Hi everyone! I'm sitting in the garden typing my post today, as it is an absolutely glorious day - and, no, I still haven't done that ironing that I talked about a few days ago!! If you knew Devon (which is really the jewel in England's crown - hee hee!) then you would know that when the sun shines, you get out there and enjoy it. You certainly don't stay indoors doing housework, for fear that it might be raining again the next day. Well, that's my excuse anyway, and I'm sticking to it!!
When my daughter got married back in early June, two very good friends of mine were here when we arrived back from the ceremony and did us proud serving the Pimms and cream teas to everyone. They were absolutely brilliant, and also cleared up afterwards before they left. As a little "thank you" I booked for the three of us to go to the theatre, so we went last evening. I knew that it was a show that they would absolutely love, and they certainly did!
The show was called Rock Around The Clock and was billed the greatest rock 'n' roll show since rock 'n' roll. It was brilliant and took us back to the days of juke boxes, bouffant hair styles, brylcreem and teddy boys, to name but a few! To get that authentic 50's feel, newsreel footage and photos of the era were showcased as a backdrop throughout the evening.
With apologies to my younger Followers who will never have heard of any of this (!), the show featured non-stop rock 'n' roll classics, such as Great Balls of Fire, Jailhouse Rock, Blueberry Hill, Shake Rattle and Roll, Good Golly Miss Molly, and other classics made famous by Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, and The Platters, to name but a few.
We really were rocking in the aisles by the end of the show and all agreed that it had been a terrific evening, when, for a couple of hours, we were transported back to the songs of our youth.
This evening I am going on a Treasure Trail with my ladies' group, and that will be another fun evening, followed by a meal in a local hostelry!
My Sunday Snaps post on Sunday will feature Ruby Violet's day at the seaside!!
