Somewhere, Over the Rainbow. . .

This is an amazing version of that song. I used to HATE it when Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz sang it, but this man, Israel Kamakawiwo`ole, does so well and I love the ukulele. I got this off UTube. Anyway I love it.

This makes me happy to hear this, and for some reason I have been singing this all week. I don't know what spurred the memory, but I love listening to it.
We had a wonderful Sunday as well. My sister and her husband are home from Africa and almost all of her children and grandchildren came, from several states, and most of my children, except the one also came. We were missing a few spouses as well, and they were missed. . .

I played with cute grandchildren, visited with nieces and nephews (some I haven't seen for years), and grand nieces and nephews. Plus seeing almost all my sweet children. It was a house full, and we had to drive 5 hours round trip, but it was all worth while. I got some great pictures, which I will embed into this blog as well.

Pixiestylist cut lots of hair this weekend. She always brings her scissors, clipper and apron, in case someone asks her to. She never expects pay when she does this, just knows someone will ask, so she takes her time off and does hair. What an angel.
For some reason this happy song makes me want to sing. I hope it has that effect on you as well.
Have a wonderful Labor Day.

Hi Annie,
A nice clip. I liked the pictures that were played along with the song. Sweet Dreams Friend.

Yup, that's Iz for sure! Isn't it a beautiful arrangement? I much prefer it to the original.

What a beautiful family you have. It is very interesting to recognize extended family that I met oh so many years ago.
