You Are My Sunshine.
Boy! Was it a beautiful sunshiny day after a morning of thick fog and pear burning. According to the weatherman another very cold spell is heading our way so we decided to hit the back roads and enjoy the day. Wonder of wonders we found a road we had not traveled on or even heard of. The name of the road started with a U and was four letters but it wasn't Ugly. Pretty big oak trees and houses scattered few and far between. Got me to thinking. It would be pretty to be able to view wild life and have peace and quiet. On the other hand you would have to remember to buy everything when you went shopping. Too far to run to WalMart if you didn't have the proper supplies for a recipe or if you needed emergency products. John and I use WalMart as our social event and it happens several times a week. If we need it or want it, go get it. Visit with people we know, catch up on the news. We lived in the country until I was in third grade and I remember it being lonely for a kid, as my sister was four years younger and couldn't be turned loose outside the yard where I played. Some nice person made me a tall high rope swing. I can remember pumping with my feet and legs until I was swinging as high as I could go and singing "You Are My Sunshine" as loud as I could. No one around so no matter I couldn't carry a tune.
