Rainbow connection, pink ribbon and piney

- This is one of my favorite songs sung by Sarah McLachlan (originally sung by Kermit the Frog), and I love how my iPod (on shuffle) produced it at the end of my workout yesterday as I was slowing down at the end to finish with a stretch.

- A pink ribbon, no doubt from a weekend party, floats on a sudden breeze across the park and lands by the side of the creek.

- The smell of pine in the air from a fallen pine tree.

Happy Solstice, Happy Summer!

I have 2 accounts on Ebay, and on one of them I just sell rainbow items, mainly to the gay market. :)

I love the Rainbow Connection! It's a wonderful song. I used to know how to play it on the piano, around 20 years ago.

I love S.M.'s version - just as much as Kermit's!

I also love it when she sings that Blackbird song by The Beatles.

happygirl -

I adore it.

Joe -

I didn't know that. The Rainbow Connection song is just a kids song - originally from The Muppet Movie from 1973.

lg -

(((HUGS back))) friend. Thank you - I'm excited, too. Kind of.

Sparkling Red -

How lovely - I'll bet you could still play it.

Wendy -

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Cloudia -

Thank you. :)

No putty ribbon

The air was

I play that one too... n taught it to Jannie in comments once... Learned from Kermie n my old guitar partner in Teen-hood Emily.
I think rainbows are for everyone! Once wrote a tune called "Unicorns n Rainbows"

I would've gone after the ribbon!
I think Gin smells like pine needles...
