Who IS this Gilbert person anyway?
5 May, 2018
Saturday 9: Standing on the Corner (1956)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) In this song, four friends congregate on Main Street to look longingly at pretty girls. In your town, where is the best place for people watching?
Probably at any of the coffee shops with outdoor seating downtown My choice would be Mishka's
2) This song was written for the Broadway musical, The Most Happy Fella. Who is the happiest person you know?
Either Walt's sister, who is one of the most
amazingly upbeat people I know, or our daughter Jeri, who is can have her
bad moments, but is militantly cheerful and positive. Or my friend's
daughter, Robin, whom I only know through Facebook but who seems incredibly
cheerful, despite adversities.
Parochial school from kindergarten through
12th grade. An Irish order of nuns in grammar school and Daughters of
Charity (think "the flying nun") through high school.
I used to dress up, but this is a casual town
and I've definitely become a casual person. Whatever goes with
I don't have a clue. I am not up on
today's music scene.
I was a terrible hypochondriac and was
terrified that I was going to get polio. I was so afraid that I
wouldn't even look in the direction of the special hospital we had for
children with polio when we drove down that street. My fear came out
of being claustrophobic and the idea of being trapped in an iron lung
Alzheimers and dementia.
Since I rarely drink, I'd say coffee.
We buy Peet's French Roast beans and grind them here at home.
Good lord...many too many to count.
