What a wonderful world . . .


I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.

I wish I had the time to embed the music to this song for you, but I don't. I am packin' my bags, gettin' ready to fly fly fly a-way. I'm off to snuggle me up some grand babies! Wahoo! But you deserve a little fun too . . . so you just sit yourself back, click here, and close your little eyes while you listen mah man Satchmo sing one of my all time favorite songs just for you. Sweetie pie, you are in for a treat.

Oh yeah.

Mine too! In fact, just last week I made myself a new cd and put this song last -- the final glory to a great cd with favorite songs. Heather, do you remember that Chelsea used to sing this song -- knew all the words, when she was about 2?

I absolutely love this song, and Louis Armstrong!!

Check out this rendition of it by Brudda Iz (Israel Kamkawiwo'ole)...

Shelly, I can just imagine cute little 2 year-old Chelsea singing that song! What a happy memory for your family!

Hi Annie- My sister got married to this song and my daughter Chelsea wants to use it someday (probably could use a boyfriend first). Hope you're full of beautiful snuggles.
Love, Terry
