Daily Reminder # 551

Many years ago, I managed to get accepted into the New York Choral Society (go figure) and before I wimped out and quit, sang a couple of holiday concerts at Carnegie Hall with Peter, Paul and Mary. Posted below is one of the songs we sang and it was one of my favorites. It was awesome fun to sing it.  There was another beautiful Chanukkah song that we sang but I couldn't find it. Sigh. Chanukkah begins at sundown on the 20th (when this post gets read even though it's posted near midnight the night before)  so....Happy Chanukkah, everyone!   And something kind of exciting is happening. A friend told me about an agoraphobic cow. (Did I mention this before?)  Her name is Cassie and she lives at that Maple Farms Sanctuary in Massachusetts.  We haven't worked out the times yet, but I'm really looking forward to the experience and hopef

And the Chanukkah story... 

This one is just silly, but the kids in the audience are so delighted that I thought I'd post it as well...

Some things I'm grateful for today: (Items in red are pre-gratitude, an effort to allow myself to want things, to consider the possibility that it would be ok for me to HAVE things and in so doing to inspire in the Creative Forces of the Universe an enthusiastic desire to GIVE me lots and lots of things including lots and lots of money... and to do so soon so I can enjoy it before I die and have it to share with others and leave behind for their pleasure too.)

I'm not sure why this little guy is a
CHRISTMAS moose, but that's what he is.
My Christmas Moose. That's his name.
He's cute, isn't he?

have none of this toy. Cats are just as goofy as people.
