Baby, It's Cold Outside

Cold outside, but warm inside...inside the Family Life Center at Shiloh United Methodist Church, where the YesterUkes sported their new long-sleeve shirts. When the YesterUkes formed as a band, they never thought about lasting long enough to need to buy a second shirt. But here they are, 14 months later, still playing and still in great demand! And now dressed for winter.

The senior members at Shiloh UMC warmly welcomed the YesterUkes, who provided a pre-Thanksgiving program of golden oldies. Audience members sang along with the band, enjoying songs that were their favorites in years past. Toes tapping, fingers drumming a rhythm on the table top, and heads nodding were a sign that folks were having fun.

As they played, the scent of Methodist incense (actually, the aroma of home-cooked food) enticed everyone--and the Methodists did not disappoint. After the music, tables were laden with platters, bowls, and dishes of delectable food there for sampling...and maybe sampling again. There was plenty for "seconds." Could we call this a training session for the Thanksgiving meal? When we say our band is growing, we hope it's only means that we've gained a new member or two---not that we've increased in girth! It's a constant hazard...all these wonderful dinners. Yum!
