my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?

Oops! There Goes Another RubberTree Plant!

This one goes out to all you cats and kittens in the audience:

remember, happiness is just around the corner! There a silver lining to every cloud! A stitch in time saves nine! Measure twice, cut once! Better late than never! The devil can cite scripture for his purpose! Better safe than sorry! Don't hide your light under a bushel! Feed a cold, starve a fever! He who laughs last, laughs best! Carpe diem!!!

I KNOW you know what I mean!


Just what makes that little ole ant
Think he'll move that rubber tree plant?
Anyone knows an ant can't
Move a rubber tree plant

{But he's got hi-i-igh hopes, he's got hi-i-igh hopes}
{He's got high apple pi-i-ie-in-the-sk-y-y hopes}

So, any time you're gettin' low,
'stead of lettin' go,
just remember that ant

Oops, there goes another rubber tree plant
(Oops, there goes another rubber tree plant)
{Oops, there goes another rubber tree plant}

When troubles call and your back's to the wall
There a lot to be learned/ that wall could fall

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he'd punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram scram
He kept buttin' that dam

{'Cause he had hi-i-igh hopes, he had hi-i-igh hopes}
{He had high apple pi-i-ie-in-the-sk-y-y hopes}

So, any time your feelin' bad,
'stead of feelin' sad,
just remember that ram

Oops, there goes a billion-kilowatt dam
(Oops, there goes a billion-kilowatt dam)
{Oops, there goes a billion-kilowatt dam }

A problem's just a toy balloon,
they'll be bursted soon
They're just bound to go pop

{Oops, there goes another problem ker-plop}
(Oops, there goes another problem ker-plop)
{Oops, there goes another problem ker-plop}

And a BIG shoutout to Bob!

Today's fragrance: L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse Aux Papillons, palest sweet whiteflowers cut with linden, with a deep curtsey to Victoria.

ROFL! The acorn doesn't fall far from the tree. Always look on the bright side of life. Nothing to fear but fear itself.

Thanks for the smile! XOXO

I love that song, I sing it in the shower yes I do - that and would you like to swing on a star, carry moonbeams home in a jar and be better off than you are or would you rather be a mule. And all the monkeys aren't in the zoo, everyday you see quite a few, so you see it's all up to you, you could be better than you are, you could be swinging on a star
