No Crow About It



Spring is in the air. A couple of warm days at this time of year can make a great difference in your mood. It feels hopeful and I love it, love it, love it. My walk today was delightful though I forgot my camera. I have daffodils just peeking through and the cats have spent most of the day outdoors. They love it too.

My daughter is coming home tomorrow. I'm pretty excited. I'm hoping my son will come home for the weekend too. I need hugs!

In the Pines is an old song from the 1870's. The Wikipedia entry for the song is pretty interesting, if you're into that sort of thing. If you're just interested in hearing the music go on over to Page Two where I've uploaded versions by Leadbelly and Dave Van Ronk. I've always loved this song. There was a huge art exhibit on the history of the song a few years ago at the Confederation Center of the Arts. It was very good with lots of old photos and handwritten lyrics etc. My friend who moved to Newfoundland in the fall does a great version of it.

Call me old fashioned, but I think Nirvana has the best version of In The Pines...

Yes, you're such an old fashioned boy. Thing is, I don't have any Nirvana cd's around the house any more. Their version is definately good.

Hey Mom, Sorry but I dont think I can make it over this weekend. I dont really have the cash to do so and I am also working Friday night. I would like to come home some weekend but who knows when. There is only a few weeks left of school so I might have to wait a little longer.
Have a good weekend with Oce.
Love ya.
