Dancing in the Leaves

Auntie Bridgett dancing in the leaves

Dear Liza,

(Another silly song. The original is “Singing in the Rain)

I’m singing in the leaves,

just singing in the leaves,

It’s finally cool and I’m wearing long sleeves.

The fat happy clouds,

Are up in the sky,img_0618.jpg

Just waiting for raindrops to plop in my eye.

The purple smell ofIMG_0848.jpg grapes

And sweet Suzette crepes,

Make all of dear Portland a charming landscape

I’ll walk as I please

Through the fresh, chilly breeze

All of a sudden…

I’m dancing and singing in the leaves!

A Song for Fun

Dear Liza,

Sunsets

Your Mommy or Daddy can teach you the tune for this silly re-write. The Song is called “My Favorite Things.”

(Read the captions!)

First Verse:

IMG_6868.jpg
And artists
IMG_7804.jpg
And baseball with Pickles
IMG_8103.jpg
Beaches with grandchildren, giggles and tickles
img_77502.jpg
Kittens in fl’wer pots
img_81352.jpg
And wrecks by the sea

These are the things Portland’s given to me!

Second Verse:

IMG_7826.jpg
Art found on sidewalks and up on a tower
IMG_7667
Hearing the voices of love’s greatest power
IMG_6818.jpg
Old friends and new friends

e

IMG_8239.jpg
And pinball for fun

All of these just since the summer’s begun!

Bridge:

Ghosts and mystery!

Creepy History!

Yummy food and wine….
img_7842.jpg
I’m up to my eyeballs in Portland, my friends,
IMG_7243.jpg
And I want to say…
IMG_8233.jpg
It’s fine!

Love,

Grandma Judy
