At Last

After a six-week break over the holidays the Yesterukes were back together and ready to entertain.

And the Young at Heart members at Reedy Fork Baptist Church were ready to listen. They had such fun and after the program, so many said something like "I had not heard that song in years." Or, "I'd forgotten about that song--but when you started, I still knew all the words."

And again, we were well fed. There was so much food. This was the table AFTER everyone had been through the line. 

When we came to the end, the audience was generous with their applause and one man was waving his hand and saying something about ".....again." When the room quieted, he repeated his request. 

We are always prepared to do an encore even though it's rarely needed. We thought, "Here is our chance!" But when we could hear him, he pointed at Mary Ellen and asked, "Would that lady swoon again?" Our band members have the best time when we play and it shows. One of our front row regulars has a dramatic flair and often does a huge comic "swoon" during a romantic solo sung by one of our gentlemen. 

So swoon again, she did. She said it was much harder to swoon on demand! 

At Last, Glen Miller, 1941
