In my youth, I was a musician in the Royal Canadian Naval Reserve. I didn't think much about the fact that I was in the military; I was just excited to get paid for playing clarinet. And I travelled across Canada and snagged a husband to boot!
When we were living in Montreal in 1991, we belonged the HMSC Donnacona unit. At Christmas, we played a concert for patients at the Chest Hospital. Guess who was conducting the band for part of the concert?
Yep, that's Master Seaman ME. And Gordon is playing tenor sax under the stars on the wall at left (the guy with the beard.)
That floor looks very reflective! I hope we didn't deafen the poor patients.
