I came across this old hymn book in a second hand store while we were away last week and couldn’t resist its charm. It now sits proudly (as is) on the old piano in our living room.

I take photos. I write. I sing & dance. Ok, I DON’T sing & dance. Not in public, anyway; & usually 2 my own beat. But I have fun, & that makes life a little more tolerable -for me. Maybe not 4 my kids. But, hey, if they can’t laugh at their mum then they’re probably the only ones who aren’t. So turn up the music & let’s boogie! (Do they still boogie these days? Gosh, I’m getting old. Best be careful not 2 throw a hip while throwing a leg!)

    Nice one Donna!
    This must be “Eye Tunes”, where you see the musical notes and the words, then use a series of black & white keys, struck or stroked with the fingers, to create musical tunes. True digital music! Then there are the words, which with the help of “You Voice” – powered by a tube between the mouth and the lungs – are sung to correspond, hopefully, with the musical notes! What a quaint concept! There will be some who remember, others will just gugle. :)george

  • :D Terrific comment, George!!! :D GREATLY appreciated! Thank you! xxx
