Being Friday the Tenth day of August, 2019 ...

We admired the new floor.
We were mostly relieved by the change in the weather.
Then we got on with the usual business.

There was universal bird-song ...


Singing of you.

Lynda related the story of an errant wife ...


I'd rather have a kiss ...

Mick took us on a train journey to ...





Bryan pondered about an unusual appearance in the sky ...


I see thunder-clouds building.

Angela received a farewell ...


I'm away to the sea.

Mick and Marion reminisced ...


Gone forever!

Lynda conveyed a holy message ...




Mike sang about East Texas ...


Do daffodils grow there?

Mick played a melody from his recent album ...



So did Laurie ...


Do you waltz, St. Richard?


A lady had a mysterious encounter ...


Your beauty so enticed me ...

Then we waltzed dreamily all the way home!

Here's one ...



Well done, Mick, and thank you for your music.

Searching for tunes ...

Readers of the earlier post will understand that I searched youtube for a tune entitled 'cotillion'.
There were quite a few, but not one that I immediately recognised as Elizabeth's charming offering.
Serendipity was at hand as I discovered this delightful melody ...


For those who are so-inclined, here are the-dots-and-lines ...


I notice, of course, that there is a discrepancy in spelling of the titles, but the first line looks like the same melody to me.

All we need now is a hammered dulcimer player!
