The last articles about London drew critics from the wood work as well as those that enjoyed a brief turn back to memories of parents and friends in London. It gives me great pleasure to have the calls to remind me that there is a different twist to the story other then my explanation, but if you will remember, in one of my earlier articles, I printed a hold harmless clause, so fire away.

A half-century ago, the late Nat “King” Cole crooned about the Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer. The lyrics probably “fit” US life in the early ‘60s, but hardly so today. Current summers seem jam-packed. There are “wall-to-wall” activities, early ‘til late, particularly for youngsters. In this piece, we’ll zero in on boys and girls of summer, many of whom attend vacation Bible school early on, thus avoiding conflicts with vacations, sports leagues, and many other activities.

“Ah, sleep. Perchance to dream.” Little did Billy Bob Shakespeare know what the future would bring. Oh, sure. We sleep. We dream. But all night long our email box fills up with junk. Spam, they call it. After the ubiquitous canned food. Hormel Foods Corporation must relish the free publicity. Spam is no laughing matter to them. (As they laugh all the way to the bank.)

Harold Monk, of Denham Springs, Louisiana, is going to be famous one of these days. Right up there with Nick Tesla and Al Einstein, and that other fellow, the one who invented the whoopie cushion.

They’re famous for duck calls in Monroe, LA, and a few blocks away lives a Christian entertainer, Dr. Dennis Swanberg. Known as “The Swan,” he has long been known for impersonations that sound every bit as “real” to listeners as the calls do to ducks. What are the odds that such well-known personalities would live a few blocks apart?
