Thank you, B4real. Much appreciated.

Regarding the prose: "Only left-handers are in their right mind".....I happen to be left handed !!!

But (my lady friend) Julie will tell you I haven't been in my right mind ever since she met me. :lol:

"Tom Dooley" sung by The Kingston Trio
>>> Dave Guard + Bob Shane + Nick Reynolds {song intro} <<<
lead singer: Bob Shane, banjo (aka: "The Hawaiian Elvis")
TV host: Milton Berle (top comedian back then)

- Brucester (Montreal, QC, Canada)

ps: Leonard Cohen was a member of the Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT) Fraternity while he was attending McGill University.
Two things "frat guys" did at ZBT was (1) chase girls, and (2) listen to Kingston Trio records.
Leonard complained that the girls ran away too fast and he was much too slow running after them.
So he spent most of his time listening to records !!!

Hi Brucester,
Interesting connection between Leonard and Tom Dooley. I remember that song from my childhood ;-)

And I forgot to mention another connection with Elvis and Leonard - they both sang Tennessee Waltz.
LC's additional verse of it is not included with Elvis here but he does sing some ad lib words :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEYABX6aSxk

Now I don’t want to clutter up this thread with non-Flame or non-LC stuff so here’s my left handed reply and some brainy “There is a war between the left and right” fun here –

Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!
