I had a different title for this post, but changed it after describing the last photo in the sequence. I couldn’t help but start humming a retro TV tune to myself. You’ve been warned!
Come and listen to my story ’bout a man named Ju; a simple pioneer, who kept his family fed
And then one day he was growin’ some food
When up from the ground come a mountin’ of doo…soil, that is. Black gold. Earthy.
Well, the next thing you know, ol’ Ju’s a ‘farmer extraordinaire
His kinfolks said, ‘Ju, please give us a share!’ They said ‘Californey is the place we oughtta be’, so he and his family stayed near Beverly…Hills, that is.
Swimmin’ pools…movie stars.
