Back in Your Own Backyard

Vera Lynn's version of Back in Your Own Backyard written by Al Jolson, Billy Rose, and Dave Dreyer. It seems so appropriate for Thanksgiving.

  1. Nan, I hope you and your family have a great holiday season this year. I'm sure you're cooking up a wonderful Thanksgiving feast.

  2. Ron, thank you and wish a wonderful day to you as well. Not cooking a feast at all. I'll probably do a blog entry on it. :<)

  3. Nan, A very happy days of thanks to you and yours.

    No feast? Ours is small-scale, a family sized feast, but it reminds me of our many blessings. I wrote a post about it earlier today; I'm looking forward to reading what you have to say about thanksgiving and why you're not cooking a feast.

    warm regards,
    Aisling

  4. Sweet voice from the past! Thanks for finding this again for us. I wonder if Susan Boyle might sing this song.

  5. Thank you, Scriptor. This morning is quite the same. I love mist and fog. My Irish friend says I have an Irish soul. (which could of course also be English and Scottish and Welsh!)

    Aisling, thank you, and the same to you!

    Mary Lois, I just heard this song for the first time yesterday, and was so struck by the words. The version I heard was by Bobby Troup. Billie H. did it, as well as many others.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
