The song “Thanks for the Memory” won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, in the 1938 film The Big Broadcast of 1938 by Bob Hope and Shirley Ross, and became Hope’s signature tune.
So, what does Bob Hope and his song have to do with my thoughts about thanks?
What do the lyrics of the song have to do with my memories?
Unless I have notes, most of my octogenarian memories are triggered by current events or comments about past events.
So, on this 2022 Thanksgiving day, I’m most thankful my octogenarian memories can still be triggered by family and friends for whom I am always thankful.
