I AM TIRED!!! Well, it wasn't too bad today, a little more snow, they had to hire some men to shovel parts of the complex roof's due to the "Snow Load" Last time they shoveled here was 10 years ago, we have more snow this year than in years past, its just piled up all over and now there's not enuff private haulers with trucks to haul snow away from places like the Legion, Our Church, some business's downtown. We went up and set up church for tonights service.
Tonight was our "Prayer for Christian Unity" at church, above is Karl, Carl, Roger & myself who got to church kind of early, tuned up, went thru some new and some old songs, changed some chord keys so they would fit this finely tuned, low pitched "Bull-Frog" - "Screech Owl" voice of mine. The program included some of our area ministers, the reading of scripture, prayers for world peace, and then some mighty fine guitar pickin and singing with 4 part harmony. I have COPD and ran out of air on several songs but did my best and Roger took over where I ran out of air.
Rev. Jane, our Minister said we were going to start at 7:00 P.M. BUT, First Roger started strumming about quarter of 7, I joined in and then both Karls started and we broke into some unexpected good-ole toe tapping, hand clapping songs which WERE NOT part of the program!!!!!
We finally calmed down as I put Roger in a strangle hold after he shined the Bald Spot on the back of my head and settled in and We had a prayer of song and praise which the 4 of us always do with our wifes before we play at any gathering be it in or outside of church!! Then we went down front and the service started at 7 and we played off and on during the hour service. After the service we had a coffee hour and tons of homemade sweets, treats, cakes and cookies. Great Evening!!!
My friend Mark in Texas is holding his own, he's still managing to stay at home and taking it slow and easy and we keep praying for him and his wife!!!
