Killing three birds with one stone, as they say.

I have recently noticed that there are some people who take part in the various writing challenges who are using their loaves and are combining three in one post, how very clever.

Having decided to follow suit my post today will combine the 3 Things Challenge, the word of the day challenge and the FOWC word, so all I have to do now is think of a suitable subject and insert the five chosen words.

Now I don't want to waffle on writing rubbish just for the sake of it for my wit is as sharp as a javelin when pushed to it, for I do not want anyone pointing their finger at me by way of criticism of my efforts.

Oddly enough I had written earlier on another post how when writing I now sit at my desk drinking tea and devour biscuits or cake which was considerably better than in my youth when I would sit and chain smoke instead.

This post is now going to develop into a musical extravaganza as I post links to some wonderful music for your edification and delight.

I have a habit of listening to music whilst writing so firstly a link to the wonderful Harry and Edna on the wireless, who play wonderful gramophone swing and old time music whilst featuring guests and news on the current British vintage scene the link to the episode I am currently listening to is below.

They played a rather splendid track called Countless Blues by the Kansas City Six which for some reason reminded me of the song by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band called The Intro and Outro which contained such superb lyrics as "and a very relaxed Adolph Hitler on vibes."

The lyrics are posted here and the link for this quirky music is below, I assume some of you may be familiar with it. It helps to have a slightly off the wall sense of humour, but enjoy anyway!
