That’s my big softy bit done this morning…
It started with the Olympic closing ceremony last night. I told my wife this morning that it was great and had a lot of music that I enjoy, Queen, Beatles, ELO… Charlie and the Choccy Factory! So I said, “Aw, it was only missing my composer John Barry.” He done a few Bond themes amongst many other great film tracks.
Now when I got married to my lovely wife in Cuba 8 years ago, I had a magical John Barry piece of music playing when she was walking over a small wooden bridge to join me at the gazebo. I have also made a DVD with this music on from Dances with Wolves and it always, always, chokes me up. Sooooo this morning I was watching Breakfast News with her, before she left for work, and it had THAT piece of music on as the Olympic flame flickered and died to a lonely trumpet. A sniff and she looked at me and that was it face red and tears welling. “You big softy,” she said!
Gosh! Well that’s my moment what’s yours?
