This Saturday morning has found us walking down memory lane. One of my stops at Half Price Books during the Christmas frenzy netted me a collection of "moldy oldies" and I am thoroughly enjoying listening and singing along. A lot of the songs in the collection were to be found in my father's collection of LPs back in the Sixties and they are old friends. Perry Como, Johnny Mathis, Rosemary Clooney, Johnny Ray, Dean Martin, Doris Day and many others.
Mother said when I was a baby I would "dance" to Bing Crosby and Teresa Brewer. There's no Bing Crosby here, but two songs by Teresa Brewer found me bopping around the kitchen with the dogs looking on askance. She might not have been the best singer, but I sure like the beat and I guess I always have.
Once again I am pondering the possibility of getting in the back of the closet and hauling out the half-dozen boxes of vinyl LPs to see what all is there that I've forgotten. I'm hoping the feeling will pass before I do so. I've managed not to start any messy projects while I've been off and that closet is not something I should tackle with less than two days left of vacation. Maybe this summer...maybe by then that turntable that turns vinyl into digital will come down a little in price.
In the meantime, I will probably wear this 3-CD set out. Belafonte, Gogi Grant and The Four Lads in the background has a relaxing effect on me.
