Seems like more has happened than usual.
In the tea room Thursday I played "How Great Thou Art" (as my own way to memorialize George Beverly Shea who died Tuesday.)
One man came up to me, put a big tip in my tip jar, and told me he so needed to hear that song that day; that everyone needed to hear that song.
And there was a party of ladies who all - each separately- told me they appreciated that song being played, in light of the horrors of the week.
So I played it again yesterday and today.... and got even more comments on its appropriateness.
So that was wonderful.... glorious.
I'd met Lorene earlier - many times- when she'd come into the tea room with her daughters. She always wants to hear "Blue Bayou" by Roy Orbison and Patsy Cline's "Crazy".
I am always happy to oblige.
And I was thrilled to get a picture taken with her!
They had quite a party for her in the party area.
I'd say maybe 30 folks were there.
On a different note, there is a new Prather in the world! Some of you (relatives on my mother's side) might think we have a new relative, but only in name (I think, anyway). (My grandmother was a Prather before she married her husband, Earl White. They had six kids, one of whom is my mom, who happened to marry Andy White, which means that I am a White on both sides.... pure White, if you will.
Jesse and Kristin Prather had a baby girl this week, Serena!
(I know many of my blogreaders know Jesse!)
Here are two pictures I got off of Facebook....
Isn't she beautiful?
And she was born into a wonderful family.
Well, there's more to tell, but I better go.
I do have a new poll up (upper right).
Thanks for voting!
