Yee-up, I Remember the Rains of ’42…

Sheriff Slimetrail comes a-runnin’ down the road, must’a been doin’ a mile an hour easy, tellin’ us to get to high ground. So I crawl on top of the grain silo, and Lucille gets on top of the outhouse, and we just wait it out singing old love songs…

    This is a terrific picture! I had to look twice before I realized the snailies weren’t real. Lovely photograph and sentiment!!

  6. I was raised on that movie with Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy. Every time we found one in a used VHS store, we’d buy it instantly.

  7. Oh, gosh. I got to play that song as a piano duet with my sixth-grade sweetheart at our piano recital. Sigh.

  8. Snails. On Acorns. It’s like a children’s storybook.

    How do you know they aren’t real?

  10. The picture looks authentic to me and the guy who took them has hundreds of equally beatiful on this site here:

  11. Lovely. Did you sing as well as play?

  12. I’ve only just realised that’s James Stewart riding next to Nelson Eddy.

    What a beautiful voice. Sincerely jealous.

  13. look real to me, too. and very very cute.

  14. True enough. If you’ve had enough of this winter, his pictures are a reminder that spring will always be near.

  15. Fabulous photo and love these snailies! When I walk around campus when it rains, I pick up the snails on the sidewalks and move them to the bushes and gardens so they don’t get stepped on. They are very cool little guys! (and girls)

  16. Great picture.
