G’nite folks. May you have good friends and good cousins and good food!
Greetings. I’m glad to be back. I was locked out for a few days.
Enjoy with me the Ohio countryside enhanced by the TLC of Jo and Harvey Bond.
I don’t know how he ever has time to play dominos with Lita or play on the playground
Or love his Lita….
But he seems to be able to do it all.
He even has time to read Ebenezer and Ninety-Eight Friends.
Long, Long Ago * Allegro * O Come Little Children * Go Tell Aunt Rhodie
Debuting was beginning drummer (or tinner) Aili Selfridge.
Aili soloed on one number. We’re not sure of the title. She composed it as she played for us. Amazing!
We hope the more learned Evan Bond will agree to take promising Aili Selfridge on tour with him. This is still under negotiation.
Thank God for kids and for music. It would be a sad world without either.
Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. Psalm 33:2
Evan played skillfully and Aili was definitely joyful.
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Mark 10:14
We’ll talk more about kids next time.
Ebenezer and Ninety-Eight Friends talks much about kids and music. Grab a copy.
One day she decided she was tired of them and wanted them removed. The royal great grandmother was called all the way from the West Coast of that Great Land. Her royal job was to remove the braids from the royal big sister.
The royal great grandmother worked and worked, strand at a time, trying to return the royal big sister’s hair to its original state.
Soon the royal big sister grew tired of this agony.
She called the royal hairdresser, who removed all the braids by cutting and washing the royal big sister’s beautiful locks.
Alas, the royal big sister lived happily ever after, well somewhat happy for several minutes.
Alas, Cinderella has found the golden hat. She no longer must toil and slave. The golden hat will bring her wealth and happiness, though it will be difficult for her to see where she’s going with that big hat on.
These stories don’t end happily ever after like they used to. But we came as close as we could.
This unlikely story took place in the unlikely city of Cincinnati, Ohio.
