Oh yes, I do remember them. I've always liked their songs too. Of course, I grew up with the K-trio!!

This is so very interesting.

BTW...how is your husband doing? Hope he's recovering nicely.

An interesting background of this song. I remember it well but had no idea about actual meaning. Nice shot of this park sign.
