Those were the days .....

Posted Saturday February 6

This Little vignette appeared from nowhere

when I read this week's given words at 

Sunday's Whirligig and Sunday Scribblings

the Second. 

Memories (or maybe not) of my late teens in Swinging 6o's London Town!

Those were the days my friend.

A whisper, a venue.

Ate a cake that sent us swaying. 

Passed a mysterious envelope from one eager hand to another.

Carried another suitcase to another hall, its contents hiding ’twixt the pleats of a skirt, the folds of a shirt, in the sole of a shoe.

Lucy. Lucy in the sky. Lucy. Lucy?

Fever my friend. Fever in the morning, fever all through the night. Fever!

Memories mon amie. Souvenirs tout au long de la nuit. Some scissor sharp. Some forgotten.

Best forgotten.

Those were the days, oh yes those were the days.

Blimey - she's 66 now!


  1. 66 seems young! You are so right those hits that stirred us all those years still set my feet a'tapping and croaking the words.

  2. Aha so there were cakes then too ;) i think this one sang from the heart

  3. Well who would have thought I feel so boring!:)

  4. Wow, that was nice, very clever and very nice

  5. This was like browsing through my old record collection. Yes, I still have it. And yes, it brings back certain brightly detailed memories, and a few not so glowing. Great use of the words,
