Singing McCartney on his birthday

Today, I read several times that it's Paul McCartney's 79th birthday. A few minutes ago, I was sitting outside reading, enjoying the somewhat cooler air after a brief rainfall at the end of the hot afternoon, with the rainy scent still rising from the patio, and I heard my daughter Sara playing "Yesterday" on the piano. I came inside to enjoy it better and to tell her it was McCartney's birthday, but when she finished the piece, she surprised me by asking me to sing along with her. It was easy, as she has the lyrics on her sheet music, and I enjoyed pretending to know how to sight-read the melody. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 18 June 2021)
