'BLACKBIRD SINGING IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT" is the beginning of a well-known Beatles song. Actually, when Paul McCartney wrote this song, it had nothing whatsoever to do with blackbirds. It was inspired by Rosa Parks and the civil rights movement in the U.S. In England, black women were often referred to as black birds, hence the title. With this in mind, it gives the lyrics an entirely new interpretation.
Crown Hill Cemetery in my city encompasses 555 acres of beautiful grounds and is home to hundreds of stone angels such as the one above. It is a peaceful and serene place for long walks and bicycle rides. Credits: Create Wings Designs and Pinterest.
When I was a child 10 cents would buy a Dixie Cup filled with ice cream that came with a little wooden spoon. Inside each lid was a picture of a popular movie star of the time. It was always great excitement to see whose picture was in your Dixie Cup. On Saturday nights, outdoor movies were shown in the tiny town near our farm. We children spread blankets on the grassy area, and most of us were treated to a Dixie Cup. I understand these lids are collector items now. Oh, SIGH, I'm SO old!
