Happy first working Thursday

I tear whenever I listen to this song


EDELWEISS
From the Sound of Music
(Rodgers / Hammerstein)



Edelweiss, Edelweiss,
Every morning you greet me,
Small and White,
Clean and bright
You look happy to meet me..

Blossoms of snow may you bloom and grow,
Bloom and grow forever

Edelweiss Edelweiss
Bless my home land forever




Now comes the Kuwaiti version



Arfaj, Arfaj,

Every morning you greet me,
Small and grey,
Dusty and withered
You look thirsty to meet me..

Blossoms of dust may you bloom and grow,
Bloom and grow forever

Arfaj, Arfaj,
Bless my home land forever


or

Khalal, khalal
Every Augustyou greet me,
Small and plump,
Yellow and bright
You look edible to meet me..

Blossoms of desert may you bloom and grow,
Bloom and grow forever

Khalal, Khalal
Bless my home land forever

I'm not embarrassed to say that on our last trip to Salzberg we took the Sound of Music bus tour and enjoyed it too.

Growing up, I thought Liesl was the prettiest girl ever.

i am not embarrassed either to say that i enjoyed it too. we were two only in the car so he showed us fontrapps real residence, not the one by the lake. the guide also told us that the family didn't climb the mountains to swiss, but took a train to Italy, then UK, then the US. even the garden room in which liesl (she is pretty indeed) danced with her boyfriend was a bit far from the house! maybe you already know that info :)


Judy
