Everybody goes back to school, and the colds come back home.My sincerest apologies for ending the season early. I am sick and feverish, so I was in a haze. Oh well.... I still stand by my decision.
Yes! That's the one I was thinking of ... great job, CeeJay!Dick Van Dyke performed this in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, thus earning the needed readies to purchase the car. He sang and danced his way, I grunted and sat my way through it......Watched the film again recently,the songs are still fab,the film a little lackuing from childhood memory....I have been to Neuschwanstein...it was still not finished !! But the Bavarians do love King Ludwig who started it !!
You're a rebel, Mark!Thanks for hosting Sabine x Looking through that list just reminds me of what a whacko world we really live In. I've opted for this one because in an age of typed word, abbreviated text and email the personal touch of writing especially letters and cards should be celebrated and maintained 'World Letter Writing Day' ...................

(UK radio personality)Danny Baker pointed out a few years back that ITLAP Day should in fairness really be entitled "International Talk Like Robert Newton Day" as it's his OTT performance as Long John Silver in Disney's 1950 production of Treasure Island that everyone imitates when they talk "like a pirate."What about International Talk Like a Pirate Day, which is held every September 19? Aaaaaargh!
Wikipedia - International Talk Like a Pirate Day
"At least three songs have been written about Talk Like a Pirate Day. Michigan filk musician Tom Smith wrote the original "Talk Like a Pirate Day" song on Talk Like a Pirate Day 2003. Later, inspired by the coincidence that September 19 is Hermione Granger's birthday, Smith wrote "Hey, It's Can( n)on," in which Granger becomes a pirate queen after she discovers that her birthday falls on Talk Like a Pirate Day. Tom Mason and John Baur wrote "Talk Like a Pirate," performed by Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers."
