Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)
Thank you once again Pug me lad for your prompt and informative reply.
There ain’t many ‘Silks’ in my area I can tell you, although there were a family of Judges, there used to be 10 kids and the mother and father, horrible little tea leafs they were too, if ever a surname went astray it was on the Judges.
I would not do a judges job for all the tea in China, God help them, they may be well paid and have influence in high places but they have to have constant security and are not really free people i think one has to be specially cut out for that type of job.
I could never pass judgement on my fellow man, just think of all the mistakes that they have made over the centuries and sent innocent people to their deaths, better a hundred murderers rot away in prison than one innocent person go to the gallows in my opinion.
My mother in laws maiden name was Bowes, she had a brother who went to Spain to fight in the civil war there, when he came home he insisted everyone called him "El Bowes”
Buttons and Bows.
Bob Hope, The Sentimentalists
East is east and west is west
And the wrong one I have chose
Let's go where they keep on wearin'
Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows
Rings and things and buttons and bows.
Don't bury me in this prairie
Take me where the cement grows
Let's move down to some big town
Where they love a gal by the cut o' her clothes
And you'll stand out, in buttons and bows.
I'll love you in buckskin
Or skirts that you've homespun
But I'll love ya' longer, stronger
Where yer friends don't tote a gun
My bones denounce the buckboard bounce
And the cactus hurts my toes
Let's vamoose where gals keep a-usin'
Those silks and satins and buttons and bows
Gimme eastern trimmin' where women are women
In high silk hose and peek-a-boo clothes
And French perfume that rocks the room
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows.
