    Post And then I don't feel so bad…..

    Julie Andrews Turning 78 soon- this is hysterical!

    To commemorate her birthday, actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed was 'My Favorite Things' from the legendary movie 'Sound Of Music'. Here are the lyrics she used:

    (Sing It!) - If you sing it, it’s especially hysterical!!!

    Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
    Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
    Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
    These are a few of my favorite things.

    Cadillac’s and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
    Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
    Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
    These are a few of my favorite things.

    When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
    When the knees go bad,
    I simply remember my favorite things,
    And then I don't feel so bad.

    Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
    No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
    Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
    These are a few of my favorite things.

    Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin',
    Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
    And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
    When we remember our favorite things.

    When the joints ache, When the hips break,
    When the eyes grow dim,
    Then I remember the great life I've had,
    And then I don't feel so bad.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>> > >>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>
    (Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores. Please share Ms. Andrews' clever wit and humor with others who would appreciate it!!!

    That made my day.
    Quilting is therapy. And I can use all the therapy I can get.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Yikes. Thought I'd go look to see if I could find the actual performance on Youtube and found this instead:
    http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/mus...drews_aarp.htm

    I did find it sung by someone else on Youtube:

    It's really funny, but I would have preferred a Julie Andrews performance!

    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    Some folks just gotta know, you know? I like it no matter who sang it, as long as it wasn't me. I have a tin ear. None of you have been bad enough to deserve to hear me try to sing. Lol!
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    I figured it would not have been her singing, she suffered a botched throat operation and has not been able to really sing since. Very sad, she had such a beautiful voice.
