Ring, a-ling, a-ling…


Brasstown Ringers

Joy and I attended a lively handbell bell ringing performance at her church yesterday afternoon.  The Brasstown Ringers once again brought a beautiful selection of music to entertain the audience, and get us all in the Christmas spirit.

Haley and I took lessons with this group a few years ago to help us with our own wee handbell playing at our church.  Unfortunately, it takes lots of practice and lots of folks to make a handbell choir, and we just don’t have enough folks dedicated to this endeavor.  Bugger.  Maybe someday we can get active again.

MM and I did run into Mrs. Claus the other night, hanging out with some old guy dressed in red, but who wasn’t Santa…but we won’t tell on her, and I know y’all will keep it a secret!

Mrs. Claus, Lamar

My sweetie and I are still working on year-end stuff.  I need to do some Christmas gift wrapping, check my list twice (you can’t check it just once), and get a few more things cleared off my desk.

It’s just another day in cold Mayberry, where we are already dreaming of palm trees and flip flops.

Life is good, y’all!

Fun day yesterday!

Oh I love the bells. These folks are so talented. Hard work indeed.

Yes you have to check your list twice. I do the same.

It's raining here and I'm happy about that. In fact it's supposed to rain all week. We so need it.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥

how fun! I'd be the dork with the off timed ring... then I'd drop the bell and probably swear. LOL!

Hanging out at home and resting. Nothing exciting here.

I bet the bells were just lovely! LOL at Jean's comment. That might be me, too. :)

It's been quite nice during the day, mid 60's, but who ordered all these freezing temperatures at night? Not I.

ho ho ho! big hugs xoxo
