Flutes and Little Arrows
I've been so busy this week I am lax in my scavenger hunters theme at ESN for this week. The theme is "Arrow". I don't have anything at Le Petit Marché that has to do with arrows, but I do have a Kokopelli metal figurine. Kokopelli is known among the Native Americans in the southwest cultures for being a fertility deity. He also represents the spirit of music, that is why he is depicted in many sculptures playing a flute. I believe he was a playful spirit as well, so no arrows for this guy!
I then continued my search for arrows at my fellow scavenger hunters stores and when I came to Bargain Express I found an old vinyl record (remember those?!) from the 1960's by a guy named Leapy Lee. His record was titled "Little Arrows". He was born Graham Pulleyblank in Britain but changed his name to Lee Graham (good move Leapy!). Little Arrows became a big hit in the UK in 1968 and was a chart topper. It came in 16th in the US. He never reached the pop charts here again, but I guess he did okay back home for awhile. So if you're looking for a little nostalgia stop on by Bargain Express and check Leapy Lee and "Little Arrows" out. And visit all of us at Ecrater Stores Network!
