Lately, I have missed my music! While lacking time to do concerts, I still enjoy playing my Strumstick at the Farmer’s Market, around a campfire, or the occasional small presentations that come up. Last weekend, Chad and I hosted a small party in Hillsdale, honoring Mom and Dad. Towards the end of the evening, we sang songs by lantern light, courtesy of Dr. Jordan.
A “Twitter friend” shared a song recently that I was unable to get out of my head, so it wasn’t long before I searched for the chords and began practicing. Songs like this provide a strong connection to the Highland Scots, who have always held a dear place in my heart. The Scottish people are some of the most stubborn, difficult, hard working, and tough individuals I have ever met. In fact, during wartime, the kilted Highland brigades were known as “The Ladies from Hell.” If you ever get the chance, read “Born Fighting” by James Webb, and you will see how unique the Scottish (and Irish) are through their love of “the good fight” and how that toughness was a large part of the shaping of America.
So here’s my rendition of “Donald, Where’s your Troosers.”
Thanks for reading and listening! Happy Fall!
