Its-not-easy-bein-green-w-KermitHaving been Green my whole life, I know the wisdom of the song first sung by the great philosopher Kermit the Frog.

It’s not that easy bein’ green
Having to spend each day the
color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer
bein’ red or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

“Bein’ Green” was written by Joe Raposo and was originally performed by Jim Henson as Kermit on both Sesame Street and The Muppet Show.

It’s not easy bein’ green
It seems you blend in with so
many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over ’cause you’re
Not standin’ out like flashy
sparkles on the water
Or stars in the sky

It has been covered by a number of performers such as Ray Charles. Van Morrison, and Frank Sinatra.

But green is the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean
Or important like a mountain
Or tall like a tree

“Bein’ Green” was sung by Big Bird (Caroll Spinney) at the two memorial services for Jim Henson in 1990.

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But why wonder, why wonder?
I am green and it’ll do fine
It’s beautiful
And I think it’s what I want to be

…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night

For 23-G … I turn to gentle giants… there are (thankfully) lots of them still. Almost every zoo in The Netherlands does have them and does breed with them so I often get the opportunity to take pictures of newborns, which are always the cutest, aren’t they? It is impossible to show you every picture I’ve taken already throughout the years but I show you some of my favorites.

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!

21-G by Roger

Hello. I’m Roger GREEN from upstate New York, in the US of A. I have been blogging since 2005, every day, currently at rogerogreen.com; talk about your OCD.

I have been participating in the previous iteration of ABC Wednesday, initiated by Denise Nesbitt, since October 2008. Then I joined Mrs. Nesbitt’s team of visitors from about 2009 until she made me the administrator in July 2012.

So I’m “retired” from that. But when Melody decided to continue the ABC Wednesday journey, I foolishlynaturally said, “Of course.”

This can be a very pleasant meme, coming up with something clever that fits the alphabetical theme for the week. I find that I come up with the idea well in advance and let it simmer in some back side of my mind. It sure beats tabula rasa.


So that’s me. No, I’m not really a millionaire playboy OR a crime fighter, though I DID collect comic books for over 20 years.
