  • “…for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth;…” Genesis 8:21b
  • In the years 50's I like very, very, very much to listen this song Wheel of Fortune. It told me some thing that I feel.

In the same league with her good friends Dinah Washington and Patsy Cline - personally I think she is one of the greatest pop singers ever.If you love her hit singles, I strongly recommend her gospel album "I Hear A Word" - its magnificent. Her fans were Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday, Count Basie and Elvis Presley - go figure.

I opened it and a found Kay Starr smiling beautifully and laughing in a winter coat and white leather gloves, a snowball in poised and ready in her hand. The remnants of the last snowball lingering on the black door.
  • Love her cover of Waitin' for the Man
