Still on the mend and each day my wound and I look and feel better.
My wife and I have trouble sharing a room together for more than ten minutes, She thinks I am a baby and want to be pampered.
Jack on his Ship Log blog, again brought memories back for me,
What with news paper masks.We used a balloon for a mold for the face mask. I was often or maybe always a Bum. We also smeared our faces and hands with black soot top it off with my Dad's old hats.
My grand children are going out in beautiful costumes at a cost over over $150. Our outfits cost $.00. I hope they will have as much fun as I did but unfortunately they probably won't. They of course are spoiled rotten by parents who can afford to do it. How times have changed over the last 80 years. Wow !
Here is a song I use to sing before I realized it cut into my candy collecting.
Well that wasn't the one I wanted. I was only one yearwhen that movie came out. We used to go to the movies, only on Saturdays , where admission was only a dime.
Let me try again. Cant' find it but as I recall it went something like this.
Alleluia, I am a bum,
Alleluia, , bum again
Alleluia, give me a handout and I revive you again
One day I went to a house and knocked on the door
A man opened the door and said "Bum, Bum, you been here before.
And there were three other verses.
My father had a old record, one sided, of this song, that I think belonged to his father and was played on an old RCA Victrola windup player with the big horn for speakers.
Yes Jack you brought memories and something to do for the last hour. I don't know how you daily poster do it every day. But I do enjoy reading them . Thank you all.
