Green Eyes – My New Ditty

Photograph by Joni Caggiano (Ditty written and sung by Joni) – Subject my green eyed man – To hear Ditty click below

Hello and good morning to this beautiful community. To those of you who know me, you also know I like to sing a little. I follow some real artists, singers, songwriters, and folks who have and still do this professionally.  A little while ago, I posted a song called “Honey Bee,” I wrote and sung to you all for fun, and I got some kind feedback. So hope you enjoy this one as much as I did on Tuesday morning.

This little song was obviously not done in a studio, but the acoustics in my bathroom aren’t too bad.  I use basic voice memo on my MacBook and just the computer’s microphone. So remember, this is for the young girl who wanted to sing blues in a nightclub draped over a grand piano.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic day, sending my love, prayers, and appreciation to all of you.

  1. Wow this is the first time I heard you sing Joni..You have a strong, clear, on pitch, timeless voice.. You could be singing from any era. It takes a lot of poise and voice control to sing a cappella… and you did it so easily, as if you were sitting on the front porch.singing to the crickets.. I loved it and admire how you just let loose and made your ditty totally yours:)πŸ€—β€οΈπŸŒŸ

    1. Oh thank you Karima. You are such a sweetheart. Thank you very much for your beautiful comment about my voice. I truly just do it for fun. Our voices change or at least mine has partially from not getting used as much and also as I get older, but I still like to sing. Considering your expertise in what you do it is a big compliment as you spend so much time to put forth every post. I follow musicians and they are so talented, I am someone who just likes to have fun. We had a very special day yesterday and I was in a wonderful mood. Love you Karima, Joni xoxoxoxxo

  2. CHILLS. Your voice is so powerful. I needed this pick me up so much today. You are so talented in so many ways. Please keep sharing your treasures with all of us ❀️

    1. Oh Jill my dear friend. I am so glad this “Pick me up,” thank you. It sounds like perhaps I should give you a call, I hope everything is all right. I will call you a bit later, we are going to have lunch. Love you Jill – will talk soon xoxooxo Joni

    1. Thank you Jeff it is fun for me. Thank you for your kind comment. Just read your latest publication really beautiful Jeff. A raw honest look at emotions. Congratulations πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ hugs always, Joni

    1. Thank you Francisco. You are being extremely kind. I was in a great mood yesterday (Hum I wonder why) and I wrote this little Ditty for Scott. He too is excited. It is just for fun. You two have a blessed day. β€οΈπŸ€— love from us both

    1. Thank you Ken. It is something I do for fun. I write little ditties for my husband. There were other verses but I didn’t want to press my luck. My Honey Bee which had a link on this post is the better of the two I think. I appreciate your thoughtful comment. Sending you both my love. β€οΈπŸ€—

      1. Yeh, I enjoyed My Honey Bee. Definitely my fave! πŸ˜πŸ‘ Your husband is a lucky man though I’m sure he already knows that well!

      2. Oh thank you Ken, how kind of you. Glad you liked “Honey Bee,” my favorite also. Thank you for the compliment, we have our fights like everyone else who is passionate and that we are! We both appreciate and love each other. We have been married for 25 years, we are also best friends which is such a blessing. Thank you again for your kind words. Sending my love to you both. xoxoxxo

    1. Thank you how very kind of you to comment. It really is just for fun. By the way your story writing is really excellent. I am a poet but I know a great story when I read one. I don’t know if you are interested in publishing your work (a shorter story) but MasticadoresIndia, editor is Terveen Gill, they published only in English. She loves a great story. You may want to submit a story there and see what happens. I can’t promise anything of course but at least check her site out. MasticadoresUSA is also a site that publishes English only, although she publishes mostly poetry. They have an audience of over 700,000. It is a great on-line magazine. Good luck. I will certainly read more of your work. Blessings to you and your loved ones. β€οΈπŸ€—

      1. Yes..i do follow her on here and social media. I will submit something to Terveen soon. Just gotta find the time. I have several projects I’m working on, and sometimes, my day job just owns ALL of me. But I’ll hit her up soon with something.

