Travis lays out some guidelines for this meme and they go like this:

1. Grab the banner, make your post title Five on Friday, and be sure to link back here.

2. Go to to make your play list of five songs. Choose a particular theme to share with us. You can simply post the play list, or you can add a little summary about what you are sharing.

3. I don't know how to make a specific linky, so be sure to leave me a comment to let me know that you participated.

4. No tags, but feel free to invite your friends to play along if they need a post topic on a Friday.

This weeks set is dedicated to the man who put this whole meme together, Mr. Travis.

This past week, he and his Lady, Pam had to send their cat Mr. Tucker across the Rainbow Bridge. I know how terribly this made them feel, but I also know that he and Pam did everything to make Mr. Tucker's last months the best they could be.

Travis did a heart-warming memorial post for the one and only Mr., Tucker which you can find on his blog here.

It is also the week you can count on Travis taking Thursday and Friday off EVERY YEAR, as he settles in and watches the BIG DANCE, MARCH MADNESS, THE NCAA MEN'S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT.

So, with all that in mind, I decided to put together a set of songs for you Travis. Now, I wanted the last song to be "One Shining Moment", but is is nowhere to be found on

Hope you enjoy

  2. That's a very nice tribute. But, "One Shining Moment" not being available is probably for the best. ;-)

  3. Travis Cody Says:
  4. Thank you Sir.

  5. JAY: I kinda like the Teddy Pendegrass version

    TRAVIS: My pleasure

  6. Stop making me cry at work...!

  7. Unknown Says:
  8. I would rather be a dog than a cat...

  9. Linda Says:
  10. Excellent choices for Travis this week; hopefully the March Madness will take his mind off the loss of Mr. Tucker just a little bit for a little while.

  11. Coco Says:
  12. Interesting choices and a nice tribute for Mr. Tucker.

  13. Never heard "Everybody Wants To Be A Cat" before. Wonderful song.

  14. j Says:
  15. I love the Disney Aristocats version of Ev'ry body wants to be a cat. Great idea to include that song in a set for Travis.

    Vinny, I cried when I read about Mr. Tucker because I know how painful it must be for Pam and Travis. Isn't it amazing that tears could be shed over a cat that I didn't know, who belonged to a man that I have never met? It's one of the blessings of blogging. I'm not sure if you have met Pam and Travis either, but I'm sure you understand what I mean in this loooong comment :)

    Have a great weekend!

  16. JULIA: Sowry

    PHFRANKIE: But today it is about a cat

    COCO: "Interesting" hummmmm

    JAMIE: From The Aristocats from Disney

    JENNIFER: Thanks Jennifer. I have never met them, but have known Travis for some 6 years now, so Mr Tucker has been a friend that long also.

    Enjoy your weekend

  17. Polly Says:
  18. A wonderful tribute set. I had only heard the 'Aristocats' version of 'Everybody Wants to Be A Cat'. I didn't even know there was any other way to hear it.

  20. That was very sweet of you, Bond.
