Friday Happy Feet

Ella Mae Morse isn’t as well remembered today as other singers from the swing era, but she ought to be. Born in Mansfield, Texas, Ella was a slender little thing with a great set of pipes who teamed up with Freddie Slack and his orchestra in the 1940’s for a string of hits. Here she is with Freddie and the boys performing “Cow Cow Boogie”.

It reminds me of Flat-Foot Floogie with the Floy-Floy (?) and even the three little fishes.

I've spent several months in Texas and it's Good Country. The folks as bold as brass and don't kiss arse.
