Owed to Abba

ODE TO ABBA
 (A Garland of ABBA Songs)
(by TōnFerns)

She was a Nina,
Pretty Ballerina,
a Chiquitita, a Dancing Queen, 
She said ‘Take A Chance On Me’
And I replied 'Why Did It Have To Be Me?'
'Knowing Me, Knowing You'
‘Does Your Mother Know’ ? I asked
She said, no, 'It’s The Name Of The Game’.

‘I’m a One Man, One Woman’ you know? I replied
She said, 'I Have A Dream' Tony 'Fernando'
‘Lay All Your Love On Me’ she added 
I’ve a dream too, I confided,
We both then said "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do"
'Super Trouper', she went on,
‘Andante, Andante’, take it slow.

I sent her an 'S.O.S.'
'The Way Old Friends Do'
I said 'When All Is Said And Done'
'I Let The Music Speak'.
And then we both joined in chorus
We sang 'Mamma Mia' 
'here I go again, how can I resist you'
My my, just how much I've missed ya.

In the end the Winner Takes It All
She Thanks You For The Music 
Saying Honey Honey
Hasta Mañana until then.

Tony in a Mini



BACK IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS
 - TONY IN A MINI  -

Dubai 1970 - Austin Mark II - 1100 cc 4 door sedan - 4 cylinder inline transversely mounted engine - 4 speed manual floor shift gear 4F+1R - Petrol, single carburetor.

This vehicle, my first - the Austin Mini Minor - was a real marvel - one awesome, simple and convenient form of transport, and a practical piece of engineering - front wheel drive, transverse engine, standard track, typical big steering wheel and easy to handle. It seated five passengers including driver, with space for luggage behind the rear seats with a spare tire to boot.

They were popular in the late 1960s until the mid 1970s.
