Having read the thread on hymns I wonder if we might enjoy a good virtual sing together? There'd be no one to complain or overhear us individually 'gieing it laldy'.
We could choose a hymn/song and set a time to start. Me in my small corner...

My air guitar is ready, you hum it and I’ll play it

Jane10 Mon 12-Mar-18 13:58:15

There may be other instrumentalists among us. All welcome.

Oopsadaisy12 Mon 12-Mar-18 14:10:54

They’d better hurry up then it’s nearly gin o’clock !

Oopsadaisy12 Mon 12-Mar-18 14:20:26

It’s a lovely day..... 28 degrees....and sunny

Jane10 Mon 12-Mar-18 14:21:11

Is that imaginary weather oops?

Elegran Mon 12-Mar-18 14:27:14

Am I imagining it, or did we have a REAL Gransnet singalong once, way back in the dim and distant past? It was done somehow over either phones or the net. Anyone else remember?

No Jane I’m on my Hollibobs!
But I will still sing if you like and play my air guitar for you .

Hhhhmmmm hhhhmmmm, cough, a loveleeee dayyyyyyyy, luvly day, luvly day.........guitar solo......
Traaa laaaa.
You are very welcome.

Yes elegran I remember. I think it was a Christmas hymn or carol but not sure!
It was a few years ago so maybe our tech has improved a bit since then!

Jane10 Mon 12-Mar-18 14:50:07

Gin O'clock came early oops? I'm having a cup of tea and planning to sing my party piece 'Come into the garden Maud'. It's best sung with no listeners. The cat's left already.
Gosh Elegran however did you manage a joint sing song?

Elegran Mon 12-Mar-18 14:52:07

I don't know how it was done, Jane. It was when Geraldine was editor of Gransnet, she must have known what to do.

Oopsadaisy12 Mon 12-Mar-18 14:52:49

Um nope Jane,
gin o clock arrived approx 14.00 hours with an umbrella in it.
The cocktail kind, not the one by the pool.

Oopsadaisy12 Mon 12-Mar-18 14:53:55

I think I have found a way to get a sunbed by the pool.
I shall sing them all a song!
See them run.....

lemongrove Mon 12-Mar-18 14:59:12

What’s that caterwauling noise I can hear? grin oh, sorry.....can I join in?
Ahem ( clears throat) ‘Blackbird singing in the dead of night, taken these broken wings and learn to fly, all your life, you have only been waititing for this moment to arrive, Blackbird fly.....warble....🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼

Jane10 Mon 12-Mar-18 15:00:32

That'll do the trick oops. I couldn't get a seat on the bus the other day. If it happens again I might give them a quick burst of 'Hit me with your rhythm stick'.

Oopsadaisy12 Mon 12-Mar-18 15:22:15

Ouch lemongrove, your making my ears Bleed! As my GS once said to me, bless his little soul Grrrrrr.
Jane, needs must as my DM used to say, a different choice of song though so you think? I think yours might be taken too literally .

lemongrove Mon 12-Mar-18 15:27:51

I would do the whole of ‘Right Said Fred’ ( the Bernard Cribbins one) if you all ask nicely......I know all the words ( but not necessarily in the right order.)

Greyduster Mon 12-Mar-18 15:30:48

Well, jane, 🎶I’m here at the gate aloooone, I’m here at the gaaate aaalone! 🎶 (Have we started yet??).

Greyduster Mon 12-Mar-18 15:31:31

Not really any wonder I’m alone is it?? hmm

Jane10 Mon 12-Mar-18 15:43:21

Confusing lyrics - Maud's waiting at the gate for Fred?

kittylester Mon 12-Mar-18 15:46:29

What'll you pay me not to join in - even virtually!!

We did have a real sing-a-long one Christmas I think Elegran and I didn't dare join in that one!!

Oopsadaisy12 Mon 12-Mar-18 15:51:08

I loved right said Fred and the Hole in the Ground!

Katek Mon 12-Mar-18 16:00:36

Can maybe help out with a few bars on the pianoforte........

nanaK54 Mon 12-Mar-18 16:05:22

Oh count me in - DH can accompany us on guitar smile
