I've always loved "big band" and swing music and as a teenager, when my contemporaries were saving up for Beatles and Rolling Stones on vinyl I was haunting jumbles sales with my pocket money looking for Glen Miller, Benny Goodman, The Dorsey Brothers et al on 78 shellac records. Even as a little girl I was deeply unimpressed with Elvis Presley and Bill Haley and the Comets. My favourite uncle was a jazz fan and I think I caught it from him.
MC, we have to talk! My Dad hitchhiked from Hamilton, Ontario to New York right after he was discharged from WWII. In uniform, he and his buddy got into many shows including The Dorseys, Debbie Reynolds, Benny Goodman and more. It was funny, in his last years he lost a lot of his memories present and past, but he would go on and on about his trip and who he saw.

He brought me up with a love of big band music, jazz, you name it. And filled me with a ton of knowledge as well.

For all the big band fans, here's an 8 minute clip from a 1941 movie. There's some pretty amazing dancing that starts at about 5 minutes.

God bless.
Thank you so very much for your very kind words! We are feeling a little better and Mamma is also. I was so very worried of her, but her coughing is now getting rid of that stuff in her lungs and she is feeling better. Carl's cold hasn't brought up an asthma attack, and I'm so very grateful for that. Lakisha and I are better, also.

My stitches are to be removed on my birthday, January 3. Such a very nice birthday present! It feels very much better and I didn't have to use all those pills. I did tear part of the gash open when I was driving Mamma to the hospital, but a doctor there saw to this and fixed it with bigger stitches. Most of it has healed now and I have Lakisha to look of it and she says it looks good. I'll be just fine. As Mamma says, I bounce very well!

Papa and DA are still well, and I'm so very, very grateful of this. But in a few days, I'll have to take him to the airport for his flights back to Brasov. I'm hating this, for I'm going to lose him. And he's going back all alone, for Mamma must wait. But he promised me he would call me now at least three times a week so we can have this time together.

Poor Papa. I think this visit has been very difficult for him, but yet also he knows I love him and we have a closer relationship now and we cherish every minute we have together.

I told Carl and Lakisha I needed a plan to sabotage his departure, but the ideas we came up with will result in very much time in prison.

Happy New Year! And thank you!

With love,
~Cat
