On occasion my Dad used to hum a macabre old song:
Take the cylinders out of my kidneys
The connecting rods out of my brain
The crankshaft out of my backbone
And assemble the engine again.
My Dad is long gone but for some peculiarreason when I heard about the Organ Donation mentioned below -- scroll down to read all about it -- I found myself humming it too...
On a more cheerful note, we will indeed be playing and singing again (and having one heck of a good time) this Sunday afternoon at 'The Amazing Coffee' in Madoc. 'The Coffee' is on the corner of Russel St. and Prince Albert just a couple of blocks south of Hwy 7. Highway 62 (Russel St.) runs right past the door!
Bring your instruments, your voices and your songs and join us for more amazing music at our weekly acoustic jam in
Madoc. We'll be starting up the tunes around 2 in the afternoon and running until 4 pm or after.
Thanks to everyone who comes out to join in -- playing music together --"bringing it all back home". Welcome new faces, familiar ones and small faces too. And welcome to all the people whose pleasure it is to stop by 'the Coffee' on Sunday afternoons and listen to the music while they sip their coffees, enjoy their sandwiches and pastries, use the high-speed internet...
You just never know who will be there to share a tune or two, or several...
So come on out this Sunday aft and "get yer lovin' spoonful". Help us make just a spoonful of Amazing Coffee worth 2 or 3 cups of that other stuff from up the road.
Peter Fletcher tells me that Riverside Music in Trenton has a couple of Organs to give away "FREE to good homes". I know nothing about what kind of organs they may be -- except that you can play music on 'em -- what age they are or what condition they are in (reference the song quoted above). If you're interested, get in touch with Riverside Music and ask.
See you Sunday!
