The Sounds of Summer- Day 72 of 95- “Sister Mary Elephant” by Cheech and Chong. Back in the day when I was in school I think for the most part school began the Tuesday after Labor Day. Maybe my memory is playing tricks on me but I can remember being depressed on Labor Day because school started the next day. Of course the obligatory assignment that first week back in English/ Language Arts class would be to write an essay on how you spent your summer vacation. We didn’t get two months though to complete the assignment. “Sister Mary Elephant” peaked at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1974.
