Train - You Can Finally Meet My Mom


This would be the late Clevon Little, the "Sheriff in Blazing Saddles" 


Heard this for the first time today and it resonated with me. My sweets never met my mom and I met her's when she was completely overcome with Alzheimer's.  Her mom was not there.

My mom would have adored her and she would have loved my mom.

I would have loved to know the live and kicking Barbara Atwell Riley. By what I've heard, she lived and kicked alright.

So you see why I liked this song immediately?   Enjoy.  Pat Monahan is a wonderful talent.
