Singing on the Square

Some old fashioned sounds downtown today, with a Mennonite choir singing (and some preaching) in the bandstand. Listen on this video. Your extra bonus is a slide show of the Square. The song..."There's a Fountain Free" by Mary B. Slade 1876. "Will you come to the fountain free?Will you come? ’tis for you and me;Thirsty soul hear the welcome call:’Tis a fountain opened for all."

another present from the crows

The crows that visited me last winter left another present besides the sand on my garage roof. (see previous post). Besides sand, they spew poison ivy seeds from the berries they eat, and they're sprouting now under every tree they roosted in, including the wild cherry tree in my yard and the oak tree on the west side of the Cottage.
