Because I choose to sing in the FUMC choir, this is a busy week.   We performed (sung) at church last Sunday - as expected.  Wednesday night rehearsal - long rehearsal with hired brass players from Dallas.  5 of them.   2 trumpets, 2 trombones, and a French horn.   I understand that two of them are working on doctorates in music, another teaches private lessons and makes a living, and the 5th is a regular ole music student.  They really have an understanding of their skill.

Thursday night service - Maundy Thursday.   A short but sweet service with communion.
Good Friday night service - not much to say other than we had a great deal of symbolism in the service.
No Performance on Saturday but daughter Christine drove up from Round Rock to spend the weekend.  That is a bit time consuming.
Sunday was a marathon.  Had to be at choir practice by 7:45 a.m. - 1st service at 8:30 - re-rehearse with the visiting brass at 9:30 - 2nd service hit at 10:50.   There was a lot of singing, not just today but all week.  And RESPONSIVE READINGS?  Don't get me started.  I don't think I have recited responsively this much since I took the wedding vows 50 plus years ago.    A lot of talking was going on.  Our preacher Bayard Pratt did a quite commendable sermon for both services.  

After church service the spouse and Christine decided it was a trip to Sirloin Stockade for lunch -- Sir Stk is a Golden Corral or Ryans - depends where you live.  The menu is pretty much the same every day of the week - after about 5 years of eating there, it is not too exciting.  What can you do with beef, fried chicken, baked ham or turkey, so forth.  I had a couple of sirloin steaks which were fine.

During lunch the two females announced we should go to the Dallas Arboretum today.  We did.  That is such a nice place to visit.   When we were there the last time, we joined, so today's visit was free - less gasoline and refreshments.  That ends the week pretty much.

Tomorrow morning my wife and daughter to the monthly Corsicana Quilt Guild meeting.  I willl stay at home and baby sit the dogs  - our 5 and her 3.   It should be a fun morning.

If you read this think there would be a trace of humor, you were wrong.  Next time per chance. I did leave out the part where I couldn't find my phone for a long time.  Finally found it on the dash of my car.   Didja ever have one of those tiring weeks? meanwhile - this coming week will be less taxing unless you consider I am taking my income tax stuff into a  CPA on Tuesday.  That will be taxing.
Y'all take care.
