FEEL GOOD FRIDAY~!
U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords sang the folk-rock song “American Pie” over the weekend – and knew all the words..
Giffords, 40, is recovering from a gunshot wound to the head at TIRR Memorial Hermann in Houston, where her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, lives. She was one of 19 people shot Jan. 8 at a northwest-side supermarket as she held a meet-and-greet event. Six people died.
Giffords was shot in the left forehead and the bullet went clear through the left side of the brain, which typically controls right-side strength, sensation and speech.
Giffords’ medical team has been encouraging her to mouth the words to songs as part of an exercise known to rebuild the brain.
Oh yea!..Now that’s good news.

Okay….Who knows the lyrics?
Fess up y’all.
Stay strong Gabrielle…and keep singing.
