Grandma always said that her schooldays were the best and this is what influenced me to write this song about what she told me.

Makes me think
of stories my grandma told us kids- she used to ride on the back of grampa's Harley and wave at the cops. Hard toimagine... Thanks for sharing this with us, Steve, it is a lovely tribute to your grandma.

Hi Steve
A few things jump out at me right away... you are a natural singer... the melody tells the story along with the wonderful emotion that you seem to effortlessly pull out of your voice... those disonent moments in the string arrangement provide a tension for those moments... but I wish I had the lyric for the full effect... no big deal... it's not like I can't understand the words...

excellent work my friend

We used to have...
...a MJer by the name of Charlie Chen (he has vanished without a trace)who did this sort of thing. I've been missing his stuff. And you come along with this lovely little gem. Not enough of a connection between the generations these days. It's something to lament. So much gets lost. This tune reminds of the value of extended families and inter-generational contacts. Beautifully played and sung Steve. Well done bro!

Take care!

Like that
singing, especially the tremolo in then vocal cords. The guitar make a terrific backround. I like how you go back to the past and REALLY bring out a very special place in time! Lots of people when they write can loose the interest in the audience. But that is a special gift to obtain the audience's attention and you do that nicely.

This is a nice treat, to hear the first song this morning and have it be such a sweet one like this.

Wow Steve!
You really have a "Geddy Lee" quality to your voice. Beautiful story. You always hit a heart string with me on your acoustic stuff. Your voice is FILLED with so much emotion on this.

Great job!

Peace.
