An Owl’s Crossing Favorite song:

If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops

Oh what a rain it would be!

Standing outside with my mouth open wide

Uh Uh Uh Uh Uh Uh Uh Uh Uh Uh

If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops

Oh what a rain it would be!

Hoot of the Month

What goes up when the rain comes down?