      2. Sounds great, I am grateful I retired way early. I am blessed to have been able to do so. I honestly don’t think I could do both. Bless you. Hugs πŸ€— Joni

    1. Oh thank you Ingrid that is very thoughtful of you. I do this for fun and still like to make up little songs now and then about my husband. Big compliment from you as I love your reciting voice, it is a very delicate voice, beautiful. Have a wonderful day. Hugs πŸ€— and love ❀️ Joni

    1. Thanks Tim. It is a lot of fun for me. I appreciate your kind comment. By the way I can’t remember if I congratulated you for being one of the finalists in Gabriela’s contest. I wasn’t surprised to see you there at all but I was excited. Hope things are going well. We are watching the new series of Narcos and Scott was trying to explain where everyone is in relationship to your beautiful land. Sending love to you two and big hugs. πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ€—β€οΈ

    1. Thank you that is very kind. I do that for fun sometimes and I write the songs about my husband whose green eye I used. I appreciate your thoughtful words Haoyan. Thank you. Oh I wonder if Ditty might make your new list. I was so excited when Petrichor made your list. Sending lots of love and hugs your way. Joni β€οΈπŸ€—πŸŒΉπŸ₯°

    1. You are very kind Terveen. I don’t have the voice I once did. Occasionally I write a song about my husband, and he does have very green eyes. I talked him in to being my model. I don’t think I could have ever handled that lifestyle. You have to have lots of energy and there are so many amazing musicians today. I follow some very talented musicians on line. Sending hugs, πŸ€—Joni

      1. Well that is one of the sweetest compliments I have had in a long time. Thank you Terveen, that is very kind. Have a blessed day. β€οΈπŸ€—

  3. Oh! Joni, I loved this song so much. In my mind, I could picture you singing it to your sweet hubby! You have a soft yet sultry voice. Thanks for your bravery. I sing Karaoke but don’t know if I could allow a recording. My favorite is Friends in low places, and anything Patsy Cline.

  4. Love you too! Maybe someday I will get the courage to do it. I feel like I am Patsy Cline when I sing it. I have never sung in front of anyone until last year. Shirl talked me into it, and people clapped, of course, it was at Karaoke in our park, so it was friendly. I am trying to get my podcasts together. Too bad, we don’t have enough to keep us busy. LOL β€πŸ‘€β€β€πŸ˜

    1. I know right. This community is very kind. You sing if you want to. As we get older we can be braver. I bet you sound great. Crazy is my favorite. Stay safe sweetie. πŸ€—β€οΈπŸŒΉπŸ₯°πŸ™

      1. My pleasure beautiful Button. Sending a soft wave of clouds ☁️ to fly overhead tonight dropping beautiful memories and cherished childhood moments. An evening of magically gifted dancing flowers with cloud puffs and whispers just for you. Love ❀️ honeybun

      1. Thank you so much Tim. Have a blessed day my friend. So glad I met you in our community. Hugs and love to you and your honey bee. Hope she had a great weekend birthday. Hugs πŸ€— Joni

    1. You are a sweetheart Tiffany. Yes there was a time when I worked as a nurse part time close to home so I could see my daughter when she got off of school and another job at a restaurant and I did a little singing with the band. I don’t have the voice for it anymore. So I do it for fun. Hope things are going well for you. Your work looks great and you are working with so many different varieties of paint and style. I love it. Doing more shows also which is great. Sending you great big hugs and love sweetie. β€οΈπŸ€—πŸŒΉπŸ₯°πŸ’

  5. Bravo! You certainly sing better than I do, Joni. All I can do any longer is croak (LOL). The acoustics in the bathroom here are no help at all. Love you, A. <3 <3 <3

    1. That is hilariously funny Anna. My voice isn’t what it use to be. Anna I hope you know you are in our prayers, I have asked others to pray as well. God work’s miracles everyday. I am one of them. We have this 91 year old woman that goes to our church. She jumps around like a teenagers. When she was baptized in the Jordan River many years ago she had no more pain. She recently was diagnosed with breast cancer said she would pray about it. Now the doctors say she is fine. No treatment. I am praying for a miracle. I love you sweet Anna. I won’t give up, she is such a fighter. God bless you all. You are in my heart. πŸ€—β€οΈπŸŒΉπŸŒΉπŸŒΉ

      1. Anna so nice to hear from you dear friend. You and your dear family have been in our prayers. I have other’s who prayer often, praying for your family too. We leave on the 18th very early in am but by five that same day I can be reached. Please call me anytime. I love you and you are in my heart as is Retha and her children. Love you bunches. πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ₯°πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸŒ·πŸ’•πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹
