Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay, My, oh my, what a wonderful day! Plenty of sunshine heading my way Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay! Do you recognize this song from Walt Disney’s “Song of the South?” It expresses my emotions when I wake up, wake up to sunshine, and wake up knowing something good is going to happen. Our son is coming over after his morning chores to go for a nice, long walk with us. Of course, he will wear a mask to prevent us from getting the virus in case he’s a carrier. We will keep our social distance. But most of all, we will get to see each other and walk and talk. I’m itching to know how his date at his girlfriend’s house went last night and more about his business. We do talk every day, but with him, there’s always something to laugh about. ~Photo is part of our azalea hedge. What a wonderful day!~

Beautiful flowers. That's awesome your son will be over later this morning to walk and talk. Laughter is good medicine. Yes, I know the song. I was singing it as I read it.

Thanks! He probably won’t be here until afternoon. He deep cleans and does laundry every Sunday. I think he learned that from me in my teaching days. The song is still going through my mind.

@DianneN He learned good habits from his mama. Mine too, but it will be replaced soon. Church starts soon. Next week we will meet again as a congregation. They're doing two services so they can have the necessary social distancing.

@just4him What will be replaced soon? Sorry. That sounds good. Will you all be required to wear a mask? I heard the virus also spreads from singing, sneezing, and coughing, which always happens in large groups.

i am glad you get to see your son. I bet not seeing your grandkids as much has been hard.

@DocAndersen And I’m positive your mom is thrilled to see you! I know our kids love us and want to see us, but the time isn’t right for our New York family. We are thrilled to see our younger son, mask and all.

I don't blame him @DianneN it's been too long since the two of you have had the opportunity to actually see family. I'm curious, wouldn't your son have had to have covid at some point in order to be a carrier?

@rebelann We have been seeing him several times a week since we’ve been here. Carriers do not know if they are carriers. That’s the problem with this virus.

Oh, I thought that you have penned a song or rhyme by yourself! I hope that you enjoy your time with your son. It is good to meet up others as we sometimes get dull and feel lonely by ourselves.

Thanks! Our state was the last one to open, but everyone is still being careful. We know the virus is still out there. And no one knows who could be a carrier, which is the worst thing in my opinion. Is your area opened?

I just heard that flights are banned from Brazil to the US now due to the virus. I guess your son will have more time in Brazil.
