if I only had a...

It was during Thanksgiving week that I thought I heard this local shopper in a Helen, GA general store, singing...

I could wile away the hours
Conferrin' with the flowers
Consultin' with the rain
And my head I'd be scratchin'
While my thoughts were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain

I'd unravel any riddle
For any individ'le
In trouble or in pain

Oh, I would tell you why
The ocean's near the shore
I could think of things I never thunk before
And then I'd sit and think some more

I would not be just a nuffin'
My head all full of stuffin'
My heart all full of pain
I would dance and be merry
Life would be a ding-a-derry
If I only had a brain

Happy ST, y'all!

What a wonderful shot ... and the text fits so well.

Off subject, but I saw a cute Christmas ornament. One clear glass ball ... add some coarse salt, about six peppercorns and a tiny, orange cone (made of paper). What you have is a 'melted snowman'. ;D

@Judy aka L@dybug: Haha! I have one of those, which I purchased years ago in New Orleans. It's a melted water and pieces "snowglobe" called a "Louisiana snowman."
