"...I'm Popeye, the Sailor Man!" *TOOT* *TOOT*

Great news for Popeye fans! There is a fantastic Popeye website that a fan like myself has put online, and I want to share it with you, dear reader, whoever you are.

Popeye will always have a special place in my heart because of my Dad.


"Button Up Your Overcoat..."

Mrs. Isley was the wife to the agent at the depot in Noyes where my Dad worked. She was also a school teacher. She was my Kindergarten teacher.

The things I remember about Kindergarten are:

- Mrs. Isley singing Button Up Your Overcoat and encouraging us to sing along

- Learning the letter U's "short" sound - she taught us by using the example of what happened when you tried to lift a bucket full of sand - "...ugh" She had me demonstrate it in front of the class
