    What's the funniest thing you brought to school for Show & Tell? I brought the 45 rpm for Neil Diamond's "Cracklin' Rosie." Still like that song.

    How about you? Can you remember something you brought in?

    Holy cow, just found out the meaning of this song, written by Diamond himself. It's about wine! From Wikipedia:

    Married to a catchy and dynamic melody and arrangement, the lyrics suggested to some a devotion to a woman of the night:

    Oh, I love my Rosie child —
    You got the way to make me happy.
    You and me, we go in style ...
    Cracklin' Rose, you're a store bought woman
    You make me sing like a guitar hummin' ...

    But in actuality, Cracklin' Rosie is a type of wine drunk by a native Canadian tribe that Diamond had visited in Canada. Apparently the tribe had more men than women. Cracklin' Rosie was the nickname they used for their homemade alcoholic brew, which the single men, who did not have dates, would sit around the fire and drink together.

    In terms of wine itself, the title is seen to refer to (misspelled) rosé wine which is "crackling" - a U.S. term equivalent to pétillant or lightly sparkling.[3] A Crackling Rosé is produced by, for example, Paul Masson Vineyards and Beckett's Flat.

    The only successful show & tell I ever had was when I took my dog. Everybody loves dogs. The problem was that after that, the dog knew the way to my kindergarden. He had to be tied up for the rest of the time we lived in that house, whenever I was gone, or he would dig under the fence and show up at my school.

    I would usually forget about show and tell so I'd have to spend my recess trying to pick something out of my bag or my pocket or I'd have to find a rock and try to talk it up icon_redface.gif lol

    One year I brought in a signed photo of my uncle's southern rock band, Wes Reo and the Country Men. Played in NC, Cape Hatteras. I'm certain you've heard of them. icon_wink.gif My uncle played drums. ;-)

    WOW! I just found that photo online in some recordrelics site. My uncle RW is on the right.

    I brought a brick to school, stood up vertically and cracked it with a speed break.

    This is great! Still laughing. I hope you went into politics or public relations.

    In first grade I brought in "Tweetie" record. Later moved to tadpoles.
