Don't Worry, Be Happy
Here are the school leaving members of the 'King's Barbers' (from my alma mater) singing a classic song for our difficult times, 'Don't worry, be happy'. Traditionally the 'Barbers' are given a pitch-pipe as a leaving present; which are in the small boxes that they open.
Don't expect perfection, they're certainly not pro's; just a bunch of boys who sing for the love of singing.
At 3.38 mins you will see two boys walking down a narrow road. On the right is the medieval building where I spent four years of my youth. Ah, memories!
The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
