    Hey Roy

    Here's a song for you ...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nSZGXk92So



    When the kids were little I told them their mother sat up in bed and started singing this song ... we were just having a good laugh about it today ... ...oh, she made sure they knew she didn't ................or did she ...

    It is another one of the songs I whistle whilst I work ...

    A trip down memory lane. #1 hit song in 1942. Bigbird and Bencool were in the early 80's back then. Good song Charlie. Thanks

    Roy here is another…

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXXBxYZiRPU

    When I was little I thought he was singing about his horse dying …I cried …

    Even now and knowing it was not about a horse when I hear or whistle this song I still think about that poor horse …


    Have a good night Roy, maybe play this one for the torchhead ... she will be sad and need a hug ... and who knows what else ...

    You were right old bud. I looked up from the screen to see Torch head looking in the office. She got her little hug and a dance while the song played.

    I shoveled snow until the rain melted it ... I am waiting for stock for the ONLY job I have going ... Just came back to see if any of my nice customers sent me checks ... ...no... Suppose ably the stock should be in this afternoon.
