Munch and Mingle - Singing Angels

Once a month we have Munch 'n Mingle.  When I retired I looked forward to adding this event to my calendar.  We meet at 10 am and end with a light luncheon.  Each month we do something different.  This month Sue brought her ukulele and electrical key board.  During the month we each gave her the name of a favourite song.  She then looked up the music and words, and prepared hand outs.  Today Sue played each song and together we all sang along.  Before each song the person who selected the song  shared why the song was a favourite.  During many a song there was not a dry eye among us.  Some were light and sassy while others brought special meaning and memories of events of days gone by.  What was mine you ask?  Green Sleeves.  It was a melody that I selected to figure skate to at a figure skating event I performed in when I was a young girl.  Yes, back in the old country.  The melody reached deep inside of me as a young girl and still does today.  I had not heard it in a long time.  

  Sue singing along as she played.

I think that is wonderful! What fun to get together and have a simple but entertaining afternoom. The tables were decorated cute and adorable, and the food look really yummy! I also love that song, Greensleves, especially by Manheim Steamroller. I would love to see a picture of you in your skating outfit, just a suggestion. Have a great week-end, love ya!
