My dad often has a song running through his head first thing in the morning and sings it for us. Today it was the Animal Fair:
“I went to the animal fair,
The birds and the beasts were there.
The big baboon by the light of the moon was combing his auburn hair.
The monkey, he got drunk,
And sat on the elephant’s trunk.
The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees, and that was the end of the monk.
After breakfast we went to my sister’s farm which is a little over an hour away. We got to see and pet her 2 week old chicks while she held them. They were super cute. We saw horses, cows, and deer along the way. It was a long day for my parents, but a great day. Perhaps it wasn’t an entire animal fair, but the birds and the beasts were there.
I Found God today in a funny song that set the tone for the day.
