THE WRONG BROTHERS

Friends, as much as I have enjoyed telling you in recent posts of the inspiring exploits of The Wright Brothers, inventors of the aeroplane, things don’t always go the Wright way in this woebegone world. As we all know, friends, the best laid planes of mice and men oft go a-why? Shot down happens. But, ever looking for new girls–make that, new worlds–to conquer, mice and men are not deterred. Onward and upward! Winners never quit, etc.:

But enough of such air-brained schemes. Let us put these proceedings on a higher plane:

Yes, my friends, the moral of the story is when you hit a downer, don’t be a frowner; and when you hit a sour note, don’t let it get your goat. Never despair — there’s music in the air. Go for it!

    You could revive that first contraption on the newsreel, the flapping bicycle, and repurpose it as a new kind of exercise machine easily, Sr. Muse. But you won’t. I won’t either. It’s why neither of us is rich.

    If I’m not mistaken, “that kid” is Dean’s daughter Deana, who made a number of TV appearances with her father. She was born in 1948, so I’m guessing the video dates from the late 1950s.

    Great stuff Muse. I remember these clips. I had a little trouble finding this one but it has my favorite early Aviator at the 56 second mark.
