Doors

Daddy's Favourite!
And who better to put the topic of DOORS to rhyme than Spike Jones and his City Slickers!
I can still hear Daddy singing along...



Also for your enjoyment: The best article about doors I've ever read!

Mondays do get knocked a lot,
With poetry, we three besought,
To try to make the week begin
With pleasant thoughts--perhaps a grin?
So Jenny and Delores, we,
Have posted poems for you to see.
And now you've seen what we have brought . . .
Did we help?
Or did we not?

Though some of us have just signed up,
Next week's about The Grandma Club!

  8. I had to smile at the gramophone - it brought back memories of the one my dad had (he liked old stuff) and we enjoyed the records with their whimsical lyrics (much like this one!)

  12. Hi Diane,
    Welcome to the 4M Gang! This is a fun song. I've never heard of Spike Jones and the City Slickers so I did go check him out on Wikipedia. Will have to go dig up some more of his music. Sounds like he had some great satirical songs. On the page there is a photo of him with Marilyn Monroe...

    Hope you're enjoying your week here with the Monday's Music Moves Me gang. Please stop by my place when you get a chance. Enjoy your Sunday.
