Burl Ives


Tuesday afternoon, being so hot and all, was the very definition of a "lazy summer day." BBBH and I, in a most literal interpretation, lay down for a nap. I awakened with Burl Ives on my mind. I had not thought of him in years, probably. But now I had this desire to hear his melodious voice again. Fortunately in this day one doesn't even have to search through the vinyl, but has only to go to the interwebby thingy! I have been enjoying the listening. Hope you like this one.

Burl Icle Ivanhoe Ives (June 14, 1909 – April 14, 1995) RIP
[Irony: I missed his birthdate by a few days.]

Burl Ives was from the area around where I went to college (Western Illinos University). I went to mass one Sunday and he was there, singing and playing his guitar for the mass! Do you know how hard it is to pray when Burl Ives was jamming in the corner????!

Oh, Lin, that is just too cool! Burl Ives singing and playing at church. Lucky you.
