..I've got some land in Florida.

WOO HOO!!..It's Friday!
Pay no attention to your calendars kids,I'm here to tell you right to your face that it's Friday,and I'm getting my Friday Jukebox Video posted precisely on time,..because it's Friday.

Now that that's settled..

Today's regularly scheduled,and clearly brought to you on Friday video was inspired by my dear friend Rainey's post about the 'circle of life'.
It's a sensitive,thoughtful,and spot on observance of the joys and angst of watching our children grow.
Along the way,she quoted a line from one of my all-time favorite songs!

"Turn around and she's two, turn around and she's four..."

What began as the soundtrack for a Kodak camera commercial back in 1960,went on to become a hugely popular hit by those talented young kids,'Dick and Dee-Dee'.

Here they are,performing that song on American Bandstand.
I especially like the interview portion,where Mr. Clark poses the question to Dick the younger,'Do you have any difficulty having a female partner in the act?'
To which Dee-Dee demures,'Well,I take a little longer to get ready,but I try to hurry now'..

Boy,..those were the days.

That Rainey is one smart cookie!
You know,..for a girl.

'Turn Around'..

EDIT:..Now seems like a good time to post those pix of my own very Grandson,..Little Jackson!
..It's been all of ten months.

I'm outta here..

somehow i'm too young to recognize that song. i like being young.

so i got that going for me too.

i've been staring at jackson for 3 minutes, he's trying to tell me something but i'm too thick to get it. he looks real smart.

I have always loved that song - it's so true. I swear I just had my babies and I'm watching them morph into men.

Sometimes, it's so good to just giggle. I giggled. I have to go read Rainey, but first let me tickle that little Jackson. What a doll and one day, what a good ... doll. Do babies grow faster these days?

He looks much happier now that they're letting him wear clothes and not poking him with things.

It's way cool that you found that video. You have mad YouTube skillz.

Cute kid...I think his expression says, "Dude, where are the car keys?"
