Great song, but that dress! Yikes! What era is this video from, Map??? ;-) xoxoxoAnd all the best to Charlie... it's so great to have him back again!
An incredibly good song, Map, while I laze about the house and collect the dole once a month. Life is good when I have a caregiver like Martha and a friend like you ...And you know, Pon, I didn't notice the dress until you mentioned it—outdated, is it?
I liked the dress - it's so fitting with everything else.
Pon; You don't like the dress? It's the latest fashion here, all the rage as they say! Why I even have one in red myself! :¬)xxxCharlie; Don't be lazin' about too much now! (Do you have a little bell to ring when you need something fetching?) :¬)Pat; I think that show was from the early 80's, though Maura (the lovely singer) was never one for convention! :¬)xxx
I was just about to say it had to be the 80s. Or the turn of the millenium if it was in the part of Wales I used to live, which is always about 20 years behind the rest of the world. I was down there last year and they've just discovered the Mullet...
At first glance, I thought she was wearing a camouflage dress! Maura (love that name) has a fabulous voice, but 80s fashion sucked. I know... I was there... ;-)
Wow! What a voice!And the dress? Very buttoned down!Pearl
Kim; Was it one of YOUR mullets? (I've seen the photies!!) :¬)Pon; Maura (maw rah) O'Connell still has a fantastic voice. I never met her when she lived here, and she lives in Nashville now, but I was always a big fan. (She's on my FB friends if you want to check more of her stuff. And by stuff I mean music, not fashion!!) :¬)xxxPearl; Ya, a fine set of pipes has our Maura!The dress not your style either I take it? :¬)xxx
As one who's never paid much heed to fashion, I must say at first I thought I was looking at the wallpaper and not a dress. :)However the voice is so lovely that I forgot all about that 80s dress. But hey, it's not about the dress, it's about CHARLIE back amongst us! You're a good man Map for swinging the spotlight in his direction.
hope; Fashion Smashion!! I have a feeling you set your own trends!It IS good to see Charlie 'about the place' again! :¬)xxx
so glad i stopped by this evening - such a beautiful touch of "home" found here - and couldn't resist running over to check on charlie just now but he was dozing soundly so i didn't wake him - martha must have run out with friends for a bit so i just gave irish and molly a little treat as i left - thanks for sharing charlie's little serenade with us!oh, and in the event you've not already, feel free to check out one of my other blogs [words unspoken] when you drop by - perhaps you will enjoy it too - have a great remainder of the night, sir!!!
GYPSYWOMAN; Thank you for the lovely compliment.And yes, I have checked out all your blogs, each one more beautiful and poetic than the last. You have a wonderful spirit! :¬)xxx
I dropped over from Charlie's blog. Too bad you can't draw a pint through the web. But the Irish songs come through.I was fortunate enough to live outside of Limerick (near University) back in '89. County Clare is the best IMHO.slainte
