A song

After my Mother passed away in 2011, in some instructions she left me was a reference to her "getting off the planet", which will always make me smile.

Anyhow, her favorite song was "Young at Heart", by Jimmy Durante.  If you need something right now to pick you up, listen to this.

Wherever you are, out there, ma...this one's for you.         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHFFsWWkeWk

Take care and my love to all on BFAC and those we've lost.

And "Goodnight, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are." Gawd, how I remember watching Durante on TV. As he might sing: "Thanks for the memories..." Another Bill

Thanks Bill, I still think of him as the narrator on the animated "Frosty the Snowman".

I remember that song, he was a sweet man. I was in elementary school, about 8 or 9 years old and one of the awards shows was on tv. Jimmy Durante presented with Anissa Jones, Buffy from Family Affair. They came out holding hands and he picked her up and rubbed noses with her, so cute. She had a fluffy white dress and wore little white gloves. Hard to believe she OD'd at 18, with all those drugs in her system😕. Funny how memory works! "My Funny Valentine" is good too. Thank you.

If meds for chemo side effects are bothering you like perhaps anti-nausea meds causing constipation, talk to your doctor about alternatives or possibly trying to go without that Med and see how you make out.

Love the people who are working to help you. Let them know you love them.
