    Does this mean he’s not going to give him the bird?

    I remember the Polio shots back in the ‘50s. Not to be confused with Small Pox vaccination (Cow Pox) or the TB tests on the forearm. I receive a least one shot (Salk vaccine) at school and later orally on a sugar cube (Sabin vaccine) at some big room (high school gym?). As kids we knew we could get Polio from stagnate water _"don’t go near that. That’s POLIO water."_

    Bird fetishes are about as rare as pet Birds of Paradise, so a correlation seems logical in some rarefied way….

    President Roosevelt’s involvement with the March of Dimes is the reason his profile is on the dime and not some other coin:

    I vaguely remember taking the Sabin vaccine when I was five, in 1960. My other memories of polio are equally vague: seeing a few people walking with braces and canes, and hearing about iron lungs.

    as a child I had a slight case of polio in my left leg (they never figured out where I contracted it), and was later given both the vaccine shots, and then sugar cubes (and yes, in the gym with everyone else lined up for their dose). but then, I’m old enough to also remember having to stuff myself under my school desk at the sound of sirens.

    @blog: “Will they survive the ’70’s?” I saw john Mayall this July, & he’s still pretty fit! Johnny Winter is showing his age, but still plays great. Saw him a couple of years ago…

    I couldn’t play your link for this, so I reposted it for whomever else had this problem (I had problems with YouTube yesterday, so the problem could be on my end).


    May The Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose


    I had never heard of this song or Little Jimmy Dickens. (Was this the version you posted?)

    One of those horrid childhood images that remain seared into my brain is that of visiting a 1st grade classmate in the hospital while she was confined in that great green monster called an iron lung !
    The fear of polio was very real. I can’t remember what grade I was in when the Salk vaccine first came out but I know we all gratefully braved the needle.

    I’m very picky about whom I allow to scratch and sniff my bird of paradise. … I guess they’re breaking up. So sad.
