Thread Name: nursery rhymes-Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
Subject: RE: Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
Yes, Margarita, do it! I still read them to my kids, long distance, once in a great while and they are 22, 25, & 29! Of course, they probably are just indulging the "old girl", ya know?**BG**

WW: my dad was in the oilfields, too and I did gain just as much literary education from him as mom. You may have read before in another thread that he and his dad, a Colorado rancher, used to talk back & forth only in poetry while working. His capacity to memorise still just amazes me.

Joe, thanks for startingthis thread. It's really wonderful.
