Beautiful autumnal day with lots of lovely sunshine albeit the air is a tad chilly no rain so that's good. Washing machine has been working flat out and all laundry on the line to dry one less thing to worry about.Very Happy

Heard rockets and bangers going off here last night for a few hours don't think Patch was impressed though bless him.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone.Very Happy

Re:
Camilla's Avatar But I love the picture it conjures up a cosy settled time with none of our present technology and the pound could go further but hiding behind there surely must be a struggle too falling on hard times and the after affects of the war before or indeed during the war.

Re:
KitKatCot's Avatar I just knew it was going to be Al Bowlly. His singing was the soundtrack to my childhood.

Saturday night, up in my bedroom I listened to the sound of Al Bowlly drifting up the stairs. If not him, then The Ink Spots.

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Fancy that KKC, I just love the sound of this type of music, yes I love Queen and Rolling Stones from the past but I also love this type pf music. My inlaws used to listen to this too on a Sunday night on the Gramophone sometimes. Like Rudy Vallee too.

Don't remember the Ink Spots, what year was this?

Re:
Fennie's Avatar We never listened to that music at home, or indeed to any kind of music. And as for an open fire, it was always smoking or setting the chimney alight. But the real terror of those times was damp. Leave the fireside and all the other rooms were cold and clammy and the bedsheets would feel wet and there would be ice on the inside of the windows. And do you know I can't remember ever seeing my father with a newspaper. He used to make up his own news and tell us outrageous stories. His was a life outside the conventional world and he would have ridiculed the tweeness of that picture and said that the man probably worked for a bank or in insurance and was thinking about his pension or the golf club.
But it is a nice picture for all that and comfortable. Very HappyVery Happy

Re:
Withy Brook's Avatar We didn’t listen to music much. We had a wireless and listened to the 6o’clock news and comedian Tommy Hanley and suchlike. And Henry Hall’s Guest Night.
