The only Monkee song he sang, was one he wrote for the band, Papa Gene's Blues, from the first Monkee album. I got emotional when everyone sang along. I was eleven years old when the Monkees first came on TV. I was a crazy fan, my room covered in posters and pictures from magazines like Tiger Beat and 16 magazine. I was a member of an exclusive Monkee club. (Four girls in grade school who sang Monkee songs after lunch behind the church.) I was Micky Dolenz, but grew to appreciate Mike and his music the most as I grew older.
I made a pillow for Mike featuring this photo he posted on his Facebook page. Mike and his Mom back in Texas when he was young.
Then, when we changed cars I forgot it in our car. I will mail it to him, a token of appreciation for over 50 years of great music and fun.
Who's that handsome guy taking in some Sunday sunshine?
Still have to harvest my herbs.
The boys giving their Dad a lift.
Thanks for stopping by and for your kindness.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
