*********************************

Well I went and been and done it .........
It wasn't as bad as I thought.................
I don't think anyone recognised me......
& I have not been converted .................

Yes on Wednesday night I went with Annie Mouse to see Cliff Richard and the Shadows at the Liverpool Echo Arena.
It looks like that Annie Mouse didn't want anyone to know she had gone to see him either..... how strange as she claims to be a huge fan of his .....?????
I sang along when I new the tunes ... Summer Holiday, The Young Ones etc and tapped my foot to the beat of the ones I didn't know..........& was on my bestest behaviour.. I sang along only a few chords in the style of a pub singer and I only mentioned a couple of times that he was miming ... which of course he wasn't I was just being mischievous ;-)

All in all a great evening which started with a lovely meal at Wagamama.
Followed by a fabulous sunset over the Mersey and then a dessert of Cliff .... Annie really enjoyed it and I think she enjoyed it more as she kept saying .... 'who'd of thought after all these years you would be sat next to me at a Cliff concert!!!''..... Yes indeed who'd of thought it ??.... never ever me in a million gazillions years............

has cliff had surgery?

Dear Annie M ~ you must admit that me as a Donny fan would find Cliff cringe worthy .... however, he put on a good show with the Shadows ..

I knew the words to a few tunes but there were an awful lot I had no idea whet they were lol

I am glad though that you had a good night and that was the most imprtant thing :-)

70steen said...

Olga ~ it was great to hang out with my bessie mate ...

Tell your blogmistress not to worry as I am terrible blogger too just now .. just get your cups over to Manchester as soon as you can ... oh btw Replacement Bear is coming back to the US and he may have a special friend with him ... I will say no more ;-) [miss you too xoxox]

NM ~ I am pretty sure he has had a nip and tuck here and there (oh and a good treatment of hair dye)... for a guy of 68 he is looking pretty young .....

Caught the tail end of the Piers Morgan interview with Sir Cliff. Was hoping for a few startling revelations but no such thing.

As for Sir Cliff.....he has started to remind me of a tortoise somehow...

John C said...

Donny, Donny, DONNY, it's ALWAYS about DONNY!

:pouts:

70steen said...

Diane ~ I am amazed that nothing 'startling' has ever come out about Cliffs life ... he is (or appears to be) whiter than white [however a tour guide in the former Yugoslavia said otherwise to me back in the 80s]

I know what you mean about a tortoise though .. Annie cover your ears ....

70steen said...

JC ~ aw sorry hun there will always be Donny in my life waiting in the wings .... swoon ;-)

John C said...

I'd say something really uncouth about Donny, but then I'd regret it and all that stuff.

It's not like you ever...dated him, 70s.

...ya didn't, did ya? (wondering look with sad eyes)

Last week on Dancing With The Stars, Donny got carried away with himself and there was a huge 'intimate moment' with judge Bruno Tonioli. There was a comment about how he won't be able to go back to Utah after that.

However... he is doing quite well in the dancing.

Will you still swoon over him sis?

(I thought John might find some cheer in that little story...)

fracas said...

Oh... but I originally intended to post and ask:

"Who is Cliff Richard?"

:giggles:

John C said...

Fracas, if Donny were gay who would he do?

John C said...

[runs...like...the freakin...WIND!!!]

70steen said...

John ~ I have dated DONNY many many times [in my dreams lol]

mwah x

70steen said...

Dear Frac ~ OMG what are you saying ... I so wish I could see it over here ... mmm?? Maybe You TUbe has the clip of ot !!!

70steen said...

Dear Frac ... don't let Annie Mouse see that :giggle: ;-)

70steen said...

John .... mmmm?? you can run and hide but I will find you ......

John C said...

70s: And I Ellen Degeneras, look what happened to her after?

And I'm not afraid of you finding me. It's what you'd do after finding me that...

...red, concentrate and close eyes thinking of the word red in blue.

Anonymous said...

oh you are all so funny i nearly want to laugh.

ears closed and mouth almost shut.

fracas said...

Not to worry sis... your Puppy Love issued a disclaimer the next week and they showed the whole thing from a different angle to prove there was NO kiss.

Bruno is trying for Aaron Carter now. He owes Aaron anyway... since all the judges made poor Aaron cry last week.

(Donny does always do well in the dances though. He did a fab Charleston this week)

Sorry John. Would you like me to see if Marie Osmond is still free and then you and she and 70s and Donny could double date?

Anonymous... sometimes I think it is we who should keep our mouths almost shut. lol. I'm sure that old git would agree... if he were only here...

70steen said...

dear Annie ~ you know it is all done in the best possible taste as Kenny Everett used to say :-) x

70steen said...

Dear Frac ~ I knew he wouldn't have snogged Bruno ... he would never be untrue to me lol

ooo a double date with Donny, Marie, John and I .....sounds like an absolute hoot hee hee :-D
