Daniel, the dog eating corn brings back so many memories for me. It was 1946, I was ten years old. Our dads came home from building airfields in Alaska and our moms were laid off from their jobs at Kaiser Aluminum Rolling Mill, we were in our own home, not in a 12 foot trailer in a migrant worker camp, but in a real house with a yard, space for a garden, life began to settle down into a new normal. We brought home a collie and named her Lassie, after the 1943 movie. She loved sweet corn and ate every kernel. She had her own style of eating it and remembering brings tears to my eyes. 

Lassie Come Home

I won't mention that my sweet corn is tassling (sp?). And it's not even July yet. Daniel's dog's corn looks like Silver Queen.

"Sleigh Ride" (without the mawkish unofficial lyrics) was my first introduction to Leroy Anderson.  It was the opening and closing theme of the very first professional ice show I ever saw; a LIVE-remote summer replacement on a local TV station.  Bad reception and all. I had to have been about 10 or 11 years old, and I was a goner.  I'd never seen anything like that before in my life.  It CHANGED my life...for the better.

Every time I hear the trite lyrics that somebody else wrote, without Anderson's permission, I want to scream, and wish that the presumptuous SOB who wrote them had had his entire family's DNA wiped out in the Civil War.

My first introduction to Leroy Anderson was by listening to old 45 rpm records made of red vinyl from the 1950's that came from my grandmother's house.  The Leroy Anderson songs were conducted by the great Arthur Fiedler.

Thanks Carl, and I also found music I had forgotten, like The Waltzing Cat. Nice!

Chris, your should Google "Leroy Anderson" and listen to his music.  He wrote a lot of fun and breezy classical music.

That one is new to me, thanks, I like it!

Daniel, I SO wanted to reset that video to Leroy Anderson's "Typewriter Song"!

I didn't know dogs liked corn.

Tomorrow, I'm going to make some corn bread, with lots of fresh kernels in it.

Mmmm.  Looks like an ear of sweet corn.  That's the best.

Daniel, your summer meal sounds perfect.

Patricia, yes, there is nothing like the sublime, earthy smell of fresh corn.
