Thanks, Judy

Bluebirds can't fly over the rainbow, And I'll tell you something more; The only avian species that can Is the Andean Condor. A chased rainbow is never caught. Somehow, a rainbow's never "here". The closer you get to the pot o'gold, The rainbow moves or even disappears. If I could fly over the rainbow, My heart would sing; But I can't fly over the rainbow, 'Cause I've got no damn wings. Yes, we're all seeking rainbows. In that, there's nothing wrong; But every day I can say, "I'm glad Judy Garland sang the song."

Great poem about Liza's mother. She had a beautiful voice, and left us too soon.
