    Thank you for hosting, Val.
    Here's a simple animation I made in 2014 using my students' drawings. They got into groups and each group had to create characters of a family. I borrowed my nephew's toy keyboard to make some beats. Today I added a little uke strumming over.

    My childhood was fantastic - thanks in no small part to having 3 fantastic brothers who all loved playing football (that’s proper football - ie soccer! ) as much as I did. We’d be in the local park kicking a ball around at every opportunity. I dedicate this to them. Thanks for hosting, Val - great theme!

    STOP PRESS: We are about to have a storm - it has got VERY dark! There's a chance that we might have a power cut as a result, so I might disappear! If I do, then I'll be back a.s.a.p. In the meantime, please keep posting.

    John Lennon went through Primal Scream therapy and this was the song that came out of it. The angst in his voice at the end of the song is and expression of pain that I hope I never have to suffer. My own mother died when I was 8... I often wonder what kind of man I might have been if she had lived longer. No screams from me on this one.

    A little quiz:

    Here’s me and 2 of my 3 brothers - circa 1970? But which one is me?

    I was trying to remember when I was listening to your football song, where you came in the order ... I have a feeling you've mentioned it before. To me, you look most like the one on the left, but I think I've probably got it wrong!

    And, thank you, Ryan ... all is well. The power DID go off, but only very temporarily. We are, apparently, expecting another storm on Wednesday ... we're very vulnerable here as we are surrounded by trees which have a tendency to fall on the power lines. So, should I inexplicably disappear later in the week, that will be the reason.

    And it is now bedtime here in France. Thanks to everyone who contributed today. I leave you with this thought from Mr. Einstein, who seems to have had a lot of quite profound thoughts ......

    I made this video using drawings of my family members with my nephew Gylan when he was a baby.
    Sent the video to Jon for him to come up with some music. He did it really quickly, and so beautifully.
    ( Thank you, Jon!)
    Hope you all enjoy.
    Jon played concert ukulele and acoustic guitar.
    The drawings were made in ink.
