    I really like this piece. Nothing beats the classics. That is why they are classics.
    Jesus saves.
    Glory lasts forever.
    Persistence is key

      Thanks DION ~ *Dear Hearts & Gentle People* really is a Classic as is GENE AUTRY (1907 - 1998) I love the concept of reading the GOOD BOOK (BIBLE) from FRIDAY to MONDAY we would all be the better for it ! Thanks for adding to OUR FUSION (METALS) there are 91 in the Periodic Table so there is plenty of Room for another POEM or TWO ! GOD is eternal so HE loves the tried & tested OLD THINGS ~ AMEN !

      Blessings and PEACE and LOVE
      Yours as always ~ ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

        Thanks UNCLE MIKE ~ Sorry I sent my reply as a a comment ~ please check ~ Thanks A & B 🧡🧡

      • orchidee

        Yes, good write A&B. I'm old too, from 1066 at least!

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          Thanks UNCLE STEVE ~ Pleased you enjoyed our presentation ! Perhaps with HIGH TECH etc we have gone a MICROCHIP too far ! Static Phones are tolerable but for ME (Brian) MOBILES are a *CONTACT BRIDGE* too far ! I sometimes wish I too could live for 1000 years and be a Professor of History @ Cambridge so I could say about any era *I know I WAS THERE !*

          Blessings to YOU & Your Precious Pooch
          Love in the SPIRIT ~ ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡 + 🧡

            Well, I might be on my (large) laptop all the time, not having a mobile phone (eh?), except it's too big to carry around. Did people carry around monitors the size of TV sets a few years ago?! Plus the big processing box thingy. CPU - Central Processing Unit. Isn't CPU in Star Wars or summat? I must take a tablet - I'm waffling on! Not a blue tablet though. Woof! Fido knows about them too. oohh.

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            Thanks MICHAEL ~ High Tech is *wunderbar* but very stressful ! ANGELA has a MOBILE PHONE because she in NZ ! I dont have one and never will ! MOBILES are mega intrusive 24/7 ! A big difference in the US is that in most of *God's Own Country* there is nothing really *ANTIQUAINTED* ! Thats why they all love the *OLD COUNTRY* Self worth & self respect is so important ! If we dont love (like) ourselves than noby else will !

            Blessings & Peace & Love
            Yours ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

            Old things have a scent and a presence which you bring out so well in this tribute to what or who has been around for a long time and deserves our respectful interest. Well said dear duo.

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              SORRY FAY ~ I replied with a comment ~ please check ~ THANKS B & A !

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              Thanks FAY ~ That is the BEAUTY of the UK many Old Things ~ epecially CHURCHES ~ are round each corner ! AND unlike the USA our Villages are so close together especially in the COTSWOLDS ! We need all our senses ~ Sight ~ Scent ~ Sound ~ Touch & Taste to really apreciate ANTIQUITY. In the USA one encounters IDENTICAL MALLS replicated in every TOWN & STATE and its happening in the UK with Car Friendly MALLS replacing the HIGH STREET. Bill Bryson (now exiled in NORFOLK !) advises one to visit the USA before it morphs into one big MALL ! Pleased you enjoyed our COLLABORATION ! Angela is very ENGLISH having been raised and Educated (Private School) in London but she did spend many of her HOLIDAYS in Spain. She is like Chameleon and quickly adapts to a New Environment ! She loves NZ and has already morphed into 50% KIWI & MAORI ! When she sings & performs with the MAORI CHOIR she blends in perfectly. That is why in OCTOBER Im travelling 11,500 miles (LONDON to AUCKLAND) to collect Her otherwise she might stay for ever ! Thanks for your comments !

              Blessing & Peace & Love
              Yours as always ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

              What is it about the past - nostalgia!
              No, I think much more. Is it because we can't revisit it? The Greek statues, the Italian painters, cobbled streets and innocence playing.
              Thnx for remembering

              My love of old things has now become self love. Yep, i'm antique.
              My mirror though is definitely new because i don't love that.

              • ANGELA & BRIAN

                SORRY DA ~ I replied with a COMMENT ~ Please check ~ THANKS ~ A & B !

              • ANGELA & BRIAN

                Thanks As we grow older we do become more nostalgic ! Angela & I are only in our 30's but we have seen a lot of changes since the 1980s especially in the use of Mobile Phones ~ everywhere & by everybody, The same is true of Tablets and Social Media. In the UK High Street shopping has been replaced by Suburban Malls similar to the USA. ALAS ~ Change & Decay in all around we see ! WE are still OK with mirrors and we havent morsphed into our Parents yet !

                Thanks for sharing
                Yours ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡

              • dusk arising

                Whats this "sorry i replied with a comment - please check" check where..... and TBH why cant you respond as do most?

                • ANGELA & BRIAN

                  HI DA ~ Its a simple mistake when replying to a comment that many of us make. If one replies in the COMMENT SECTION ~ as I did ~ the the person who made the comment does not recieve it ! So the note I sent you was to alert you to the fact that we had answered your comment ~ but you would have to come back to the poem to read it ~ it appears as a COMMENT underneath your comment ~ OK !

                  Hope that is clear ~ I will be more careful
                  in future ~ Yours A & B !

                • dusk arising

                  ok thanks for replying ... i will know where to look in future

                  I too love old things especially in music and art.
