Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: My Favorite Things, Chorus

When Tule Fog hits the Woodlake Valley, the best thing to do is stay home until visibility is better. By ten o’clock this morning the fog had dissipated some, and I wanted to do something fun.  I grabbed my camera and walked around the yard with no intentions, but to have fun in the fog.

Black BirdsI found this black bird on the spoon handle waiting for the four-and nineteen others to join him to bake in the pie. Little does he know what awaits him. We learned this song in nursery school, and sang it to the next generation.  Do you remember it? I found two tunes. Which did you learn?

Sing a song of sixpence,

A pocket full of rye.

Four and twenty blackbirds,

Baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened,
The birds began to sing;
Wasn’t that a dainty dish,
To set before the king?
The king was in his counting house,
Counting out his money;
The queen was in the parlour,
Eating bread and honey.
The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose.
They sent for the king’s doctor,
who sewed it on again;
He sewed it on so neatly,
the seam was never seen.
Bird Encounter
This doggie scarecrow that guards our garden didn’t fare so well with his nose.The birds chewed his ear, too. Invisible seams didn’t happen. Maybe the doctor couldn’t see in the fog, or maybe he, like the brave pup, was a little rusty. Hard to tell. 
For a more adult chorus to illustrate these pictures try Leonard Cohen’s “Bird on a Wire.”

    1. Thanks, Irene. It’s amazing how much extra time it takes to listen to and add music, but it does at so much to the post. Thanks for stopping by. Are you working on a new book, or is there a lot of follow-up on your last one? 🙂

        1. Waiting for the proofs on Images of America: Woodlake, and working on Girls on Fire. Taking a break right now. It’s conference time for the organization I’m in and Magazine time for another one, tax time at home. I hope your legal issues are nothing serious. That’s a little scary. I can’t imagine anything about your book that would cause you legal issues. Who ever suspects something like that would happen?

        1. You are building a following, for sure. I started this as an experiment to see if I wanted to write, and even though I’ve got a book in the works and one at the publisher, this is so rewarding, it keeps me going when I get discouraged writing.

    1. I’m with you. I didn’t even know there was another version until now. Amazing what you learn when you write! 🙂 Hope you are doing well. Thanks for reading and commenting. It means a lot. 🙂
