Don't Touch My Tomatoes - Josephine Baker

While getting out in the humid heat of our yard,
to pick little cherry tomatoes, I thought this
would be nice to share, for those of you
who might not be aware of Ms. Baker.

If It Don't Fit Don't Force It - Barrelhouse Annie & Lil Johnson

There's so much work to do around the house, but it's too hot.
At least, I think that's what this song is about.
I could be wrong.

A:You know how life is, sometimes one can be quite slow, and perhaps I didn't hear what you heard ; )
Alas, I didn't say what kind of tomatoes, now did I????

Last year I visited her chateau (Les Milandes) in France. A great trip for everyone who loves her work, with a exhibition of her belongings, like the famous banana-skirt. [url=http://www.milandes.com]Milandes[/url]

W: She even looked excellent "without" the banana skirt ; )

B: There are so very many of these old songs.
Most, pretty good for the time period and still sound good today! ; )
