Yesterday was Father’s Day in some countries (‘celebrated’ in September here in Australia) a day that I don’t ever remember being mentioned when I was growing up in England.  Dads were Dads – they were just there lol

Music is one thing I associate with my Dad – he loved to sing.

Singing Dad

We grew up with him singing – all sorts of tunes would come out of his mouth.  Naturally with him being Irish there’d  be the silly/fun ‘diddley eye di di’ make a noise numbers, then he’d croon like Bing Crosby and then he’d come out with something like these gems.

 

But his most favourite of all were Josef Locke songs

So my Musical Monday (memory) is this one – hope you enjoy it.
