Since we visited Disneyland, Ava has been humming the tune to "It's A Small World (After All)" which played again and again during her favourite ride there. I've since realised it's also the tune played by the road cleaning trucks here to warn people that the roads are being sprayed with water (while our neighbourhood still has no running water, incidentally!). So it was an odd coincidence to read in my weekly British newspaper that the composer of the song, Robert B. Sherman, had died a few weeks ago. He was also the writer of many other Disney songs such as "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and "Chim-Chim-Cheree" (both from Mary Poppins) and nearly all "The Jungle Book" songs. Ava is going to be gutted when she returns from Shenzhen tomorrow.
