Little Richard at the age of 87.

I must confess that he's one of those people I'd kind of assumed had already journeyed to the great concert hall in the sky some time ago.

Remember my Mum and Dad singing: 'Whale meat again' as a rationing 'joke'.

Heard: 'When the lights go on again all over the world' on the radio yesterday.
Made me cry just thinking about her and so appropriate for our pandemic times too.
What a 'wrench' (in a nice way) she had in her voice.
Upset me yesterday, imagine guys like my Dad, six years away, VE Day; 'Off you pop to fight the Japs Donald, toodle pip!'

To finally get peace and the start of a return to normality, these lyrics (qv) would have really got to you! :cry:


...... and the boys are home again all over the world
And rain or snow is all that may fall from the skies above
A kiss won't mean "goodbye" but "Hello to love"
When the lights go on again all over the world.

RIP Vera Lynn, Everybody's Sweetheart.
