Hmmm, is there a song with that title?
LOL! Just a few more photos from that brief visit to London in October, 2002 ...
But it was a grand movie, updated into an early 20th century love story between the Mr. Chips character as portrayed by Peter O'Toole (and he was a hunk back then, I have to say, and I believe he received an Oscar nomination for that performance), and Petula Clark, who was a pixy middle-class girl with a Giant's Voice! The song she did at the - actually filmed onsite - Temple of Apollo - I have not forgotten yet. It was "Apollo" and morphed into "And the Sky Smiled Too."
There I am with my folding umbrella and my indestructible Laura Ashley bag (I've still got that bag, LOL!) -- Mr. Don insisted that I do this sort of "TA DA!" out of the phone booth, and I more or less obliged him. Long before Harry Potter, mind you! It's not really visible in this photo but in the background was the Trocadero Club - I mean, the HISTORIC Tracadero Club, the one that set the mode for all the other Tracadero Clubs all around the world.
During the approximately 8-hour flight over to London from Montreal I'd taken off my shoe-boots as we settled in for dinner, a movie, and then fitful sleep. My feet had swollen up so much during the "over night" flight that the next morning as we were approaching Heathrow to land, I could not get the damn shoe boots back on my feet! Finally, shoving and mightily heaving and with some assistance from Mr. Don, I was able to get them back on, but not laced up. The laces came out, and stayed out until 24 hours after we landed in Madrid. During the long flight back to Montreal which was, I believe, a direct flight, no transfer in London (I was sick on the way back and do not remember much as I was mostly flopped over Mr. Don who carried me around until we got back to Montreal, by which time I was miraculously restored to health -- but that's another story...)
