Dow, you should really enjoy all this syncopation. I’d like to know who wrote this tune - it’s hardly an old chestnut 🙂

Donough I’m not saying anything because if I start on, nobody will be able to stop me. I’m going to have a nice calm cup of tea now and think about kittens playing with a ball of wool, and a little kangaroo joey peeping its cute little chihuahua-like head out from its mummy’s pouch.

I must confess- we put the swing up yesterday- we have an older house with a big front porch, all viney with wisteria and clematis, and yesterday was a perfect summer day- only in the 70s with a little breeze- I couldn’t do anything in that swing but write the tune. Normally my style is more ‘traditional’- something just came over me…..
