  4. Love you in your garden as Mr. Bo Jangles! Bless you for including those clips from Sammy Davis,Jr. and Whitney Houston! And your yellow guitar is so perfect for playing in that colorful and lovely garden!


  5. Thanks loads for all the above. Pound for pound, SDJ was the world’s greatest entertainer. Back in the late sixties (memory worth repeating here) I was lost in the back-country of Tennessee when two drunken jerks offered me a ride. We spent the afternoon, after buying some hooch from a bootlegger, listening to the bootlegger tell stories about Bill Robinson. Bill had a lot in common with Jerry Jeff in that regard. Thanks for the post.
