My Girlfriend, Sally


This particular song is part of one of my earliest memories.  I e-mailed my brother Mark this message a bit ago:  The song "Lay down Sally" by Eric Clapton was on the radio the other day.  Kade heard it too.  I do remember being at Pizza Hut with you, Dad and I guess Les and Miles waaay back when, and you were teasing me about the song.  We were playing it on the jukebox and you were saying Sally was my girlfriend.  lol

Mark replied:   It was PIZZA BOY at the Northside Mall, and it was Mom, Dad, Miles, Les, you and me.

What's interesting is that the song was released in November 1977.  Mother and Dad got divorced in 1978.  In my mind's eye, I can clearly see that jukebox.
