fathers' day

                     old man take a look at my life
                     i'm a lot like you
                     i need someone to love me
                     the whole day through...

            - neil young
way before kids...during our numerous road trips, ian and i would listen to neil and sing along.  old man is one of my favourites...mostly because ian's voice harmonized beautifully with it.  he would belt out the tunes and then he would usually share a favourite memory of his father.

today...neil's harvest album is still a contender for the top of our listening pile (along side bruno mars, beyonce, walk off the earth)...our kids usually start smirking when their dad sings out the chorus but once in a while you will hear them join in.

with fathers' day coming tomorrow...i haven't been able to get these lyrics out of my head.  i think we may just take a little road trip...(maybe to his favourite fish and chips joint) and listen to him harmonize a little neil along the way.

wishing all those papas out there a wonderful fathers' day!!!


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
