    Sitting here thinking and a song comes to mind. It was an old one by Burl Ives. Some of you younguns probably thinking 'who the hell is Burl Ives'. He must have been the original Folk Song singer. The tune that keeps coming to mind is 'There was an old Lady'. I'll start the first verse how many of you old men con fill in the blanks? Rules are if you pick up the second verse you have to type in the first verse also. Here we go........

    There was an old lady who swallowed a fly, I don't know why she swallowed a fly. Perhaps she'll die.

    What came next???? One verse per turn. The guy who finishes it I will send a 2 shell spare shell holder. Mike.

    I know an old lady who swallowed a spider, That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her. She swallowed the spider to catch the fly, I don't know why she swallowed the fly, I guess she'll die.

    I always liked his performance in The Big Country, playing Rufus Hannassey. As a kid his role amazed me, because it was so out of character for him. Keep in mind this was the Burl Ives who was the voice of the snowman in the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer animation, and now he was playing a vicious, ruthless, nasty old man.

    He also made the first recording of Ghost Riders in the Sky....

    How about his preformance of Big Daddy in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof? Liz Taylor was beautiful.
