You ain't been blue; no, no, no. You ain't been blueTill you've had that mood indigo. That feelin' goes stealin' down to my shoes
While I sit and sigh, "Go 'long blues".
Always get that mood indigo, since my baby said goodbye.
In the evenin' when lights are low, I'm so lonesome I could cry.
'Cause there's nobody who cares about me, I'm just a soul who's bluer
than blue can be.
When I get that mood indigo, I could lay me down and die.
music by DUKE ELLINGTON & BARNEY BIGARD
lyrics by IRVING MILLS, as sung by NINA SIMONE

I always get so confused when I come round to visit and things have been moved about...it's something like a cross between time-travelling and Alzheimer's.

sorrow yup, you said it

ZiggZ are they late? sadly, there aren't many around here. . .
wish I lived somewhere where I could see them - love a bluebell haze in a wood

shot I sometimes move things for the benefit of people who only ever look at the first piece on the page. . . not you, of course

If Dave had commissioned me to say Good Morning on his behalf, I would of course have felt honoured, but as it is I've just come (virtually) from visiting Z in Glasgow, where I believe they sing:

...but for bonny Annie Laurie,
I would lay me down and die


- only in Glasgow they would say 'lay me doon an' dee'.

Good morning, Jax.

(I noticed that he was doing the rounds and felt sure I'd be next)

Dave said...

I did come here, and was about to comment when the 'phone went (my mother, asking me to look something up on the internet) so I went off in other directions, and have only just realsied that I didn't actually post my comment.

Good morning.
