If April showers bring May flowers,

. . . what exactly is it that March showers do? Because the rain rain rain is coming down down down in rushing, rising riv'lets.

And it has me alternating between singing the song I just mentioned from Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day and singing Don't Let the Rain Come Down by the Serendipity Singers (I believe I may have the original album on vinyl at home, having inherited many of my parents' records - although my brother cherry-picked some titles, including the Civil War Songs collection I kinda wanted, so I'm not certain).

You may have your pick of songs:






Kiva - loans that change lives

We have frequent strong winds due to the large lake just north of town. On those days while walking to lunch/car/what have you, I find myself humming "Blustery Day."

Everything's better with a "tiddly pom" in it.

Nice! Don't forget "Singing in the Rain," too. Patoot is a big fan of Gene's song and dance classic. ;)

I like them fine when I don't have to go out - or when there aren't too many all together.

Funny story - one of the preschoolers my mother teaches, one rainy day, began to sing to her, "You're just a little black raincloud..." His horrified father grabbed him and tried to shush him -- weird man, thinking his three year old was making some sort of a racial remark. (HELLO!?) Rainy days just mean Pooh for some. Or Pooh sticks, anyway...

But I have to love the funky sixties folk band sound. I can somehow imagine you singing this, cha-chaing through the kitchen.

Laughing at your mom's story
I do not cha-cha to The Serendipity Singers. I do 60's white-girl stupid bopping moves to them, as befits their origins. (I am also quite fond of their version of the song "Mud", which begins "Mud, mud, glorious mud/nothing quite like it for soothing the blood . . . ")

Funny story back: When I was little, I had a T-shirt with a large picture of Tigger on the front of it. My Granpop commented on the tiger, and I corrected him and said Tigger and promptly got in trouble because he thought I'd made a racial slur. WtP for the WIN!

Hello, the adults just need to get out more. Or stay in more. With videos, obviously.
