Day 04 - A song that reminds you of someone

On The Road To Mandalay-Frank Sinatra

My great grandfather was known for singing this song at every family get-together, up through my bat mitzvah, which was the last great gathering of the Mishpocheh before he passed on.

Yes, I realize it's essentially an imperialistic, colonialist song (words by Rudyard Kipling.) But when Frank sings it and I think of Great Grandpa Harry, I don't honestly care.
