Here Comes the Susie Snowflake
There is another snow storm predicted for our area later this week. This is no news for the people to the west of this area since they will be getting it first. The forecasters warn us that predicting springtime storms is difficult so we may get freezing rain and sleet mixed in. I’d rather have snow. I’m tired of my own kvetching about the snow so I’m trying to be peppy about it. I’m of the generation of Captain Kangaroo with all his stories, songs, skits, and laughter. “I learned that from Mr. Greenjeans,” or “I heard that on Captain Kangaroo” was something often said by me and others of my generation. One of the songs is Susie Snowflake tap, tap, tapping at my window pane.
Not many people seem to remember the cartoon from the show. I don’t remember the cartoon but I remember the song vividly. Still less remember that it was sung by Rosemary Clooney, one of the sisters in the movie White Christmas. Danny Kaye was in that movie, a very clever and talented performer. One of his best movie skits was in the movie Court Jester, where he did a spectacular tongue twister about the Chalice with the Palace.
I’m cheered up. Nothing like a song and a laugh along with a trip to memory lane to make me more cheerful. Another thing that helps is a tarot reading. Below is a tarot spread based on the expression that no two snowflakes are alike to remind us that not only are no two snowflakes alike but no two snowstorms are identical.
