SONG: Blueberry Hill

So many versions of this song but this one is the top of the pop!

BnB Flashback:  Once upon a time, BnB was on vacay and when these DJs heard 
we were from St. Louie Louie, they played Blueberry Hill 'bout 40 times in a row. Literally.

POEM: In Your Pocket

April 26 is Poem in Your Pocket Day.  Choose a poem you love, copy it out and keep a copy in your pocket to share with folks.
Here's one I'm toting around with me:
[in Just-]
in Just-
spring          when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman

whistles          far          and wee

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer
old balloonman whistles
far          and             wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and




balloonMan          whistles
