That`s great easybeat, I think there is lots of songs and poetry to be written regarding reflection ......... even paintings!!! ( but that`s not musical yikes  lol)     

Peatle .....thanks so much for the lovely comment and yep, i like this song smile     

Thanks to TIGLJK, neo and CG for your very kind feedback.  Its a great song, one I enjoyed performing.

CG, that Janis Joplin version was amazing, she certainly has an amazing voice. 
neo ... lol I thought the same as TIG, where did 2019 go? lol smile     

Here is my attempt at covering Summertime ...... nearly at the end of the month already .....where does time go?!

Excellent cover neo ........... this really suited you vocally and you played it well     

No takers yet?     

Looks a difficult song to play neo, up and down the fret board in parts.  Well done for having a go at it.

Good question Bill ......
Well lets see .....
1.  I do cut my fingers nails because I just can`t play the uke or guitar with long nails (I am still trying to finger out how Dolly Parton plays that banjo with those long talons of hers).
2.  Busy busy busy is probably my biggest down fall to not playing as much as I would like too. With family, a household, grandkids, various groups I am involved with and various activities i am involved with ........... doesn't leave much time. 
3.  I have the type of personality that takes on too much and involved in too much ............. I need to learn to say no a bit more (not to people) but to myself!!! So I can do what I really want to do.

I wrote this yesterday after talking to a lady who works in our local supermarket.  I have known Jenny for years in this place. She always chats away when I go through the checkout with my groceries. 

JENNY -  13.11.18 

I walked into the local super market today
Grabbed a few things I needed, then off to pay
As my turn came to put the items on the counter
Jenny served me, it was a sad encounter

She told me she had bowel cancer
Told me having chemo
She had one more session to go
Before they decide what to do

Most likely an op seemed to be the best shot
But they had found shadows on her lungs too
That they can`t treat, not much they can do

As Jenny told me all this
She carried on serving me
The till beeping as it priced items
An otherwise normal day

As my groceries where packed and paid for
We said our goodbyes and adieus
I looked at Jenny and said
I`ll be praying for you

With a smile she thanked me
As I left the store
What a brave woman
And I thought Lord, not another sad

Good message in this Peatle, agree with finding out the truth and not just taking the media as the gospel truth.  I liked your presentation on You Tube by the way, you seem to have  the knack of making them  interesting. 

easybeat, I can imagine a song in your comments Fisher Folk instead of Fisherman
