Favorite Things

Julie Andrews turns 69.
To commemorate her birthday, 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 lyrics she used.

(Sing It! - If you sing it, it's especially hysterical!!!)

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.

Cadillacs 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 pain, 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!

(Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores.


And now, it's time for something funny from Donald Rumsfeld ...

when I was a kid, we had the Christmas albums (yea, vinyl) that my dad got when he bought a set of Firestone Tires. They were Julie Andrews and some orchestra doing all the traditional Christmas classics. I would give ANYTHING to find these recordings. To me, they are Christmas. dAAve, thanks for the memories... (I know, that's Dean Martin)

p.s. I have the Julie Andrews Christmas cd that I think he's speaking of if he wants to contact me. It's one of my favorites.

Happy Bday Ms. Andrews.

Carol Channing had a birthday last week, too! 83rd, I think...

They should a Thoroughly Modern Millie party together!

And serve raspberries...
