jeanette and nelson
nothing sweeter, more serene
a lost innocence

Sweethearts of the 30s –
We old timers can’t forget them
And when they sing together
We weep.
          Jeanette McDonald
              Nelson Eddy

    A wonderful tribute to this musical pair, Daver. I'm going to look online to see if I can find their music. I did find them on youtube.:) Keep well, love, Mikki
