So my mum has probably never known how much she has in common with ‘boldly goes where no man has gone before’ or ‘there’s life Jim, but not as we know it’. I looked up and found she was born the same year and month as Gorbachov and a man who sells newspapers – oh yes somebody Murdoch…But much more fun is the fact she was born the same year and month as both Captain Kirk and Mr Spock ( the actors William Shantner and Leonard Nimmoy). She has a lot in common with both of them including snappy fashion and hairstyling, bravery, amazing intelligence, the ability to ‘boldly go’, artistic and a fascinating life she should write a book about. So mum have a happy birthday today, and have another great year! I Love You.
SONG OF THE DAY 500 miles-Peter Paul and Mary
We use to sing all together as a family when we all lived together and mum and dad used to sing this one…so has poignant memories for me. I have arranged it for my choirs too, and is a real favourite…must do it again soon.
