Playground In My Mind - Clint Holmes

I remember this song was popular when we first moved to Canada (lyrics below video). One of those sunshiny, happy songs from the early seventies...



When this old world gets me down
And there's no love to be found
I close my eyes and soon I find
I'm in a playground in my mind
Where the children laugh and the children play
And we sing a song all day

"My name is Michael, I got a nickel
I got a nickel, shiny and new
I'm gonna buy me all kinds of candy
That's what I'm gonna do"

Oh the wonders that I find
In the playground in my mind
In a world that used to be
Close your eyes and follow me
Where the children laugh and the children play
And we sing a song all day

"My girl is Cindy
When we get married, we're gonna have a baby or two
We're gonna let them visit their grandma
That's what we're gonna do"

"My name is Cindy
When we get married, were gonna have a baby or two
We're gonna let them vist their grandma
That's what we're gonna do"

See the little children
Living in a world that I left behind
Happy little children
In the playground in my mind

See the little children
See how they're playing so happy
In the playground in my mind

Pretty picture of snow fall. Makes me (sort of) wish I lived back in cold climes. Don't give up carbs--they aren't luxuries, but rather essential building blocks of the body. The other items are not mandatory for survival.

Actually, I will be having some carbs still, just smaller amounts of them for awhile. It's not so much a no-carb diet as it is a low carb or, as they say, a "smart-carb" diet...

Thanks for your concern! :)
