This guy’s evidently going and I’m not lion. (But he is.) Anyway, here’s a version of the song that brought this silliness to mind, a flash from a past I was alive during but didn’t partake in (inhaling or exhaling.) However, I did love the 60’s music. Enjoy.

    I always wanted a giant stone foo dog in front of the house, of maybe those forty foot tall PF Chang horses. That would be something 🙂

    This song was one of my favourites way back when it first came out. Even today I have it on my playlists.

    • I love listening to the oldies from the 60’s, the British Invasion music, etc. Although I was too young (and uninterested) to take part in “The 60’s”, I enjoyed the music.

    While born smack dab in the middle of the Sixties, I can quickly on one hand count the number of songs I know from the decade. For me it is Eighties music.

    Hi Janet,
    Great video… I just LOVE LOVE the photography.
    I was around in the 60’s too but way too Young for those fun & games.

    • I doubt most of them were really fun and games, Barb, and I’m happy to have musical memories and to actually have memories of the 60’s, more than many can probably say. 🙂 I was glad to be in but not of that time period. But I do love the music. Glad you enjoyed the photo, too. That guy sits in our front garden and will be moving with us to the rental house, although he won’t have the lovely flowers nearby.

    My husband and I were 1965 h.s. graduates, so remember well the sixties and its music. It is what I have been writing about in my most recent story, ‘When Dark Closes In’ an sharing chapters on my blog. For today’s generation it is ‘Historical Fiction’. But, for us in our sixties today it was our generation, rocking to the beat of the Beatles, Jimmy Hendrix (I think his name was) the Mamas and the Papas, etc. We didn’t all do the pot, or ride around in VW vans with flowers on it or in our hair, but knew and went to school with those who did. I am thankful though we didn’t take that ‘trip’ as it was often one that took them down a dark and lonely one.

    • Joyce, I was “in” but not “of” the 60’s, but I didn’t graduate from high school until 1971, so I was a bit younger. No trips of that sort for me, either, and I was fortunately not to know anyone who had to go to Vietnam. Lots of good music, but turbulent and troubled times.
