My dad also had 4 brothers, plus 2 sisters. Loved that video, got me moving this morning. I can see why it was your dads favorite

I absolutely love train whistles. Especially in the middle of the night. It's one of the reasons I like to keep my windows open at night because I can hear the train whistle go through Mesa a couple of times. It is so eerily haunting and totally lovely all at the same time. I've always loved trains.

Love that song.... I've heard it off and on my entire life.... Our family was very musical --but none of us played the harmonica.. My brother Jimmy played the accordion. I played the piano --so we had some great family music time growing up...

Love that picture of your Daddy... You have some great memories, don't you?
Hugs,
Betsy

Love the pix from the past and good memories about the harmonica. It is hard to believe all the spectacular sound that can come out of a harmonica! Thanks for sharing!

I love to see pictures from the past, I guess it comes from all the time I spend on genealogy. I remember hearing this song when I lived in the south.
