    Nothing formal arranged, still dealing with covid, but I thank you for the reminder...
    My great Uncle was there that day, on Juno, and for him I will certainly play a tune...

      I'll also play a tune for Pipe Major Sam Scott who landed that day, playing pipes, with the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa....my Regiment. He went on to teach pipers in the post war years in the Ottawa area, including my teacher...Morag Jamieson....So in bagpipe teaching world, he's my Grand dad as well as being a fellow Cameron Highlander. I regret I never met him...

        Ah, Lochie... and to All,

        On this D-Day... the 6th of June... 2021...

        Yes!!... we are all... still... and indeed!!... held stuck in these
        COVID hard times!!

        And I... also... have nothing formal set for today... but as with
        the recent past U.S. Memorial Day... I shall journey to a small...
        ... rural... and not much visited... U.S. Military Cemetery... and
        play there... though my heart shall also be in Colleville... and
        on Sword Beach... where I have played on D-Days past.

        The much-wanted Good News!!... is that travel restrictions in
        France having been lessened... there shall be... a smaller
        contingent there... today... of those who have come there
        in years past... to play the pipes...in Colleville... and on
        Sword Beach...

        "Lest we forget--Lest we forget."

        Regards to you... and to All,
