"One more fight and I'll be history" Great line there!

Lilith, problem solved!

Can you put a permanent link to your previous post please, and replace the snake pic...;0)

Oh No, Scrobs! I couldn't bear to have my actual photo next to my comments all over t'internet...you'll just have to download it and save it as a desktop;-)

This is a great song when you're angry. Teenage Wrath. Love it.

Lilith; did you ever hear this song by Peter Paul and Mary?

"The Great Mandella (Wheel of life)"?

I've only just discovered how deep and angry it really was, and I've had it in my head for over forty years!

Lilith said...

Yes, just given it a listen Scrobs. Their gentle presentation is deceptive. The P,P and M song that has been in my head for 40 years is Puff the Magic Dragon!!!

Ooooooh Lilith...

Puff...! So you really believed all that stuff about 'pot' then... ;0)

My all time favourite is 'Early morning rain', which I can still play (nearly) properly, and used to sing in the odd pub soon after they recorded it!

Another of their old tunes was 'Old coat', which I can remember my sister playing one morning while I nursed an enormous hangover...

I've recently been remembering 'Blue' by Joni Mitchel was it?

I was going to dedicate a song to Gordo but he's not dead yet, so it seemed inappropriate. Still, I have a few large staples left. How's puppy??? more pictures please!

My favorite Ralph Stanley song is Two Coats, Scroblene.

You know, I have just realised how deeply corrupted I was at a core level by P,P and Mary. PP and M made me who I am. I have to assimilate this new information.

Gordo the Puppet he looks on the front of the Times today gurning incompetant that he is Mermaid. What was all that about "Suffer the little children to come unto me. And I mean All the Children" Was he talking about a DNA database? Or the National Register of Every Child in Britain that he is compiling?

*shudder*

More puppy soon.
