Songs for Colleen and Duke

Colleen Boulden Casper’s favorite song was “My Blue Heaven,” according to son Scotty.  “She sang this song all the time and she had a beautiful soprano voice.  Dad’s favorite song (Duke Casper):  “Money, Marbles and Chalk.”  He sang this song all the time.  He didn’t have much of a voice, but he enjoyed belting this baby out.  Dad got his back broken in the mine and he shrunk so much that mom ended up being taller than him.  I don’t know whether you knew this, but they were amazing dancers.  When we went out to nightclubs everybody would stop dancing and just stand there and watch them … and this was even after they got long in the tooth.”

    Thank you for posting Aunt Colleen’s favorite song! I loved to hear her sing. A family gathering was always more fun when Aunt Colleen was there!
