You're so right , Mississippi Man, about 2 things. Rap music?:-(
And the Indian relaxation pan flute music.:-)
In my mind I can hear the pan flute wafting through the mountains. How pleasant!

I know it's hard to dee the good die young while the worthless seem to out live everyone,(especially the town drunk. I lost a good freind to lung cancer in his 30's. It cut me to my soul. Meanwhile the most corrupt and crooked carpet-baggers live to be 80 years old. The bible tells ud that God Maketh the rain to fall EQUALLY both on the heads of the good AND the evil.
Today, it seems that the rains of misfoutune fall only upon the heads of the good, while the evil bask in the sunshine continually.
One possible answer is that we may be angels being tested after Lucifer's origional sin against God. What that sin was remains a mystery.
However, we are left asking, "Where does the rain actually fall.
As you can tell, I'm struggling to hang onto any faith at all.
Suggest the following old song written by an itenerant preacher in 1911 who had spent all his money to board a train to go bring the Gospel to the Indian Nations. He would have preferred to stay home with his wife that was giving birth to their first child. While aboard the train, he was having a "pity party" as to why the bad people sometimes did as well or better than the good and would the Indians even understand him or care and was it just a waste of effort. A fellow passenger saw what he had written and gave him $2 for the lyrics and some years later his son published the lyrics along with accompanying music and it has become an old Gospel Standard even recorded by Elvis and many others.

"Tempted and tried, we are oft made to wonder. Why it should be thus all the day long? While there are others, living about us. Never molested, though in the wrong.

Farther Along, we will know all about it. Farther Along, we will understand why. Cheer up my Brother, live in the sunshine. We'll understand it, all by and by".

Reading this thread is like a mystery grab bag. It could be history, gardening, aches and pains or the advantages to owning a blow-up doll, but it's always entertaining !

The beautiful haunting sounds of the pan flute...a person could just float away with that! I think Id turn the volume to where I could barely hear it, as if the sound were coming to me from another camp, snuggle into the blankets under millions of stars or under a bright moon illuminating the hillside and water.
It would be wonderful to be able play music like you. I can play two things: the radio and my nose- I can either pick it or blow it.
Good Morning everyone
Hey now,....your first line right above describes the sound of this music a lot better than I did, thank you WIT2. About playing music, my desire has settled down to a mild roar. It seemed like around about midnight I'd reach a natural high. If we didn't do one more, I'd lose it. But if we did do one more, I'd lose it anyway. No way to win so I just backed off and play here at the ole casa with several others once in a while. "Quote": Don't think twice, it's alright."

I forgot to turn the light on over the chicken waterer last night, so I suppose they have ice for breakfast. I will make amends with some warm water and some green beans for a treat to garnish their scratch grains. Then come get dressed and go to church and maybe the chickens will learn how to forgive also.

Good morning all.

Farther Along. Thank you AW for bringing the story of such a humble, honest song. Reading the lyrics made my heart dip a little yet put a smile on my face. The dip comes from all the memories of watching, hearing, studying my dad, a minister, play his guitar and sing this very song.
I'm struggling with the time of the year. I know I have to go on because my children are exploding with excitement, joy and anticipation if the holidays. I, on the other hand, wish I could lay in bed covered with my blanket, drowning in my tears, sorrow, and the long ago memories of all my family gathered together. I'm thankful God has given me a loving man, three beautiful children. Most thankful. But, I sure would love to have my mom, dad, sis, brothers in my circle one more time. I thought as years pass, that I would manage the hollow feeling in my heart more easily. I feel Ive worsen.
Sorry for the ramblings. Didn't know my heart and mind was in that mode this morning.

My chickens! My chickens!! I need to do something about their water. Should I get a heated waterer or what type of light bulb do you use? A heat lamp? I could put a heat lamp on a timer? My little flock is fairly close to electric so a long outdoor extension would work. I MUST take care of that today.

I am glad that song offered you some comfort even with the pain of the hollow feeling. This season could also drag me down if I allow it. Primarily because this season brings memories of the long term wife's health issues that began 10 years ago and she passed during the same time frame 8 years ago. As I near the end of this trail of life of my own, here is another old Gospel Standard that is dear to my heart and comforts me and is no doubt another that your father sang. I particularly like the Elvis version of this and Mahalia Jackson is awesome on it as well. Both can be heard via YouTube:

"Precious Lord, Take my Hand.. Lead me on, let me stand. I am tired, I am weak, I am worn. Through the storms, through the night; lead me on to the light. Take my hand Precious LORD, Lead me Home".

I just have one of those clamp on pan bowl lights (securely tied in palce to keep the chickens from knocking it loose) with a 60 watt bulb suspended around 18 inches above their water. It is in a corner out of the wind and the waterer is the bottom 1/2 of a 5 gallon plastic drywall bucket surrounded by a 2 X 4 frame to keep the bucket in place.

A lot of churches are dropping the traditional songs from their services. That is so sad. On the other hand My BIL is the minister of music at his church and they informed him they wanted only traditional. It seems to be such a big controversy now. Some churches even offer both types of services on Sunday morning. While Growing up, our little church mixed it up with the old 3 songs (1st,2nd and last verses lol) and a lot of choruses during the "testimony service" . Now those choruses are generally called contemporary songs. But we had the best of both. Seems like the opposite ends of the spectrum could enhance their services by including both.

Last week I attended funeral services at a church close to Winchester. None of the traditional songs and it was a beautiful service.
Some Day--there'll be no more sorrow.
Some Day--we'll walk hand in hand.
Some Day--maybe tomorrow
We'll walk together to the promised land.
We'll see Noah, and prophets of old,
Walls made of jasper, streets of pure gold, yet with all this there's nothing to compare--the face of our Savior, His Glory to share!

Not a traditional funeral but very heartwarming and joyous. Being at the church with the keyboard, guitars and computer made everything familiar and more comfortable for everyone. If you haven't guessed, this was a Pentecostal church funeral. Lol. Maybe if my moms, grandmothers, mother in laws december funerals had been like this I wouldn't find Christmas music/season so depressing.
