Eclectic Tastes


I had lunch on Saturday with my sister, Jo-Ann.
She is 16 months older than me.
 When we were kids we were 'joined at the hip'!

We also sang together during those years.
She has a much better voice than I do
but I remember singing a version of this song with her.

And who better than Anne Murray, a fellow Nova Scotian,
to sing it now.

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

    1. Thanks Joanne. Since I had just visited 'my Jo-Ann', I thought this appropriate.
      Sunny out there in the 'northwest'? Hope so!

      Yes, Jo-Ann and I were inseparable in most of our childhood. She taught me a lot.

    1. My mother did the same for me, Joyce. I guess it was one of those 'standard' songs that was taught to everyone.

  8. Sounds like a lovely lunch date, Jim. I know what you mean about 'joined at the hip'. I was like that with one of my brothers. Glad you had a good time.

    You picked a perfect tune for today. Fits well with the beautiful sunshiny day we're having. Happy Sunday to you!

  9. Anne Murray's version of this song is so much better than Frances's. (She was our next door neighbor when I was a kid and she had dinner parties regularly that were followed by sing-alongs. This was one of her favorites.) My sister and I could hear her through the wall and we'd sing along, too!

    1. Too funny! I bet those parties were great to listen to!!
      When I was in grade two I sang this song on the radio one Saturday on a kid's show....my I must have been bold!! But my reward was a jar of peanut butter....what more would a kid need?!

    1. Isn't she the best, Pat! We went to university at the same time and I attended a few of her 'before famous' concerts in Halifax. She is adored here, as you can imagine.

  14. Mrs. Tuna came from a singing family. Zillions of hours driving along with the parents with seven kiddos. My poor mom was always off key but she loved it.
