Love is in da Blog 2023: day 3

Here’s one I remember well but the reason behind it is not what you think.

Courtesy WIKI (extract)
A plea for love and peace similar to those recorded by Sly & the Family Stone in the late 1960s, the lyrics of “Stoned Love” were a plea for the people of the world to end conflict and animosity between each other, specifically the Vietnam War. Writer Kenny Thomas chose the term “stone love” to define the concept of an unchanging bond between one another. The same phrase appeared more than sixteen years later in Kool & the Gang’s title “Stone Love” and in a slight variant two years later in The Stylistics’ title “I’m Stone in Love with You”

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
