Hello everyone Granny's favorite son here to let ya know her internet is offline again. She will be online as soon as possible.
peace love and buttercups, tatootim
And now I'm back. The gremlins have crept away. I finally turned everything off, waited a while and then turned it all back on. It worked. We're having some rain but I'd think if the net went down, the t.v. would too and it didn't. Weird.
I had a houseful of kids this afternoon. They were all singing along with Christmas music on one of the music on demand channels. Must have been eight of them in there. I got into the spirit of the thing for a while and played along on the piano. I know all the Christmas stuff so it's just finding the same key. Actually wouldn't have mattered; each of the kids had their own which were entirely different from the t.v. I tuned to the television version at least somewhat. My old, battered piano is slightly out of tune and the B flat below middle C is horrible. We managed though and we'll probably be doing more singing between now and Christmas. I don't play much these days but the sing-a-longs are fun. The neighbor kids were so surprised when I started playing along with the t.v. "How Do You Do That?" they said.
After the second run through of Twelve Days of Christmas I'd had enough fun for awhile. It was worse than the time they got hooked on "American Pie"
Now it's quiet, the girls are almost ready for bed, and school starts back tomorrow. I'm hoping the rain stops by then but they're predicting more plus a temperature drop.
Hi to Old White Lady who writes Morning Somewhere.
I'm keeping this short in case the gremlins attack again.
Thanks to all for the comments. Jim never did show up over here. Means he missed out on the pie. Serves him right. Seriously, he had a very short time, wanted to visit his other kids, and spend time at home. I can understand that and he'll have much longer over Christmas.
Take care everyone.
