Today’s blob is dedicated to all the Marie’s and Maria’s we know. Besides the Blessed Mother, of course, this includes my daughters Lisa Marie, Susan Marie, Gretchen Marie, Teresa Marie, Judith Marie; granddaughter Gretchen Marie; nieces Christine Marie Milner and Christine Marie Ford, Rene’ Marie, Denise Marie, great niece Meghan Marie, and Linda Lewis’s granddaughter Maria.
Now who did I forget? Please tell me – even if, like me – it’s your confirmation name – and then I will add you to my collection and let you watch this video. (Actually, even if your name ISN’T Marie or Maria, you may watch it if you will promise to make it your favorite animal video OF ALL TIME.)
Wouldn’t you too like to have a goose named Maria?
Now for all of you, especially Maria with the webbed feet, here’s the words to your name-song on Sound of Music.
How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you catch a clown and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Maria?
A flibberti gibbet!
A willo’ the wisp!
Many a thing you know you’d like to tell her,
Many a thing she ought to understand.
But how do you make her say,
And listen to all you say?
How do you keep a wave upon the sand?
Oh, how do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?
