My father loved Glenn Miller and I still have all his recordings.

 

At dad's funeral, I chose String of Pearls as we went into the chapel. I danced behind the coffin!  Since I organised and officiated at the funeral. I could do whatever dad would have wanted and everyone left with a smile on their faces which would please dad.

I remember, as I stood at the lectern, about to begin the tribute to dad, the first thing that came into my head was: "It was Christmas Day in the workhouse..."

Whilst at the Palais or Locarno.

For the girls, most often, a Babycham, a Brandy and Babycham, a Cherry B, Port and Lemon or a Pony

For the blokes, The usual fizzy keg beers, a pint of bitter/lager and a dash of lime, or if flush with funds a pint of poor man's Black Velvet, a half of stout and a half of cider.

The 6th June was also "Convoy Day"

It was the dark of the moon on the 6th June

In a Kenworth pullin' logs

Cabover Pete with a reefer on

And a Jimmy haulin' hogs

We was headin' for bear on I-1-0

'Bout a mile out a Shakey Town

I says, Pig Pen this here's the Rubber Duck

And I'm about to put the hammer down

This came up somewhere else earlier today. It could've been too schmaltzy, but it stays on the right side.
