"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." Saint Francis De Sales

My Slow Takes About Musicals, A Veteran Tribute, and Prayers.

1. “Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy” … for the Spiders and the Irish Lads each dropped another game.
Okay, so it doesn’t rhyme, but you get the idea.

2. More Minions this week. The following is from the blog, “Par la bouche de mess canons.”

3. Our granddaughter, Ekaterina, was in the musical, “Stage Struck The Story.” Dee and I went to the Saturday night performance with our son Todd. Ekaterina sang in the children’s choir and of course was terrific. It was her first "StageStruck" performance. 

4. Pam and Tony invited us to join them for “An Evening with the Richmond Pops.” It was held at the newly renovated Richmond’s Altria Theater. The music was presented by the Richmond Pops Band with Joe Simpkins, Director. The evening included The United States Army Voices, “Pershing’s Own.” Beautiful voices that joined the band in a tribute to our Veterans.

5. The evening included a selection of songs from World War ll up to Desert Storm. One of the songs I enjoyed was from the musical “Paint Your Wagon.”

Harve Presnell “They Call the wind Maria.”

6. Although this was not one of the songs, I’ve added it because Vaughn Monroe was part of the Big Band Era, Swing and World War ll.

Vaughn Monroe “Ghost Riders in the Sky.”

7. Please pray for Joan Keenan, her husband Bob joined our Lord 11-20-14. Bob was a good man and my friend and brother in Christ. He fought the battle of lung cancer for the last twelve months with Joan at his side. 

Also please pray for the family of Leighton Fuller. His father, Dorsey Wayne Fuller joined our Lord on 11-09-14. He had been battling cancer for the last several months.
