The nice thing about having your own blog is that you can write about anything you want, any time you want.
And while I know that I’m likely to get some criticism from those who think this blog should be serious Peabody issues all of the time, tonight I bring you something that still has constant companion and I feeling good, and smiling on this rainy Friday night.
We were visited tonight by Alex and Lea Romano and the Caring Carolers!
We were treated to a rousing chorus of “The 12-days of Christmas,” and all we had to do was make an offering to Haven From Hunger. Actually, we didn’t have to make any offering at all, but these kids, these great kids, who make you feel wonderful about our future as a city and a country, go around our Jordan Acres neighborhood each December, spreading good cheer and requesting a little something for those less fortunate than us.
We donated some non-perishable food, but you could also donate a check made out to Haven From Hunger. Or, you could just enjoy the carols. Although – unless your name is Scrooge or Grinch – why in the world wouldn’t you give these great kids something for their efforts?
Of course, being the perpetual wise ass that I can be, once they were done singing I just couldn’t help myself, and asked them: “hey kids, what the heck did you do with the money your mom gave you for those singing lessons?” OK, so a few of them were a little off key. It was the thougt that counted.
And right now, thanks to them, we’re feeling good and realizing that Peabody is a pretty nice place to live, amd if these young people are any indication, our future is bright.
Thank you Caring Carolers, and Merry Christmas.
