Oh, Ya, it's Raining Again!

I looked at the lyrics at the classic "Supertramp" song after thinking about this blog and the rain today. I remember listening to that song when I was pretty young and singing my lungs out w/ my teenager sisters when we'd be out cruisin'. Yes I was a cruiser at a very young age, mostly asleep in the back seat while my fluffy, feathered-haired sisters would hang out on the "cruise." Eat your heart out Supertramp!! Just for memory lane...

Oh, it's raining again Oh no, my love's at an end. Oh no, it's raining again and you know it's hard to pretend. Oh no, it's raining again Too bad I'm losing a friend. Oh no, it's raining again Oh, will my heart never mend.
Didn't you just love singing those old songs, and now looking back you can't believe you'd sing those out loud, let alone now that you know what the lyrics actually mean!!!!!!!!! Yikes. The eighties/nineties stuff- ya, but the overall favorite of mine was oh course... Grease!! I know, most of my young adult life I really believed I was Sandy, and one day I'd turn that slick talking Rick into "Danny" w/ the letterman jacket and we'd fly in the love bug away forever and ever...
Wake up Bev!
Anyways, this blog was for all you Seattlians, because we enjoyed the parade in the rain. You'd be so proud, no umbrella for me, just a light-weight jacket w/ my hood- I was prepared. Today was Shelley Spud Day- they have a festival devoted to a tater! All the floats had to have something "spuddie" on them. My kids were on a float for singing. Lindsey thought she'd become Hannah Montana, and was all drama- She's so fun. She said it was the best parade she'd ever been in (since it's her first)- Well, Spuds or no spuds, I thought of my rainy weather girls and held them in my thoughts while it poured down, w/ a little thunder and lightnin'. So here's to Spud Day, and to you, rain-lovin girls!!! Cheers!







Can you guess who is loving the songs- Look right in the middle w/ the pink hood over her head- Isn't she sweet, it's soaking wet, but she doesn't give up...





The boy is on the back row w/ the black jacket on, with a smile on his face. "It's Spud Day mom, and it's what farming and this community is all about." That's my boy! "Hopelessly Devoted To You!"
