    Grooving, On A Sunday Afternoon

    The Supremes

    I keep playing this one song over and over lately in the car by them: You keep me hangin' on. Love it!!!! My kids father keeps calling me and I refuse to answer his calls--so this song fits. I'm so over and done with him. It feels good to finally be free!!!!
