Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Years ago when "e-toys" was in business, I fell in love with the music on their commercial and when I found out that the artist was Israel Kamakawiwo Ole', I immediately bought his CD. It is on my top ten favorite list! I really like this You-tube video:

Jackie, I love that song too and all of Izzie's music. So sad he died so young. Did you see Jason on American Idol sing this song? It was wonderful too.

enjoyed reading your blog... nice writing about your mom...and it does help I know. Rainbow is also one of my favs too. Sorry it took so long to get to it... been out of town then working ungodly hours to catch up..

check out Lisa's blog... she gets her writing skills from her dad :-)

the title comes from the joke about the female brags about all her husband gives her and her friend just says "well, how nice" I know you remember it...

keep posting

I miss her soooo much too. That was a beautiful poem ock. I've never paid much attention to the song by that artist. Richard said it is on the Regions Bank commercials. That was great! Miss you & Love you.
