Three Muses challenge..Masculine..

I couldn't resist doing two pics for the challenge this week. Hope you enjoy.

As we stroll down Pic-Piccadilly in the bright morning air,
All the girls stand and stare,
We're so nonchalant and frightfully debonair.
As we chat to Rose, Maud or Lily
You can see the way their boy friend's frown,
For they know without a doubt that their luck's right out
When they see a couple of Men about Town.

As we stroll down Pic-Piccadilly all the girls say 'Who's here?'
'Put your hat straight my dear,'
'Why it's Marmaduke and Percy Vere de Vere!
As we doff hats each pretty filly tips a wink at us and then looks down,
For they long with all their might for a red Hot Night
When they see a couple of Men about Town.

Another memory from hundreds of years ago..... my friend Sheila and I used to dress up in top hat and tails, complete with silver topped sticks to perform this on stage for many, many concerts and music halls. Even touring round the villages!! With dear cousin Freddie accompanying us  'on tour'.
We even performed one night with a baritone 'who had sung before the Queen'! 
I didn't half giggle!!
Happy, happy days.

Thanks for visiting. xx

Once more Dahling! lol I can remember it all, and the man that "sang before the Queen" On the Road to Mandelay - the more you shushed me, the more I laughed! I think that occasion was at Gresham School?? Yes! Happy days indeed!

OMG, how many lives do have? You did so many different artsy stuff you probably are 247 years old! If not, your day have nothing less than 48 hours. Or maybe you have cloned yourself. I would love to read your memories, what a fascinating woman you are!
Love the both pieces, especially the first one, could you please introduce me to the handsome gentleman?
