My friend Jane, over at Winds of Change blogspot, has asked me to take part in a favourite song meme. Well, it didn't take too long for me to put my thinking cap on as it was a choice of two hot favourites, and this one won:
I fear I have totally given my age away now, but what the heck! It brings back SO many memories of going dancing at the Royal Pier in Southampton, and this often being the last slow number, and the lights shining on the mirrored ball which reflected round the dance floor, and Manhattan perfume, mini skirts (I was a size EIGHT then, jeepers!), pale tights, Mods and Rockers, scooters with chrome, parkas, sending lads to the bar for illicit Vodka and Limes, a smudge of grey eyeshadow and a lipstick called The Palest (I thought mascara was only for tarts!!) Then walking up the High Street to catch the Last Bus Home (at just gone 11 p.m.)
Now, to think of a few lovely people who might like to take part (though you don't HAVE to). The one who immediately springs to mind is my musical mate Al over at his BLOG,
crivens, jings and help ma blog. He has a wide and eclectic taste in music. . .
Then there is another good friend at Mornings Minion. She's busy packing at the moment, but if you can spare a moment to take part, that would be lovely.
To have a younger input than me, perhaps Preseli Mags might join us.
If you are not too busy Rowan, would you like to join in? Rowan's blog is Circle of the Year.
Last but not least, I am sure Snowgoosey has a favourite tune.
If you are to busy to join in, I understand.
For once, I am stuck for a suitable photo to accompany this too!
Today we have had sunshine, and I have gardened - now my body is protesting at stretching over and pulling out half a mile of grass runners from the island bed in the stable yard . . .
