at first because she isn't finished decorating the dining room. She hasn't even hung curtains or pictures yet! Oh, well.
 The dining room is absolutely packed with little animals!
 Before the guests arrived, Tang went to town decorating. She hung up a heart banner she made. Oops, I see she knocked a couple of plates down in the china cabinet. We'll have to fix that.
 She wanted to display all of her Valentines she'd received in the mail. She is so popular, you know!
 Since I had made all of the clay food she asked if she could share it with her friends and of course I said she could. So Lola and she brought out all of the food and placed it around the dining room for her guests.
 Look at all of the dogs! There are mostly dogs in the neighborhood but Tang gets along with them fabulously. As each dog guest entered the house, they were given a Valentine and ushered into the dining room.

They were also given a cinnamon roll but I don't think these dogs like cinnamon rolls because you can see they have all ended up on the floor with their Valentines!
 There is one little kitten who lives in the neighborhood but she was a little scared of all of the dogs and mostly stayed on top of the buffet. I think she ate a few of the cookies too.
 Oh, this little doggy got all tuckered out and found a quiet corner to nap a little nap.
 Tang thought of everything and even invited Barky Manilow to entertain her guests. Right now he's singing "I Can't Smile Without You' and accompanying himself.
 I do believe the dogs are smelling the turkey because I can see they are all eyeing it and licking their chops! This snap is fuzzy because a couple of dogs kept bumping into my leg!
 There will be sweets after they all get some turkey. Too bad they don't like cinnamon rolls.

Oh, hear comes Lola with some fresh baked bread and more dogs. Barky Manilow promises to sing 'Copacabana' especially for her!
 Sit back, relax and grab a biscuit or a cookie and listen to Barky Manilow as he entertains us.
Thanks for coming to Tang's party and we all want to wish you a happy Valentine's Day!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


 Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
She would merengue and do the cha-cha
And while she tried to be a star, Tony always tended bar
Across a crowded floor, they worked from 8 till 4
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?

At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the Copa....they fell in love

(Copa Copacabana)

His name was Rico, he wore a diamond
He was escorted to his chair, he saw Lola dancin' there
And when she finished, he called her over
But Rico went a bit too far, Tony sailed across the bar
And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two
There was blood and a single gun shot
But just who shot who?

At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the Copa....she lost her love

(Copa. . Copacabana)
(Copa Copacabana) (Copacabana, ahh ahh ahh ahh)
(Ahh ahh ahh ahh Copa Copacabana)
(Talking Havana have a banana)
(Music and passion...always the fash--shun)

Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl
But that was 30 years ago, when they used to have a show
Now it's a disco, but not for Lola
Still in the dress she used to wear, faded feathers in her hair
She sits there so refined, and drinks herself half-blind
She lost her youth and she lost her Tony
Now she's lost her mind!

At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the Copa....don't fall in love
