  1. Not really my bag Mr H but I do like the line "singing songs and drinking wine, while you're eyes played games with mine".

    I think a Bloody Mary is the drink du jour pour moi.

    Have a good weekend.

  2. Music by Quincy Jones, lyrics by Don Black. Goes well with this.

  3. Not a Bloody Mary night here- just supervised an 8 year old girls birthday party with 12 of them. I demand gin, and lots of it.

  4. SA - that calls for the hard stuff, I think it would be a single malt with a 5 am Saint on the side for good mesure.

    I love my boys but the words birthday and party strung together and uttered by either fill me with dread and make me want to emigrate on my own.

  20. Speaking of driving on the wrong side, I say 2U is a sparkling name for a U2 tribute band. Are they
    Eng or Ire?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Perhaps Sco - given that they were playing Lanark?

  22. May well be as there's nothing to do up there 'cept get Mick's sunburn. He should have kept his pants on.
