PS Yes, RE, this member of KC was particularly well-received 'down there'.

Well, perhaps not at 6!  On the other hand, I remember the B-side to this 45 as well - England Swings.  Go figure what catches the ear/mind of a child...

England swings like a pendulum do,
Bobbies on bicycles, two by two,
Westminster Abbey the tower of Big Ben,
The rosy red cheeks of the little children.

Now, if you huff and puff and you fina'lly save enough
Money up to take your family on a trip across the sea,
Take a tip before you take your trip; let me tell you where to go,
Go to En-ge-land, Oh;

Mama's old pajamas and your papa's mustache,
Falling out the window sill, frolic in the grass,
Tryin' to mock the way they talk fun but all in vain,
Gaping at the dapper men with derby hats and canes

My music teacher/choir director in Jr. High School was also the assistant organist at my church....did me the incredible favor of playing "Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida" during class. Changed my life though it didn't help him keep his job.

 

And back to the original topic....Trump and Rosie O'Donnell both need to shut the hell up.

Nothing like tooting ones own "horn", eh John?

 

I loved Trump's comments about that piece of **** Rosie!  He's a load, too, but she bugs the hell out of me..........."The View" is a cancer!

"There once was a man from Nantucket..."

You know the rest of the poem, right?

Dear Ivor Wolfhound could probably recite 'There was a young fellow from Kent'
I think it has a similar storyline to the Nantucket Limerick.

I was just reading about the original post of this thread,regarding sweet Tara.
She will spend Christmas in rehab,doing the menial duties that bring us back down to earth with a bump. The behaviour that got her to that place sounds remarkably
similar to my own, so I totally empathise ,and wish that her God grant her the courage and strength that she will need over the coming weeks,and for the rest of her lovely life. My own spell in that place came during the middle of summer, and it may seem cruel for this to happen at Christmas,but it really doesn't matter 'when', the plain fact is that it's another shot at your life,Tara, and I'm sure all of the great people on this site (and that includes you,and me,Geno) wish you the beautiful life you truly deserve.

Thank you Johan for bringing this to our attention.  Getting over any kind of addiction, chemical or otherwise, is hard work and it does cause you to go into some deep, dark places in your life and bring back some pain that you thought you were over.  As Steve Miller said, "You've got to go through hell before you can get to heaven" So my heart goes out to anyone that has the courage to face their demons.  God bless.

Still can't post on your blog,Signor.G- guess I'll have to blow my anonymity-btw,nice pics of Lisa --now, that's what we Brits do on Boxing Day.
Mahler popped in today,looking for a shelter from the icy blast,and a tasty morsel .
The boy Dylan--my interpreter for all German things 'street' and laddish--informed me that--although the word literally means 'painter', of course--'Mahler' also means 'skidmark'.
Another day,another diamond.
