I've always thought it was about Sherman's brutal march through Georgia - either that or maybe it's about a car ride with an aged hooker named Dixie.

Maybe through Georgia.

Joan: beautiful voice. Hers was the very first concert I ever attended.

One day, I hope someone will explain "Dixie" to me - in simple words I can understand, 'for I am a bear of very little brain'.
And the wind's getting up.
Batten down the hatches, lads, we're in for another blow!

This does a decent job of explaining the lyrics.

Basically, it's about the final death throes of the Confederacy.

I was never really a great Andy Williams fan, but I think this one is pretty damn good.

I've never been into Country Western but I can't help but like this song since Connie Smith is the only music star I've ever been naked with. (She was from my hometown and was my babysitter when I was still in diapers!)

Going back to HP's request to find out why "Dixie."

HP, it's after the second name in the Mason-Dixon Line, the survey that separated Maryland and Virginia from Pennsylvania and Delaware, and ultimately came to be the border between the slaveholding South and the Industrial North.

But you should know it anyway, HP; Jeremiah Dixon was a countryman of yours.

He wasn't known by my family. . . . . [ ]
I've discovered something about my mirror lens. Given a decent platform, I can take pictures of dickiebirds !

I thought all you Brits knew each other. Just like on this side of the Pond. Whenever I meet an American, I'm told of some Canuck he knows, and asked if I know him too.

The next time that happens just do this. First, pause as if deep thought for a moment, and then with a totally straight face, say:

"I don't think so. Does he go to the Tuesday meetings or the Thursday ones?"

I had that sort of experience when I was in the RAF: ("I had a mate in Singapore a few years ago; name of Smudger Smith. You know him ?")

'Ah. Yes. Old Smudger Smith, eh? There's a name from the past. I wonder what became of him. Now that I come to think about it, I didn't even get a Christmas card from old Smudger last year.'

Isn't Smudger related to Kilroy?

Ask HP. It's some friend-of-a-friend of his.

'Friend of a friend' reminds me of 'a copy of a copy of a copy of Dior' - except I can't remember whose dress that was.

My father was in a civilian department of the Admiralty for most of my life until he retired.

When I started in the UK Civil Service, I too was in a civilian department of the Admiralty. (I think it was a fix!). My department was parallel to his. Because my real surname is unusual it was obvious that I was a relation of my father. Everywhere I was posted people would say "Are you A****'s son?".

It could be useful. It could also be embarrassing. After four years I left for another larger department not connected with the Admiralty.

The questions changed to "Are you C****'s son?"

I wasn't. C was my father's older brother and I was his nephew.

When I married? The question became "Are you F****'s son-in-law?".

I left the Civil Service and the questions stopped. But while I was in the Civil Service more people knew of me than I knew.
