Bring Me Sunshine was written in 1966 by Arthur Kent and although performed by American artists initially it became synonymous in the UK with the legendary and irreplaceable comedy duo Morecambe and Wise.
I hope my BMS brings a bit of colour and sunshine for you.

My thanks to all who commented on What Am I and special thanks to Annette {annettep38} and Ann {AnnChown} for their User Awards.

Ronnie.

Beautiful flowers, I like the title. I used to plant sunflowers when I was a child.. the most remarkable thing for me was they followed the sun all the day time...I wondered if they kept moving at the night as well...imagine, if there is no sunshine for them..oh, poor flowers..

An image full of colour and cheer to brighten up the dullest darkest day. The closest we get to a comedy double act on here is the dynamic duo of Gary Durbin and Ade Osmant, our very own equivalent of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, or perhaps more likely the chuckle brothers! lol
