Several years ago now my youngest granddaughter (who has been teaching in the UK for a couple of years ) asked me how we survived before television.
We played in the street:
Went for long walks, exploring:
It was safe for children in South Australia back then:
And we had sing alongs often.
Karaoke isn’t the same:
But musos having a “jam” session would be similar:
My Dad and his brother (who grew up on there parents farm in Yorkshire)
Would sing old war songs:
ROLL OUT THE BARRELL
They would also Recite “Albert and the Lion”
This is Stanley Holloways version
Apologies for the “flash” –I have several scanners but none compatible with this laptop –so photographed the photograph.
Dad had such a dry sense of humour:
I would have to tell people that he was joking.
I love his funny sayings—only sharing a couple:
“You’re not very often right
but you’re wrong this time”
If you worry you die
If you don’t worry you die
So why worry”
Stay safe and happy during this pandemic
Hahaha I live right next to Blackpool, I used to live there. It’s in the song Albert and the Lion.
