The Sunny Side of the Street

I shoveled snow for 9 minutes--we didn't have that much--and then walked for 9 minutes to make up the first third of my required exercise for my condition.  The sky was full of big grey and white clouds, but the sun was in an opening and shining warmly on the cold snow.  I altered my course to walk into the sun and on the sunny side of the street.  Made me smile, thinking of the song, "the sunny side of the street."  And then I wondered, does anyone know that song any more?  Do other people besides me still change their course to walk in the sunshine?

"...Can't you hear the pitter-pat
And that happy tune is your step
Life can be complete
On the sunny side of the street."

... and I do cross over to the sunny side, unless it's over 90 degrees outside, then I stay in the shade, too humid here in the south.

Of course, it's WINTER here, and very cold, and the sun is low in the sky and doesn't give much warmth, but any added warmth and cheer is a blessing.
