Harbor Bluffs Concert in the Park, part 2. Upon seeing this video, Pat's comment was "well, the old grey mare ain't what she used to be". Regardless, the audience, briefly transported to another era, loved it!
Charlie Bornemann, gifted trombone man who played with The Dukes of Dixieland, gave Pat the title, and she wrote this song around it.

Thrifty lady, or as Pat puts it, "I think I was born without the 'shopping gene', since I hate buying clothes!"
Pat &Jack entered the S.S. Norway's Talent Contest just to have a chance to play and have some fun. This was the fateful and tragic last cruise for this magnificent ship, as one of the boilers - No. 13! - exploded when they returned to port on May 25, 2003, killing and injuring many of the crew.
