Send some canned sunshine
And do it by registered mail this time :-)

ladycharnley

Oh dear, that is a shame, it's very sunny here I'm sorry to say Starlord. I'll send you some more :)

starlord

Just been out on a doggywalk, Lady C and your special delivery didn't arrive. One dominating colour: grey.... at least it wasn't raining... yet !

ladycharnley

Goede nacht en slapen goed Starlord - thank you for the music (cue Abba song - lol) - Sorry about the lack of sunshine, will send you some tomorrow.
Welcome back squishy and good night Aggie :))

starlord

Been singing it, Squishy? For old time's sake :-)
Indeed Lady C; hope Squish is here to stay now :)

ladycharnley

Hi squishy - feels like you've been gone ages :))

squishy2

Rain and hail here -- yesterday we had thick snow in the south somewhere! I would not have known this singer - but I remember the song.

starlord

Yeah right... Been waiting for months now, it still won't come :-(

aggie

Oh sorry starlord....soon that warm weather will come your way.

starlord

It has been pouring with rain here from the moment I got up, Aggie. Sky is completely grey. Not a tiny blue spot in sight. We're limited to two seasons here, Autumn and Winter. Just read in the paper today that it snowed in the UK. Over here we've got 9° C now.
Would love to hear you sing 'the birds and the bees', so let's hear it ;-)
So you and Lady C took all my sunshine away? That's not nice, is it? :-(

ladycharnley

Good morning Aggie - hope you slept well and yes I have sunshine too :)))

aggie

I remember that song starlord. May sing it all day outside in the sun and garden in fact. Do you have any warm sunny weather yet? Hope so. Have a great day.
Congrats to you Major D.
Mornin' there LadyC

starlord

That's not cheating, Major D... That's called 'doing research' :-)
Doesn't matter if he paid a tribute to Sam Cooke, it wasn't Sam Cooke... :-)
You see, even one hit wonders will be found eventually.

MajorDon

It was Clue 2 so I went to Wikipedia deaths - I feel like I cheated :(
Lots of discussions with Lady C over Sam Cooke and we were close 'Akens toured regularly since 1965 and included a tribute to his mentor, Sam Cooke, in most of his shows'

starlord

The cheering crowd is getting out of control :-)

ladycharnley

The birds and the bees Major Don - well done - round of applause for the Major :))) LOL

starlord

Oooops forgot.... WELL DONE, Major :-)
Your spot in the EHoF is hereby confirmed

starlord

Something tells me that you knew it from the start, MajorDon :-)
Jewel Akens (Houston (Texas), 12 september 1933 - Inglewood (Californië), 1 maart 2013)
His one and only hit was 'The birds and the bees' from 1965.
Speakers up and sing along...

MajorDon

The Birds and the Bees

MajorDon

Sorry to do this everyone - jewel akens

starlord

Not even Solomon Burke

ladycharnley

not Solomon Burke ?

starlord

Alas, Lady C...
Here's clue 2: He sadly passed away in March of this year at the age of 80.

ladycharnley

Harry Belafonte - Teddy Pendergrass ?

starlord

No Bobby McClure MajorDon...
But you're all giving great suggestions for the coming days / weeks :-)

MajorDon

bobby McClure?

starlord

Clue 1: He's an American and he had indeed only one hit.

starlord

No Lady C, not Little Richard, nor Sam Cooke :-(
And we're not going to twist either :-(
So sorry, Retiredjan. I'm afraid your husband is wrong for the very first time :-))))

ladycharnley

Is it Chubby Checker - lets twist again ?

RetiredJan

My husband suggests 'somebody Daniels' - is he right?

ladycharnley

errrm .... Little Richard ? Sam Cook ? lol

starlord

Well MajorDon, Lady C and Roerick... I didn't see the correct answer yet. Not to worry, it's still early, so someone is bound to recognize this one hit singer :-) I think so anyway. Over here he had one hit. And when I post the song, you'll sing it all day :-)

roerick3

Duke Ellington???

ladycharnley

Paul Robeson ? lol

ladycharnley

Good morning Starlord and Starlord fans :)) Well what a handsome chappie - I don't know who he is so here's some guesses, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles (without his glasses) or Johnny Hartman?

MajorDon

no, not really Starlord :)
