HAPPY DAYS


A a merry morning on Youtube with all the old pop music – putting faces to the songs,some for the first time. Electric solid guitars were a new invention. New sounds, new rhythms, new dances. My first disco was in Leeds in 1966, while I was doing my Tax Officer training. Several of us on the course went. Dark cave-like place, blue and white flashing lights. Came out couldn’t hear each other speaking for ages due to the damage from very loud music! Good times.

PS While in Leeds I bought the three-tiered veil for my wedding in 1967. The embroidered second tier doesn’t show up here, nor the fabric flower headress. The silver sling-back shoes with silver leather flower held on by a diamonte’ centre were bought in Sheffield. The treebark satin A-line (ultra-trendy) dresses were all beautifully made by Mum, very reluctantly since she wanted me to have a proper, bought, bridal dress! But I have never seen a wedding collection I have liked more. Thank you Mum.

Me at my Grandaughter’s Age

My friend Barrie has taken up touching up old photos and here I am after being touched up (English joke). This is his van for their ‘group’ (sixties rock band) that my school friends and I used to follow (the band not the van, ha ha). They were a great band Roy Dwain and the Roamers nice lads and we were good girls. Jean and Annie in my class at Retford Girls High School ran their fan club. They were good days. Some of the original popular pmusic by the band is on Youtube click here Roy Dwain and the Roamers. This is my favourite clip. Now my grandaughter is the same age and is and about to learn to drive! Her bands come to the local Arena and cost a fortune, especially if you want to meet and greet. Our band used to hang out with their girlfriends in the interval (break) offstage in the dance hall and would happily sign photos. They had fun. We had fun.
