It's Raining, It's Pouring......

It's Raining
It's Pouring
The Ole Man is snoring
Went to bed bumped his head
Couldn't get up in the morning!

"The words of the Nursery Rhyme, "It's raining, it's pouring" have been suggested by Jerry Jacobson. Little is known about the origins of the song, but we believe it originated in England (well known for it's rainy weather!) The rhyme is often sang by children when they could not go out to play. The lyrics suited the ritual chants tht children love........."

Some credit this sing song to Mother Goose also...

Rhymes and history

Mother Goose

I am not gonna complain about rain since last summer we had NONE.

But does anyone know where I can find a canoe/boat cheap?

With a roof?

And a motor? I don't paddle well....

So I can get to work without getting soaked?

It might have started here but it sure doesn't apply any more. We're almost at a drought emergency situation.

I'm sorry, I don't. But I saw them build a boat out of duct tape on Mythbusters. You could try that.

I've got a new canoe up on the rafters in my shed, it's been in the water once for ten minutes... that was before I fell off the Yamaha and wrecked my shoulder, now I cant paddle either.

I hear ya. I have had enough rain and snow this month to last me a good long time. Thankfully today we got to go out and play. Good luck in your canoe search.=)
