Happy Together from the Turtles of Coulon

Did you get the title? If not, you’re too young and that’s okay too! You can tell me in the comments. πŸ˜‰

Yesterday on the first day of fall in between days of rain which is our new normal, we had a wonderful sunshiny day and I spent it with a friend at Coulon Park.

It was the first time since March that I’d done anything with someone other than my husband – and we walked and talked and ate, and walked and talked some more.

And we stopped to visit with the Turtles in their usual hangout.

The whole gang was there – grandma and grandpa, mom and dad, a couple of teenagers, and a little youngster who enjoyed the view atop one of the others.

They jockeyed a bit for position, stretched out their necks and limbs to soak in the rays, and took turns on the log – Happy Together.

  1. The turtles not only had “Happy Together” but many other hits as well, and they were a clever, sophisticated band at times…like the chorus of “Eleanor”, which goes:

    “Eleanor, gee I think you’re swell
    And you really do me well
    You’re my pride and joy

    • “Gee I think you’re swell.” πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ Happy Together reminds me of Maria because as a toddler she would say, “I want I do,” which meant she wanted to hear the song, Happy Together, which starts out, ‘”Imagine me and you – I do.”

    • Thanks Pete. We had it too, must have been a 45. I liked the sound, still do. My little sister who was just a toddler, wanted me to play it for her over and over. She called it, ‘I do.’ ‘I want I do.’ Good memories! ☺

  2. Ok in my mind I can hear the phrase β€œhappy together” to the tune, but I don’t remember anything else from the song. So after your hint at the beginning I figured it had to have been the Turtles who sang it. I must have been…(ahem)…to young at the time…πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹
