Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The glesga eskimos
off topic a bit -- it is Cowal Games weekend and I went to the annual session at Ardentinny Bowling Club - it's kinda like Groudnhog day 'cept we all get older- - ! Still sing the same old songs, but that is what everyone expects! Brilliant night as ever -- I even tried out my newly composed ballad of the death of Baron Macintuner, an dastardly
local murder in 1685.
Anyway there were some Americans there, from Oregon - a group of old friends / folkies, sang and played both US and Irish songs and tunes. They were renting a house locally, a]might have been over to support people in The Games? I sang them Ding Dong Dollar - the only one I could remember the words for without prior notice! (see this old age?!)
