As I was looking at my spring snow pictures from this past week, this little ditty popped into my head ~
"It's springtime in the Rockies
and I'm full of mountain dew;
Can't even read my catalog's
the way I used to do..."
My Mom used to sing that quite often and there it was - bumping around in my pea-brain after all these years. I don't really even know...is it a part of a song, a poem maybe? Does anybody know?
My sister and niece, Stacey and Dawn, were here visiting this week and we talked about sayings and songs that we remembered from when we were kids. In the days when it was okay to carry your kids around in the back of the old pickup truck, we would sit back there and sing songs over and over again. Turns out that Stacey still remembers all the words to "One Tin Soldier" and I have "Seasons in the Sun" down. Neither one of us can remember much of "Billy, Don't Be a Hero" or "Wildfire". I think it was our older sister, Susan, who decided on our song choices, so maybe she remembers the other lyrics? Do you? And who sang "Billy, Don't Be a Hero" anyway? Anybody?
May you be blessed with old songs popping into your head today...Sit around the table and sing them with your sisters. You'll be glad you did!
