Are these starting to get kinda old? I don’t know. Part of me says I need to make better use of my time and work on the training course that I started so that I can start building the foundation to bring Together We Can Heal to reach more people. And yet, the other part of me still likes the distraction and the smiles.
So here’s another day of some videos that I hope will make you smile and maybe even encourage you to be creative and come up with something of your own. Now wouldn’t that be cool!! My Fledglings posting their own videos in the comments.
Still my favorites right now are these virtual choirs!
My mother’s favorite song, especially the version sang by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole. This one has IZ’s flair added with such a beautiful melody in the background.
My Favorite Things
Ok…before you watch this next video. Brief Story. Whenever I hear this song I think of my step-father.
We were on our way to Yosemite National Park to attend my cousin’s wedding. I was in the back seat and my parents were arguing. You see, they were lost. And my father, even though he was behind the steering wheel, always blamed my mother when he got lost. He had no sense of direction and it was her job to always navigate, which she was not natural at.
“Turn that way.”
“That WAY!” A little louder and pointing in the direction she wanted him to go. After the turn, “You needed to go the other direction.”
“I can’t see hand motions! LEFT or RIGHT!! Damn it!!”
He would get so angry. Wonder how he’d do with Google Maps, especially when that first came out and got people incredibly lost.
So, here’s my Mom trying to read a map when she has no idea what it means. My step-father rips the map out of her hands and throws it in the back seat. “You’re the pilot. You know how to read maps. Where are we?” Funny, how one believes just because someone else flies an airplane, that they have this uncanny, superhero ability to know where they are on the ground, after sitting in the backseat for three hours, just by looking at a map.
Needless to say, I was able to figure it out (yes superhero here!). “About 50 miles ago we needed to make a right, not a left. Probably the fastest way now is to continue on this road and come in from the East since we’ve already gone around most of the North side of the park.”
Oh, was my father pissed off! When he was mad and behind the wheel of a car, he showed everyone just how angry he was. He accelerated, tires screeching around every corner (remember we’re in curvy mountain roads). At that moment in time, this song came on the tape deck of my “Musical Tape” (yes I’m that old – at least it wasn’t an 8-track) that was playing in the car’s tape deck.
“When the dog bits, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad. I simply remember my favorite things and then I don’t feel so baaaaad.” I was laughing in the back seat at the irony and every time I hear this song, I hear screeching tires and can’t stop smiling.
I like the coughing instead of the thunder. I’m thinking this is going to be the next few years in an airplane when people start flying again. Coughing and sneezing, some people are going to freak out.
Speaking of sneezing and coughing…
“Everybody matters to me.”
I think I like the muppet version of this song better.
He looked like he had a ton of fun doing this.
I have to admit, I wanted to start dancing. I think it’s more the Lady Gaga song than this version. I think it’s time to blast some music!
Penn Charles dressed up as girl with his dad cracked me up. I can see they had fun with this video.
