Letter to the Editor
June 16, 2015
The Fourth is coming
"Summer breeze makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine of my mind. The sweet smell of flowers, the jasmine in bloom. July is dressed up and playing her tune." This song by Seals and Crofts is very pretty and the above is an excerpt from it, and of course it mentions July.
July Fourth is on its way to Tahoe. Let's get ready to rock it again!
Here's another song excerpt from a song that mentions July. "I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy. I'm a Yankee Doodle Boy. A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam, born on the Fourth of July." If that doesn't say Fourth of July, I don't know what does. I always liked that Jimmy Cagney movie and that song.
Here's one last excerpt from Yankee Doodle Dandy: "yankee Doodle went to London riding on a pony, I am that Yankee Doodle Boy!" Tahoe, I hope you enjoyed reading my letter to the editor as much as I enjoyed writing it. Keep rockin'!
