Let’s Dance!

22 Sep

Several times a month, Ron and I follow our favourite cover band, The Bandits, to various venues in Sydney. We love to hear their wonderful renditions of many of the greatest hits of the sixties, seventies and eighties; tunes made famous by both top Australian and overseas artists.

Sometimes, the band leader, Paul, encourages the audience to sing along; though many, both on the dance floor and in the background, need no encouragement, at least to mime.

Waiting for the music to begin....

Music can weave a special magic. What else can create such dramatic shifts in mood?

Whether you’re there to dance or just to listen, it’s easy to get transported to another time, another place: back to one’s younger days!

The River in the Rain….

What a difference a day makes!

After a lengthy spell of dry weather, the heavens opened up today here in Sydney, Australia.

I for one  quite enjoy walking in the rain, and Chicki our Maltese doesn’t shirk from accompanying me.

There’s nothing quite like observing the effects of rain on water and surrounding areas. Misty vistas and intriguing patterns on the water are special highlights.

Enjoy!

Chicki’s Christmas

So, as  her daddy Ron received his gift from her mummy Margaret, she was all alert and expectant.

Her face said, ‘Where’s mine?’

Within seconds  it appeared, and all was excitement!

The game that ensued amongst us all became a Christmas highlight!

What would Christmas be without special moments like these?
