Thank you to one and all… for making the afternoon so special.

Thank you to those who may have danced the dance for the SUN? In secret or otherwise?

A song for all with love.
Sung to the tune of …
‘My Little Red Top.’ Ben Kynard / Lionel Hampton)
I first heard it by the sublime King Pleasure & Betty Carter (1952)
Annie’s Little Red Trombone.
August 2013.
Head.
A day in Folkestone Town with… Ginger & Garlic.

Annie’s Little Red Trom-bone, it really gets you swinging. Going round and round.

Don’t you ever stop?

You’ve got me so that if I don’t swing around. Sure gonna drop, gonna drop, gonna drop.

Jennifer on the Keys,
A’ laying down the groo-oove. Playing those Ivories,
Don’t you ever stop?
They make wanna sing till I spin. Not gonna drop, gonna drop.

Improvise around the Blues…..12 bar.

One summer day in the garden. Folk in Folky diggin’ the sky.

Mark in the trees peepin’ through, Yvonne in the Toma-toes.

Beat sittin’ in the sun.
Wine flowing, Juicy juice, food going…. down.

Jane’s golden carrots went down a treat, Chicken delicious and salads of green.

Cheese, biscuits and pickles are loverly.

Beetroot salad, lots’a beans,

Yvonne’s Eton Mess, where’s my spoon?
Indian Mango’s and plums, Fresh figs on a dish… Karen…

Mark and Carol – in Howard’s shed… with Howard. Picking up Sun-Rays.
Pip, Didi, and Karen, Andrew and Debs.
Sooty and Michael…

Kasia and Sam. Mark and Tremaine. Liz, Tim, Anne, and Sarah. Lets party ‘till twilight.
We had three Marks, Hewins, Jennet, Matharu — he took the Photos.
Oh, my God. Is that me?
Remind me oh please, my hair’s a disaster. The sky was blue, blue, I danced it for you. So Old Mother Nature, take your bow.

Tremaine bought a Cake, good wishes for all. Didi cut twenty
pieces went round
hope all of your wishes come true.

Maybe next year, we can gather again, until then…
Good living a’plenty.

Back to head &….
A day in Folkestone Town.

Honey & Cheesecake.

Annie’s Little Red Trom-bone, it really gets you swinging. Going round and round.

Don’t you ever stop?

You’ve got me so that if I don’t swing around. Sure gonna drop, gonna drop, gonna drop.

Jennifer on the Keys,
A’ laying down the groo-oove. Playing those Ivories,
Don’t you ever stop?
They make wanna sing till I spin. Not gonna drop, gonna drop.

Head.
A day in Folkestone Town. Rosemary Sage and Parsley.

There are so many more words, You would run out of breath. Chocolates and Cakes…..
Too many to mention.

Dear Carol  Kasia and I looked through your wonderful Book last night in my bed wearing our Pyjamas.

Didi… a bag from Japan.. a beautiful Fan…

I will sit in my garden,
wave away wasps, and think of you and at night I will light little candles. in those beautiful pots, place olives in Mark Jenne’ts red yellow green bowl and think of you both there by the River. And Sooty your sky, I love and will find a special place in my home where I will hang it.

Scoop dip diddly doo Shwee be da dee doo whoa dee whoo, whoo,
goodbye see you soon whenever our roads intertwine… And I love you.

For Jane Gittens without whom life would be unbearable.

For Mark Matharu who took all the pictures that contain me!
