Dear Mr. Keillor, My wife

March 4, 2004 |

Dear Mr. Keillor,
My wife and I took our mothers to the show at the Wang Center in Boston. We all had a great time, especially my mother who said "it was the kind of thing you just didn't want to end." She first went to the Wang when it was a movie theater in the 30's and the Dorsey band floated up from beneath the floor to play before the movie.

I have a little poem for you; it rhymes (if you are from Boston):

Sis-boom bah, I bought a brand new car,
I've been busy saving fot it, cause I loved it when I saw it
So finish up your soda, and I'll rev up the motor,
We'll cruise the scenic vista from Boston out to Worcester
And there we'll find my sister,
We'll go out and have a pizza
after everybody meets her.

Jim P.

Jim,
I didn't get into the parts of Boston where the real accent lives ---- just a downtown hotel and Cambridge where they all talk through their noses ----- so I'm glad to hear that it still exists.
