Looks like we had 53 people today, and it was a lovely gathering. Somebody requested that we not sing political songs, and I said that was not a request I could honor. That person left. That's too bad. We had a few political songs, and a lot of others. I would say that the atmosphere wasn't overly political, but we generally don't suppress anything. We let people choose whatever songs they want to sing.
We limit conversation so we can get in lots of singing, but we really can't ban political songs.
Thanks for coming, everyone.

I called on on the 4th of July from the emergency room, which is why I couldn't always listen nor could I sing. My back didn't just go out, it took my left leg with it. Anyway, if I *coulda* sung, here's what I woulda sung. One of my favorite I Love America songs, set to a haunting melody, and sweetened by the immigrant's point of view. Also, the one line that just spoke to me, dans ma douleur. Not sure whose version this is, from my folks' records:

When I first came to this land, I was not a wealthy man
So I got myself a shack, and I did what I could.
And I called my shack “Break My Back.”
But the land was sweet and good and I did what I could.

[Each verse repeats this form, with a different acquisition and nickname]

...cow...No Milk Now
...wife... Run For Your Life
...son ...My Work's Done

But the land was sweet and good, and I did what I could.

You're in good company, Mrrzy! Fred Maslen sang this very song near the start of the singaround!
Hope you have a swift recovery, all best wishes.

I forgot to say each verse repeats the previous idea, thus by the end

... I called my shack, Break my back
And I called my cow, No milk now
And I called my wife, Run for your life
And I called my son, My work's done
But the land was sweet and good...

And thanks for the well-wishes.
