In the spa this (Saturday) evening, the 38oC temperature and the Campari spritz loosened my thoughts.
Voicing them, I related my reliving teenage memories of listening to Funny Girl on vinyl borrowed from the Birmingham (UK) Central Library through listening to the soundtrack on Spotify during my journey to work this week.
Funny girl is a stage and movie musical from the late 1960s based on the life of Fanny Brice. Brice is played by Barbra Streisand, one of my teenage idols.
I am platonically attracted to strong females.
In an instant, I remembered, I also love the Neil Diamond, Jazz Singer soundtrack. I have never seen the movie.
My husband said ‘he wears a blue sequin jacket in that’. ‘No’, I replied.
Sure enough you can buy one from The Jacket Shop, Reenactment Clothing for $419.98 USD and it’s in stock!
Aside from the Streisand and Diamond duet of ‘You don’t bring me flowers’ that never happened, apparently delivered to the World by a radio DJ, all mixing.
I prefer to keep my teen years where they belong as memories.

For you and your husband:
Wow, Forgot how beautiful and heart wrenching this was!
Yes, surprisingly so! It did tug on my heartstrings and make me teary. How sad it has been that we seldom encounter music of such calibre from the younger generations! Since you have such a fine musical taste, I would like to inform you that I have featured some of the best of songs for the autumn season in one of my latest posts entitled “🌤️🌾 A September to Remember: Greeting Post-Pandemic and Post-Elizabethan Age 👑🏰 with Sapphires, Asters, Poems and Songs 💎🌼📜🎶“, which also mentions and features the late Queen Elizabeth II in a special way. For your convenience, the link is:
Please enjoy to your heart’s content. I welcome your input since I am curious to know what you make of my said post as well as your perspectives on those contents presented in my post. I look forward to savouring your feedback there!
Wishing you as well as Robert and his significant half a productive late-autumn and a wonderful weekend doing or enjoying whatever that satisfies you the most, whether intellectually, artistically, physically, spiritually or musically!
I forgot to mention that for those residing in Australia, it is now late spring.
Good morning to you, Robert!
As a teenager I had a crush on the movie star Burt Lancaster until I read that he was the same age as my father!! At 85 that doesn’t really bother me since I’m older than either Burt of my dad ever got to be. Sometimes time really is relative.
I liked Burt Lancaster too. I have just finished reading Montgomery Clint’s biography. They were both in From Here to Eternity, it’s on my to be watched list.
Sensible fellow to keep your memories where they are. Most always when we revisit something it isn’t what it was or how we remembered it.
Thank you 🙂
