Love is in Da Blog 2020 Day 13


Today’s prompt is from Di at Pensitivity101 and is a “Love Song for a Parent”. 

But you love me Daddy

Your five year old face
Is a dirty disgrace
But you love me, daddyYou scatter your toys
And you make too much noise
But you love me, daddyYou know little lad
You can be pretty bad
But you love me, daddyYou wake me at dawn
When I want to sleep on
But you love me, daddyNow you eat the cookies
When I tell you, no
But you love me, daddy
‘Cause you tell me soAnd you’re so hard to scold
‘Cause your my five year old
Because you love me, daddyWhen I dress you up
You go play with the pup
But you love me, daddyWhen I use the phone
You won’t leave me alone
But you love me, daddyYou make sister wail
Pulling her pony tail
But…

Love Is In Da Blog 2020 prompt for day 8


A Song about love that lasts

Please head over to Jim’s blog A Unique Title for me and say hello. You will find lots more music and most of all lots of information about musicians and songs. Brilliant!

If he brings you happiness
Then I wish you all the best
It’s your happiness that matters most of all
But if he ever breaks your heart
If the teardrops ever start
I’ll be there before the next teardrop falls

Si te quiere de verdad
Y te da felicidad
Te deseo lo mas bueno pa’los dos
Pero si te hace llorar
A mi me puedes hablar
Y estare contigo cuando triste estas

I’ll be there anytime
You need me by your side
To drive away every teardrop that you cried

And if he ever leaves you blue
Just remember, I love you
And I’ll be there before the next teardrop falls
And I’ll be there before the next teardrop falls

Afrikaanse Tokkel: Opwinding


Dis 1988, Hoërskool Secunda se eenduisend tweehonderd jongmense gons van opwinding. Selfs die onderwysers het ‘n gevoel van opwindende afwagting.
“Agter elke man” is n reeks, op SABC TV1, wat almal volg. Ons leef saam met elke karakter. Geliefde tant Stienie, met haar onderrok wat uithang, sigaret tussen die vingers. Al die drama met haar welaf dogter en dan ook van die ander karakters. Elk speel ‘n oortuigende vloeiende rol. Die volgende episode kan meestal nie gou genoeg kom nie.
Waarom gons dit hier? Ons verwag die einste jonge Steve Hofmeyer(Bruce Beyers, bombastiese jong man in “Agter elke man”) om homself aan ons voor te stel. Die meisies is vir dae al in vervoering. Selfs die seuns gesels oor hom. Ons, as onderwysers, is maar heel skepties oor die hele petalje. In die TV reeks is hy nie juis die beste voorbeeld van prim en propper nie. Dan het die mannetjie nogal ‘n stem om te kan sing ook, en hy is nogal iets vir die oog ook.
Almal is in die saal, sit en wag vir die verskyning van hul held. Dis naderhand ‘n halfuur na die tyd. Steeds geen Steve nie. Ons, as onderwysers, sit op die gallery en wag. Ons raak al kriewelrig van die wag. Die hoofseun en hoofmeisie probeer die orde handhaaf deur allerhande stories te vertel. Die atmosfeer is elektries.
Dan, met spoed verskyn daar ‘n man in ‘n gebleikte denim en wit hemp in die sydeur. Hy spring die trappies twee-twee tot op die verhoog. Die blonde kuif na die eenkant gevee, ‘n groot skewe glimlag op die gesig. Hy waai! Die meisies gil histeries. Hy beduie dat hul moet kalmeer. Hy begin vertel van hoe hy die rol in “Agter elke man” gekry het en hoe hy hom inleef in elke episode. Dan gee hy kans dat daar vrae gevra word. Die beste van die optrede was toe hy die kitaar vat en die tema lied van “Agter elke man” sing!

Ons, as opvoeders,was heel beindruk met die man se manier van praat en optree. Hy het beslis gewys dat hy nie die persoon in die reeks was nie.

Lê-Jou-Eier: Spookstories


Waar is die dae van ware spookstories? Al Debbo en Jurie Ferreire vat my ver terug na my kleintyd.

 

 

Kyk net na die klere en haarstyl nie net van Al Debbo nie maar ook die kinders en volwassenes. Hul lyk heel uitgevat vir die okasie. Wat dink jy?

YESTERDAY

 

 

“Yesterday”, written entirely (or almost entirely– read on) by Paul McCartney, is either the most, or second most, recorded song of all-time. (Guinness World Records claimed it was the most, but this has been contested with others claiming George Gershwin’s 1935 “Summertime” is the true owner of that mantle.) Whatever the case, to date, at least 4,000 different versions of the classic “Beatles” tune have been recorded by artists as diverse as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Liberace, Tammy Wynette, Daffy Duck (!), The Mamas and the Papas, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles and Placido Domingo.

XYLOPHONE

Picture 031

Xylophone made from wood horns and “kalbasse”

Photo was taken in Zambia next to the Zambezi River on our way to the helicopter that took us over the Victoria Falls. 2005

The term xylophone may be used generally, to include all such instruments, such as the marimba, balafon and even the semantron. However, in the orchestra, the term xylophone refers specifically to a chromatic instrument of somewhat higher pitch range and driertimbre than the marimba, and these two instruments should not be confused.

100 Word Challenge for Grown ups – Week 162 : Puff the magic Dragon.


Today’s 100 Word Challenge is about the following photo and what it brings to mind

100 WCGU #162

As a year one teacher I loved to do songs,rhymes and poems. Seeing these 4 bears going for the Teddy Bears Picnic, I thought back to Puff the Magic Dragon. It teaches children the love for animals, life and fantasy. Fantasy is important in a young child’s life. They need to have an opportunity to play. That is why rhymes and songs help. They usually repeat the same thing over and over again in these songs, which helps with vocabulary. To act these songs is also relaxing and calming. Portraying fantasies makes them experience real situations.
