My Cup Runneth Over...

Was listening to Dennis Prager's radio show this morning and there was a special guest on: Ed Ames. It was refreshing to hear a celebrity from Hollyweird talking conservative values. The man still has that fabulous deep voice that he had many years ago while singing with the Ames Brothers and later, on his own. I remember several of his songs from when I was young, among them Try To Remember, Mariah, I Believe, My Cup Runneth Over With Love , Who Will Answer, Mary In The Morning and my H.S. Class of '68 class song The Impossible Dream . Mr. Ames is not only a noted singer, but also an actor on screen and Broadway. Ahhh, such good memories. Every Christmas when I get out our Christmas tapes and Cd's I get to listen to Ed Ames for a full month. If you have never heard Mr. Ames sing, just click on some of the songs I have listed above and be prepared to be delighted.

Blessings to all who pass this way. love, Cassie

ps-This post is dedicated to my husband, Patrick. Happy Early Valentine's Day honey!

Mr. Ames also played Daniel Boone's sidekick, Mingo, on the Fess Parker TV show. Favorite Ames Bros. song: "The Naughty Lady of Shady Lane".

Happy Valentine's Day to you too, Cassie.

I just saw Ed Ames on a show last week - he played Mingo on the Daniel Boone series. What a wonderful, talented, articulate man he is. I've always been a big fan.

I know the name, but not specifically him singing. Tho'I remember the songs too. If it was the 60's we were just moving to Canada from England and all wrapped up in college studies, so didn't listen to the radio much -- not sure if we even had a radio and certainly didn't have a TV. Money was short. By the mid sixties, and further on, was the birth of our two boys. It was a busy decade for us!

Nice post, Cassie. I haven't heard "Try to Remember" for a long time!
I also graduated in '68.
