This is what we have to put up with when we are trying to be serious and practice for our Christmas performances. They arrived at our coffee time, "Rippen Ray", "Mello Maurice"," Voluptious Vera" and "Ready Ralph" ready to join the ghosts and goblins on the morrow....the very idea,and I hear others were supposed to arrive as well but over slept.It's no secret that was probably "Articulated Al"as he has been keeping late hours.(The editor had some much more discriptive adjuctives, but felt they may not look so good in print!) All of those who preferred Auction Sales in Summerside are well behind in the Christmas program, but never mind, they have time to catch up.For your information , the Christmas Program is now etched on paper for 2010.
Happy Halloween everybody.....we love you all and it's all about the good times. The next Smugulele will be more serious, but the Christmas party is booked for December 18th.......any new ideas?

Garden Home Halloween Party

SMUG played again today at the Garden Home with an hour program that was well received by all of those attending. One lady was kind enough to rise on three occasions and say how much she appreciated our being there. Another was wanting to purchase some of our tapes, which of course we don't have, but she thought we should, and yet another wanted to know where we learned all of those old pieces that her mother and father used to sing! It was a wonderful afternoon and Linda Harding, the activity director, booked us for a return visit in February.If you look closely you can see the wonderful artwork pertaining to Halloween on the windows behind SMUG. Linda and Nancy Horne supplied "treats" to SMUG at the end of the performance. We all had fun and look forward, even more, towards our many up-coming performances.

Ham and Eggs for Breakfast

As both St.John's Lodge and SMUG were at the same place at almost the same time this morning, we got to practice and play for those enjoying the ham and egg breakfast put on by St. John's Lodge in the Carl Petersen Hall.
