Hey Ho Diddley Bop
Hat tip: AC
"Hey, ho, diddley-bop
I wish I was back on the block
Bo Diddly, Bo Diddly where you been?
Round the world and back again. "
Certain things stick in your mind, but get muddled as time passes. If you ever saw "Blue Lagoon", it showed a good example of this. The kids remembered bits and pieces of old songs and stories. The above is something I was trying to remember from Basic training, and AC remembered it! We would march around sort of 'singing' this song... also the C-130 song from a previous post. When I first arrived at Basic, I was horrifed by the heat and 'in your face' behavior of the TIs, but by the end I had nothing but admiration for them (the TIs that is:>)).
btw, the mystery of the carnage at the park was solved. Mr Eyes examined the remains (being an ex-trapper/hunter) and said it was probably a local resident who enjoys the taste of fresh Nutrea. Actually, Farmer John guessed this also:>)
