[Here is] an mp3 of my father singing the song while accompanying himself on piano, and a jpeg file of dad enjoying his favorite Ten Mile activityÖfishing.
I donít know exactly when the song was written but, since I donít remember a time when it wasnít being sung, I suspect it was penned sometime in the late 40ís or early 50ís. The song has been a lasting memory for many of the families on the northwest shore for decades; from those in my parentís generation through my childrenís generation.
