Flies 'n Funky Music

I woke this morning to the rousing tunes of 70's music -- "Play that Funky Music (White Boy)", "Copacabana" and "Roller Coaster" -- thanks to the 14-year-old son's newfound obsession with music from that era. What's that got to do with perfume? Not much, but I did found myself dancing around the kitchen spraying flies with natural homemade fly repellent (which works!) and got caught by my 16-year-old daughter who is now completely convinced her mother is the weirdest lady on the block. Oh well.

"North side , east side
Little Willy, Willy wears the crown, he's the king around town
Dancing, glancing
Willy drives them silly with his star shoe shimmy shuffle down
Way past one, and feeling allright
'Cos with little Willy round they can last all night
Hey down, stay down, stay down now

'Cos little Willy, Willy won't go home
But you can't push Willy round
Willy won't go, try tellin' everybody but, oh no
Little Willy, Willy won't go home!"

The Sweet ~

to the wafting scent of lavender and peppermint bug spray . . .


  1. It's a real '70s inferno in my patio this weekend, thanks to the radio while we're fixing a door and rebuilding a wall.

    I'm not sure how the neighbors to the left are feeling when they hear me singing along on Lady Marmalade as I'm potting up artichoke seedlings and the dood is swearing a blue streak at the 2x4 he just cut too short... :) Eh, we're harmless enough.

  2. Music makes everything so much easier, even if it does make the neighbors curious about us. Lady Marmalade ~ yeah!
