There is a definite Bee Gees vibe lately on some blogs I've been reading. Not a problem for me. Me, who has a vivid memory of sitting on a swing during play period in elementary school singing "I Started A Joke" while looking at the gravel under my feet.

(Yes, there used to be gravel under the swings on playgrounds. And all the equipment was made of metal. A solid metal slide on a sunny day? Oh, it's true. And the girls were still made to wear dresses at this point in Neolithic history. We were a tough people then. But I digress.)

I've been a Bee Gees fan for a long, long time. And Barry is one of my Sexiest Men. Then and now. Funny, quick with a smile, disarming laugh, left-handed, a birthmark on his chest, exquisite wordsmith --- he just makes me happy.

One of the several Bee Gees concerts I went to (hard to speak of them in the past tense --- poor Maurice), I attended with my father. How great is a Daddy who would take his daughter to see the Bee Gees? (Actually, he liked them, too, I think. Daddy was a connoiseur of harmony, a taste he passed generously along to me.)

Was finally able to graft the photo of my bolero from camera to computer, but have tried repeatedly to upload it to here. Have you seen it yet? No, because the only message I get on trying to upload is "The Page Cannot Be Displayed." Which page? This one? Hel -lo!! The one the picture's on? That isn't even a page, is it? Isn't it a file? Will I ever be able to show knitting photos here again?

Because I'm making some socks from awesome yarn Elaine sent me last SP round. I had been saving it, wanting to use it for the first pair I knit on 2 circulars (as Elaine also gave me the Bordhi book), but, as that's not going anywhere right now either, I combined a couple of 2-needle patterns and have one sock finished. I'd love for you to see it. But, as you've no doubt gathered from my last several posts, things just aren't going my way at the moment.

Time to crank up the "Jive Talkin'. . ." Or the "Stayin' Alive. . ."

Now its allllright, its ok....something something something the other way. We can't try to understand the something something effect on a man (?). Whether you're a Mother or whether you're a brother you're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.

Now its in my head for a couple of days you know!

Dying to see the sock and the bolero! :)

And the seats of the swings were wood so that you could stand up and pump?
