Message:  I was born when Mickey was 13 years old and by the time I was 13 I was already convinced he was pure magic. I remember being about 8 years old and hanging out at my Uncle Jay's house (Boyett) and listening to Mickey sing. He was pretty good at pulling coins and he did a little trick with his ears that would have me giggling like crazy. I remember a rope swing on a river at a family reunion way back in the early 1960s and now, so any years later, I can't remember if it was at Milton and Mamie's house or not... Mom would know. Mom is the 9th of 11 children born to Eugenie (my grandma, obviously). I've thought about Mickey a lot since losing my husband five months ago so I googled him the other night. I called Mom and had her listen over the phone to his video singing the trilogy. She cried. It brought back lots of memories. Check out the family photos album on my MySpace page to see 10 of Mickey's cousins, including J.W. & Bobbie. Keep the memory going. I plan to share his songs with my 4-yr-old grandson, Bradley, who wants to be a singer. He's lucky to have not only Mickey in his family tree but also Bob Wills, Gene Autrey and Micky Gilley ~ and he loves country music!
