24-JUL-2010 LynnH


Sugar Land TX

Taken through my kitchen window.
Mockingbirds love red fruits, so I put out apples and tomatos now and then.
"Act Naturally" is a song written by Johnny Russell and Voni Morrison, originally recorded by Buck Owens and the Buckaroos.
The Beatles covered the song in 1965 on their album Help!(in the UK)and as the B-side of the "Yesterday" single in the U.S.
The Beatles' version is sung by Ringo Starr. Stephen Erlewine of Allmusic called it "an ideal showcase for Ringo's amiable vocals."

You are quite the philosopher, and of course you are right.

Yep, I had to pay a price to get into the gardens yesterday and you have to pay for the food to feed the fish too. I still love this shot!
