Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Julie Andrews Turns 69, this is hysterical !!


 To commemorate her birthday , actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at  Manhattan 's Radio  City Music Hall. One of the musical numbers she performed was 'My Favorite Things' from the legendary movie 'Sound Of Music'. Here are the lyrics she used:
 

 
(Sing It!) If you sing it, its especially hysterical!!!

 
Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
 Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
 These are a few of my favorite things.

 Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
 Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
 Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
  These are a few of my favorite things.

When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
 When the knees go bad,
 I simply remember my favorite things,
  And then I don't feel so bad.

 Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
 No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
 Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
 These are a few of my favorite things.

 Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin',
 Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
 And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
 When we remember our favorite things.

 When the joints ache, When the hips break,
 When the eyes grow dim,
 Then I remember the great life I've had,
  And then I don't feel so bad.

Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd
 that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores.
Please share Ms. Andrews' clever wit and humor with others who would appreciate it

  1. This is funny! And it's true...it is better if you sing it to yourself because it makes it more funny!
