Today is the 14th anniversary of my father's passing. Every year, April 9 just gets a little more heart wrenching, even though Time is the great healer. As a salute to my Pops, I'm playing songs on my uke and piano today that my Pop loved, like My Blue Heaven, A-Tisket A-Tasket, Ain't She Sweet?, On The Street Where You Live, Don't Fence Me In, Paper Moon, O Danny Boy, My Wild Irish Rose, It's Only a Shanty, and scads of other wonderful tunes. I'm grateful for those memories...and I'm grateful you read this all the way through -- thanks! lol Love love love to all my lambchops, now smile and be nice to someone you don't like today. You'll be glad you did, I promise :)
