I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

Jim Reeves - Danny Boy

Jim Reeves was one of my dad's favorite singers. I remember him listening to Jim Reeves and also my dad's occasional imitations of "gentleman" Jim. I acquired a taste for Reeves' music and now it remains a special connection with my late father. If my dad were still alive he'd be 82. He's been gone over 9 years. This was one of his favorites and mine too.
