I remeber going to the movies for a dime when my sister and I were kids. Times sure were different then. She and I would ride the bus, alone, to the movies. We were about 6 and 7 years old.Hi GB, I remember the sing along cartoons too. When I was a kid it cost 12 cents to see
the show. Usually a double feature plus a cartoon, a travelog, and a news reel. No ads.
I loved the sing alongs. I sang along too despite the handicap of having a lousy voice.
I thought "La Paloma" meant the swallow, but I just looked it up and found it translated as
"dove". I was so startled I almost swallowed my shoes. Ha Ha!
Used to have some of Mitch's albums. Did you know he was also a performer of classical
music? Played the oboe. Also the English horn which looks like a clarinet with a bulge
at the bottom.
Hard to believe how much the world, including popular culture, has changed in our lifetimes.
Glad you enjoyed the trip down memory lane.
