I wonder if that song was written in honor of tropical storm Bonnie who plans on raining on our Memorial Day parades tomorrow. Lucky for us, we aren’t planning on attending any parades tomorrow nor are we barbecuing.
When I was a kid, I didn’t know that word was Bonnie. I thought it was body. “Bring back, bring back, bring back my body to me…” That was my version of the song. I’m not sure how my body got away from me and traveled over the ocean but I figured as a kid, there were so many other things I didn’t understand so this must just be one of those things.
In any case, I think we can deal with the inconvenience of a little Bonnie generated rain on our three day weekend especially as we remember those who gave their lives for us.
Happy Memorial Day!
