Re: A Thousand Stars In The Sky By Len Backus

released in 1960 or atleast pretty close, remember it well although I was only in 1st grade.

My hats off to you and yours for being together for so long and staying happily married. Known mine for 42 years and married 39. Thanks for sharing

A thousand stars in the sky like the stars in your eyes
They say to me that therell never be
No other love like you-oo for me-e-e

A thousand stars in the sky make me realize
You are the one love that Ill adore
Tell me you love me
Tell me youre mine once more (once more, once mo-o-ore)

Each night I count the stars in the sky
Hoping that you arent telling me lies
Youre with me tonight, Im captured by your charms
Oh, pretty baby, wont you hold me in your arms?

A thousand stars in the sky make me realize
You are the one love that Ill adore
Tell me you love me
Tell me youre mine once more (once more, once mo-o-ore)

Each night I count the stars in the sky
Hoping that you arent telling me lies
Youre with me tonight, Im captured by your charms
Oh, pretty baby, wont you hold me in your arms?

A thousand stars in the sky make me realize
You are the one love that Ill adore
Tell me you love me
Tell me youre mine once mo-o-re (I-I-Im yours)

I love the solitary time I spend in the woods or the mountains. It gives me time to think of loved ones and all the other important things in life to be thankful for.

Re: A Thousand Stars In The Sky By Len Backus

I think anyone who has ever visited this site and seen your photography would agree that you have an eye for it. I would venture to guess that your heart is in it too wich is probably why your tallent is so easily recognisable.
As hunters and lovers of the outdoors its sometimes easier to put on a tough front. The ''I can do anything and go anywhere'',and ''no challenge is too great to see whats on the other side of the mountain'' attitude only half describes the heart of an outdoorsman. Im glad to see that there are some other folks that are almost floored by the greatness surrounding you in the mountains, and how that feeling can be related in some way to those most important to you. ie; wife/kids etc.
I have never been accused of being ''eloquent'', but you pretty-well nailed what many of us have felt, but have no words to describe, when we take the time to take it all in. The memories, and feelings start to flood in. Thanks for sharing.
P.S. I loved the picture,as much as the write up. The ''horsehead'' rock formation centered at the bottom of the photo (in the water) just adds to the whole thing! GREAT JOB on the photo Len.
