Double Decker

Double Decker節日之10公里跑步

 

自從去年底全家一起參加5000公尺跑步後
龍嫂就計畫大家再來一次
不過這回是10000
公尺
我當兵也沒跑這麼遠過!

兩個女兒都在18歲以下這組
彣彣還是我們家最會跑的 是分組第一 (52分50秒)
彤彤
(1小時6分1秒)是分組第四
一直跟跑在她朋友Amy旁
Amy打氣

龍嫂 (1小時1分17秒)就快跑進一小時了!

 

我抱著一定要走回終點的決心
完成此次壯舉
費時約一小時十八分
比中華民國陸軍"急行軍"每小時八公里的速度快了些

生日聚會

印度同事為他們小孩一周歲生日辦的聚會

聽Joan Baez (瓊貝茲)演唱會(一)

 

高三時(1982),不記得是李志良或帥蛋帶來一套"西洋老歌"其中一卷是 Joan Baez. 那應該是我第一次聽到她的歌。Joan Baez 的歌聲當真是天籟。在她許多好聽的歌中,我特別喜歡這首Jackaroe (1963版)

 

收聽[audio:http://www.poowa.com/mymoo/jackaloe/Joan_Baez-Jackaroe.mp3]

 

 Jackaroe

There was a wealthy merchant,
In London he did well
He had a lovely daughter,
The truth to you I’ll tell
Oh the truth to you I’ll tell

She had sweethearts a-plenty
And men of high degree
There was none but Jack the sailor,
Her true lover could be
Oh her true lover could be

Now Jackie’s gone a-sailing
With trouble on his mind
To leave his native country
And his darling girl behind
Oh, his darling girl behind.

She went into a tailor shop
And dressed in men’s array
And stepped on board a vessel
To convey herself away
Oh, to convey herself away.

"Before you step on board, sir,
Your name I’d like to know"
She smiled all in her countenance,
"They call me Jackaroe"
Oh, they call me Jackaroe.

"Your waist is light and slender,
Your fingers are neat and small
Your cheeks too red and rosy
To face the cannonball"
Oh, to face the cannon-ball.

"I know my waist is slender,
My fingers neat and small
But it would not make me tremble
To see ten thousand fall"
Oh, to see ten thousand fall.

The war soon being over,
They hunted all around
And among the dead and dying
Her darling boy she found
Oh, her darling boy she found.

She picked him up all in her arms
And carried him to the town
And sent for a physician who
Quickly healed his wounds
Oh, who quickly healed his wounds.

This couple they got married
And well they did agree
This couple they got married,
So why not you and me
Oh, so why not you and me.

 

 沒想到1/4世紀後竟然還可以聽到她的演唱會! 有關演唱會的花絮下回繼續說。


Bhangra 舞

 

說到印度舞 我最喜歡的是這種Bhangra舞

聽說這是收成時跳的舞 難怪充滿歡樂氣息
