He didn't "live forever"



Halfway between former abode and the new one, I have sneaked into the seriously troubling, and distinctly unhygienic, surroundings of our local library's "Computer Centre" in order to check up on things around here. I am absolutely knackered after the weekend's humping (oo-er), but have spent the day travelling up and down the road between the two places by bus, recovering stuff we forgot in the frenzy of the move, cleaning and sorting the detritus we left behind, and buying stuff for Dolores Delargo Towers #4 - which currently looks a bit like the closing "warehouse scene" of Raiders of the Lost Ark (or in our case, the "lost" coffee filter papers, the "lost" shirt, the "lost" dressing-gown, etc.).

Hey ho, it would have been dear old Sacha Distel's 85th birthday today, so let's hand things over to him on this Tacky Music Monday, shall we?


Zut Alors!

Have a good week, dear reader...

Alexandre Sacha Distel (29th January 1933 – 22nd July 2004)

  2. I can only imagine how bushed your are, and I'm guessing your pumps are worn to nubs by now. It's hard to work and be fabulous at the same time, but one never knows what corner the paparazzi is hiding around.

    1. "Why?" is probably the most apposite question. Jx
