Sometimes life can be so strange. Fifty-eight years ago when we were 17 years old, my friend Janet and I used to sing. We had a manager that had a recording studio. We cut one record with him (both sides). The songs were written by him, and he (John) was kind enough to introduce us to Porter Wagoner and Marty Robbins, which led to our touring the summer of 1954 with Marty. First stop was the carrier USS Wasp. Then to the Marine base, Camp Pendleton, then the TV show "California Hayride" with Cottonseed Clark.
The one side of the record was a silly little song called "Come On Home." Well, Janet called me last Monday to tell me it was on the Internet and the "Cara Sisters" were hot in Europe. My cousin Ken Cara called me from Canada tonight and said "What the H*ll?" We had a good laugh. That silly little song has come back after 58 years. What a shock!
Life is full of surprises. And here I had put that record under glass so no one would hear it. Guess the laugh is on me.
