Early on Wednesday Morning I had a text message from my eldest niece.  It read:

Every morning Chris Evans plays Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah at 7a.m.  It reminds me of you. 🙂

Chris Evans hosts the weekday BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show

I used to sing Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah to and with Barbara when she was a little girl. When we went for a walk in the park or to the village, we held hands on the homeward journey and skipped along singing this song to our hearts content.

I had forgotten.  What a memory she awoke and just at the right time.  I was humming it all morning and it was still in my head as I was in surgery having my eye sorted!

Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah it was a wonderful Day!
