Pictures of Rachel

I used to wake up in the morning
I used to feel so bad
I got so sick of having sleepless nights
I went and told my dad
He said, "Son now here's some little something"
And stuck them on my wall
And now my nights ain't quite so lonely
In fact I, I don't feel bad at all

Pictures of Rachel made my life so wonderful
Pictures of Rachel helped me sleep at night
Pictures of Rachel solved my childhood problems
Pictures of Rachel helped me feel all right

Pictures of Rachel
Rachel, oh Rachel
Rachel, oh Rachel
Pictures of Rachel

And then one day things weren't quite so fine
I fell in love with Rachel
I asked my dad where Rachel I could find
He said, "Son, now don't be silly"
"She's been dead since 2039"
Oh, how I cried that night
If only I'd been born in Rachel's time
It would have been alright
Pictures of Rachel made my life so wonderful
Pictures of Rachel helped me sleep at night
For me and Rachel are together in my dreams
And I ask you, "Hey mister, have you ever seen"
"Pictures of Rachel?"

She is beautiful, no doubt about it. Maybe some pics of her would help me sleep sometimes too. She could be put right next to my diva, Pixie. What a pair they would have made if they ever met.

Thanks for these.
I've been mooning over the ones my parents sent since they went out to see her at Monmouth.

This was my favorite of theirs:

I'm only slightly embarassed to admit that I have 2 pictures of Rachel on my living room wall. I'd love to find a couple of pictures of Zenyatta to go with them, but to me the big mare just isn't as photogenic as Rachel is.

Beautiful C.J.!

LOL, thanks for admitting that Nick.

Brian, I LOVE this!! I am not embarrassed to admit that I have four (count 'em--four!!) pictures of my lady Rachel on our bedroom walls. I am too old for obsessions, but I tell my long-suffering husband that there are far worse obsessions that I could have... I will be there for the PE and cheering her on. I am so glad that you have not deserted her as many of her so-called fans have done. Zenyatta who???
