Thursday Theme Song: back from the...

Flew Lufthansa out of Do-mo-de-do-vo
Didn't get to sleep last night
On the way we changed to three or four
       more planes
Man, we had a dreadful flight.

We're back from the USSR
But luckily it's just Russia now, boy,
It's not the USSR,
Not the USS,
Not the USS,
It's not the USSR.

Ah, reminds me of our Lufthansa experience where they switched planes on us and mixed up our seating so it was the worst flight ever. The attendants were wonderful but the management during the long journey back from Europe was definitely “off tune".

Very clever, Kay. I hope you're recuperating after your strenous flight. Blessings Jo

Leslie said...

I'll be singing "Back in the USSR" all day now. I'd change the lyrics to Russia, but it just doesn't have the same ring, does it?

It's to nice to see that you are back. You've been missed.

That song is in my head now!!!
And I love flying Lufthansa!!

SquirrelQueen said...

Love it!
This is the song that popped into my head when I read the comment you left for Anni.
The blue and white building is breathtaking.

Martha Z said...

You're back already? Well, since I have been gone and off the internet I have lost track of time.

@ Carola — Lufthansa wasn't the problem. We had three Air Canada flights after that.
And anyway, it was the Beetles who had a dreadful flight and I just left that line in. LOL

Oh, this is super. Loved your photo share and choice of song this week. Hope you'll be back to 100% soon, after your trip. You were missed.

Love the fondant castle! Very cute and sweet.

As I was travelling back from near Poland a few days ago, I was trying to figure out all the capitals of Europe. I had the capitals, I had the countries, but they didn't always go together properly. All those former Soviet republics really made me think!!!
