Love Is In Da Blog 2020 Day 27: Find a song about love in autumn & Prompt for Day 28
Before he passed away my friend Ron and I were talking about music ( we were at a Mardri Gras Party and music and food were the main topics of conversation )
He asked me who a few of my favorite bands were and I mentioned Glenn Miller- hands down. I was also a fan of the Andrew Sisters.
Ron’s face lit up- ” You know Glenn Miller’s music? ”
Absolutely I said, I grew up with Swing Music because of my Grandparents.
They not only played it on the radio and they played the albums, they also taught me to sing a bunch of cool songs from the 1920’s and 1940’s and to this day I use sayings like ‘ the Cat’s Pajama’s, Bee’s Knees, Moxy and Snap your cap in everyday conversation.
Back to me and Ron.
Ron was a young man in the 1940’s and I wasn’t born until 1964- but in that moment when we started to talk about music we were on the same page and it was the Cat’s Pajamas.
It’s a good memory, a fun one.
So here’s my pick for Love Is In Da Blog 2020 Day 27-
Glenn Miller’s Falling Leaves.
Miss you Ron O.
