SCA they call it filking when you take a song's tune and change the words. Is that what they call it in the real world? At any rate, we filked a lovely lazy tune by Dean Martin called, "My Rifle, Pony and me," and turned it into a fire brigade song. I really enjoy playing the original song on my guitar, but once we got the idea of filking it, we couldn't resist it.
Here's the original:
And our version, with usual proviso that I'm no professional singer. It was nice to hear how much better my voice sounds with a good microphone set up, though, thanks to Andrew!
The chookies were out for a quite while yesterday and since it was hot, they had a good time burrowing the in the damp soil under my pet Hydrangea that lives just under our south window. On hot days, I make them a similar cool spot in their chook dome, but they made their own yesterday.
In writing news, I still have a couple more chapters of Freya and the Hairy Goddess to final edit, and after that it is formatting time for both kindle and print copies, and then once I know the final page numbers, I will need to get the cover finalised. Still, it won't be long now till Freya rides again. :)
