I'm not too sure what most people think of when they think "mermaid"...
Maybe a romantic, graceful, fantasy creature
that glides through the waters enticing sailors at sea?
Not me! No, no, no....
My earliest and pretty much only memory I have of mermaids
is listening to my Dad and family friend "Klap" playing guitars and singing a song called,
" Minnie the Mermaid".
Have you heard it?
It was after years of hearing this song I began to realize that every time they sang it the words were slightly different.
Later when my two brothers and I gathered to compare notes on what we could remember were we able to put together the entire song.
It was obviously a fraternity beer drinking jingle!
Or as I say to my children a "very inappropriate song".
That could be why I couldn't find it on Project playlist.
In fact the song that I have playing right now on this blog is quit tame by comparison.
So, I dedicate this piece to Dad, my brothers and all you Minnie the Mermaids.............
This is the mermaid I created for Marilyn Butler for the mermaid swap.
I wonder if she knows the song? ~smile~
