Carly Connection ! …

What do these two books have in common with Carly Simon ?

“Doctor Dan The Bandage Man” was published in 1950 by Simon & Schuster the publishing house started by Carly’s father, Richard Simon.

From what I understand, the little girl in the book is named Carly for Carly Simon.  One of the interesting things about this book that makes it so popular is the addition of 6 Band-Aids … all of which have somehow disappeared from my book.

This book “Basket Full of Rhymes” sung by Carly Simon was published in 2000.  Nursery rhymes like ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’… ‘Moses Supposes’… ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’ and ‘Lavender Blue’ have never sounded so soothing.

Carly and her talented son, Ben Taylor, have a dream up for auction at today’s Possible Dreams Auction in Ocean Park in Oak Bluffs. CLICK HERE to see what their dream, #14 is.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
