DIXIELAND-COTTON BLOSSOM- COME ON LETS GET HAPPY

Now there was Happy Days, all in our prime of youth, we would just get together around a piano and Marinus's house and sing the night or week-end away.
Practice every Monday night at President Primary school hall, putting the magic of song and dance together. PATO, as it was known was formed many many years ago before television was in South Africa, and this group got together and entertained people around the country.

Memories and lots of happy times. You are lucky Bb to have so much on video. I remember you and Ria in the musical "Oh Doctor I'm in trouble" I think that was one of the best shows you ever did. I think it was more like every time Ria saw you her hesrt went "doom diddi doom doom doom" or something like that.
