    As far as I'm aware Anna, he's happy and he's performing a few concerts in England at the moment.

    *I remember when I first heard him sing as I was walking along a balcony in a shopping centre.
    The people had him singing in the background for some sort of beauty contest.
    I've loved the song ever since........ "Karma Chameleon"

    * Blimey that must have been about 28 years ago.....Aaaaaargh!!!!!


    *Just as you were a fair maiden then, and still a fair maiden now. :D
    I was a just young man then, and still a young man now. :lol:

    Thank you for the memory. :thumbup:

    Hah, Anne.....Wurzel Gumidge, I used to enjoy watching old Wurzel with me children. :lol:
    Brilliant name too.

    Catweazle.... another brilliant name.
    And whooooo could possibly forget a completely different series for children.
    (on a Saturday morning)
    "Tales Of The River Bank" with "Hammy the Hamster" and "Roderick the Rat" :D

    (thinks to himself)
    Note to diary...start petition to bring back Hammy & Roderick...
    they, of the wet muddy paws variety.

    Anyway, Sir Elton it is :thumbup:

    Well done. :wave:

    And for those who don't know the song, lookey lookey below...

    Scarecrow (1967)

    You're too low to see me smiling
    When I'm flying in the air
    But you're too high to frighten me
    Pretend you didn't see me
    Pretend you didn't need me
    Pretend you didn't see me
    Pretend you didn't need me

    To frighten away all the lost and the lonely
    The sacred forgotten of yesterday's problems
    Your wooden construction was meant for infliction
    To penetrate pain with the thoughts from my mind

    "Can you see me scarecrow"
    Can you still feel free
    For all your love scarecrow
    And will you still be there tomorrow
    And will you still be there tomorrow

    Like moths around a light bulb, your brain is still bleeding
    From visions and pictures of nature's young raincoat
    If only my eyes were not pinned to your table
    My arms would be grasping the lilies of summer
    It's no good to be a scarecrow post
    And I've said it before, and I'll say it some more

    There was music in the air
    whenever she was there.

    Well that's what she said anyway,
    or she said something like that.

    O' I don't know... just think about it.
    I'm getting a headache trying to remember.

    I'm off to bed.
    Night Night.
