Like Sunday Morning

CBS' Sunday Morning celebrated their 40th anniversary yesterday by profiling many of their past stories.  It was a fun look back and you can watch it here if you missed it (click here.)  

One of the segments featured Ted Kopel reciting this poem by way of tribute to Charles Osgood:

Since imitation is the best form of flattery, how's about I amend Ted's final verse as follows:

When so much has changed, there's a tendency to
Yearn for something familiar, something like an old shoe.
Something substantive, warm and reliable, for sure.
It's still here: Buzzy's  Country Store!
