“[[[[[ Sent Up the River ]]]]”


Description from Eeka Mouse: When I was a little girl growing up in St. Louis, I thought the phrase 'they're sending him up the river' (slang for sending to prison) meant he was being sent to Chicago. Now I understand it comes from sending someone up the Hudson from NYC to SingSing Prison in Ossining NY, but I can't help but think of our chickie jailbirds in...CHICAGO!

    I just have to put this in my Favs! Not only is this stunning, but you bring me fond memories. When my girls were small and I had a bit of time to my self I would tell my Mom that I escaped from singsing. I thought it was in China somewhere for years!
