It hardly seems possible, but yesterday was the 16th anniversary of my Pa’s death. As I always do on his birthday and his freedomday, I played some of the songs ‘n’ singers my Pa loved the most.
Naturally there was some Roger Miller and some Nat King Cole. I’ve told you before how my Pa used to wake his kids (there were three of us) for school by suddenly blasting the song ‘You Can’t Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd’. (Does that qualify as “child abuse”?)
