My Favourite Things

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

To commemorate her birthday , actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed was 'My Favorite Things' from the legendary movie 'Sound Of Music'. Here are the lyrics she used:



(Sing It!) - If you sing it, its especially hysterical!!!

Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
When the knees go bad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin',
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
When we remember our favorite things.

When the joints ache, When the hips break,
When the eyes grow dim,
Then I remember the great life I've had,
And then I don't feel so bad.

    Happy New Year, Jules....! Special Lady!!!!!

Yes....dogs are all that and more. Lucy is an extension of my heart, my sense of humor - my love.

The longer we're together ---- the more we become 'joined at the hip' --- and I wouldn't have it any other way, I grew up with dogs -- have loved them my whole life. Had cats during my working years - and grew to love them and their inscrutable ways..... And now, to have Lucy - when I have all the time I have to spend with her - is an unexpected gift.....
Give all yours an extra hug and thanks for ........ being you!!

Big Hugs,
