A Little Diddy About Red Buttons and My Mom
14 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

My Mom use to entertain her family of six that included her Mom and Dad, who simply adored her and her three teenage brother's 17, 16, 15 and one 13 year old sister when she was just a toddler singing to, "HO HO!" while patting her head as she imitated Red Buttons. Then she would suddenly stop to turn to her family raising her hands and wiggling her fingers above her head and say, "Strange things are happening!" Mom always spoke fondly of her favorite Red Buttons, recalling his wonderfully portrayed movies like, "The Longest Day" and "Hatari" and on and on. Red was one year older than Grandma, her Mom, and although she passed away in '89, he's just like losing another family member. Now June Allyson and Jan Murray passed away all within a week of each other as well, I see my Mom looking rather melancholy as she sees her childhood favorites all fading away.
