Did you know... that Guinness is the lowest-calorie beer going? At least, this is what I was told last night at McCarthy's Pub! I went there with some old friends from FWC (Heather and Emily, for those of you who know them), and Lorraine's mother, June Dunn, who is in from Ireland and wanted to go out on the town for an evening. We had fun down there--I met some interesting people, including a professional comedian, and June had "great craic" talking to some young fellas from close to where she lives in Ireland. The last time I was at McCarthy's, it was on a Wednesday night with Alan and Matt (see the July 25th Vine entry), and we were almost the only ones there. Last night was totally different--the place was hoppin', with standing room only, and only two girls taking care of the entire place. I was in awe of these two women; I don't think I could have done what they do. They were so efficient and unruffled. June and I plan to do it all over again on Thursday night; it should be interesting. She pronounced me "her best friend", but I suspect that may have been the Harp talking. We have made a sort of "tongue-in-cheek" pact--she's looking for an American man and I'm wantin' an Irishman, so we're going to be on the lookout for each other. (Actually, I'm just interested in living in Ireland, man or no; I suspect she feels the same about America, but who knows?)
I got a call yesterday afternoon from a church I sang at last fall; they want me to sing at a little fair that they will be having in October. I had been approached about this last fall, but for some reason thought it took place in the summer and that they had forgotten about me. They want me to sing about a half-hour's worth of songs--from 8:30 to 9:00 AM!! I just checked my calendar--they said October 6th, which is a Sunday, so maybe I ought to call and confirm. I thought it was a Saturday; in fact, I'm sure the guy said Saturday. Oh, well, I'll get it straightened out. If anyone's interested, the church is the Hutchison United Methodist Church in Bourbon County (I'd say Paris, but it's actually closer to Lexington). There's a friend of mine I've been wanting to do a duet with; I think I'll call him and see if he wants to work it up for this fair.
Hi, I'm Debi. Once in a while I have a thought and I like to write it down before it goes away. This is where I write it.
