‘I feel like I just performed in a Broadway musical- well uh, maybe it was more like one of those Mayberry “musicales” starring Barney Fife singing wildly off key.
It was such a beautiful morning that the spirit moved me to get back into my walking program. I hitched up Lucky and Rebel and off we sailed, buoyed by the cooler temperatures which I never expected on July 1.
It was early, and no one was out, so I began humming “Oh What A Beautiful Morning” from the musical “Oklahoma.” Before long I was singing out loud the few lyrics I could remember (about the corn being high as an elephants eye).
Suddenly, I heard someone behind me breathing hard and singing along in a beautiful baritone. His running partner chimed in almost as badly off key as myself. But, hey, the day was looking up and it had barely begun. I was so energized I came home and weeded my pottager garden and picked some basil to make pesto.
What a way to launch a new month and the second half of the still New Year. Some days are “perfectly ordinary” and I don’t want to miss a minute. Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit – that’s what my college roommate used to say on the first of every month….said it was guaranteed to bring good luck.
