My color email experiments are over for a while.  Some of you receive the
color, while others do not.  It was my mistake to send duplicate messages.
I will not send out HTML any more.  Now at least I know what the "send
both" box refers to, and I unclicked that option.

Thanks to everyone who sent in their version of the donut
song.  I am sharing two versions, representative of the
other variations ----

Here's the lyrics of the song Julie requested as I learned it from my
father; I sing it to my own kids to the tune "Turkey in the straw":
Well, I walked around the corner, and I walked around the block
And I walked right into a donut shop.
And I picked up a donut, and I licked off the grease,
And handed to the lady a five-cent piece.
Well, she looked at the donut and she looked at me
And she said, "This nickel is no good, you see"
It's got a hole through the middle and it goes right through:
"But lady, there's a hole in the donut too!"
Thanks for the donut, you bet!
Thanks for the donut. Good bye!

Nick, Here are the words to the
donut song that Julie asks about:

I walked to Cincinnati
And I walked down the block
And I walked right in to
A donut shop
And I pulled me a donut
Out of the grease
And I gave the lady
My five cent piece

She looked at the nickel
And she looked at me
And she said "this nickel
Isn't good enough for me
It's got a hole in the middle
All the way through"
And I said "Well the donut's
Got one too"

>Does anyone remember Crabby Appleton?
>   (He was rotten to the core.)  I remember
>   the character, but not what show he was on.

	The consensus is that Crabby was on the
	Tom Terrific cartoons, shown by Captain
	Kangaroo.  But there are other opinions:

Crabby Appleton was the arch villan on the Underdog show. You can still see
it occassionally on Nickelodean.

Crabby Appleton was an elderly man on the Mickey Mouse Club adventures with
Spin and Marty. He was a grouchy man in a big house. I think they may still
have it on the reruns.  I was watching the other night and my grandson
asked why it was all in gray! So glad we live in color now.

I remember Crabby Appleton!  He was the cartoon character in the continuing
series on the Rocky and Bulwinkle show.  It was sort of a  "Perils of
Pauline" series that concerned a lovely girl [Nell], who was frequently
tied to a railroad track (by Crabby Appleton), only to be saved by the
Canadian Mounties character [Dudley DoRight]!

Wasn't Crabby Appleton the villain on the Tom Terrific cartoon that was on
Captain Kangaroo?

Wasn't Crabby Appleton on the Captain Kangaroo show?

It was called "Tom Terrific".

Crabby Appleton was on the cartoon  "Tom Terrific."  Tom could turn himself
into anything he wanted. ("If you see a rocket blast, a diesel train go
roaring past, a bumble bee, a little flea - it's meee!")  His sidekick was
Mighty Manfred the Wonder Dog, a huge and non-too-bright canine.

For GG who inquired about Crabby Appleton - He was the Arch-Enemy of Our
Hero Tom Terrific!!!!  (Remember how Tom wore an upside down funnel for a
hat?  Remember his faithful dog Mighty Manfred??)  I watched The Adventures
of Tom Terrific as part of The Captain Kangaroo Show!!!  (Remember the
Magic Drawing Board?!)
