Remembering Miss Snickers!

Miss Snickers friend Charlie asked his Mama Alice to create this sweet memorial slideshow for her, and sing "You Are Wonderful Tonight." - it's a real tear jerker...

Elvis - Suspicious Minds!

Something is not quite right in my world!
Those who know me well may guess who's the cause of this...

Gerry Rafferty - Bakers Street!

My post for today's Saturday Photo Hunt's prompt Music, reminded me of this 1970's track.
As I only have it on vinyl, I rarely listen to 'Bakers Street' now but I still think it's a great song & I love the saxaphone, and this video is very well put together...

We Shall Remember Them!

'In Flanders Fields', is perhaps the most famous poem from WWI, is by Canadian Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.
A doctor in charge of a field hospital, he saw his friend killed during the Second Battle of Ypres, he is reputed to have written the poem the very next day in 1915.
Poppies would have been a familar sight to him, as they grew in great numbers in the spoiled soil of the battlefields & in the cemeteries of Flanders.
The second poem in the video, is a well known excerpt from 'For the Fallen' by Laurence Binyon.

Bobby Goldsboro - Honey!

As today is my late Mother's birthday, a very favourite song of hers from 1968...

It's deeply sentimental lyrics always made tears prick our eyes when we listened to 'Honey' together, and it does even more so now I listen alone.
