Dad: Sweet Old-Fashioned Girl     (May 2006)

Q:   BRUCE:   My dad has performed for years, mainly entertaining residents at nursing homes doing a mini-minstrel show. He lip-synchs to songs by Al Jolson, Jimmy Durante and Eddie Cantor. As a long-standing part of his act, he lip-synchs to your record of "A Sweet Old Fashioned Girl." He dresses up as a woman for this part -- and it's not the most attractive sight you've ever seen, for sure! It's easily one of the funniest parts of his show and I thought you might get a kick out of hearing about it. I am 40 years old. I did a search and found the Teresa Brewer Center site. Now I know what the real sweet, old-fashioned girl looks like. Skoobie-doo!

A:  TERESA:   "Thanks, Bruce, I loved your note! I think it's wonderful that your father is entertaining those who live in nursing homes. What a nice thing to do. I'd like to give him a hug."
