Mr. Ed

In the midst of Holy Week prep, I turned to Iowa Public Radio and heard a string orchestra with classical guitar soloist playing variations on "A horse is a horse, of course of course..." from that way-back-when, black-and-white TV show, Mr. Ed.

At first I thought I imagined the theme, but then the theme itself came back clearly, and more variations followed. The music successfully entertained and removed me (for at least several minutes) from some weighty concerns about people with whom I've sat this week. Three cheers for Public Radio, and the creativity it offers -- even in the midst of its Spring fund drive.

Let me know if you find variations on "Leave it to Beaver"!
