My wife and I are headin'out to Kalamazoo Michigan for a big Drum corps Show. Linda and i re part of the ticket crew. We go to the Major events and do all the ticket stuff. For those of you old enough to remember, I am going to see if Tex Beneke's Gal is still there. AJ You may have to explain that one to all them there ******** and youngins

Now all you "********" behave and no more "Mater" throwin' til I get back, so's I can defend myself.:work:

Well, Drumbo, I know what you'll be singing on the way!

And THAT song is from my teens ....

Ive Got A Gal In Kalamazoo Lyrics - Glenn Miller

A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H
I got a gal in Kalamazoo
Don’t want to boast but I know she’s the toast of Kalamazoo
(Zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo)

Years have gone by, my my how she grew
I liked her looks when I carried her books in Kalamazoo
(Zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo)

I’m gonna send away, hoppin’ on a plane, leavin’ today
Am I dreamin’? I can hear her screamin’
"Hiya, Mr. Jackson"
Everything’s OK, A-L-A-M-A-Z-O

Oh, what a gal, a real pipperoo
I’ll make my bid for that freckle-faced kid I’m hurryin’ to
I’m goin’ to Michigan to see the sweetest gal in Kalamazoo
(Zoo, zoo)
(Zoo, zoo, zoo, Kalamazoo)
K (K)
A (A)
L-A-M-A-Z-O
(Oh, oh, oh, oh what a gal, a real pipperoo)
(We’re goin’ to Michigan to see the sweetest gal in Kalamazoo)
(Zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo)
(Kalamazoo!!)

We were totaly impressed with Kalamazoo and its cleanliness and personable people. To a person all that we came in contact with were most polite and genuine. But then we weren't surprised as we have been on trips into the area several times before and knew that we were in for a treat. As soon as we stepped off the plane in Phila and one look at the surroundings, our thoughts were to get the next flight back but knew that it would be impossible.

Glad your back

and you know what!?

Philadelphia used to be a beautiful city. Then something happened after the Viet Nam war.

It's sad!
