Life is a Bowl of Cherries  – lyrics by Lew Brown 1931.

Life is a bowl of cherries;
Don’t take it serious;
Life is too mysterious.
You work, you save, you worry so;
But you can’t take your dough when you go, go, go.
So keep repeating it’s the berries;
The strongest oak must fall.
The sweet things in life;
To you were just loaned.
So how can you loose what you never owned?
Life is just a bowl of cherries;
So live and laugh at it all.


Here is a link to Ben Vereen singing it.  It starts at about 0:57 .   I had to repost with a new link.

I am posting early – since a number of people just were at the Salon Competition  so they already know it (or a version of it)
A version of this (without the pits) just took 3rd place in the Lakewood Ranch Digital Photography Camera Club.  Hats off and Congratulations to fellow bloggers Mindy Towns for getting 1st place and Liz Cantarine for 2nd place.  I also want to give a thank you to Diane Broda for getting me the Canadian cherries so I didn’t have to wait until February when the Washington cherries would be in our stores.

So when doing your blog images – sometimes they can turn into ribbon winners.

Now that was an artist version using TOPAZ Impressions – Swirly lines  –   and here is the original.
