50. That sounds just as chilling as its reputation was in those days...

I'm trying to recall some of Tommy Sands' music (my massive CD collection is in boxes since we moved a year ago, which is really annoying). Like the Clancy Brothers, he grew up in Northern Ireland -- ah, you may know or be able to find online "There Were Roses," about the deaths of two young men he knew.

Sorry, when I get into music and poetry my mind goes wandering in the fields of my library.

>sigh< It's another day of watching fire news here in California. My SIL has friends in Paradise (Northern Cal) she can't get hold of, and the whole town was just wiped off the map. Out where we live in Ventura, there is fire at the south end of the county, crossing over into LA county, and of course the Malibu fire seems to be canyon-hopping pretty briskly. The Santa Ana winds are up again today. --- And that *hole we are stuck with as president can only sneer at the misery and loss of fellow Americans while disgracing us on the world stage.
