Thursday Theme Song hard to do

© Photo by Richard Schear

Raking up is hard to do...our eldest grandson, Kayen, several years ago, but he still has the same great smile! He raked up this pile of leaves, then hid in it until his dad came along, and jumped up to surprise him. As Neil Sedaka would say, "Down, Dooby-do. Down! Down!" 
Down dooby-do down down
Dig myself in the leaves down down—
Don't take the lawn away from me,
Don't you leaf me here in mischief, please.
If you go, then I'll go, too,
'Cause raking up is hard to do.

I beg of you don't say goodbye
Let me give this joke another try
Come on, Dad, let me start anew
'Cause raking up is hard to do

Oh I love the poem and sang it as I read it. And what a CUTIE your grandson is/was at that stage. Obviously a well-adjusted young man today too. Thanks for sharing. Jo

That is a great photo! Gotta love that big grin. Great play on the words Kay. The next time I'm raking leaves I have a feeling this is going to pop into my head.

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Cleverness....thru and thru!! I love how you can always come up with the play on words/lyrics.

And your photo shares? Fantastic.

What a Great post! The picture and poem are adorable. Oh the fun you can have playing in the leaves. My son used to love hiding in them, most of the time you could still see part of him, but he loved trying to scare you as you went by.

That was good for several smiles. Your grandson is a cutie.

After we moved here, there were tons of packing boxes that needed to be broken down for storage. Calico and I started singing "breaking up is hard to do", whenever we started flattening them.
