100 words July 1966

July afternoon 1966

I was at girl-guide camp
(believe it or not!) and,
saturday being parents' visit day,
mum drove over to take me out
(rescue me!)

We went to the nearby village
where the cobblestones on the edge
of the street were plastic -
they were filming Dr Doolittle -
yes, the original!

I think we saw Rex Harrison -
him they called Sexy-Rexy -
talking to the animals and
one or two other actors
dressed to kill

And some of the shops had a TV
lurking in the back room...
A draw! ...Score!... no, wait!
'They think it's all is now!'
