We had our neighborhood holiday party last night and it was so much fun! One of my neighbors is making me his new project - he wants me to sing at the Clubhouse one night - like a show that all the neighbors can come to! We'll see! I mean, it would be lots of fun for me but I just worry that not that many people would really be interested in coming! I sing musical theatre and opera - I know it's not up everyone's alley! Plus - I don't want it to seem like I'm some sort of egomaniac! I think if I do it - I'll invite a couple of my friends to do it with me - so it won't be so much like I'm just stroking my own ego... Oh well... We'll seel! Anyway - the party was so much fun! I love my new neighbors!

I did get them a monkey and a frog but they are the soft and squeezable kind in the form of a pillow. LOL

We went to our church's Christmas dinner last night and the woman who sings in the choir, the man who plays guitar and a woman who plays the piano were the entertainment. We sang along on some Christmas songs and the woman is a hoot with her lame Christmas jokes, some aimed at the guy. They do this each year and it's fun.

Dewdrop, I think everyone would have a great time if you did entertain. My sister has some neighbors who invite the whole neighborhood in to hear their kids play and sing. Of course, they are very good, not just, come hear my kids lousy playing because I want to show off---LOL I think everyone would enjoy a good show. The lady last night sang a few songs alone and she has a great voice. If you make a program out of it and did some sing alongs I know people would enjoy it.

When it was over she told us to look at the bottom of our chairs at each table and those who had a sicker on the bottom won the center piece. My hubby had the sticker so we got the center piece which is a cute Santa. Some had poinsettias.

She had some trivia questions about Christmas and gave candy canes to those who knew the answer. It was a big room so she had to throw the canes and it was fun to see if the guys could catch them.

Listen, you little Heatherist, you, if you DON'T do it, then June might personally have to come down to your neck of the woods and smack you! Are you KIDDING me??? I think it's a wonderful idea for you to sing/perform for your new neighbors! What a treat! I can't imagine that they wouldn't LOVE to hear you perform some Christmas songs this time of year!!!

So do it!

--Remember, June can always find your house and follow through on smacking you if you don't!

Munchkin-


Okay, this may be a long held secret on June's part, but ever since she was a little girl, this atheist loved this one particular Christmas Carol. --She never really heard (or paid attention) to the "God" portion of the song, as she was soooooo taken aback by the line "with tidings of comfort and joy." THAT is what captured little June's imagination....

So I suppose June has now "disclosed" one of her greater Christmas atheist secrets!


Take gentle tidings of comfort and joy care....

You are too funny! But I wouldn't be doing Christmas songs or anything - I probably wouldn't be doing it for a few months or so. I need some time to prepare! One of my neighbors told me it was my duty to bring some culture to our neighborhood! What was the point of having a professional performer in residence if she doesn't perform for the hood! Hee hee!

By the way - I always loved God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, too!!!

Just saw a story on the news about a chiropractor's office being hit by cars twice in one day. I thought maybe it was were I went once and IT WAS. Two old people. An elderly woman this morning stepped on the wrong pedal and went through the door, in the afternoon an elderly man went through the window, same mistake.

Makes you wonder if one should go around older folks who drive. Across the street is an assisted living center and they have the same problem with older folks having accidents, not as serious but still. I think I would give up my driving at that point. Thankfully, I convinced my mother to stop driving when the time came.

Janelle-
How very sad...But what you posted also made June think of how she had heard an almost similiar case reported on her local news...Not to mention that her 83 year old mother is still out there driving! Thankfully, mother is doing well enough to live independently and to still get around driving, but it's always scary!
