After a lazy morning, we’ve gathered for our usual Sunday picnic. Ofelia has supplied Paella of course, and falafels and wraps.
Nano decided he’d have a little beaker of juice to drink, as the cups of tea would be big enough for him to swim in!
Winston asked Gino if the Paella was authentic enough, and Gino had to explain that Italy and Spain aren’t the same place!
So, it’s Sunday afternoon, and welcome back to #Vaarklife everyone! As you may know we like a traditional start to Sunday’s music, and here are a couple of songs from the film Brother Where Art Thou? Sung by the Soggy Bottom Boys!
In the film, the Soggy Bottom Boys are escaped convicts who team up with a musician and become an Old Time music sensation.
Arnold says it feels very odd to be chained up in prison outfits. Winston says “You soon get used to it!”
And now, we’re delighted to welcome Elton John back to the stage, for a duet with Kiki Dee! Don’t go Breaking my Heart!
That’s quite some jacket Elton!
Next on stage, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles with Tears of a Clown
I wonder why Arnold is standing by? And what’s Fury doing behind the scenes?
Ah! After the little problem we had last year with a fire-themed medley, this year, we’ve gone for Smoke instead. Fury is operating the smoke machine!
Next up then, of course, it’s Deep Purple with Smoke on the Water!
Everyone knows that opening riff, look at us all doing Air Guitar to it!
There’s certainly plenty of smoke. I think Arnold is looking a bit worried!
And now, a change of pace, it’s Miss Eartha Kitt, with Smoke Gets in Your Eyes. How lovely.
It is getting quite smokey though. It really is getting in everyone’s eyes!
Arnold doesn’t know what to do – his extinguisher will only make it worse! He shouts to Fury to stop with the smoke!
Ah it’s ok, Fury’s got a smoke clearing strategy sorted out. That’s doing the trick. It’s also deranged Miss Kitt’s hairdo a bit, but never mind.
With the smoke all gone, time for our next act – it’s the Weather Girls, with It’s Raining Men!
They’re gonna go outside, and let themselves get absolutely soaking wet!
Peggy asked Gino if he was planning to go raining, but he assured her he wasn’t.
And now, to close the festival for this year, our old favourites, it’s QUEEN! First up, it’s Radio Ga Ga!
We’re all joining in with the clapping!
And to play us out, a real anthem. We are the Champions!
Look at them play! Look at Freddie strutting his stuff!
We’re all swaying to the music. We can’t help it! We all feel like champions!
Well. There we are, all done for another year. We’ve had a fabulous time, and we hope you have too. See you again net year!
