April 23rd 1986 – Harold Arlen, great American songwriter, dies.
My mom tells everyone that when the Wicked Witch showed up in the Wizard of Oz I shrieked and ran out of the living room. I don’t remember that but it’s probably true.
I always close my eyes at the scary parts on television and when the boys made me take them to a horror movie I’d embarrass them cause I screamed louder and higher than any kid in the theater. Hey, I’m a sensitive guy.
These days I prefer to just watch happy things. And play music. Oh yeah, Somewhere Over the Rainbow is a great tune.
