I woke up with a new memory of Annie running through my head. It will probably be running through my head the rest of the day.
Annie, Annie, bo banny
Banana fanna fo fanny
Me mi mo manny
The Name Game written and recorded by Shirley Ellis was first released in 1964. Annie loved it when we sang it to her. I had forgotten. And I might wish later today that I’d never remembered.
In case you can’t recall the tune, here’s the video. Click it at your own risk.
I decided to give away three books in honor of Annie’s birthday. I drew the winner’s names this morning and will be posting them on my Christine M Grote Facebook page once I have confirmation from the winners. (If you didn’t get a message from me on Facebook today, it probably means you didn’t win.) If you haven’t yet “liked” my Facebook author page, it would be great if you could spare a minute and go over there to click the “Like” button on the top of the page. I make shorter announcements and may have other contests over there later on.
