(Psst! Don't forget to vote in our "worst house project" contest! It's more fun than a barrel full of pundits!!!)
I am SO COLD! It is freezing in Chicago. September got away from us because of work and put us behind schedule. So, that insulation in the attic? Those stripped and repainted storm windows? The weather stripping?
Um. Those aren't done.
So, we freeze. And as we freeze, we sing to stay warm. Right? Oh sure. We're dunderheads that way.
We start off with "Whispering" because we are afraid to open our mouths too wide. Teeth will freeze.
We strike up a rousing rendition of "On the Road to Mandalay" because that sounds warmer than where we are now.
Moving on to sheet music where the people look warm because they are huddling together...
Or on the cover of "The Moon of Manakoora." Dorothy Lamour always looks warm.
We would like to curl up by the radiator and "Let the Rest of the World Go By." But that is not likely to happen. :(
So "Where Do We Go From Here?" Into the trunks to look for the heavy blankets. It's going to be a long week.
p.s. This last piece of sheet music is kind of a mystery. It is from the Girl Scouts of America and I can't find any definitive reference to it online. Anyone know the story behind this one?
