I learned that song in Turkey. We were in an underground cavern watching different folk dances from all around Turkey. All the sudden ‘Those were the days’ came on and let me tell you, it was a big hit with all-Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders and Americans alike. Lots of arm waving, swaying and singing. I joined in on all three but only knew the first line of the chorus so pretty much just la la’d around.
In fact, as I was getting on the bus a few days later I was singing the ‘la la’ part of the song and the next thing I knew the whole bus had joined in with me and we were all merrily singing along together.
That was enjoyable.
I think the point of me tell you all that is to tell you that all these days that I haven’t been blogging were, ‘those were the days my friend’.
Either that or it was just a good intro.
So we left Turkey on June 11th. And we left for California on July 11th.
That’s roughly thirty days at home. Give or take.
In those 30 days we went to a wedding.
And we took one of my favorite self portraits ever.
All in the name of getting that little cherub in the middle to stop wailing. It worked!
I quit one job in the hopes that it would help slow life down a bit. Not so much, but working with Wes has been a blast.
Lets see. Had a nice girls night out.
Worked some more.
And then we left.
And perhaps that’s where I’ll come back.
