I'm up, I'm up - after the sleep I so obviously needed.  Wow (wow, spelled backwards).  So, in just thirty minutes I'll begin slicing and dicing and mincing, oh my. 

I'm envious of your ability to sleep so well, and late, when you need to.

DR Jane - I keep meaning to ask: Have you thought about installing blackout shades in your bedroom? ;)

Tonight, the family went to my parents' house.  We had much food to eat and many presents to open.  We decided to exchange names instead of everyone getting something for everyone.  I got Larry, my sister's boyfriend, and I got him the new Mark Twain autobiography (volume 1); a CD, The Barra MacNeil's Christmas Album II; and some coffee.  My niece got me a couple of pictures...framed album-sized promo posters of The Manhattan Transfer's "Vocalese" album and Linda Eder's "Storybook" CD.  They will look great over my piano.  I also got some cash and a Subway gift card from my parents.  And now, I'm home.

By the way, has there ever been a version of "Greensleeves" that actually includes the word greensleeves?

The New Christy Minstrels recorded a version that used the word greensleeves.  I looked for a video clip on YouTube, but couldn't find one.  I did find THIS WEB SITE that has the lyrics (I corrected the typos):

LOVELY GREENSLEEVES BY E.T. LERITT

For twenty summers, youíve lived alone
On a mountain top in your fatherís home
For twenty winters, so white and cold
You have longed for love I will give you

Greensleeves, lovely Greensleeves
You're as wild as spring
And your heart is free
Don't wait, run away with me
For my love cannot wait, till tomorrow

I'm just wandering minstrel man
But I'll make you happy as best I can
I'll write song for you every day
And I'll sing your sweet name the verses

Greensleeves, lovely Greensleeves
You're as wild as spring
And your heart is free
Don't wait runaway with me
For my love cannot wait, till tomorrow

The Do is Done and it was grand.  I think we had more people overall than ever before.  So many, in fact, we ran out of chairs and some people were sitting outside by the pool.  It was great fun, and just when it was starting to break up about twelve more people arrived, so the last of them left about fifteen minutes ago and I've started to clean up.  I think the notes will go up late tonight, as I've got to sit down and relax for a few minutes.  So many nice folks, some kids, our very own Mark and Amy and I'll have more of a list later.
