Day 07- A song that is your guilty pleasure ... Matchstalk Men & Matchstalk Cats and Dogs by Brian & Michael

Day 08- A song you liked when you were younger

The funny thing is about this song is that I have always loved it - even though, until today, I never knew what the words where - or what they meant!!!! If you want to read the history then look here

When I was a kid we had a reel-to-reel tape recorder and Mum and Dad used to record my favourite songs off the radio - over the years it got put on tape, and is now on CD. Last week I drove M&D to Tim & Claires and we had the CD on ... and this is one of the ones Mum and I sang along to Iko Iko by The Dixie Cups



If you want to sing along, then go here - Viveo plus words, showing the meaning of the song.

Oh boy - now I'm stuck!  A James song I loved when I was younger - I suppose it will have to be the first ever song I heard James sing ... and because I watched BtVS after it was finished, and bouth the DVDs out of order it is- Rest in Peace. I know I don't usually give a link, but couldn't resist for this -

Picture Meme - Day 3

And, so I continue with my Picture Meme that I snagged from hell0kittyangel ...

Day 1 -  Your Best Friend ... Toni
Day 2  - Your crush ... James Marsters

Day 3 — Your parents

Dad has always hated his picture being taken, and since Mum had Bell's Palsey, then corrective surgery she hates it as well - but this was part of the group, that I took at Claires birthday meal ... it's in their kitchen.

For those who want to backtrack then here is a poor scan of them in 1952 on their wedding day.

Just to point out the choice of icon - both my Grandfathers were preachers!  As is my Dad (and both my brothers!)
