Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree," the very touching song, became a tune hummed and sung at that time. Yesterday I noticed that sheet music on my piano, beckoning me to sit down at the keyboard and peck out the melody, and start singing these now familiar words. Can you imagine a sol- dier-prisoner seeing the sight of I00 yellow ribbons around an old oak tree? I think I should go out in our front yard -- to one of our (200- year old) oak trees and try to measure how many yards of yel- low ribbon it would take to go around it, just one time. I"m sure if I used yellow ribbons on it I would outshine all my neigh- bars on Hoke's Mill or Rodger's Road. Now, don't get excited. I won't try that, l'm safe in saying our wise old oak has held many a wise old owl who has heard this little ditty many times. The wise old owl sat in the oak, the more he saw the less he spoke.
