Doris Day- A bushel and a peck

Don't you just love love love Doris Day! She was so beautiful with fresh pretty skin and sparkling blue eyes! I remember as a little girl getting my first record player and the first album was Doris Day's recordings and another one of Dean Martin. To this day, I love to hear both of them sing!!
My mother used to say to me whenever I would kiss her good-bye to leave the house, "I love you, a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!" :) I did not realize where this little saying originated from....just thought my mom made it up, I heard it for so long. But one day a couple of months ago, I was searching the you-tube for Doris Day songs and came across this little clip! It is so precious to me....I would love to hear my mom say again...."I love you, a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!" Just one more time! Well, Doris, you are just going to have to do! Doris does put a smile on my face though! I loved that era when she was a "movie star"...everything was so wholesome then!
Sweet memories! Do you have a special memory of the way your mother said good-bye to you as you left the house when you still lived at home? No matter what comes, you will always have your memories!
Hugs, Carolyn

What a sweet memory you have here of your mother. The song is so cute. I loved The Glass Bottom Boat. I was fascinated with having one!
