It is raining softly here as well. We had a power outage last night for several hours. I don't have any idea what caused the outage, but we were fully prepared because some time ago Carol bought several stick-on LED lights and I put them all over the house and even saved a couple to carry around with us.
I made myself a sandwich after the lights went out and then went to bed. The lights came back on at one thirty this morning. I woke just enough to turn off my bedside lamp and turn on my bi-pap. I slept very well the rest of the night, waking this morning at about eleven.
I remember that song and many others from childhood. Of course, driving school bus kept many of them familiar to me. Recently I was singing, (unconsciously) "Whispering Hope" which I learned when I was in elementary school. We sang it in two parts way back then. I still love that song. Another one I recently brought to mind is "John Jacob Jingleheimer Smith" I sang that one to my caregiver while we were going to my doctor's appointment. She'd never heard it before.
I also told her about my mischievious streak. When I was at Camp Deertrails, Girl Scout Camp, I stole the counselor's Big Ben alarm clock. I put it on a board and put a metal dish pan on top. Then I threw the Triangle the counselors used to wake us every morning. I set that clock to go off at three in the morning. When it went off it woke the entire camp. What fun!!!
Did you ever commit such a prank? What was the outcome?
