patsy ann

In 1934 Juneau, Alaska's mayor dubbed a prominent citizen the city's "official greeter." This citizen had been greeting all the ships at wharfside for years, even though she was deaf. In a way that was all right, since she couldn't talk, either -- Patsy Ann was a bull terrier.

After a visit to Juneau on a cruise ten years ago, I wrote a song about Patsy Ann. You can hear it on www.Qmcorp.net/bbsongs/mp3_files/patsy_ann5.mp3. Comments appreciated!
