It's THAT time again!!!! Vintage Thingies Thursday over at Coloradolady and Thrifty Thursday at Bloggeritaville.
In honor of the fact that TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL for this year, I'm sharing these old music class books.
But before I do that, let me just reassure you that we teachers are thrilled to the soles of our feet to be FREE, FREE AT LAST!!!! (Go ahead, sing with me!)
A while back at some family gathering or other, these little school books were up for grabs, so I GRABBED.Because, people, I REMEMBER the day we used books like these several times a week at school. I don't think I ever had the chance to KEEP mine, they were turned in at the end of the school year just like any other book.
Evidently some students had to purchase their own music books. The two solid blue ones belonged to my uncle Chuck, my dad's brother-in-law. So, they're older than I am - - - by A LOT!!! Were he still living, Uncle Chuck would be past 90.The other two were evidently passed down amongst my cousins. These obviously belonged to my cousin, whom I affectionately call Albert Elmer, (another story - - - another post) and he apparently had to share them with:
I don't know how THEY used these books at school, but I remember in northern Wisconsin we used to have a radio program called "Let's Sing." It came on several times a week and the teacher tuned it in and we - - - - - you guessed it - - - - we SANG.
I'm still singin' - - - - this time it's "School's Out for the Summer!"
Aside: Hubby had to tell me whose song that was, if you'd have asked me I'd have said I didn't care for Alice Cooper - - - but I guess I DO LIKE THIS ONE!!!!
