    We should probably start a club for those of us who are middle-aged, older'n dirt, old enough to die, or at least old enough to know better. I was 21 the other day, then I blinked and I'm almost 45.
    I understand what Mailman says. I don't know ANY of the songs the younger people on here post about! (I like it, but I don't know what it is.) I go somewhere and play an old tin pan alley-era thing that I thought EVERYbody knew, but it's completely foreign to anyone who isn't old enough to have used a dime to make a phone call.
    Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.--Groucho Marx

    Well, I teach at a University and there are some of the younger people who will know this stuff, but then I'm a historian so I tend to get those students who appreciate the past. It does go by quickly, we as long as we hold onto our dreams, it's never too late. Mike

    Well, I love tin pan alley, and calls always cost me a quarter.

    And music should be about letting people know you, which this song certainly does.

    Great job

    I'm actually going to try and teach my mom, who is 84, how to play. I already taught her a C chord but she is left handed so I have to reverse the nut and strings on my Mahalo so she can do it - but I am confident she can. Maybe she will do a video. Mike
