"Leave Me A Note"

3:22 p.m. - 2005-05-13

Who sang that song?

Someone mentioned Pippy Longstocking in their entry today and it got me to thinking ...

Does anyone remember a one-hit-wonder from the early 70’s that was a young teenage girl? The only song I recall her recording was called “Listen to the Rain” (or something like that). The only lyrics I can remember go something like this:

Listen to the rain
To the pitter patter
Down my window pane
Something …
Something …. trill …. trill ….. trill ….

Oh won’t you listen the to rain . . . . trill … trill … trill

That’s all I can remember and it’s been stuck in my head for many many years.

Almost every time it rains … that song comes to my mind. My feeble aging mind.

Tomorrow is my hubby’s birthday, and unlike last year, I will not be surprising him with a mini get away. He doesn’t handle those to well. We will, however, be celebrating his day with his parents. They’ll treat him right. I have found a book he’d like - something about the Dead Sea Scrolls and translating them. And today I ordered a DVD movie called Pi. Well actually it’s not a spelled word so much as a mathematical symbol. A rather odd movie, but my T loved it. He’s not such an easy person to buy for. You can only buy so much chocolate for one man. And for those of you who are prepared to leave me a scathing note telling me that there is no such thing as too much chocolate – safe your fingers – I don’t want to hear about it. I personally don’t see the attraction to chocolate. Be happy with that.

It’s a rainy Friday, and I want to go home and curl up on the couch and watch videos until my eye’s bleed. OK … maybe not that long, but you get my drift.

Happy weekend everyone - LJ
