Less of The Wind more of the Earth and fire


Enough of all this gloom and storm news
Just been watching an aged Earth Wind & Fire 
Performing on the tv
And I was suddenly whisked away to my disco bunny days back in 1978
Venue: The Stables nightclub in St Asaph
White jeans, grandad shirt, clean trainers....double Pernod and lemonade in my hand
And the worst dancing this side of the river Dee

    I borrowed World War Z and watched it earlier. Liked it.

  7. Trainers! in 1978??!!The white jeans and grandad shirt were bad enough!!I would have taken you for more of a Gucci loafers type!lol Anyhoo, back to Strictly....what an absolute nonsense that those two were in the dance-off and that that one got kicked out (I hate spoilers!).The public are a fickle lot, are they not? Have a good week :-)

  13. I was just reading about the storm coming to the UK. I have been through two hurricanes in the past two years, both bad, but the worst did not hit my home. Batten down the hatches and be safe.

  14. X and I sometimes went disco dancing when we were dating. Other times, we went to hotels. Such a mistake, but I love my children.

    Love,
    Janie

  17. Now that IS spooky! I wasted hours last night watching the likes of the Stylistics and the Manhattans on youtube. And a very young Rod Stewart. I don't care what anyone says, I loved the 70s......dancing round my handbag at 'The Place' in a nice frock from C&A......

  18. A year ago today we were hit with 'Hurricane Sandy' and lost part of our barn roof--Stay safe and if I see you blow over on your way to Kansas, I'll stop you!

  19. Was the grandad shirt made out of cheesecloth? I seem to remember almost all of the shirts/blouses being made of this around that time........

  20. So! Were you watching 'Strictly' last night, then?

    ReplyDelete
  21. John, I saw Strictly too, and drifted back to my disco days at The Maison Royale in Bournemouth.

  22. Tight and revealing white jeans, no doubt. I think we called them grandpa shirts. I'm sure you thought you were dancing well at the time.

  23. Everything okay?

  24. And at that time, I guess I was displaying the worst dancing the other side of the River Dee... LOVE the video.

  25. At that time, i was a freshman in college, rocking out to Jethro Tull and Bruce Springsteen, I also listened to Yes, the Sex Pistols, and the Ramones.

    I was not a fan of disco, but thought Earth, Wind, and Fire had great arrangements.
