It's a Beautiful Mornin'

He Who Doesn't Do Dishes called me this morning as I was getting ready to go to work. He said I had to step out and see the sunrise. I'm sure glad I did. I hope you enjoy the photo. For some reason it brought to mind the lyrics of this song by The Young Rascals, who are most certainly The Old Rascals by now.

It's a beautiful mornin', Ahhh,
I think I'll go outside a while,
An jus' smile.
Just take in some clean fresh air, boy!
Ain't no sense in stayin' inside
If the weather's fine an' you got the time.
It's your chance to wake up and plan another brand new day.
Either way,
It's a beautiful mornin', Ahhh,
Each bird keeps singin' his own song.
So long!
I've got to be on my way, now.
Ain't no fun just hangin' around,
I've got to cover ground, you couldn't keep me down.
It just ain't no good if the sun shines
When you're still inside,
Shouldn't hide, still inside, shouldn't hide,
Ahhhh..Oh! (shouldn't hide) Ah, ah, Oh.....(Do, do, Waaa) (Do, do, Waaa)
There will be children with robins and flowers;
Sunshine caresses each new waking hour.
Seems to me that the people keep seeing
More and more each day, gotta say, lead the way,
It's okay, Wednesday, Thursday, it's okay,
(Ahhh) Monday, Wednesday, Friday, weekday, Ah, Ah, Ohhh.(Do, do, Waaa)Ah, Ah, Oh, Oh, (Do, Do - Aaaa)
Wooooo oo oo oh, oh, oh, Ah wo, do, waa
Ohhhhhhh.....Oh, Oh, Oh, .....

That’s a glorious sun rise!

That definitely IS a beautiful sunrise, Laura...as is that old song by the Rascals.


Laurie said...

Nick, I sparkled all day just thinking about it.

WW, I'm glad you like it. I brought my camera to work hoping that the sunset would be equally spectacular, but I guess I'm only allotted one fantastic sun event per day.

Cathy said...

Oh wow! That's worth getting out of bed for. Someday you're going to tell us about 'he who does not do dishes - I'm thinking my husband has a twin in Montana :0D

Aren't those lyrics fun?
" . . children with robins and flowers " - Still many many weeks away for us - but the thought is nice.

Wolf said...

I love seeing your pictures on your blogs mom. That looks realy pretty. I'm going to have to start updating my blog with some of the picks ive been taking lately myself, i'm starting to get a collection.

Squirl said...

Wow, that's beautiful!

Ur-spo said...

lovely indeed.
Was the rest of the day just as good?

Laurie said...

Cathy, So THAT'S where HWDDD's brother lives. I had wondered.

Wolf (aka son), I hope you do start posting more often. Your camera takes awesome pictures and I'd love to see more of your adventures.

Squirl, What a way to start the day, eh?

Ur-spo, It was a fabulous day in every single way! Thanks for asking. :-)

Anvilcloud said...

He could almost be forgiven for not doing the dishes -- at least for one day.

Laurie said...

AC, I don't mind doing dishes, but don't tell anyone, ok? ;-)

jen said...

that is SO beautiful. and the song is perfect.

Laurie said...

Jen, I'm so old, I remember when that song was on the radio.

Thailand Gal said...

I remember when that song was on the radio, too. Beautiful picture! :) There's nothing like a sunrise.



MsLittlePea said...

Hey what about Good Day, Sunsine by the Beatles!! Such a beautiful picture.

Laurie said...

Chani, I'm glad you like the photo. I have so much fun taking pictures, it's nice knowing someone besides me likes looking at them.

Mslittlepea, That is another excellent song! Next time I see an amazing sunrise, that song will come to mind, I'm sure. Thanks!

KC said...

That's a postcard picture. I haven't seen a sky like that in a long time. Gorgeous.

Laurie said...

KC, Thanks. It was the start of a wonderful day. :-)

Beautiful photo, love the song! Thanks for sharing...hope your trip goes well.

Laurie said...

Thanks Threecollie. I'm here in beautiful Absarokee. The dial-up internet is so slow right now I can't post the pictures I took on my way here, but I'll try again later.
