    Trust me, some expressions are universal. We even say 'royal' in front of it.

    "A breast full of milk????"

    Somehow, I can't see most kids singing this one without giggling.

    @PTD....yeah, sure the A stands for ankles.

    @RtB.......trust you to pick up on "a breast full of milk". Kids will giggle and say yuk. No doubt about that.

    In the Bleak Midwinter is my second-favorite track on HFC (the Christmas Waltz just edges it out). I love its haunting ethereal beauty. Susan sings it perfectly.

    Where is that line? I apparently missed it, and hubby is asleep, so can't replay.

    @ JudyMcKinn. A breast full of milk starts at around 2.06 minutes into the video.

    The Ground Hog the other day said about many places in North America winter shall continue. lol Actually my country's 'Environment Canada' says things probably will be on the cool side even into April. Considering this I thought if I can't beat it, [Winter] I may as well enjoy it, pretend like it's almost starting...I was going to do a theme in my blog place a piece about about wintery themes in music and came up with quite a few but here's this one of Susan's. Perhaps I should be doing songs about spring but for those of us who'll be having a little bit more of winter how about enjoying Susan sing 'In The Bleak Midwinter'.
    No sweeping exits or offstage lines

    I certainly feel like I'm living in a bleak midwinter. All it does is snow. Plenty today, ice and snow Wed., and maybe a big storm on Saturday.

    @ Bobber, let's us know when the blog is done. When it comes to winter, for me, there is no snow in Sydney. Up in the Blue Mountains about 1.5 hrs drive west of Sydney it snows. BUT, it is nothing like the snow in North America. I love looking at photos and videos of Mother Nature at her finest, decorating the land with snow. Not sure, I would like to live in an area that snowed. The emotion that Susan put into singing "In The Bleak Midwinter" has become one of my favourites on her Christmas Album.

    @ Marty thanks for posting in the Sandbox the photo of the dogs in the yard today. Poor little things out in the snow. They looked so cute huddled together.

    All of you over in the Northern Hemisphere are certainly having your share of a bleak Winter and I hope that Spring is sprung soon for everyone. I am looking forward to Autumn (Fall) and some rain as it is quite dry here from the summer heat.
