I started working on a Chinese Zodiac album a while
ago. This one is a bit long, so I put it out as a separate
entity. I also recorded a few different versions changing the
names to suit a variety of children who were in my life at the
time. It is actually a kind of song/story but that's what I do.
I make things up and sing them, read them publish them or eat
them. Yeah, I also like to cook once in a while.
It's been quite a few years since I stopped working on this project. I didn't
realize how many until last week when I played this to my youngest granddaughter
who is going to be five this year. I guess I need to record a new version with
her name. In the meantime, I am working on a few more animals at her suggestion.
So far we've come up with "A Horse's Date," "Rose and Monkey" and "There's a
Rooster in the House." A word of warning might be in order here. The
completed zodiac album will have some like "The Year of the Pig" and "But I'm a
White Rat" that will not be quite suitable for children.
