A Little Bitty Tear let me Down

I wonder if anybody else has mental jumps like this. I bet they do. Anyway, I was thinking this morning that I hadn’t done a post here in several days, and thought surely there is something I could put up. Then I thought about all the songs that I have enjoyed, several of which I have already shared, and some how the title “A little bitty…..” popped into my head.

I don’t know where it came from to hit me so clearly this morning, but I do remember the song and the singer. There was just something about him that was intriguing, always was. Funny thing is that this song and this look is about the only way I can think of Burl Ives. It is almost as though he were born this age and singing this song. But at any rate, I like the song.

I thought of him as a folk singer, but being introduced by Johnny Cash makes me think that he had country cred also.

having never seen a picture of Burl Ives looking anyway but as in the video, I googled to see if I could find on of him at a younger age. I found one which I have attached, he still looks more middle aged to me than young, but he doesn’t have the iconic beard.

  1. I know exactly what you mean about Burl Ives. I can remember way back seeing him in a film when my siblings and I were just kids – a musical I think it was. He sang a song called “Ugly Bug Ball.” That was my introduction to Burl Ives. Ever since that time, when ever I saw Mr Ives again, he always looked the same!

    1. I know he had to be young at some point, but interestingly, I never see a picture of him looking any other way either. Maybe I will google it and see if I can find a picture of him looking young and share it.

  2. I have only thought of Holiday music when I think of him…but you are right…country music hits the spot for him.
    As for post….start a cat thread….its been awhile since we had one of those. I have a few “cat” stories I have been meaning to share but have been preoccupied lately.

    1. I don’t know how to start a thread, other than to just post a blog. I might do that later today or tomorrow, and maybe feature all the cats I have had over the last 29 years with a bit of background on each.
