And, the answer was:

“When You Say Nothing At All”

 

Well, what can I say. B needs me, therefore she’ll never leave me and, if I have to be brutally honest, I did have a big wobbly on a wet rock when I couldn’t get a grip and B was there to catch my fall.

Don’t you think these words suit us perfectly?

It’s amazing how you
Can speak right to my heart.
Without saying a word
You can light up the dark.Try as I may, I could never explain
What I hear when you don’t say a thing.
The smile on your face
Lets me know that you need me.
There’s a truth in your eyes
Saying you’ll never leave me.
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me wherever I fall.
You say it best when you say nothing at all.All day long I can hear
People talking out loud
But when you hold me near
You drown out the crowd

Try as they may, they can never define
What’s been said between your heart and mine.

The smile on your face
Lets me know that you need me.
There’s a truth in your eyes
Saying you’ll never leave me.
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me wherever I fall.
You say it best when you say nothing at all.

Love Ben xx

Competition closed early

Friends, collies, singing dogs,

B got fed up of waiting for responses and posted MY competition on  HER Facebook group page, if you don’t mind. AND, she forgot the rules. It seems her friends know more about music than my followers, except David AA HeartPawPrint. Anyway, she was so surprised when Lynda got the right answer, with just one clue, that she told her she had won and stopped all my fun, seeing what songs my followers would come up with.

Here are all the other clues I would have posted. See when you would have come up with the answer.

3. Someone’s smiling in mine and B’s special song.

4. Our special song is about trusting and hanging around for each other.

5. B’s got hands that will catch me, according to our song.

6. Our song was the theme tune for a late 1990’s film.

7. The film was a 1999 Rom Com.

8. The film was Notting Hill.

Competitions are hard work… bed beckons.

a 220
And so to bed.

Love Ben xx

 

 

 

Retraction – my paws got stuck on 0

Friends, collies, clumsy pawed dogs,

What is it you humans say… ‘just testing’. I could pretend that I was trying to see if you were awake. However, the truth is… my paw got stuck on the 0 key.

The real value of the prize is £5.00 but please don’t let this put you off. You can get a lot for £5 these days: 10% of a bag of my dog food; 5 big bars of chocolate, or 2 bottles of Collie Wobbles.

Worth a go, surely.

Love from Ben, in slumber xx

And so to bed

 

Ben’s 2017 Competition – SingalongaBen

Friends, collies, humming dogs,

I seem to have surfaced from the coma that engulfed me after my second Munro weekend. I’m going to post my news in successive posts, a few days apart, once they are all written, so there is a coherent flow for my readers. Bet you can’t wait!

In the meantime, to keep you onside, I am launching my 2017 competition today. As usual there is a BIG juicy prize. The first creature, who comments on my post with the correct answer,  will receive a prize to the estimable value of £5,000. The exact prize will be revealed on 31st August. The competition is open to anyone who reads my blog. Not just those who follow it avidly. If I don’t know you yet please make sure your e mail address isn’t hidden when you comment.

Anyway, here’s the job.

As me and B career around Scotland – in search of a bag in which to put the odd Munro or two – we play a few jiggles on what passes for multi media in my van. Unfortunately, there is something wrong with the CD player and it all comes out soprano; the earthy folk songs that B likes sound very odd indeed. Four part male harmonies are given a whole new twist when belted out in A sharp.

Anyway, in the course of such musicality we have hit upon ‘our song’ and your job is to guess what it is.

Now fair enough the field is wide open so, I will be posting a series of clues to help you out over the coming weeks but, don’t forget, it’s the first right answer so why not throw in a wild card right now. You can have as many guesses as you like.

I’m so looking forward to seeing what you come up with but that’s enough head work for one day.

And so to bed.

And so to bed

Love Ben xx
