There's not even a Some eCards for that

Evidently the Red Cross has pre-printed cards to let you know they're sorry they jabbed your arms with no net benefit to society.

Yesterday was a big day for the South Central Wisconsin Sacred Harp Singing Group (yep, all 10 of us).  We hosted our annual all day singing at the Plum Creek Church in Folklore Village near Dodgeville, WI.  For more info about our singing group, click here.

Our tiny group was responsible for preparing "lunch on the grounds" for the 100ish people who showed up for the singing.  What was supposed to be a 3-evening long cook-a-thon ended up being crammed into a Friday night rush to see what we had lying round the kitchen that could be mixed together in edible combinations.

We ended up with meatballs (Crockpot), brownies with melted PB cups on top (back pan), couscous with raisins and pistachios (middle Tupperware), and cheesy rice casserole (front glass pan).  Plus we cut up some celery and carrots and brought them along.

The singing was a success.  In the proud tradition of Wisconsin politics, we nominated and voted Daniel as chairman of the singing while 2/3 of the group was on break.  No, not really.  We didn't even give 1/3 a choice.

Here's Daniel leading Garden Hymn.  I also led, but since I'm the camera woman, there's no picture of me.

Fun was had by all.  No one has a voice today, and my stock in cough drops went up.  Alas, it's time to start preparing for the new work week to come.

What's the strangest greeting card you've ever seen?
