D' Cats--

You are the BEST!!! VicTim has a 1-hour weekly gig at the local center for the mentally retarded, and we're always on the lookout for songs that the "kids" can do. "If you're happy and you know it" and "old McDonald" "camptown races DOO DAH" are BIG favorites...we've now (after a year and half) got them singing parts of "crawdad" and "she'll be comin' round the mountain" and "I've been workin' on the rr".

The "kids" are a wonderful audience, and we toss in some of our own material or covers that we're rehearsing from time to time for their attendants/family members, and they seem to have a good time too. It's a *fun* gig!
