A few of my favorite things

Raindrops on tree limbs and standard size poodles
Cat hairs in coffee with warm snickerdoodles
2AB bicones all lined up on strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Bright fuzzy mohair and crazy eyelash yarns
Crochet hooks, long books and old antique sale barns
Holiday songbooks, the favorites we sing
These are a few of my favorite things

When the wind blows, when the clouds scud, when I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad

Phone calls from close friends and photos from others
Packets from OZ and emails from my brothers
Sister who calls me a delightful ding
These are a few of my favorite things

Hugs from my Pooh Bear and kisses from Tippy
Headbonks from Puffin and Love Rubs from Callie
Hellos from Al Bird who thinks he can sing
These are a few of my favorite things

When a pet dies, when my job goes, when I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad

Long texts from Wabbit and phone calls from Puddy
Hikes to the ridges that get my boots muddy
Views from our front deck from Winter to Spring
These are a few of my favorite things.

Hot Jazz and Bluegrass and Indie and Old Rock
French Horn, Romantic Classical and Baroque
long music interludes by Dennis Brain
These are a few of my favorite things

When the tooth aches, when the knee hurts, when I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad

SUGMAD MAHANTA the ECK and all the Whole
Travels in Inner Planes, knowing I'm Soul
Spiritual Exercises give me Wings
These are a few of my favorite things.......

When the flesh fails, and the mind goes, and I'm feeling lost
I simply remember those last fav'rite things, and then I feel home at last!


With creative nod to Julie Andrews....thanks for all your singing. I miss it.
