    Dear Dina,

    Please don't feel like you should say sorry - the 'Silly Circus Saga' was just a bit of silly banter I thought up, while I was watching music videos.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the Nellie the Elephant video though. It was fun making up a silly new story to post about Nellie and watching that video cheered me up - it's such a classic from childhood and I found it fun to watch!

    Love Kayleigh x

    Roll-up, Roll-up! - take your seats, sit back and relax - the second half of the 'Silly Circus Saga' is about to begin. ....LOL ...

    When we last saw Nellie the Elephant, she was enjoying a care-free retirement in the jungle. But since then, I've heard the jungle drums drumming very loudly - with the news that Nellie has got itchy feet again! Apparently, she couldn't get her ambitions as a circus performer out of her head (because, of course, 'Elephants Never Forget'!).

    So, Nellie packed her trunk (again!), said goodbye to the jungle, and trump-trump-trumped - her way back to more familiar pastures!

    But, there is a twist in this Silly Circus Saga's Tail! '....

    And Leppard, if you thought the 'more familiar pastures' meant you - I'm afraid your bubble is about to be burst!

    The poptastic news is that Nellie has successfully trumped all the way to 'Circus Pastures, New!' - and she says it's an exciting place, where the music is very popular!

    Nellie no longer wants to be a Rockstar's Groupie (sorry Leppard!) - but she is very happy being the BFF of a famous Pop Princess instead (who also happens to be the Ring Mistress at the Circus where Nellie now performs!) LOL....

    Now that today's performances are over, I would like to thank you all for reading my 'Silly Circus Saga'. I hope you enjoyed it and you found my variety of home-grown corn palatable enough! - and, hopefully, you found the performances in the Circus Ring entertaining too! LOL

    Love to everyone
    Kayleigh x

    P.S. ....
    - What did the peanut say to the Elephant?
    "Nothing", because peanuts can't talk! LOL

    - Why did the Elephant paint his nuts red?
    So that he could hide in cherry trees! LOL

    -How do you know when an Elephant is under your bed?
    Your nose is touching the ceiling! LOL

    - Why do Elephants paint the bottom of their feet yellow?
    So that they can hide in custard! LOL ....
    ... and have you ever seen an Elephant in your custard? ... No? - well that must work well then!! LOL

    Anyone fancy a trip to the Circus? - I know I do! But this Leppard's circus experience might not be tame enough for everyone, and it might be rockin' way too loudly for others! (and my request for Leppard to turn the volume down, might have fallen on 'Def' ears LOL)!

    Entrance into 'Leppard's Circus Experience' (aka Def Leppard's 'Animal') is free - just click on the link below, sit back and relax, and the performance will begin .....

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=d5v4IxI_qBY

    I hope you enjoyed that circus experience, as much as I did!

    Unfortunately, I've had a complaint already! One of the Circus employees, Nellie the Elephant, complained that the music was rockin' so loudly, it gave her a couple of huge-ear-aches!! Yikes Leppard, hopefully Nellie won't sue you for work-related injuries! LOL

    ... and, luckily for Leppard, Nellie decided to ignore those 'where there's blame, there's a claim!' adverts on TV. However, she did pack her trunk, and then trump-trump-trumped-off - in search of pastures new, in the jungle! .......

    Love Kayleigh x

    P.S ....
    Did Nellie really retire permanently from being a circus performer? - or was it just a "phase"/"mid-life crisis" she was going through?

    And, what about her ambition to be the World's most famous performIng Elephant? - was Nellie really happy to step out of the circus spotlight permanently, and leave all that fame to Dumbo?

    This 'Silly Circus Saga' is To Be Continued (later today, on this thread) ......including another performance in the Circus Ring, but from a famous popstar this time (I won't ruin the surprise - but perhaps it might be "one for the boys"??? LOL) .......

    Hi Dina,

    After singing for you yesterday, Nat has said that HE would L-O-V-E to sing to YOU again, if you don't mind..... (he said that it's quite a cute video-clip too! ..."but, of course, not as cute as you are, Dina!!", Nat hastily added!!) ......

    I hope you have had a more restful day today.

    Love Kayleigh x

    Hi Dina,

    An email is winging it's way to the Consultant as we speak! LOL

    ... also, the wonderful Nat King Cole has entered the building and has taken his place on the stage ready to sing for you (ie in my post above) - and he doesn't mind singing a different song, if you like - any song requests are always very welcome!

    Love and hugs,
    Kayleigh x

    P.S If you like listening to classical music sometimes, I hope you will enjoy 'Autumn in New England' (by one of my favourite Composers, Vivaldi):-

    What an interesting idea, Kayleigh! Perhaps you could email the consultant to request it on my behalf.

    I like the song, Autumn Leaves, but I'm afraid Acker Bilk brings back unhappy memories so perhaps a sung version? Nat King Cole sang it beautifully.

    Good evening Dina,

    As you have had a busy day, I thought you might like some restful music to listen to, and as it is Autumn ....

    All you need now, is one of those lovely Doctors to give you an aromatherapy massage.

    I'm sure they wouldn't mind, as to them you are are their perfect patient - who is as cute as 'bingo number 42'!

    .... and I think they should be on a massage rota, as their leaving gift to you, before you go home!

    Love and hugs,

    Hi CC and all,

    Yippee - The Fisherman's Friends have got their own website!
    (suddenly, I have become a fan of Cornish sea-shanty singing fishermen!).

    Sorry the link to the second video clip didn't work for you CC - its also on their website - the link to 'Meet the boys' (the real thing, rather than the actors in the movie!) is listed under 'Other Fishy Videos' near the end of the following webpage:-
    http://https://thefishermansfriends.com/videos

    I hadn't heard the song about 'Brandy' before - but I was very young in the 1970's and my memories of the music I enjoyed listening to (and dancing to!!), from that era, are mainly of a famous Swedish group.

    A quick trip down memory lane (no prizes for guessing which is my favourite song! - and it happens to be listed as number 1 out of their top 25) ...... time to get your flares and dancing boots on, everyone! .....
    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KY6EptNPJh4

    Love and 'Huggy Bear' hugs to everyone! (yes - I have memories of the 1970's TV show 'Starsky and Hutch' too! LOL).

    Hi Kayleigh

    That's an old song, I think from the 70's, you never heard it before?

    I don't remember seeing a Fisherman Friend movie, maybe didn't play here ? or maybe it did but I just don't remember it...

    I thought the group were real seamen, they look it. Men who spend a lot of time out on the ocean always have the manly look about them, I guess because they brave the elements out on the sea.

    Our commercial fishermen are considered the #1 most dangerous job in the country, and I can understand why,

    I enjoyed the trailer you sent of the film, the second one couldn't play in US

    Hi CC,

    What a beautiful song! I woke up fairly earlier this morning and listening to the song about Brandy was a lovely way to start the day.

    The Fisherman's Friends are a real singing group who live in Port Isaac - a Fishing Village in Cornwall. They are very good friends who went to school together and some of them are professional fishermen.

    A movie was released, based on their true story and how they got a deal with a major record company:-
    Movie trailer:-

    Video clip featuring the real Fisherman's Friends:-
    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Gg5d7cGtZY4

    The most popular fish to have battered (and usually eaten with chips) is cod but haddock is also very popular over here as well.

    I've heard of the other 2 fish varieties you mention but never tried them. Salmon, plaice and lemon sole are much more common varieties of fish over here. We do have calamari, you mentioned, as well.

    I am going to Google the group who sang Brandy, to see if there are any other songs by them on u-tube I can listen to.

    Very best wishes to you and your family.

    Love Kayleigh x
