SOMETIMES IT’S HARD TO KEEP IT REAL

I wrote this song better than several years ago, when Brian was still playing in a rock band, and I was a solo act.  That’s tough, but it’s even worse when one half of a couple isn’t a musician and prefers to stay at home.  After an in-depth conversation on the matter with my good friend, John Denver, I wrote this song for him and Annie.

Oh, Canada! (And it only took me 42 years!)

Well, there’s nothing like no choice to make up your mind for you, so here I am, after spending almost forty-three years as a Landed Immigrant, officially becoming a Canadian Citizen.  I’m still Scottish from skin to marrow, but now I get to be Canadian too!

I’m not exactly dressed for the occasion, as I thought I was merely ‘signing up’ that day, so I’m decked out in my travelling clothes.

 

 

It was a memorable day, and the only thing missing was the anticipated ride on the Mountie’s horse!
