It's Beginning to Feel a Lot Like Christmas

A night of Christmas caroling at BPYC, and it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

It was a great turn-out for a Friday night, the room filled with BPYC-ers. An added bonus - we've ditched the old wine labels and replaced them with some of Kaarina's choosing. I think my favourite was the McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, a great buy.

The potluck was very convivial. I think the most stunning dish of the night was Wendy's brandy-soaked raisins, which she flamed as she brought them around for tasting. The warm fruit was delicious. Snap Dragon, she called it, because of the accompanying sound.

I had a front row seat to enjoy Grace on violin, Ross on Bass, and Ross W on kazoo/guitar/vocals. Dick joined in on guitar for a tune or two, too. Bob J was sitting at our table and filled the room with his baritone.

It's fun to sing the old standards, and I don't really get much chance to sing in public & in company these days. There is something about singing with other people that feels just great. O what fun to fill your lungs for a G-L-O-R-I-A or a bit of fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-LAAAA.
