FGF: Yodel-ay-heeeeeeee

I’m back to where I look forward to Fridays and it sho do feel good. I hope you feel good this Friday.

Humor me here…I LOVE this song.  I can’t help it.  It’s on my Ipod with the incomparable Mary Martin rendering it, but, alas…no You Tube video could I find of her singing it so  I suppose the adorable Lennon Sisters, though dressed ridiculously here, are just cuter than bugs in a rug and dang if them girls didn’t nail that harmony!

And while I was hunting down the Lonely Goatherd, oh my sweet precious Lord Jesus…I found this…

I about wet my pants laughing over this one. Mr. Welk called it a “modern spiritual.” Heh. It was spiritual, alright.

Natasha Richardson

I was hoping and praying that we would follow Natasha Richardson’s miraculous recovery from her head injury on a ski slope in Canada. I was hoping that maybe the lack of details on her condition this morning meant that it natasha1wasn’t as bad as I was thinking. I mean, beautiful 45 year old, Tony Award winning actresses like Natasha Richardson, with sons near around the age of my own, aren’t supposed to die in their prime.  Right???

I can’t help but think about that scene from Love, Actually where Liam Neeson, who is now Natasha’s widower, is delivering the eulogy at his wife’s funeral. Who would have ever thought? (Couldn’t find a clip on You Tube of it.  It’s wonderful)

Unbelievable…
