A Hit Before Your Mother Was Born

We celebrated our wedding anniversary and Ailz's birthday by opening a bottle of champagne .I was surprised at how quickly it went. My mother kept asking what we were drinking and why.

I found a recording of Champagne Charlie and played it for the company's edification. Every time the intro to the verse came round Ailz signalled her displeasure. I told her it was real working class music and part of her heritage.

And she calls herself a folkie.

1867 - wery good year, that was.  I miss it.
