Old Smokey

While driving home from the quilt show yesterday, I looked up at the snow capped mountains and a song popped in my head.

This the song...



Mmm... You can't tell me spaghetti doesn't sound delicious right now.

122/365

Anyway, the version above is the only one I know.... but apparently it is a parody of a "On top of Old Smokey" a song by The Weavers in 1951. (I think our family for whatever reason started The Spaghetti song with "On top of Old Smokey." It seems we were a bit confused... then again maybe I can't remember right... Or maybe I just never knew the words!)

Hah, It seems as though I have gotten a bit sidetracked on this post. My point is --> LOOK! The mountains have SNOW on them!!!

Sorry the pictures suck. I was in the car ;-) and OMG that song is going to be stuck in my head forever.

  1. The quilt show looks like a lot of fun.
    'On Top of Spagetti' is one of the songs we used to sing in the bus on the way to school camps! I only remembered the beginning of it though!!
    Enjoy your snow from a distance.

  2. Erika, the mountains look great... I am really jealous I don't live where you are ... NJ doesn't have any mountains worth photographing. -Natacha-
