My mother-in-law died last week. She was ready to go. She passed in a deep sleep, heavily sedated because otherwise the pain of her failing organs would have been dreadful. We had the funeral, then flew home among crowds and piles of lost luggage.

I am now ready for Christmas. This morning the cat woke me up early, the house and streets are silent, there's snow on the ground, and I turned down the sound on the computer and went looking for some good tunes.

To heck with pagan origins, to heck with the O antiphons, to heck with Gregorian chant. I am going to learn "Let It Snow" and "Silver Bells." And I'm not going to do "Silver Bells" in the traditional mournful 'country' style, either.

In the car yesterday, I sang the song along with the DH, and I told him to try and make the bells sound silver, and he did.

Here's a good site where I got good MIDI's for both songs. They didn't turn out to be HTML docs, and they didn't have goofy note times. They are nice, playable MIDI's. Thank you, Vonna.

Now to put the chords on these babies...

Merry Christmas, everyone.
