Yup, I know what you mean!
Love your photos and interpretation of the challenge. Fun song! Never heard it.
I have a lot of Public Television songs in my memory. Also camp songs. They tend to surface at odd times these days.
I’m glad to know another soul who “gets me”. 🙂
Yeah, camp songs. wow.
Thanks again, Scilla. Your posts help me appreciate nature and connect back to myself and my place in it. And that Muppet song! – Oh, for a red wild wig and zany green pyjamas!
Saturday’s morning paper has just thudded on my driveway … Australians will vote in their federal election today … Will we get more of the same ? … or opposites? What a gift it is to start the day, early and peacefully … with a little ‘hip’ beat in the background.
I’m glad you enjoyed your visit to my blog, Meg! Thanks! All the best in the elections today: best peace, best practices, best public service. 🙂
