We were living in Folsom (near Sacramento) and departed early in the morning, so we could make the day of it. It was a cold and crisp day, but sunny and cloudless. We knew we were going to have a fantastic day. We got dressed in our best Sunday-go-to-Meetin’ clothes and jumped in the car and off we went (note – there were no seat belts : The world's first seat belt law was put in place in 1970, in the state of Victoria, Australia, making the wearing of a seat belt compulsory for drivers and front-seat passengers/Wikipedia).
Went to the cupboard
To get her poor doggie a bone,
When she got there
The cupboard was bare
So the poor little doggie had none.
