Re: I smiled because...

Beautiful sunny day, we walked the dogs around 6pm.
The local vicar was playing his trombone out of an open upstairs window, played some songs where I knew the English words and could sing along.

Then walked past the local posh restaurant which had a kitchen window open offering takeaway, I ordered reasonably priced Fischknusperli and Pommes for tomorrow.

Then home for Hörnli, Zweibel sauce and Wurst from the BBQ.

Does the Sky Boat song sound familiar?
Speed bonnie boat like a bird on the wing
Onward the sailors cry.
Carry the lad that's born to be king
Over the sea to Skye

Ehmm, no. I'm afraid I don't know that one.

Re: I smiled because...

"The Skye Boat Song" is a late 19th-century Scottish song recalling the journey of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) from Benbecula to the Isle of Skye as he evaded capture by Government troops after his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746.

I believe the lady working at the post office where I live, was an actual witness to the very event you just depicted.
