If Anyone Still Cares....

I know I haven't been the best blogger in the world the past 6 months. I'll try to explain my busy life over there.
He Keeps Me Singing will be deleted soon, so, please check me out at my new address.

Kinda Overdue...I Know...

It's been a while since I did a REAL post. I apologize, things have been super busy around here. Grace and I have been taking band lessons together with a couple of other girls we're friends with, and Abbey is taking Mandolin lessons. Our teacher is currently touring with....The CHIEFTAINS!! (note: if you have the volume turned up, you'll hear them playing) :)

So, March 11, we will be headin' down to Atlanta to hear them at the
Woodruff Art Center! That's my big news, also, when Miss Richardson, our teacher, gets back, I'm going to start fiddle lessons! I got a fiddle back in 2008, but we never found a teacher, (well, we did, but, that's another story) Now, I'll finally get a chance to really learn some stuff. All I know now is Cripple Creek, Ruby with the Eyes that Sparkle, and John Ryan's Polka.

Pretty limited, I know.

Post more later!!

Wit and Wisdom

From Poor Richard's Almanack

(Photo courtesy of: public.gettysburg.edu)

1757 Edition


Conversation Hints

"Good Sense and Learning may Esteem obtain.
Humor and Wit a Laugh, if rightly ta'en;*
Fair Virtue Admiration may impart;
But 't is Good-Nature only wins the Heart;
It moulds the Body to an easy Grace,
And brightens every Feature of the Face;
It smooths th' unpolished Tongue with Eloquence,
And adds Persuasion to the finest Sense."

*Shortened version of 'taken'

" Many a Man's own Tongue gives Evidence against his Understanding."
~ Benjamin Franklin

Have any of you ever read Benjamin Franklin's 'Poor Richard's Almanack'? It is probably among the many favorite books that I enjoy. :)

By the way, I copied this directly from the book. He capitalizes strange words doesn't he?
