33 1/3 methinks. Woody Guthrie - Arlos dad was more likely on the 78. But I could be wrong...

Wikipedia makes me look smart. City of New Orleans (song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Coming from a large family of musicians we would sit around and play records over and over trying to learn all the notes for the instruments, everyone but me as for whatever reason I have no musical bent. I tried singing but found I could carry a tune in a railroad tank car let alone a bucket.

Never the less "City" was one of our favorite family singalongs because we were right beside a very active railroad and we did a lot of family bonefires on a summers evening. I can remember Arlo's version very well (only copy we had) and was surprised that the Karaoke version has the words slightly screwed up. Ask me how I found out. heh heh heh.

Hello One and All Mutants,

First I want to say well done to all of you that answered correctly on the City of New Orleans, The song as far as I remember wasnt on a specific album, but on many different ones simply because it is one of those songs that evoke many different things to many people. For me it was the thought of adventure, of traveling without a real reason to, the true destination was the journey. And all of it before I had even considered living on wheels. I can remember when I was a kid and my grandpa Ripley had a 19' travel trailer, and my Dad outfitted it with a stool and a black tank, cause grandpa would boondock with it someplace near Apache Junction, no one in my family has been able to figure out the exact location of where he parked, ( ya know a lot of desert looks like a lot of other desert ). Any way long story short, the song came on the radio and it just struck me again how it explains what ya see and feel as you travel along, be it on a set of rails, a interstate, or a local two-lane. Just wanted to share a bit .....

Cheers !!!

Me thinks I may be able to fake a pic better than you can play pinochle?
Will require sunlight for the "prism" unless neighbor has enough rope lights.

You got that pre edit. I changed it to read 45, sorry but I forget the big hole had a smaller number.

As RVM2 - a small number mutant - I resemble that statement.

QUOTE=HerbnBarb;1816761]Morning Muteys! Here in North Texas it is a cold, wet and windy day which offers up the potential for freezing precip. So as I sit here in Jenny Journey, all snug and warm and nursing a hot cup of joe, reading the very well stated ponderances of Don and Steve, I am reminded why I consider myself fortunate for stumbling across this eclectic group of mutants. That which binds us together, while not unique to this group alone, is merely a vehicle on the rainbow to a much larger reward.

Though we have only managed one mini curiosity with Waynee and Earlene, from our perspective, it was like meeting family whom we knew so well, even though we were almost complete strangers at the time. What came out of that encounter was the big reward, a new set of friends that we hope will last a lifetime.

As we prepare to give thanks this next week, we can all add the blessing of new found friends, ones met and ones yet to meet. I for one cannot wait to see my buddy Wayne again and meet up with those of you who will be joining us at the GC@CL. We will no doubt develop more great friendships. What is great is what happens "after" the first GC. When we all leave there and continue on our journeys, we will probably be scattered all over this great country and wherever we go, hopefully there will be new mutant friends somewhere close by.

Here is to hoping our family continues to grow and no matter where the rainbow takes us, there we will be with friends close by![/QUOTE]

Thar ya go Herbie, gettin' all mushy on me. Sheesh. On the serious side it was a good meeting and we also hope the friendship lasts. Hope y'all come on down for Christmas.

My (Navy) dad used to play cribbage a lot while on board. He taught Mother, too, I think. They're both gone now, but I have his boards with the little storage hidey-hole underneath for the pegs. I believe all the pegs are still there, too.

Now all I need is for someone to teach me how to play. (Not that there aren't books and internet resources...those aren't as much fun as real people!) The GC@CL?

Gin rummy, now, I can do. Mother and I used to play sometimes to see which one of us was going to do the dinner dishes. How many hands we played just depended...

Hey Sue,

Cribbage is easy !!! if you can count to 15 and then on to at least 28 you can learn to play, and remember there are no bad cards .... just bad combinations. Dont worry there will be plenty of Cribbage teachers to teach at the GC@CL. Gin Rummy was another old time fav when I was growing up as well, but not as much as Eucher and Cribbage

Cheers !!!
