M.D., I love that combination of jazz and amerind. Wow! Jim Pepper is great. I had to do some research on the man and found that he died of lymphoma. Thanks, honu. Another great one gone.

Ah, there's our Raggedy with a sextet of notables. Thanks again, PA, and I'm glad you like the dolphin. They are beautiful creatures.

Before I forget, I have always wondered about "Indian summer". Found this, but my Irish lexicon, Al, said that it was a warm spell in December.

Indian summer is a name given to a period of sunny, warm weather in autumn, not long before winter. Usually occurring after the first frost, Indian summer can be in September, October, or early November in the northern hemisphere, and March, April, or early May in the Southern hemisphere. It can persist for a few days or extend to a week or more

Here's another jazz man doing "Indian Summer"

@djjd62,
Thanks, dj. I think we're where we were on that famous Black Friday. Liked that Steely Dan version.

Here's the same theme by Sarah Mclachlan.

I am sorry to report, Miss Letty, that two of the three Americans killed in India lived in your home county of Nelson County, Virginia. A father and his teenaged daughter who were on a visit there partially to more deeply immerse themselves in the meditation that provided them and the other members of that community with comfort there in Nelson. A couple of my employees knew the father and said he was a genuinely nice guy.

@edgarblythe,
edgar, the word "politicians" sorta leapt out of that song. Thanks, buddy.

Speaking of leaping, y'all, I found a funny looking spider in my wee studio the other day. I guess that is the closest that I come to a phobia.

He looked something like this

And, as one thing leads to another, I recalled that this little song was done when a person got bitten. Supposedly, that dancing worked up a sweat on the victim and diluted the poison.

My daughter played this one when she was five years old.

Back in a few, folks.

@Letty,

2-year-old Israeli boy orphaned on his birthday
November 28, 2008 23:26 IST

A two-year-old Israeli boy, who was waiting for two days to be reunited with his parents Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivka Holtzberg on his birthday on Friday, will never see them again.

The bodies of Tzvi's parents were found by the Commandos of the National Security Guards who stormed the Nariman House in south Mumbai after killing the two holed-up terrorists.

The baby Moshe Tzvi had been taken out by his nanny on Thursday when the terrorists stormed into Nariman House in south Mumbai, which houses one of the biggest Jewish centres in the city.

The baby's second birthday was today but the grand parents, who flew from Israel after the hostage crisis began, decided to put off celebrations in the hope of celebrating it together with their children.

The grand parents, Shimon and Yehudit Rosenberg, who arrived in Mumbai, met their grandson after driving directly to the Nariman building from the airport.

"Moshe was supposed to celebrate his second birthday today, but the family decided to postpone the celebration because of the difficult events," they told 'Ynet'.

@djjd62,
and to think, dj, that we worry about such petty things on our forum. That poor child will never know his parents. Thanks, Canada, for the additional information.

Well, folks, time for me to say goodnight, and although these are not the original lyrics to this lovely song, they are good ones because Johnny Mercer wrote them. I do so hope that Prince Gautam is all right.

To all of those who have lost loved one,

From Letty with love

@Letty,
Hey, Letty and gang. Just popped in the say 'hi' for a sec.

Everytime I see your topic come up I feel guilty, because it reminds me that it's my turn to write a letter to my uncle in Winter Park. Embarrassed

By the way, how's the weather been like there in the past few weeks? We're into our typical winter stuff here - lots of rain!

@Reyn,
Good morning, WA2K radio audience.

Reyn, I've been to Winter Park, but Orlando is not a place to which I like to travel. I didn't realize that you had kin there, however. As an aside, India forces killed that last of the gunmen, and my sister knew all about the man and his daughter that were victims.

Well, Canada, we need rain here in my little corner of the globe, but this one is for you.

Watched a new version of The Time Machine last evening and thought of this line from a short story by Hawthorne:

"Yes, friends, ye are old again," said Dr. Heidegger, "and lo! the Water of Youth is all lavished on the ground. Well--I bemoan it not; for if the fountain gushed at my very doorstep, I would not stoop to bathe my lips in it--no, though its delirium were for years instead of moments. Such is the lesson ye have taught me!"
But the doctor's four friends had taught no such lesson to themselves. They resolved forthwith to make a pilgrimage to Florida, and quaff at morning, noon, and night, from the Fountain of Youth

Well, there's our blue puppy with a sextet of notables, folks. Thanks, PA. Ah, y'all our seed is back. We always called him our creative janitor. Wax on; wax off seed.

Here's a series that I always loved starring Howie Mandel, and it was the first time that I saw Denzel Washington.

We watched all of the St Elsewhere episodes. One that stands out in my memory, the head doc's son has died. During the autopsy, he holds the son's heart and manipulates it while reciting Green Eggs and Ham.
