Second Life Fashion from ReadMeri | Morningtown Ride

morningtownride

When I was a little girl, my mum used to sing Morningtown Ride to me at bedtime. It’s an old lullaby, written and released by Malvina Reynolds in 1957 and covered since by many, including the Seekers. It has nothing at all to do with going for a morning bike ride, which is the theme of this picture.

But it is kinda charming and brings back warm, happy, secure memories for me 🙂

Train whistle blowing makes a sleepy noise
Underneath their blankets go all the girls and boys

Rocking rolling riding out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown many miles away

Driver at the engine, fireman rings the bell
Sand man swings the lantern to show that all is well

Rocking rolling riding out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown many miles away

Maybe it is raining where our train will ride;
All the little travellers are warm and snug inside

Rocking rolling riding out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown many miles away

Somewhere there is sunshine somewhere there is day

Somewhere there is Morningtown many miles away

Rocking rolling riding out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown many miles away
All bound for Morningtown many miles away

About:

Uber has a paramilitary theme this round and {Reverie}’s Heidi skirt is so cute and yet so fitting with the design parameters. It has sizes for Maitreya Lara and Slink Physique and Hourglass and  comes in 8 colours plus 2 bonus colours in the fatpack, and one extra colour in the smaller packs.

Fame Femme’s top is really cute and a nice fit, but doesn’t work well with physics (so I turned them off for the vid). Plus I tried to buy some boots from their store a few days ago, and due to some kind of vending problem and despite sending a couple of messages have so far been unsuccessful. C’mon Fame Lady! I want those boots!

Here’s some extra shots including the well lit, no shit. Click to see them larger.


Finally, here is my ‘jigging for the rigging’ video. Sadly, it’s not Morningtown Ride cus I hadn’t decided to go with my earworm at that point 😀
