Carry On Tuesday # 168

We Brits always have the impression that everything is bigger in the US! But when I was going through the lyrics to the song that's provided this weeks prompt, I realised (realized) that it's not the case when it comes to words! I copied and pasted the lyrics from a US web site and my British spell-checker went mad. For instance I spell favourite with 9 letters, but across the pond it comes in a smaller size with just 8. Then coloured 8, colored 7! The same thing applies to so many words, that I reckon a book translated from American to English would be a darn sight bigger! 


This week we are turning to The Sound of Music for our prompt. 

These are a few of my favourite things

Use as much or as little of the line as you wish then hand your URL over to Mister Linky. Don't forget to take a look at your fellow scribe's takes on the prompt as well.

To remind yourself of the lyrics and to see Julie Andrews in a clip from the film go to Carry On Tuesday Plus

  8. I did not use the whole line this time, but I think I was true to the spirit of the prompt. Thank you for sharing it, Keith.
