"Just the Black Notes", and "Gee, Officer Krupke", and a Magic trick fer yur wife.

My friend "Fish" frum down Kentucky way sent me this video a few days back and I just now got around to viewing it. Now Sir, although I knew about the author of this beautiful song and what he did prior to writing it, I didn't know the ENTIRE story.

I have a musical background, and have always enjoyed this particular piece, as I'm sure many of you have. Take about 8 minutes of yur time, learn sumthin new and enjoy......I think it will amaze you.

A big COOKSHACK THANKS to "Fish" fer share'n this with us.

Now Sir, on a lighter side, here be a skit frum West Side Story, a broadway musical I performed in several times (back in the day). BTW, FYI, I played "Baby John", the Social Worker.

"Gee, Officer Krupke"


...and I understand that "The Chief" pulled this on his wife some years back. He still talks in falcetto....
