Today my dad is very much in my thoughts as it is 130 years since he was born in London in the UK.  I think of him often but on special days he is very much in my thoughts.  He was born 8th October, 1885 in the reign of Queen Victoria.

My musical favourite for tomorrow is a song that Gordon McRae sang in the musical Oklahoma .. "Oh what a beautiful morning".  I remember enjoying that film in my youth and was so glad when I found this rendition on YouTube.  I am sure all young men sing when riding their horse and don't you just love dapple grey horses?  Hope you will enjoy this song and isn't it amazing how you can hear the words so clearly too.


  1. No matter how much time passes, we never get over missing our parents, do we?

    I loved the movie "Oklahoma!" -- they don't sing or make movies like that anymore, and it's too bad!

  2. I remember that lovely song, I've seen Oklahoma a couple of times, when It has been on TV.
    I like black horses.

  4. Oh Mimsie 130 years ago I love that you know that and still hold tight to it. Love this and the song. HUGS B

  5. 1885. Sounds like a long time ago when you say it slowly, huh?
