DR Elmore, I am so happy that your brother called. That made me teary!

DR Jennifer, that's so sweet of you! I knew all would be well, but I must admit I had no idea how long it would take! I am more stubborn than he, I fear.

I am, once again, nestled in the bosom of South Carolina and all things Palmetto State/South Carolinian/southern everything.

My flight was uneventful.  I was unable to sleep more than an hour in transit.  I was unsettled.  Out of sorts.  Ill at ease.  Once at my mom's house, I had a nice lunch of stew with corn bread...and then a four-hour nap.  Wednesday e'en, I went with my mom to Johnston's First Baptist Church to see a repeat performance of the chancel and children's choirs annual Cantata.

I was unprepared for this.  The choir was much larger than I've ever seen it, and this was due to the fact the church has a new choir director who, on Thursday, was graduated from Newberry College with a BA in some music degree.  Many choir members were friends from another nearby church he once attended.  And in the auditorium, at least half the pews were filled.  This was astounding for a Wednesday evening.

The cantata was pretty good.  I only nodded off a couple of times, but I was listening the whole time, I promise.

Yesterday was our trek to the climes of Spartanburg SC to visit my cousin Dot Jolley (87 years young) and share a meal at Wade's family cooking restaurant.  Happily, there was turkey and dressing on the menu this year (last year it was conspicuously missing and I was VERY disappointed).  I had the turkey and dressing w/cranberry sauce and two sides:  A most delicous sweet potato souffle and tasty fried green tomatoes.   Afterward, we visited the cemeter where my grandparents and great grandparents (maternal) are buried and placed flowers on the graves.

On our return, we shopped at Westgate Mall, where I bought a few things at CostCo, and then shopped at Dillards where I procured a couple of pairs of dressy trousers.

Last night, I prepared supper and surprised my mother with her first taste of pasta with pesto sauce.  She was leery...oh, yes!  Leery.  But...she liked it.   And then I teased her with another use we will make of the pesto sauce...as an additive to a turkey sandwich.  Smear some of the sauce on the mayo on one slice of bread...and that sandwich takes on a whole NEW and WONDERFUL dimension.

Today is kick-around Friday.  Nothing planned.  Nothing expected.  Take it as it happens.  We are going to Greenville SC on Monday.  We're having my cousin Debra and her hubby Rob for a spaghetti supper on Tuesday night.

Other than that, I shall endeavor to keep a tight leash on the rapid-fire pace each day seems to be taking.  I'm enjoying my visit...and hope it's not over too fast.

Ron Pulliam, I enjoyed your stories of South Carolina. They seem to fit the latest Pat Conroy book, which is about reading, that I'm going to finish soon. Plenty of lowcountry details.

Seems to me I've heard this arrangement before ("A Broadway Christmas," maybe?) and the now-background vocals and the tap dancing:

Plus, Jule Styne's first name is misspelled.

I just Googled a prospective tenant's name along with his home state and got an array of gay pornographic images that might make even Elmore or MBarnum blush.  What's up with that?

Sorry I forgot to log out before I went off to see the wizard optician.  I now have new lenses in my everyday glasses, but they are not quite right and I'll get replacements that Debby is having remade by the lab that screwed up.  The problem is that I like the edges rolled AND polished and they just polished these, so they look kind of like Coke bottle bottoms (especially the right one).  This is not the first time the lab has made this mistake...

Anyway, I also have my new giant sunglasses and I ordered new reading glasses that may come in before Christmas.

Prospective tenant, perhaps due to his perhaps career, is an ASS.  ;)  Has emailed me multiple times DEMANDING I release the address of the house, which I simply won't do until we've spoken.  Put him in the REJECT pile.  :)

Yes, both those YouTube clips use our Be A Santa chart without permission - I don't know how the choir got on there unless at some point some choir used it and just sang over Michelle and I, which is, I suspect, the case.  I guess everyone is entitled to just use anything they like these days, without asking.  The counterpoint lyric AND melody is not by Jule Styne and Comden and Green, it's by Lanny Meyers, and the arrangement and harmonies are all Lanny and me.  And the tap dancing, lovingly recreated step for step by the twin girls is, of course, choreographed and performed on the album by Niki Harris.
