Song

I still think of my sister Nancy as the little redheaded girl darting about. My other sister Cindy wrote a song when she was 7 years old. It was called "Pilly, Pilly, Polly, Poo". It went like this: "Oh, Pilly Pilly Polly Poo Oh Pilly Pilly Polly Poo When the answer is spread I suppose I'll be dead Said Pilly Pilly Polly Poo Verse 2 When I'm in the grave
I'll be with Dave Verse 3 When I'm in heaven I'll be 97 " Did you pick up the Death theme? All this to a very jaunty and rousing tune,and we still sing it. A bit morbid for a 7 year old but Cindy was a deep thinker.

Nancy is VERY sweet ... not so sure about Cindy though };-} There were three of us also, sounds like we played the same rolls in the right order!

This is delightful! I love the colors that show up her red hair, and i love the litling notes that follow along a path.

This is a great picture and I like the song, too. I'm probably going to end up singing it while making dinner earning yet more of 'those' looks from my family.

What a sweet little song and dance! I love your simple lines. Is that "Illustrator"?

Thanks so much for the edifying comments! And yes, it's Illustrator with a dash of PaintshopPro thrown in for good measure.
