Covers Worth Hearing

Last year, I watched an Asian young man singing a Jim Reeves classic, which almost brought me to tears. It is a beautiful Jim Reeves song, and the cover is performed by Jajai Singsit, from North East India. His voice is a loving tribute to Jim Reeves, his idol. I posted the video last year… Continue reading Covers Worth Hearing

August 10, 2020 at Wreck Beach

I want to begin by stating that Dr. R. Wilson, my family doctor, retired today. And although I was given lots of written notice of his retirement, I have not been able to get another doctor here in White Rock. But I am not complaining.

The retreat will allow me to… Continue reading A Hasty Retreat
