Hear Them Ring

I have been writing today from the kitchen table in my mom's house outside of McDonald, PA. I can report that it's a wet, dreary day in Western PA.

Since I'm in the ole hometown, I'm obliged to again present "Silver Bells" for the "YouTube clip for a peaceful weekend." Regular readers of this space will remember that this Christmas classic was co-written by another McDonald native, Jay Livingston (1915 - 2001).

Many musical artists have done versions of "Silver Bells." But, to my mind, the best remains its debut presentation by Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell in the mostly forgotten 1951 comedy film "The Lemon Drop Kid."
