Sing A Rainbow

This picture was taken outside my back door a few weeks ago. It was one of those days where the sun was shining, and it was raining at the same time. Just knew there had to be a rainbow!! If you look carefully, you can even see a double rainbow. This had me thinking about, and remembering, my sweet granddaughter who was just here for a month. Every day she wanted to sing...and we had quite an extensive list of songs to sing! And ALWAYS there was at least one song about a rainbow. "Red, orange, yellow, green and blue. Don't forget there's purple, too! Rainbow colors for me and you!" was her favorite. I'd sing her several other rainbow songs, but for her, there was only one...HERS!! "Over the Rainbow", "Sing A Rainbow", "All the Colors of the Rainbow"...none of these would do! And no matter how hard I tried to teach her another one, she would sing loudly over the top of me to drown out the incorrect rainbow song!! LOL!!! "No, Grandma, it goes like this..."!!!

She also sang the cutest version of "Baa Baa Black Sheep". Her version went like this..."Baa baa black sheep, heavy heavy world..."!!!

Lions, and Tigers, and Cheetos! Oh My!!

Have you seen these new Cheetos? They are huge! They are shown, at left, next to regular Ritz crackers and string cheese. They remind me of golf balls. I don't know what Chester Cheetah was thinking, but my sweet little granddaughter had a hard time taking a bite out of one of those monster snacks. However, she did manage to eat them all!!
