Re: 12h Ergmarathon

Dear Peter, how did your fundraising go? That poor young man, Oliver Zeidler - perhaps if he had been able to have family and friends there to cheer him on, then things might have been different. How do you soothe away such disappointment. My friend, Pat's, nephew, James Cooke will be representing G...

Re: Dog Days of Summer

Thank you Jon. :)

Although there will not be a Dancing Dog to look forward to this season, my virtual pooch has just brought me his collar and lead. Woof.🐕

Re: Name that tune

Thank you Paul.

It's my late brother's 74th birthday today and even after 37 years, he is still so loved and missed. A special man.

He was a fan of this group and this was his favourite song:

No time to wallow in the mire

Re: Name that tune

I didn’t actually know the song Jill. It was the only word in Wolfie’s sentence that made sense as an answer. But I’m happy to put one up if you’d prefer to hand on the baton. Paul, to quote the Animals: Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood :fsbgrin: :fswink: Still over to you then. Thank ...

I was just wondering was the next line “And I’m going to drain the swamp and build a wall”? No, and for the record, I would much prefer to keep my nose out of American politics, especially as I have never understood them. :lol: :wink: This is the full verse: I'm a political man and I practice what ...

Re: Name that tune

A man and his dog? From the clues, it sounds like he picked up his gun to shoot the dog. I don’t know the song but it sounds absolutely dreadful. I can see why you might hate it. Paul, I am surprised that no one appears to know this song, as it's supposed to be an all time C & W great. The man ...

Re: Name that tune

From your clues I am going to guess Elvis Presley - Love Me Tender?? - taking a real flier here Paul, you are correct about the artist but not about the tune, and here, I am a little concerned that you think a song about a man and his dog, would be titled, Love Me Tender, Love Me Long. :shock: :lol...

No takers I see - more clues then. Just a boy and his dog, we were both full of fun We grew up together that way This song was composed and first recorded in 1933 and has since been covered by many American C & W artists. The version that I'm thinking of came out in 1956 and was sung by an Ameri...
