Christmas Island 1947

This morning I had to go fairly early in -40C weather to the grocery store to get some things for
a luncheon we were giving.

So I was listening to the radio in the car and this song from 1947 came on. Just thinking with snow filled streets and very few people walking given the cold wind and the ice on the sidewalks how nice it would be to be in the South Pacific right now.
This song Christmas Island was one of the Andrews Sister album of '47. To me often this was like yesterday.

Lots of fun to hear again after so many years.


  1. 'Like yesterday'? Don't wish it could be as recent as that, but maybe not quite so long ago (I was born in '47).

  2. Are you familiar with The Boswell Sisters?

  3. I haven't heard this in years! Thanks for the reminder.

    1. Placer! as they say in your neck of the woods.

  4. Absolutely wonderful!. Normally I save new holiday music I receive for Christmas until the following year but now I am prompted to open the CD and listen to the Lennon Sisters version.
