Today's song/The Folks Who Live On The Hill - Jane Seidel and Chuck Morgan

When I first heard this song a few years ago, I was stopped in my tracks. This could be about us! Tom and I are the folks who live on the hill, veranda and all. How I love these words, written by Oscar Hammerstein II and Jerome Kern in 1937. By the way in case you wonder, there is information about 'Darby and Joan' here.

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.
