Happy Thanksgiving GLO Kindred Spirits!

Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for those of you who are reading this post.  I’ve been writing these posts for five years. I’m closing in on 1,000 posts. I adore my loyal readers. I appreciate you and I am grateful that some of you let other kindred spirits know about these posts. The search bar on the side has become my friend as I try to find posts I’ve written. It can help readers find posts of interest, too.

Yesterday was the date in 1899 upon which Hoagland “Hoagy” Carmichael was born. A proud Indiana University alumnus, he was a member of Kappa Sigma. He wrote many songs which are part of the Great American Songbook – Skylark, Georgia on My Mind, The Nearness of You, Heart and Soul, Stardust, and In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening. When I was researching a Sigma Nu chapter, I recall reading that he often played the piano at the Sigma Nu house, where future IU President, Herman Wells, was a member.
