How One Thing Leads To Another Or Just A Bowl Of Cherries

I bought some cherries, washed them, put them in a bowl and thought I'd take a picture.

I took this picture:

Then I thought I'd check the internet for some background and came up with these lyrics:
People are queer, they're always crowing, scrambling and rushing about
Why don't they stop someday, address themselves this way?
Why are we here? Where are we going? It's time that we found out
We're not here to stay; we're on a short holiday 
Life is just a bowl of cherries
Don't take it serious, it's too mysterious
You work, you save, you worry so
But you can't take your dough when you go, go, go 
So keep repeating it's the berries
The strongest oak must fall
The sweet things in life, to you were just loaned
So how can you lose what you've never owned? 
Life is just a bowl of cherries
So live and laugh at it all

And here is Judy Garland singing it: 


  1. Very clever photo! It made me laugh. I guess life IS just a bowl of cherries. Thanks for the music, too. My friends can blame (I mean "thank") you when I keep singing the song at dinner tonight!
