Ruth, the friendly shark has a look in his eyes that do not reassure.

Tony, the flying fish photos are so pretty with the unusual form and skyborne fish, its color, and the blue of the water make it enchanting.

OK, I give up, Dallas; you wrote, "This is the only version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" I like listening to. For very obvious reasons."

Care to take the time to help me understand your reasons?

                                          Flying Fish

On the road to Mandalay,
    Where the flyin'-fishes play,
    An' the dawn comes up like thunder outer China 'crost the Bay!

Tony and Dallas - those are great. Thank you for the Wizard of Oz music. Has anyone here seen the new Wizard of Oz movie?

Could it be Dallas the Phallus that you are a friend of Dorothy's? LOL

This is the only version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" I like listening to. For very obvious reasons. : ) 

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 31, 2013 at 2:11pm
Dallas, I am on the opposite end of the spectrum as far as the rainbow song. I do know what you mean, some songs just make a thud for me.
The Elephant Blog delights me; so many fine scenes and images of family. Thanks for the site.
