"Shimmy, Shimmy..."

...Aspen shake and quake, no doubt...
Shimmy, Shimmy, golden leaves...shake it all about!"
~Me...inspired by Little Anthony & the Imperials :)

“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
~Mahatma Gandhi

“Today is life-the only life you are sure of.
Make the most of today. Get interested in something.
Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby.
Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you.
Live today with gusto.”
~Dale Carnegie

“You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.”
~Indira Gandhi

"Well I said shake baby shake.
I said shake baby shake.
I said shake it baby shake it,
I said shake baby shake.
Come on over
Whole lot of shakin' goin' on ..."
~Jerry Lee Lewis

Happy Shakin' ...Every Day Counts!

You reminded me of a bumper sticker I saw that said "What if the hokey pokey IS what it's all about?!"

I like the Indira Gandhi quote the best.
Better catch the look of those leaves before they shake right off the trees. I think winter is coming early! Not that it gets too cold where you live or even for me but it did get down to 46 degrees last night and we didn't quite get to 60 today so I'm shaking with cold up here in Kingman. I am NOT used to this.

Your leaves look wonderful as usual. Just got my color fix.

Divine! I well remember the quivering gold roadsides from my life out west!!

Such beautiful leaves - I have a soft spot for leaves too. One day I'll see shaking aspens for myself, but until thenm yours are beautiful!

I love your shimmying leaves. I always like to go with gusto. Isn't that a fall word? Gusto. Like the fall winds that bring in winter. Gussssssto.
