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!

    When my brother had come for a visit, we remembered the many songs that we used to sing together and sang them all. Barath plays the guitar and accompanies himself but this trip, we had to do without the guitar, as I had given it away.

    Glad my text came at such a good time! He plays it every morning about 7am, so if I’m not running late i think of you!

    You made me smile
    Reminds me of all the little songs
    That I sing with my 4 and 7 year old granddaughters.
    On their visits – we sing and dance…
    Good memories 🙂
