Please Raise Your Hands For The Templeton Three



They travelled from state to state, John, Maggie and little Emily, singing gospel songs. Sometimes it was hard on John being the only man, but as he was like to say, “Someone gotta look after my sisters”

Years later the three of them would gather and sing for pleasure, laughing about the good old days

Oh, those Templeton kids...you woulda thought they would make it big someday, but alas...

This was fun (but the song always terrified me when I was a little girl)!

I always wished that I had been in a trio like that - but there's that not being able to stay on key thing...

lydia - i only knew the song as an instrumental until recently thanks to my mum's tapes of The Shadows.

Watercats - lovely to see you back

Titus - email on its way as soon as i get my arse into gear

Bug - yeah, harmonizing with others is always the tricky part


Knightsheart - i so wanted to say more about the family, but i wanted to do the Flash 55 challenge (write it in 55 words), so had to leave it there
