The Round circle of Life...

So...this grandgirl...one of my southern ones ...is writing songs...
I love that thought...
Why?
Well because that's what I did at her age....9 years old...
..and furthermore continued to do for many years ...and more than that recorded in a London studio at the end of the 60s and early 70s......
...so what...I hear you say ?
Well the mum ...loyal daughter...said to her ...
"Do you know who else in our family wrote songs?...
...Grangee"....that's me by the way...
"shall we google her?"
(what rubbish ...it was 40 years ago!)
OOOOPS....there she is, and guess what the LP is for sale....
.....at what?!!!

 Never!
I'm stunned...I want to go searching in the boxes...you know the ones that everyone keeps under their beds...don't you?...and see if I can find some chewed-up copy somewhere!!!
I google...yes it's true.
But what's that I see?

...I've died!!!!!

Yes that's why the LP is so expensive...I can't produce any more ....I suppose!!!!
Talk about wikipedia.
Yes I did make records...they were Jazz, Soul, of their time, and lo and behold it appears that people still want them!
Well I suppose I should have realised that as I get my PRS through each year....though to be honest it wouldn't take me very far nowadays .
But it's still a nice feeling when it comes through the letterbox.

I've written to the very nice man who wrote up about my demise....what was it that Spike Milligan said?...something like ..."The news of my death has been much exaggerated"....
...or was it ..."I told you I was ill"..?



...aunt Helen would say..."So much water under the Lagan Bridges"

Dear blogging friends...you must realise how much I'm loving this!!!!
