Sing While You Slave

I've often said that I can enjoy doing just about anything as long as I have some good music to listen to. This theory is often either proved right or wrong when I have to stay late at work to get stuff done for the next day. There's just something fun about turning the stereo up extremely loud while doing work you do on a regular basis without having to worry about customers coming in. This was the case tonight. Grandpa used to tell me about this guy he used to work with (working on the railroad?) who always used to sing the song "You Are My Sunshine" to himself & the man always seemed happy. Pretty good advice, if you ask me.

A bit of trivia that I just learned the other day--the original picture that your posted one parodies is "American Gothic". I always thought that it was a farmer and his wife, but it's actually a farmer and his daughter.

MmMmMmMmMm--me humming "You are my sunshine"! Thanks Dad for a happy start to my morning!

I'm still amazed at how you know the song title, the artist, and the album title of all these songs! Do you know all the lyrics as well. Shall I picture you singing along with the music?
