Lu is down sick this morning so it'll be a quiet day around here. Nothing serious, just feeling poorly. She'll be back on her feet soon I am sure. Too much cheering and support from yesterday no doubt. She's a trooper that one. I'll be cleaning guns and gear. I shoulda done it yesterday but, as I've often said, I'm pretty lazy :)
We're enjoying our last few days with The DO and the kids before they have to fly home on Thursday. The house always seems so big and empty after they leave.
I hope you all have a great day. A day full of joy and good companionship. A day of love and hope. May The Good Lord bless and keep you all my friends.
Something light and silly this morning.
Tell it to the locked-up trees, Cuckoo, bring your song here! Warrant, Act and Summons, please, For Spring to pass along here! Tell old Winter, if he doubt, Tell him squat and square -- a! Old Woman! Old Woman! Old Woman's let the Cuckoo out At Heffle Cuckoo Fair -- a! March has searched and April tried -- 'Tisn't long to May now. Not so far to Whitsuntide And Cuckoo's come to stay now! Hear the valiant fellow shout Down the orchard bare -- a! Old Woman! Old Woman! Old Woman's let the Cuckoo out At Heffle Cuckoo Fair -- a! When your heart is young and gay And the season rules it -- Work your works and play your play 'Fore the Autumn cools it! Kiss you turn and turn-about, But, my lad, beware -- a! Old Woman! Old Woman! Old Woman's let the Cuckoo out At Heffle Cuckoo Fair -- a!
