Lovely, frogprince. Do you know what species and/or variety they are? I'm guessing a reticulated iris of some sort?

Haven't been posting, and only checking in about once a week to catch up, but still always here. Those of you who are Facebook 'friends' are aware that my sister, Annie, has been here and very busy building another shed and doing home repairs/renovations for me from her deep well of generosity with her time, talents and heart while I come home, see private clients after hours, then collapse in a heap of mental exhaustion. And feeling guilt generated from my own psyche that I don't have the energy and motivation she has.

Hope you are already recovering from the 2nd procedure, Frug.

Invisioning Jane's bench, Nigel.

This landlubber sometimes dreams of the wonderful sea chanties Mudcatters have introduced me to, starting with Barry Finn, who I miss so dearly.

Irises from an old, small family cemetery up on a low ridge in eastern Kentucky are blooming in my yard now. Was a special trip at the time, made even more special by the memories of how much delight Daddy took in it. He determinedly climbed up low ridges through pastures and rough tracks that only a jeep or tractor could have climbed with his cane that could be converted to a little tripod seat to rest the back and knees just before they completely gave out, then climbed again to walk among the gravestones of our ancestors and listen to family stories told by his 2nd cousin who he had not seen since a young boy, and who still lived where his family had lived since just after the Revolutionary War.

A little song for all of us. Why Worry Now

sandra

way back in the 80s or 90s a friend's husband died suddenly & she arranged for a bench in his memory in her churchyear. He was not religious, but every Sunday he took her to church & stayed in the yard or nearby reading his paper until she was ready to go home. They had been married for about 25 years & I think I remember he took her to church all their married life. I think.

Nigel, I understand your privacy concerns for your family.

Wendy, your privacy settings prevented me from seeing your photos, and I understand that, too.

For several years I did not set privacy restrictions on my Facebook account. Then I went to Ireland for two weeks and wanted to prevent everyone except my friends from seeing posts that indicated I was away from home that long, so I tightened my settings. When I came home I kept them tight so only my friends could see photos of my grandchildren. And now, as they are reaching ages when they are less closely supervised by their parents, I have stopped sharing any photos of them!

Chantey Lass I have put a photo on my Facebook page, please feel free to look,at wendy ann simon, just ask to be my friend. There is also a photo taken in September 2013 ,mum is with the Chaplain General of the Royal Air Force when he dedicated the bench. My mother was a Waaf in WW2 and I have been reading her letters of April 1945, with VE Day next week , her memories of that day are very interesting. I may post them here if you would like to read them. I put a memory book together for mum three years ago and much of the information was taken from the two hundred letters that she wrote to my father while he was serving in N Africa, Malta (during the siege) and in Italy.

Nigel, dad received his MBE for charity work for RAFA. He raised an enormous amount of money for ex RAF men and women, and was a member from the end of the war till he passed away. His autobiography is quite an interesting read and I learnt so much about him when I read it, that generation kept lots of their memories to themselves, but I am sure the accident had a profound effect on him for the rest of his life.

May many children and teachers enjoy Jane's bench for years to come.

With love

Wendy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Wendy, how lovely to hear from you. The story about your Father moved me deeply. The cruel irony of airmen losing their lives in a road accident, which, by good fortune, your Father survived, leaves me lost for words. Sounds as if your Father went on to lead a full & productive life. You don't get an MBE for doin' nowt!
       There is something wonderfully symbolic about a memorial bench...one sits, leans back, perhaps gently touching the inscribed name & in so doing, the dear departed continue to 'support' as they surely did in life.
Dean & Chantey...kind words, thank you. As for a photo, it's possible that one of Jane's children might post on Face Book, but I can't say more than that. I'd love all of you to see the bench, in situ, but a photo would almost certainly reveal Jane's surname, which, for privacy reasons, I feel I must protect. I do hope you are not offended by my response.
                           With Love to You All,
                                                          Nigel & Ann

Nigel, how lovely to have a bench in Jane's memory in a place she loved.

I had a bench in my father's memory put in the churchyard in St Peter's Church in Little Rissington . Dad visited that church every September on Battle of Britain Sunday to remember ten airmen who died in a horrific crash during the war when the coach they were on ran into a broken down lorry in the blackout. My father was one of three who escaped ,badly burnt but alive. He always felt guilty that he was alive.

