Sheltered Childhood

17 Sep

Several days ago, I heard a beautiful love song on the radio, sung by a fellow with the sweetest voice. I’d never heard the tune, but it stuck in my head. This afternoon I was doo-doo-doodling the melody, and The Squire asked me about it. So I told him.

“Have you ever heard that before?”, I asked.

“Do you mean you haven’t?”


Elvis Presley. Love me Tender.

Honest to Pete, I had no idea that was who was singing. No wonder the girls were all crazy about him! See what you miss when you go to a boarding school.

    You might want to break into some oldies but goodies… You never know what new treasure you might find.

      Well, I do know all of the verse to “Only a Bird in a Gilded Cage”, and that’s about as old as they come.
