Casey Jones

Marcel Proust had his moment with a spoonful of tea and a madeline cake. I had my moment today with this whistling wolf:

and the Christy Minstrels singing "Casey Jones."

I loved these cartoons as a kid. We'd walk around the house, slouching a bit, hands in pockets, whistling that happy little tune, not knowing at all what the music was from. Now I know. And I feel the Earth is a richer place. It doesn't take much to get me happy, you see. Just whistling this silly little tune is enough to keep me happy for days.