He also arranged for the churchyard to be looked after by the war graves commission, and fund raised for the RAF stained glass window that is in the church.

So if you are in the Cotswolds, do go and sit on his bench and enjoy the peaceful beautiful churchyard. It says "In loving memory of Reg O'Neil MBE." I shall go again this September and remember his friends.

With love

Wendyxxxxxxxxxxx

Jane taught in Primary & Secondary Schools...her first love was always Primary, a rôle at which she excelled. One of her final wishes was that a bench be erected at her favourite school. It's taken much longer than we would've liked, but today, a bench bearing the traditional inscription: "In Loving Memory of......" will be installed. It will be sited in a quiet, landscaped quadrangle...a perfect place to sit & enjoy a sunny break & have some lunch, or just sit......The bench is for anyone & everyone to use. Students, Staff...anyone.

Thank you, Nigel. I don't think of myself as a song-writer---yet. I guess I'm a songwriter wannnabe! The very few songs (three!) songs I've written all have nautical themes, and I'm not sure how good they are, and I'd be crushed by an objective negative opinion. Two of my songs were written when I had insomnia during Mystic Sea Music Festivals. I am sure someone here is more capable than I of writing a chantey for Jane's Rainbow, but if one occurs to me, I'll send it to you. The Mystic Sea Music Festival will be in June, so if I have insomnia again, I might come up with something. Would anyone else here like to have a go at writing one?

ChanteyLass...I must compliment you for your own additions to existing Chanties. With the demise of working ships in sail, there has always been a danger that the Chanty as a genre could end up, consigned to the annals of history. Yes, we have the recordings of Cyril Tawney, Stan Hugill, Bert Lloyd (sp.?) et al, but there's nothing quite like a strongly lead, gutsy Chanty. That you are injecting new blood into this unique vocal form is to be applauded...brava! brava! Care to write a new Chanty for the Rainbow, fitted to a tune we are most likely to know?

Thinking of family and friends of Don and Winnie Thompson as they feel their loss and remember the good times they had together.

On a brighter and related note- I spoke with Art and Carol Thieme this afternoon. They are glad to be remembered, and continue to retain both sense of humor/humour and delight in listening to music. (See Art Thieme thread, upstairs.)

Carol's 92 year old mother is failing fast, so kindly keep Carol and Art, Carol's mother, and their family members all in your thoughts as you feel moved to do so.

hmmm YES!

Little Blossom by Hank Thompson (for JennieG who has a repertoire of such songs & recitations) with 2 typos corrected.

Oh dear I'm so tired and so lonely I wonder why mommy don't come
She told me to close my pretty blue eyes and when I awoke she'd be home
I guess I'll go down and find daddy I think he went down to the store
That big long room filled with bottles I wish that he'd go there no more
Sometimes he's so sick when he comes home he staggers and falls on the ground
One night when he came in the parlor he kicked my poor dolly around
But I love him and I guess I'll go find him I know he would gladly come home
Then it won't be so dark and so lonesome while waiting for mommy to come
His red eyes gazed wild when she found him her sweet smiling face was still fair
But too late the demon possessed him for he grabbed at the back of a chair
In a moment the whole thing was over the work of the beast was complete
And a poor little innocent blossom lay dying at her daddy's feet

Dean, I tried the first link I got Page Not Found, but the second link took me to the crocuses which are lovely.

Sandra and Nigel, thank you both for your interest in and concern for Don Sineti. Saturday's benefit for him was more sparsely attended than I would have wished, but that may be because many people plan to go to benefits closer to their homes. This one was closest to mine and I probably won't make it to any others. Also some people have sent checks directly to Don.

At this benefit, I summoned up the courage to lead the double-pull halyard chantey A Hundred Years Ago. I had that morning taken the second of four chantey classes at Mystic Seaport. I had written my own verses based on the history of the Charles W. Morgan. I took liberties with the history and rhyming patterns, and it's obviously written by an amateur. I first sang it in the class with a quavering voice but made it through without my throat constricting from nervousness and ended with cheeks flaming with embarrassment. My classmates were kind and encouraging. At the benefit my voice quavered less and so many strong voices joining in was a huge support.
