A little plug for the Corsicana Swing Orchestra -
Thursday night (6 pm) we played an hour concert for a local old folks-type home. About 12 -20 of them showed up from their private rooms to listen. Normally some will leave during the time we play; but, this time, all seemed to stay to the end sometimes singing along with our Christmas tunes.
Afterwards, the joint fed the band: sandwiches - chips - tuna something - and plenty of mustard. This is one of the free gigs we do every year. I must say the audience seems to enjoy hearing the band play. After the job several band members sat around and talk for almost an hour. It was a good time had by all. I suppose it would have been more fun if I had walked off with $100...that rarely happens. Watching that little short lady on the front row sing along on a couple of songs (her short legs swinging under her chair), maybe that is good enough pay for now.
We all want credit for this when we reach the Pearly Gates.

A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie. (Goodbye in 2021 to Oscar the ball boy and Bruno the larger twin) & my wife -- penned by a retired Texas H.S. band director - just nonsense thoughts unrelated to each other or anything other than what's happening and comments.
