Golly, I sure remember
this and Texaco hour.
I have Kicked the Habit.
I really miss the lunch bars and soda fountains.
I was Supervisor, we were on the 3rd floor.
The Hotel was on Fire, we were the last ones out.
Everyone cheered. My girlfriend's fellow took us for a drink
and GAVE us all a carton of Kool cigarettes. Said,"it
keeps weight off and calms you down."
and" I remember Mama"
Liz and Hilton
my favorites were:
Joni James-Why don't you believe me
Teresa Brewer-Music, Music
Rosemary Cloony- Hey There
Doris Day-Secret Love
Patti Page- Harbor Lights
Perry Como- Wanted
LesPaul&Mary Ford-How High the moon
Cordettes MR Sandman
Tommy Edwards, Andy Williams, Dean Martin to name a few. I know you guys
have never heard of these singers.
Oh! that secretarial school
I know What's that?
Jobs like switchboard,
and typing are GONE.
You have to keep reinventing
your career. I believe in progress,
but now the new robot with a brain? we can bite the dust.
You won't see this again.
My new life..here it is
with this note I'll sign off.. Have a Wonderful New Year 2015 WOW!

Lauderdale, Florida. Also she exhibited her work in North Carolina, the Florida Keys, and at the Childers Art Gallery on Las Olas Blvd (Ft. Lauderdale). Yvonne won the prestigious 'Hortt Art Competition Award' at the Museum of Ft.Lauderdale, Florida. This work of art remained on display for several months at the Museum. Over the years Yvonne has entered many competitions winning countless blue ribbons. A trip to Paris, and a stay in Monmarte where she spent time with a few choice artist's changed her views toward her own art work. Art is truly an expression of experience and love to her. She likes her work to show a moment in time or tell a story. To know more about Yvonne Leyden
