I have an album of Glenn Miller.  Love his music!  I was kind of tall for jitterbugging, though.  I'm a fox trot kind of gal.

When I worked at the assisted living close to where I live I would get out those old songs for them and sing along with them.  It was so precious, I felt like I went back in time with them.

I so much agree.............not only is that fun, but the elderly are so entertaining in just listening to the stories of their lives. My grandma wrote her memoirs, so to speak. 4 books, and one prob unfinished, but I can never thank her enough for sharing all that. My uncle put her words to page, printed and gave them to all the family. He printed just as she wrote it, so when you read it, it is really like listening to HER talking. He said he started to clean it up, but then thought it wouldn't sound so much like her and he was absolutely right. Of all my books, I treasure these the most. I guess I really should have them in a much safer place.

That sounds really interesting, italybound.  Thank you for sharing this about your grandma.  I bet the books are really interesting to read.  I love to hear of how things used to be and how they survived the hard times.

Yeah, it was interesting to learn that either my g'pa, his dad or g'pa (can't remember which) was offered a job as lookout for the Jesse James Gang. At the time of the offer he did not know who they were. Glad he turned it down, either way.
