A Purely Personal Note

I had to unclog the bathroom sink’s drain this morning… and voila! Fifteen minutes–a new world’s record. If Julius Caesar were a guy who unclogged bathroom sinks, he’d be me.

So before this good mood passes, let me post this song for no other reason than I’ve always loved it and I’d like to share it with you: Sweet Betsy from Pike, sung by Burl Ives. It’s an ancient folk song so there are a hundred different versions of it; but they all start with Betsy and Ike trying to cross the mountain.

Anybody thinking about a contest to create a school song or a cheer for Quokka U.? Maybe I’d better just back off and leave it to Byron.

Time for a cigar.

  1. This is one of his rather amusing songs. He was my late husband’s favorite singer. He does have a unique style.
