Fats Waller, Your Feet's To Big
Old Mrs. Denby's Cottage at Wells Beach, Maine, had a floor model crank up Victrola, and dozens of ancient 78 speed, scratchy old records. They were album sized but they were singles, and were an eighth inch thick. While the old folks were out strolling the beach after dinner, we would sneak in and put on this record. We played it endlessly until we knew all the words. Sung it endlessly for a lifetime. Thank you Mr. Waller wherever you are, for all the good times.
Hey Katherine it worked!!! (she helped me figure out how to imbed one of these videos into a post). Thanks so much for your help!
About twenty years later I was one of the "old folks" strolling with my buddy John's old SLR, rolled up my jeans and snapped this image from the surf. Ten years after that I made this piece from the old snapshot.
