I returned to Strong House for a post Thanksgiving get together with the old folks.  I broke out some new, old tunes (Red River Valley- what a sad song!), and got to play ‘Sam, You Made the Pants Too Long’ for Sam.  He’s fairly disconnected, but when the whole room sang that refrain, his face lit up like a candle.  Powerful stuff.  Anyway, I got to practise my Christmas stuff for Saturday.  Good stuff.
