We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
That made my day, Bird Dog! I so vividly remember hearing that song on the radio, and my mom and dad singing it. I would have been not quite seven years old when it came out. Thank you for the smiles, and the memories.
Speaking of Canadian male choral groups of the 1950s reminded me of the Crew Cuts, who like the Four Lads, attended the St. Michael's Choir School in Toronto. The only reason I knew of the Crew Cuts is that a 78 of their recording Oop Shoop was at the mountain cabin of some family friends. We played it on on old wind-up record player. You want to listen to recorded music without any electrical power in the cabin? Crank it, boy.
