#FridayFive The King & I Wish a Happy Birthday

 
It’s time for the #FridayFive again.  Today, I’m also helping my niece celebrate her 41st birthday. When she was just a baby, she fell in love with a music box that played Elvis Presley’s “Love Me Tender”  Whenever we were in the car, she would cry unless we were listening to Elvis Presley. To this day, Elvis is still her favorite musician.

#FridayFive In Like a Lion

They say that a typical March comes roaring in like a Lion and leaves like a lamb.  I thought it would be a great way to welcome March with a Friday Five of songs with Lion in the title. Next week, I’ve got different take on ‘Lion’ that hopefully you’ll enjoy as well.
