Statler Brothers

Countin' flowers on the wall 
That don't bother me at all
Playin' solitare till dawn 
With a deck of fifty-one
Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
Now don't tell me I've nothing to do

(The Statler Brothers single, "Flowers on the Wall," was released in 1965.  It made it to #4 on the Billboard "Hot 100" chart and #2 on the "Hot Country Singles" chart.  Almost 30 years later, the song was featured in the Pulp Fiction soundtrack.  I hadn't thought about the song in years, but recently remembered that it was a favorite of an old friend -- I hope he will see this post.)
