Subject: RE: Sheath and Knife
When you are "close" to a topic, what would otherwise be "common sense" can be downright absurd to you! I myself laughed aloud when I came to Hester's perfectly locial statement that "It seems unlikely that Ewan McColl made up his own lyrics in an archaic Scots dialect. Thus, it seems logical he was working from an existing text or source."

Of course, I could not expect Hester to know that Ewan MacColl made up his own name in an archaic Scots Dialect (he was born Jimmy Miller).

Glad you and Hester made up, Malcolm.
