Husky Hits - Jan 8 2017

The most common interpretation of the song Auld Lang Syne is that it is a simple farewell to the good and bad times behind us. In the fifth verse though the song says:

"And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give me a hand o' thine!" 


What better way to start the year than a hopeful wish for friendship and collaborations to come?
