First Full Day in London

We saw some bridges, saw some old buildings, stopped at 3 Starbucks, ate a good small dinner at our hotel, had a good conversation; we'll see more sights tomorrow. After the beauty of Wales, hard to feel grounded in a big city. I am glad to be in London to see famous things, yet Wales was more soulful. We will see Westminster Abbey tomorrow--the top of my list. We'll also see an Agatha Christie play, Mousetrap. 

And lyrics running thigh my head tonight from "Annie:"

The sun'll come out
Bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow
There'll be sun!

Just thinkin' about
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
'Til there's none!

When I'm stuck a day
That's gray,
And lonely,
I just stick out my chin
And Grin,
And Say,

The sun'll come out
So ya gotta hang on
'Til tomorrow
Come what may

I love ya
You're always
A day
A way!

It's the hard knock life...
It's the hard knock life..

It's the hard-knock life for us
It's the hard-knock life for us

Steada treated, 
We get tricked
Steada kisses, 
We get kicked
It's the hard-knock life!

Got no folks to speak of, so
It's the hard knock row we hoe
Cotton blankets ..steada wool

Empty bellies ..steada full! 
It's the hard-knock life

Don't if feel like the wind is always howlin? 
Don't it seem like there's never any light??
Once a day, don't you wanna throw the towel in?
It's easier than puttin' up a fight

No one's there when your dreams at night get creepy
No one cares if you grow...or if you shrink
No one cries when your eyes get wet and weepy
From all the cryin' you would think this place would sink
Ohhh.. ohhh

Empty belly life! ((empty belly life))
Rotten smelly life! ((No no no no no))
Full of sorrow life! ((full of sorrow life...))
No tomorrow life! 

Santa Claus we never see...
Santa Claus what's that? Who's he?

No one cares for you a smidge
When you're in an orphanage

It's the hard-knock life for us
It's the hard-knock life for us 
No one cares for you a smidge
When your in an orphanage 
It's the hard-knock life
It's the hard-knock life
It's the hard-knock life!
