Where Does The Time Go?

While skimming this morning’s paper, I perused the “Today in History” column, I saw that Louis Armstrong died on July 6, 1971. If someone had stopped me on the street and asked what year “Satchmo” died, I would have guessed the mid 1980’s and I would have been wrong.

We don’t hear much about him these days, but he was a giant back in the day and a very strong memory of my childhood. I can still see my grandmother singing this song while preparing a family dinner.  I sit here wondering if any of our three daughters ever heard of him? (Maybe they would recognize  “It’s a Wonderful Life”)

As one of the comments on Youtube states:

How can you watch Mr. Armstrong & not just have a big smile on your face?

From 1965, recorded in Berlin, Germany.

  3. He still brings a smile to my face — I just wish they didn’t play him only at Christmas. Take care Julian
