Helluva Day
30 minute hearing test followed by 5 hours of balance testing to determine if I have vertigo (or not) and if so, whats causing it and if not, what I do have!!
So if I tip over why I’m toe tapping, could someone just throw a blankie over me!!

Their second song (Pack It Up) reminds me of George Formby’s “When I’m Cleaning Windows”. Thanks for posting!
