3 feet high and rising

We have probably written all there is to write regarding the facts surrounding the be-sneaker'd feet that have been washing up on the shores of Vancouver Island and environs for several years now, so we won't spill any ink on this latest, except to point out that yes, another foot has made an appearance:

Something we didn't know:
Vancouver Island is also well known for its Sasquatch sightings.
For well over a decade, residents on or near Vancouver Island have reported hearing strange howls during the day and night. Some have even claimed to have seen one of the creatures.
The Sasquatch, we should point out, is also known as....Bigfoot.

  1. My mama always taught me that good things come from adversity if we put our faith in the Lord.

    We couldn't see much good in the flood waters when they
    were causing us to have to leave home,
    But when the water went down, we found that it had washed a load of rich black bottom dirt across our land. The following year we had the best cotton crop we'd ever had.

    I remember hearing:

    How high's the water, mama?
    Two feet high and risin'
    How high's the water, papa?
    Two feet high and risin'

    We can make it to the road in a homemade boat
    That's the only thing we got left that'll float
    It's already over all the wheat and the oats,
    Two feet high and risin'

    How high's the water, mama?
    Three feet high and risin'
    How high's the water, papa?
    Three feet high and risin'

    Well, the hives are gone,
    I've lost my bees
    The chickens are sleepin'
    In the willow trees
    Cow's in water up past her knees,
    Three feet high and risin'

    How high's the water, mama?
    Four feet high and risin'
    How high's the water, papa?
    Four feet high and risin'

    Hey, come look through the window pane,
    The bus is comin', gonna take us to the train
    Looks like we'll be blessed with a little more rain,
    4 feet high and risin'

    How high's the water, mama?
    Five feet high and risin'
    How high's the water, papa?
    Five feet high and risin'

    Well, the rails are washed out north of town
    We gotta head for higher ground
    We can't come back till the water comes down,
    Five feet high and risin'

    Well, it's five feet high and risin'
