We are family.

I got all my sisters with me (or maybe brothers.) This group of cuties and their mom weren’t too afraid of me as I sat by the side of the lake. They would bunch up, for all the world like a pre-game huddle, then waddle cutely to and fro a bit before huddling up again. Not sure what the pep talk was, but it kept them coming back for more.

Did you know that the Pointer Sisters didn’t do the original “We Are Family?” The Sledge Sisters, four sisters named…you guessed it… Sledge sang it and it became their hit song. This part is particularly appropriate:

Everyone can see we’re together
As we walk on by
(And!) and we fly just like birds of a feather

but you might enjoy the whole song to get your Tuesday off to a great start.

    That song will always bring back memories of the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates – theme song, all the way to the World Series.

    Adore this song! Sister Sledge was the first I heard it. till The Pointer Sisters are amazing, too!
    Nice to hear this song again, thank you!

    Wow. This post certainly dredged up a long forgotten memory. I saw Sister Sledge in concert shortly after I graduated from university and moved to Toronto.

    It was one of few concerts I’ve ever been to (I have issues with crowds and loud noises). The concert was held in an elegant ballroom of the Royal York Hotel here in Toronto with an audience of only a few hundred people. I was there with a friend on a press pass. It was a spectacular show, we had great seats, and I’ve never felt so out of my element!! This was an elegant affair with a ‘mature’ crowd and I felt like such an unsophisticated country bumpkin!

    I’ve loved this song ever since.
