Tie a Yellow ribbon around the ole oak tree by Dawn.

I'm coming home, I've done my time
Now I've got to know what is and isn't mine
If you received my letter telling you I'd soon be free
Then you'll know just what to do
If you still want me
If you still want me


Whoa, tie a yellow ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
It's been three long years
Do ya still want me (still want me)
If I don't see a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
I'll stay on the bus
Forget about us
Put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon 'round the ole oak tree


Bus driver, please look for me
'cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see
I'm really still in prison
And my love, she holds the key
A simple yellow ribbon's what I need to set me free
I wrote and told her please


Whoa, tie a yellow ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
It's been three long years
Do ya still want me (still want me)
If I don't see a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
I'll stay on the bus
Forget about us
Put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon 'round the ole oak tree


Now the whole damned bus is cheering
And I can't believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons 'round the ole oak tree


I'm coming home, mmm, mmm


(Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree)
(Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree)


(Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree)
(Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree)


(Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree)
(Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree)

Backyard clicks


They say you can photograph anywhere anytime...
They may be right.

I read an article recently about finding things in your back yard to photograph.
Birds, flowers, fences, animals, grasses etc...

Well I gave myself the 15 minute challenge, two lenses: lens baby and macro.
See the results. Not bad me thinks.. for 6 minutes each lens and changeover time.

Can you work out what they are?

The blue one has been taken using the lensbaby muse with one adapter ring, the light was dappled through the tree over the pool cover. The leaves were non moving, love a subject that is cooperative.
One Heebie flower peeking out in to the sun - GOTCHA! with the macro.
have a great night!
