You’ll Never Know (1943) Unfamiliar with this week’s tune?

wednesday hodgepodge: 422

1. Besides the flag, tell us about something red, something white and something blue from your weekend.  The tie on the cover of the book I binge-read this weekend is red, white, and blue… all in one! And it was such a great book, a tangled thriller. The best kind… one where there’s just no […]
