I wonder if that title triggered a little tune in your head, yet another 'ear worm' for you to enjoy this weekend.

This is a re-run of a post from May, 2010
When we visited Cambridge, England with our son and granddaughter, we were determined to go punting, so even the persistent rain couldn't deter us!
You can see by the punts at dock how many people weren't punting that day! Someone had sense enough to come in out of the rain, but ...
Yes, it was cold and rainy, but still so much fun to be on a punt with an expert punter! He just happened to be from Michigan. Michigan?? I knew something was up when he spoke and sounded just like us! He didn't even attempt to fake a British accent as he punted us along 'the backs,' past the buildings that make up Cambridge University.
The Bridge of Sighs, built as a replica of the Venetian Bridge of Sighs. Our punter said that the students crossing this bridge to take their final exams was reminiscent of the Venetian convicts whose sighs could be heard as they crossed the bridge and got their last view of the outside world before imprisonment.
The Anchor, a fun pub at the other end of our punt. The Anchor serves the best fish and chips ever!
King's College Chapel with accompanying swan. This is not cut and paste. That cute little swan posed in the grasses long enough for me to get his photo!
This is fuzzy, but the best I could get -in the driving rain- of the little choir boys who sang for the very moving Maundy Thursday service at King's when we were there. It was one of the best rainy days ever.
February 22, 2013: No rainy day here today, but still snowing, a darkish kind of day. I think I'll make a new batch of soap. What are your plans for today?
