So Strange Yesterday I was compelled to listen to his old albums and have a happy hawain DAy.. I am glad I smiled yesterday and that in some ironic weird way maybe remembered old nostalgic songs with fondness as he passed on.. I was just now surprised to see this artical while trying to research the Giant Squid!..I am sending out loving thoughts and prayers to his family and all of those he touched..In rememberance to Don And Tiny bubbles which have preoccupied my head for weeks now... Fairwell

 Have you never heard "Tiny Bubbles" It was way back Neily.. Very famous fellow from Hawaii! He sang this song, made it famous!


 words & music by Leon Pober



Tiny bubbles (tiny bubbles)
In the wine (in the wine)
Make me happy (make me happy)
Make me feel fine (make me feel fine)


Tiny bubbles (tiny bubbles)
Make me warm all over
With a feeling that I'm gonna
Love you till the end of time


So here's to the golden moon
And here's to the silver sea
And mostly here's a toast
To you and me


So here's to the ginger lei
I give to you today
And here's a kiss
That will not fade away

Oh dear !!..........With the deepest of respect for the wonder that was this Hawaiian artist I have to say that after hearing the first few bars of 'Tiny Bubbles' I really could not bring myself to listen to more than ten seconds worth......and even then I was pushing it !!.....sorry !!!
