Once more Friday and the great meme from Trav's Thoughts:
Since last week was Veterans Day originally Armistice Day, I thought it might be interesting to turn on the way back machine again for some of the songs of WW I.1. Grab the banner, make your post title Five on Friday, and be sure to link back here.2. Go to Playlist.com to make your play list of five songs. You may choose a particular theme to share with us, or post random tunes if that's your vibe for the day. You can simply post the play list, or you can add a little summary about what you are sharing.2a. Don't feel restricted by the tracks listed on Playlist.com. And don't be discouraged if the Embed code won't work. You're welcome to use any type of media to share your Sets.3. Be sure to sign Mr Linky so everyone can visit your Set.4. No tags, but feel free to invite your friends to play along if they need a post topic on a Friday.
