A few of my favorite things

I have always loved Julie Andrews and I know most of us grew up with The Sound of Music. Someone sent me this email the other day and I really liked it. I thought you might like it although none of us are really old enough to understand what in the world she is talking about!


To commemorate her 69th birthday on October 1, 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 actual lyrics she used:


Maalox 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, and 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 pains, 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.


Don't forget to come back next Friday for another great Fantasy Friday story!!

PK, well you know how old I am, I just hope that Julie isn't quite that bad, I know I'm not, yet.
I'm sure that you all had a marvellous Thanksgiving.
Love and warm hugs,
Paul.

I can remember my dad had to get the tickets in advance for the opening of the movie.

Remember after you shop all day, when you get home Nick has to massage your feet and lower cheeks this evening hehehe.

*hugs and grins*

Oh, that's too funny! It's hard to believe she's 69... I'll have to read that to Paul (snicker!). It might be just enough to get some fun spanking action started today! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Lilly

There's no way Julie Andrews is that old... why just a few years back I saw Sound of music in the theater.

Oh, alright so that was more than a few years but geeze... where DOES the time go!!

I LOVE this version of the song though. Wish I'd heard her sing it.

Hugs~

Thanksgiving was great Paul, and you have to know in all our minds you are about 40 and extremely HOT!

David,
We drove 2 hours to see the movie because when it first came out it was only released in theaters with wide screens. I loved it!!

I do not go anywhere near a store the Friday after Thanksgiving!! Although I would love to have a foot/butt massage anytime!!

Lilly,
Glad you liked it! I hope some fun spanking came from it!!!

Twin,
You are right it does seem like only a few years ago and yes it would be fun to hear her sing it!
