“So long, farewell, I hate to say good-bye”

“Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you”… I simply love this scene in “The Sound of Music” when the Von Trapp children had to sleep after an hour at the party in their home, and when the family with captain Von Trapp and Maria were about to escape in a car to go and “climb every mountain” after winning the singing contest. It pains me so much… to leave you all, my friends! Farewell to you all… only for tomorrow and on Friday! Hahaha! Yes, I will have my duty once again after almost 2 weeks of being stagnated here at home. It is an advantage though, because I gained a ‘ka-chokoran’, some people who I have some throwing ‘of punches’ here. You know who you are, and I am grateful and appreciative of your interaction with me. Raise the roof! I hope to be back every afternoon after my hospital work, and on Saturday until Wednesday. “Farewell to you my friends, we’ll see each other again”.

It's not really goodbye! We'll see you when you're available. Anyway, I also love sound of music. I grew up with it. It's what get me started loving musicals (the good ones). Enjoy your hospital work!

At first I thought, uh oh you're going to have people freaking out that your leaving mylot. Then I saw you were referencing the movie loved by many, especially my girls. Then I thought the carpet was pulled up into my face when you began talking of really leaving. Now that wasn't nice, but a cute way to say you'll be out of the picture while working. I saw on our profile it says Philippines, I don't know why I didn't see that earlier. What do you do for work and you should crop this picture to use as your avatar. You're prettier with the colors.

thanks, my friend.i had the same concern when i asked a lotter about his country of origin , asked him if he is a Filipino like me, and when he said India, i told him that India did not appear after his username. so, that is it. at least, i was, and am, not alone. the picture is already cropped my friend.

@ridingbet Oh, on the cropped image. The smaller one looks like you have a white scarf not a white jacket. The larger one allows more color to show up. I'll look at your larger avatar to see if it shows everything better.

@ridingbet I don't think we're talking about the same picture. The one you're using as your avatar has your hair different than the one you have on this post. This is the one I'm referring to, the one on your post.

@ridingbet no, it was not the house of von Trapp family. It was just a palace where they took the scene for that movie. Really? I didn't know about that. What kind of problem did you mean?

The sound of music is my all time favorite. I first watch it when I was a teenager. Then with my children as they were growing up and now with my grandchildren. It is a movie that people of all age and generation can appreciate.
