You Re-Decorated My Life!

Yeah, please read the previous caption as well to figure out just where my mind was at here!

Well, as if you didn't know, I was stuck with Kenny Rogers songs in my head due to yesterday's post, when I went looking for a picture that would inspire a caption. When I saw this one, I heard the title and thought "This is it! Why not? Doesn't everyone enjoy a good Kenny Rogers inspired caption? It's almost a trope by this point in time! 2019 .. the year of the Kenny Rogers TG caption!"

Not quite, but I just went with it, and since I didn't know the words, only that blurt of the title in the chorus, wrote out what I thought would work.  I do think I overwrote it a bit, and it lost steam by the end. The sad part is that if I had looked at the words, or at least the first verse and then the chorus, the caption might have come out completely different, and perhaps made a better presentation.

All my life was a paper, Once plain, pure and white.
Till you moved with your pen, changin' moods now and then, Till the balance was right.
Then you added some music, Every note was in place.
And anybody could see all the changes in me by the look on my face.

And you decorated my life.
Created a world, Where dreams are a part.
And you decorated my life.
By paintin' your love all over my heart.
You decorated my life.

Oh well. Perhaps I'll do even more Kenny Rogers captions soon! At some point, maybe they'll be as many as there are bench captions. Who knew he was such a fount of inspiration for TG stories? And that isn't even getting into his duet with Dolly Parton, which was written by the Bee Gees.

I'm thinking that "Coward of the County" and "The Gambler" would be good starting points. Maybe even, "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)" Feel free to use any of these for your own captions, and I'll include a link or highlight them in a post! And also, comment down below as this is another blog exclusive!


  1. I don't know, I like it just as it is. Subtle, gradual, and downright cozy . . . with a few surprises . . . and a lovely final statement with which it close it out.

    1. I second that, which doesn't mean that a different outcome wouldn't make a great cap too.

      Well, if not his duet with Dolly, than maybe one of his duets with Dottie.

  2. I guess I"m just going through a "not as happy about these captions as I should be" jag. Thanks for enjoying them!
