    Blooming heck, Keith, that’s dark. Mental note not to wear blue velvet in future! 🙂

    You are turning soft, Keith! And I love it. So much said in so few words.

    I hope all is well, Keith. Great little sad story about the wonder of memories. And a little music by the Polish Prince never hurt anyone. 🙂

      It is and I trust it’s also with you. Until you mentioned it I’d forgotten that was his other name!

        I’d Googled him before I responded. I recalled that his father had changed the family last name and that he started using his middle name to avoid confusion with his father, But gosh, what a song. 🙂

    Dear Keith,

    Ah, I actually thought about this song when I saw the word. My bridesmaids actually did wear blue velvet. 😉 Lovely and tender story. You do have a softer side, sir.

      One of them may well have inspired this song! I’m pleased you liked my change of style, I can occasionally do it if I put my mind to it!

    The graphic is fabulous, Keith, as is the story, sad but beautiful.

    2 lives, 1 love, 1 blue velvet dress. Definately a tall task in 38 words. Well done!
