Oh heck – I’ve almost missed last weeks Saturday Centus, how did that happen??
As usual, the prompt is in italics and the rest is all my own work!
“Mama, how do we get the names we get?” I asked one hot day way back then, “ I mean what was it that made you call me Dotty?”
Mama turned and looked at me and a huge smile burst across her face. She didn’t answer straight away. Instead she found an old LP and placed it on the gramophone. From the black vinyl came the clear voice of Judy Garland “Somewhere over the rainbow”.
“That was the song they played when I first danced with your father”, she told me. With a strange, faraway look in her eyes.
