Summertime by catch---22 Summertime by catch---22
Summertime,
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Oh, Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry

One of these mornings
You're going to rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky...

billie holiday 1936

This shot makes me want to go romping through that green green grass and have a picnic under the tree. :)

Summer in Colorado is wonderful! At least there, you can go under a shade tree and get cooled off. Here in Alabama, the shade is the same temp as being out in the sun because of the humidity. It's ungodly! :-O

What a wonderfully pleasing picture. I :love: all that green, and the sunshine all over the grasses, and the clouds trying to promise a bit of cool mist. I'm very very fond of green in this way. I can't live in desert, I have to have green.

And I was playing that song on piano and singing my lungs out when I was, gah, as young as 10. It was a mainstay warm up and whenever friends or company were in the mood for a sing. But I didn't jazz it up like Billie. Well, yeah, sometimes I put a lot of swing to it. Mostly though, sad, miserable, soulful blues -- even at 10. :)

And I see a dove with wings wide, in flight, heading this way -- or an angel hovering -- over the right side of the tree? Sorry... 'tis da way I is. :blush:

Wish I could hear you play it in your way. But, yes, I know -- you've said, never gonna happen. :( I myself might one day, though. Maybe maybe. :)

Hey, how come I have to but you don't? Not fair, I say. Not fair at all! *sad pouty look* I have no doubt your version (on any instrument) would be far far better than mine, now anyways. Back in the day, I played sweetly, but no virtuoso -- I never had the chance, really. I do believe I *could* have been good enough one day to at least (at the very least) get a job at a piano bar. I even thought that mighta been a fun career, part-time perhaps. Then again, all the drunks spilling drinks all over me; worse, throwing up. Methinks meneeds to rethinks this a bit.

But, really, wish you would reconsider. I know you won't, but wish you would.

Anyhow, if I get that far, even in its simplicity, I really might. We'll see.

AhHA so you STILL PLAY the piano! Dang it, I want to hear it! You have no idea how jazzed up I get about this. It's just one of my things. Maybe because when I was training and playing piano and clarinet (and Wurlitzer and any of the other odds and ends) I never had anyone to play with me. Friends and family would sit and sing when in mood. But no one to really understand or appreciate or duet. I just love listening to people I know (even people I only know through internet). And because mine is so in disuse for so long, it's going to take major overhaul to bring it back. So more reason I get jazzed up for everyone else.

Hey, if you got 30 bucks, you can't be all that bad.

Oh well... I don't push... things always have to happen more naturally and only if the person really wants.

So... will leave it at that. Just know your music would be more than welcomed by me, even with finger errors and screw-ups in general. I'm extremely understanding of these things.

*off soapbox*
