Being Friday the 6th of June, 2014 ...

On this day, seventy years ago, we all know what happened …

'D-Day Assault, June 1944.'
 Orville Norman Fisher, (1911-98.)

We did not celebrate.
We commemorated, even though our elder statesman is not of sufficiently advanced years to actually remember.
(In truth, Berry will freely admit that he can’t even recall what he ate for breakfast!)

Mave sang about a seasonal agricultural activity …

Ken sang about a moonlighting occupation …

It's just what I do 'on-the-side!

Connor claimed, “I don’t drink as much as I used to …"

I will always love you!

Roger won a prize for naming a classical composer …

Thomas Tallis, 1505-85.

Melissa sang a song that was not written by Cat Stevens ...

Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.

Actually the words by Eleanor Farjeon were first published in 1931, set to a traditional Scottish/Gaelic melody, Bunessan.
Several of us remembered Morning has Broken from our primary-school hymn books.

Roger would have us believe that this is a trombone...

Berry pleased us all by performing Whale-meat and Gin

Angela and Paul sent us home with something like this …

That's Angela, Paul and Roger at Evershed Arts Centre in July last year.
Sure, the ambient lighting isn't good for video, but the sound is particularly agreeable.
Lots of us joined in.
Then we went home humming, (very quietly!)
