Once Again as in Olden Days

Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Will be near to us once more.


Janet has held this Christmas party for 40 years.  I have been looking forward to it every year for 30.
Now the kids are adults.  One nine year old grandson sang a stunning "five gold rings" and 
brought the house down.  The traditional carols are sung first, then the secular Christmas songs.

I put the photo through a light "paint" filter to protect the privacy of the tenors.  And the sopranos.

Thank you, Janet.  And have yourself a merry little Christmas.

Sounds like a lovely party which I'm sure everyone enjoys. Appreciate your protecting identities of the people in your photo. I always hesitate to include personal photos on my blog.

It's always fun to sing and listen to the songs of this season!

Ah, now I understand. Did their singing really require anonymity?

I know some singers whose voices should be changed to protect their privacy...
