Rainbows: Part One
Sunday night it came up a shower while we were eating at Moxie Burger, but just as quickly the storm passed. We saw a couple out on the deck looking up in the sky. As we left sure enough we saw it: God was using the setting sun to create a beautiful rainbow.
When I see a rainbow the first thing I think of is Sonny Bono singing "Sweet and Loving Sarah" on The Love Boat. Actually I think of Don Head (and I) singing the song to Tara Sapp. Since I had the song in my head, I finally had to look it up. A classic.
I did not realize Sonny was playing the role of an aging heavy-metal rock star in the genre of KISS' Gene Simmons. That makes it even better.
As a kid I had become enamored with Sonny's self-depreciating comedy on the oh so popular Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour - must see TV back in the day. Interestingly, the last time Sonny and Cher sang together was when David Letterman reunited them on his show.
